McKynleigh on The Glee Project 104
I was a little scared about the theme this week, “Dance Ability,” because the mentors told me I was having problems connecting with my movement in the weeks before. Vulnerability week I got off easy and did well because there was no dancing, but I knew this week was going to be a challenge. Performing “Hey Soul Sister” for Harry Shum was nerve-wracking! I mean, he is a great dancer and there is much to be desired about my dancing skills.

The hardest thing about this week was coming up with my own dance moves in the homework challenge. But I think Lindsay, Alex, and I were the ones that felt most secure in our dance moves. And I was fine with Alex taking control of the dance class. I think we all kind of accepted Alex as our leader, or at least I did. I felt like he was just helping us. However, I could see how some of the others might have felt like he was being a little controlling. The best part about this week was the choreography for the music video, “Can’t Touch This.” I felt completely out of my element during the video shoot, but I tried to embrace it. I am no rapper, though, and I was soo uncomfortable. That’s a mistake I made, I let my nerves get to me.
I was not surprised to find out I was in the bottom three. I knew that I was going to be in the bottom three. Not only did I know… I knew I was going home. Sometimes I just get these undeniable feelings about things and I know how things are going to turn out and this was one of those things.
The Mentors wanted to see me "perform" a song. And “Last Name” is a song that requires lots of personality and performance. I was thrilled with my performance. I got out there and did the best that I could do. I think that’s why I didn't get too upset about leaving. I knew that I gave it my all, and I wasn't going to go unnoticed.
I was sad about being eliminated like any person would be, but this is definitely not the end of the road for me. I am going to keep trying and I am going to keep pressing on until I make it BIG. Don't be surprised if you hear me on the radio one day, because I am going to make that happen. I will definitely miss all of the friends I made, but I will never forget the experiences I had and everything that I learned.
