Blake on TGP 201: I think I bring a positive spin on things.
My first impressions of the other contenders were great. I was so extremely excited to get to know each and every one of them and make friends with everyone. I think deep down we all knew it was the start of a big family. I thought everyone was so talented and awesome.
I think deep down my biggest competition is myself; I think the only one who could possibly hold me back is me. I know that I need to just remain positive, and know that whatever happens is supposed happen.
I think I bring a positive spin on things. I am the kind of person that will try his best and practice but will always be there for everyone if they need me no matter what the stakes are and I believe that helps me stand out.
After meeting everyone I was most intimidated by the fact that EVERYONE had much more musical experience than I had.
After finding out there would be 14 contenders instead of 12… I think I speak for myself along with everyone when I say we all felt excited and intimidated at the exact same time.
I was exceptionally nervous after finding out the homework assignment was "Born This Way," since I hadn't heard the song too much and since most of the song is pretty high for a guy to sing.
I was both excited and nervous after finding out we would all be performing for Lea Michele. I was happy about our performance, though, and super excited to hear the feedback.
I think walking into the choreography room and seeing Zach and Brooke is what made me say to myself, "Whoa man, this is actually for real..." I was so excited to work with them but at the same time could not believe how lucky I was to be given this opportunity.
My one-on-one session with Nikki was definitely fun and a learning experience. It was the first time I had ever been in a recording studio and I tried to do the best I could. It was a lot of fun working with Nikki.
Going into shooting the music video I was super anxious/nervous/excited. I did not know what to expect. I did my best to keep my cool and remain focused but I was INSANELY excited!
I felt positive about the video shoot. I had a lot of fun and believed I did a good job but at the same time I was just hoping for the best.
