Forever Fierce

And now, Ms. Harmony herself, Lindsay Pearce!


It really almost looked like they were about to hand this girl a win some months ago, didn't it?  She killed the song, killed the video, and made the most 'personal growth' (as long as you consider making a girl feel like a horrible person for having self confidence growth) to the point where even I was like "Could this happen? Could these guys really be making the right decision?"

"We haven't stopped believing this whole time!"

Alas, no.  Ryan Murphy had money to make and straight boys to fondle, so of course the grand prize went to two boys who looked like Tiger Beat posters who liked girls.  I said it from the very beginning that Glee wanted a heart-throb, and hey, they got two.  But I also always said they needed competition for Lea Michele, and guys?


Girl TOPS Lea.  I mean, ignoring Damian (hey, the writers of the show have been for sure) is there any doubt of who really belongs on that show?  Lindsay's acting has thus far been superb, and the character they've created for her is funny, vicious, and deliciously divatastic: exactly what Rachel Berry should have been.

But anyways, back to that adorable hot mess we like to call 'The Glee Project.'

"These people are who I have to beat--and I will be FINE with it."

It warmed my heart to have unscripted, psycho-competitive bitch Lindsay back with us for just a moment, after the watered down, freaked out girl we'd been offered in the weeks past.  It must have felt good to just take a deep breath and say:

"I'm going to vocally murder you little fuckers."

 Come on--you could totally see it in her eyes the whole time.




















You know, it's hard to write about this critically, because it was pretty obvious to anyone watching, but Lindsay yet again out-performed everyone else in the video.  The girl was just meant to have a camera on her at all times.

...*crosses fingers for a Lindsay Pearce reality show*

You know, I thought Gimme, Gimme had to be just about as weird a choice as Samuel's 'Jolene'.  The only difference is, and it nearly hurts me to say this, but Lindsay didn't quite make it work.  She sang it beautifully of course, but it was just too...expected a version of the song.  She made it perhaps a little too obvious that she was aware of the implications of the song from a production stand point.


Although any performance that can put that face on Nikki has to be pretty sublime, no?

We all know what happens next--Lindsay gets booted, and then hired to play Harmony, but wouldn't it be more fun to make up what she was thinking?

 "Wait, you're seriously going to pick a homeless man over me?"
 "Now you want to TALK to me after picking a homeless guy over me?"
 "HOLYSHIRTIMGONNABEONGLEE!!!"
"Damn straight, motherf*uckers."

So yes, Lindsay didn't get crowned, but come on:

"Next year's gonna be a blood bath!"

We all know who really won.

  1. I took the throwaway line "...I'm only a sophomore!" as a HUGE indication that Harmony may transfer to McKinely High next season. We can only hope!
