‘The Glee Project’ preview: Blake, Nellie rock mash-up music video

“Glee” has become known for its mash-ups over the years, so it really shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that “The Glee Project” is busting out its second one of the season on Tuesday night.

The new music video for “Hit Me With Your Best Show / One Way or Another” actually is pretty reminiscent to the “Glee” cast’s performance of “We Found Love” from the “Yes / No” episode that aired this past January, mostly thanks to the fact that it is set at a pool and red swimsuits are heavily involved. However, the difference here is that this is a swimsuit / slushie hybrid. The producers are obviously looking to see how much some of these cast members have as a threshold for pain, and having slushies thrown at you hurts far more than you would realize. If you freak out after it happens time and time again, you’re probably not the sort of person that Ryan Murphy is going to want on the “Glee” set.

The great news here is that just about everyone manages to stand out in some shape or form during this video. While Lily Mae Harrington seems as though she is the likely winner of the homework assignment thanks to her heavy role in the video, and Ali Stroker also is able to step out of her wheelchair for the first time courtesy of some rather incredible underwater footage. Blake Jenner and Nellie Veitenheimer are our two winners of this video at the moment, mostly because they are able to emulate chemistry better than anyone we’ve ever seen on this show — even Charlie Lubeck and Aylin Bayramoglu, and there are actually some romantic feelings there, at least on Charlie’s end.
