Amber Riley mentoring in Tenacity (Season 2)

In every episode of The Glee Project, a member of the Glee cast mentors the contenders for the theme of that episode. The mentors watch the contenders perform their homework assignment for that week and then judge them based on their performances, and how well they portrayed the theme of the week. The winner of the homework assignment will get some time with the mentor where they will be given advice on how they can improve their performance in the music video. When entering the choir room, mentors bring an item that represents their character, this happening more often on season two than on season one.
