|Air date||June 19, 2011|
Theatricality is the second episode in season one of The Glee Project, a spin-off of Glee, in which young hopefuls compete for a seven episode guest starring role on the show.
The contenders find themselves singing Bad Romance by Lady Gaga for their homework assignment. They perform the song in front of guest mentor Idina Menzel (Shelby Corcoran). Idina then decides the winner is Alex who then gets the lead role in the music video We're Not Gonna Take It by Twisted Sister. The music video is about a student (Alex) being harassed in school, and then he would drift off into dream land and become a rock-star saying that he's not gonna put up with the torment. Afterwards, they are judged on how well they get into character and how theatrical they are.
The three contenders that are in the bottom three are Mckynleigh, Ellis, and Matheus. Then they are each assigned a song to sing for Ryan Murphy. Matheus sings Gives You Hell by The All American Rejects. The judges like his energy, but Ryan Murphy questions him about his self-confidence. Ellis sings Mack the Knife by Bobby Darin. The judges are concerned with her constant negative attitude. McKynleigh sings Piece of My Heart by Janice Joplin. Ryan Murphy says he loves her voice, but he doesn't know how he is going to write a part for her in the show. In the end, it is Ellis that is eliminated. She sings Keep Holding On.
