"I'm surging with caffeine and fear even as I speak." Aren't we all?
It's "fearlessness week" on The Glee Project, and Jane Lynch is ready to motivate the contestants to use fear to their advantage. We've got your first look at next week's surprisingly chilly challenges and the first mash-up of the season!
Plus, find out who's hooking up and who's freaking out!
As an improv actress Jane is no stranger to stressful situations, and she explains to the class that a little bit of fear is a good thing when performing. "Keep in mind I will be judging you harshly," Lynch says in her best Sue Sylvester voice.
"No, I won't!" she reassures. "I'll be judging you from my heart. I want you to succeed, so do a great job and have fun!" Now that's an awesome mentor!
In addition to overcoming fear, the group has been assigned their first mash-up. Lynch reveals, "It's not just a mash-up, there's one more element that we're adding: a slushie fight!"
Check out the full clip above to find out the songs included in next week's fearlessness-themed mash-up, plus the contestants' reactions to the slushie surprise!
Fear is definitely in the air at the mash-up music video when Ali tells the director that she can handle a full-bodied slushie attack just like everyone else. Ali tells the camera, "I'm a little nervous as to how I'm going to do this, because I can't sit in my wheelchair and my body doesn't handle extreme temperatures well."
While one contestant is facing a physical fear, two others are dealing with an emotional one. Charlie and Aylin have begun a reality show romance, but they are worried the eliminations will tear them apart.
Charlie has only one request, "You've got to make me a promise, though: Don't miss me if I'm gone, OK?" To which Aylin proclaims, "I can try to promise." Ahh, young love. So sweet and yet so dramatic.
Check out Ali's slushie shock and some star-crossed smooches in the video above!
