It’s no secret that the judges are supremely critical of Derek Hough, who consistently steals the show yet never gets credit for it. Watch his last two performances for the show.
I’ve said this many times on The Dishmaster before, but once you’re on a hit show like Glee, you have to not only create a celebrity mystique, but you must also watch your brand, to ensure that your personal life doesn’t conflict with your character. That brings me to Amber Riley, who covered Adele’s Someone Like You on her webcam. Though I think she has a great voice, I’m fundamentally against this on principle. You’re on an expensive network television show, and your broadcasting a song on your personal webcam inside your apartment. It looks unprofessional and cheap — and you have an image to maintain.
