That’s right – the next Broadway Star in the form of Elle Woods of Legally Blonde The Musical, has been found! The final was Monday, and we jump right back into the cut short elimination of last week. The judges decide that the only two that will move forward in the competition are Autumn and Bailey.
There’s quite a bit of tension in the air as they prepare for the final audition, but it’s trumped by excitement when they discover their next audition will be at The Palace Theater, where Legally blonde: The Musical is actually performed! They’re excitement is catching as they giggle and hold stands and take it al in.
For the audition, they’ll be performing “Omigod you guys” “positive” and “so much better” on the actual sets with the cast members and a full orchestra…. the next day. It’s time to prove who the real triple threat is – by singing, dancing and acting around the sets, moving parts and trap doors – in heels!
After a really long, and overwhelming audition, the girls are glad to relax, but take different tactics back at the loft. Bailey is confident and rests, while Autumn practices every moment she can.
The next morning, at the audition, the girls are surprised backstage by their parents, who have been invited to the final audition. Bailey kicks it off with omigod you guys, and the judges are amazed with how much she looks the part. Autumn is impressive as well, with her powerful voice. During the moves needed for Positive, Autumn flubs a line, and isn’t hitting the steps, while Bailey’s dancing is amazing, but her singing is off. In the final number, Autumn rocks the vocals, and bailey steps it up and proves she’s almost as strong vocally.
The judges hold nothing back, and point out they were impressed with boy, but Autumn started off on the wrong foot, while Bailey has a bad habit of “shmacting” and looking at the audience instead of her scene partners. Autumn has the best voice, but doens’t come across as a Sorority girl. Both girls have different strengths, and if they could just meld them together, it’d be perfect.
In the end, though, there can only be one! And that one is Bailey! She falls to the ground and cries, before dancing under the streamers and giving her encore – she’s Broadway bound!
