It’s the pink attack, once again. OMG! The girls aren’t thrilled to see Cassie come back with lindsey, and says it’s AWN! They get their call sheet, and they’re to dress comfy and casual and head to the fitness studio. There’s nine bikes, and a guy at the piano, and Haylie tells them they’re doing a workshop for vocal skill and stamina which they’ll both need. The Standout performer will get a reward to get a leg up on the competition. They sing some vocal warm-ups doing jumping jacks and crunches, then Seth has them up on the bikes while they sing and pedal at the same time. Emma only quit smoking two weeks ago, and is having a hard time but powers through. They sing as a group, then Seth calls them out one at a time
Haylie tells the girls the stand-out performing gets a mani/pedi with Orfeh, who plays Paulette onstage. Seth thought Celina and Emma rocked it, but calls Lauren the victor. She takes Cassie S. to the spa with her, because she knows she pulled out all the stops after being in the bottom three last week. Cassie pouted a little – she wanted to win, not be the ‘charity case’. Heh.
For the next audition, they’ll be singing “Omigod, you guys” from the show. The call sheet in the morning gives them only an hour to hit the studio, and they manage to make it on top, and discover that when they’re not auditioning as Elle Woods, they’ll be playing the parts of the other girls, so will learn two versions of the same song. Some of the girls only focus on the staring role, and slack when it comes to the chorus. Not good. They’re sent off to practice on their own, and fireworks fly.
Cassie S. gets frustrated when Bailey bails instead of singing the course – she says she lost her voice. Hah. Right. Tension grows, when Cassie runs around singing at the top of her lungs, determined to prove she was underestimated, eve if she annoys everyone.
Audition time! Just one note could get you sent home! No pressure… Natlie and Autumn knock it out of the park, but there are harsh words for many of the others, including Emma and Bailey. When it’s time for Cassie to confront the judges, she says there are plenty of girls who should be cut before her – many whining wannabes from the wings about being thrown under the bus.
Four girls are chosen to face elimination and Cassie S is not one of them, much to the shock of the girls. Emma, Lauren, Celina and Lindsey head to the casting office to face the judges. They call Emma too harsh, Lauren too squeaky, Celina has presence – but the wrong kind, and Lindsey looks the part but doesn’t portray the part with believability – and because of that, she’s sent home.
