Andi: Hi, I´m Andrea Ray Green, and I´ll be singing Gives You Hell by The All American Rejects.

Gives You Hell


I wake up every evening

With a big smile on my face And it never feels out of place And you're still probably working At a nine to five pace I wonder how bad that tastes.

When you see my face, Hope it gives you hell, hope it gives you hell. When you walk my way, Hope it gives you hell, hope it gives you hell.

Tomorrow you'll be thinkin' to yourself "Yeah, when did it all go wrong?" But the list goes on and on.

And truth be told, I miss you. And truth be told, I'm lying.

When you hear this song I hope that it will give you hell. (Hope it gives you hell.) You can sing along I hope that it Would suit you well.

- Judges laugh and clap-

Ryan: Andi! You wear great!

Andi: Thank you!

Ryan: They told me you weren´t giving all of yourself this week, but you gave a lot of yourself right now!

Andi: The thing is that at the beginning of the week, I was sad that Connor had left. But I want to win this thing for both of us, and I promise you I´ll give my best everytime just like now!

Ryan: Okay. I hope you do! You were great!

Shake it out


Regrets collect like old friends Here to relive your darkest moments I can see no way, I can see no way And all of the ghouls come out to play

And every demon wants his pound of flesh But I like to keep some things to myself I like to keep my issues drawn It's always darkest before the dawn

Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa And it's hard to dance with a devil on your back So shake him off, oh whoa

And I'm damned if I do and I'm damned if I don't So here's to drinks in the dark at the end of my road And I'm ready to suffer and I'm ready to hope It's a shot in the dark aimed right at my throat 'Cause looking for heaven, found the devil in me Looking for heaven, found the devil in me Well what the hell I'm gonna let it happen to me, yeah

Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa And it's hard to dance with a devil on your back So shake him off, oh whoa

- The judges clap-

Ryan: Wow! Drew! It was amazing!

Drew: Thank you!

Ryan: So how did you feel when you sung that song?

Drew: I felt power!

Ryan: So that´s it! That´s what you need! I really love your story, I think you´re inspirational, but if you want to be on glee you need more power.

Drew: Yeah, I understand.

Ryan: Okay, you did great, you can go.

-Drew leaves the stage-

Robert: Next is Joy.

Zach: Joy needed a lot of coordination and energy at the shoot, and it´s something we´ve allready been telling her for a while, to have more energy and confidence. She felt to the ground at the shoot.

Joy: Hi, I´m Joy Lexington, and i´ll be singing Fighter by Christina Aguilera



Well I thought I knew you, thinkin' that you were true Guess I, I couldn't trust called your bluff time is up 'Cause I've had enough You were there by my side, always down for the ride But your joy ride just came down in flames cause your greed sold me out in shame

After all of the stealing and cheating you probably think that I hold resentment for you But uh uh, oh no, you're wrong 'Cause if it wasn't for all that you tried to do, I wouldn't know Just how capable I am to pull through So I want to say thank you Cause it

'Cause it makes me that much stronger Makes me work a little bit harder It makes me that much wiser So thanks for making me a fighter Made me learn a little bit faster Made my skin a little bit thicker Makes me that much smarter So thanks for making me a fighter
