Mercedes or Rachael?
Everyone has seen lastnight's episode of glee, Asian F. Did Y'all love mercedes behavior? Who should have won?
I saw it and it was good. Glad Mercedes got some story. She went all diva and will regret her actions soon enough. I feel her BF a football player ( his words don't hug the enemy) is giving her bad encouragement to alienate herself from the club like a football player says smack to intimidate his opponent. She was already regretting her decision and stooping low to singing with the worst singer ever Sugar. Mercedes made herself look bad to even her friend Kurt.
Totally Rachel. I love Mercedes and everything... but Rachel was willing to share the spotlight, So i don't really know why Mercedes went all diva.
Okay but, Mercedes was better than her. I agree with mercedes partially. This is not the rachael berry show. If mercedes was better than she gets the part, point blank. But i wouldn't have done what she did i believe mercedes was doing too much to prove a point. But it angers me when people say rachael was willing to share the spotlight because she didn't deserve the part and she knows it. She got off easy. and i don't know what mercedes's boyfriend real intentions are. it obvious that she is possibly pregnant. will he be there? who knows.
i would have to say rachel. i think that mercedes was being a complete diva for no reason. in Asian F rachel was actually being a decent person when she was willing to share the spolight with mercedes and was trying to keep their friendship in tact the whole time.
I think the way mercedes is acting is based on her getting a boyfriend. This is her first real relationship and really the first time someone is giving her that kind of attention. Hate to admit it but sometimes we make that mistake of changing ourselves because of a love interest and i think thats exactly what mercedes is doing.
oh and btw her argument of why isn't anyone afraid to hurt rachel's feelings is sooo far from accurate. from the last 2 season's people have definitely gone out of their way to hurt rachel.
@aly Totally agree. Mercedes's boyfriend Shane has influenced her to use the same tactics as he does on the football field, intimidation of one's opponent. She has found out that tactic will backfire in her face big time. Now she gets to join the lonely hearts club with Sugar and Shelby. I hope her selfish actions haven't ruined her friendship with Kurt and Rachel. Yes, you're right she is taken by Shane's attentions, his praise, and his misguided en.couragement to where she has payed the price. She is out of Glee which Mr Shue and all the kids tried to reach her but her aggressive demeanor would not allow her to use reason and common sense. Pride directed her ill fated judgement which has always in the past been a Rachel attitude but seems Mercedes now possesses.
Rachell has always been ostracized for being a separatist, perfectionist, and selfish over-eager,etc. All the other members including Kurt and Finn would bash and belittle her at every expense just humiliate her( as Kurt has said). All have her hurt her including Mr Shue. Lots of her attitude especially s1 was to the extremes and she was humbled many many times. She has approached most members with encouragement and help with insults thrown back at her in return most of the time. Besides Mercedes had the lead in Rocky Horror and was great. Not that she has never been given any credit when credit was due. I'm sorry but Rachel is more suited for the role of Maria with the style of vocals needed for the musical. Mercedes rocked the part of Rocky.
Well I agree with @geewhiz and @aly. Everyone is mean to rachael its right. But i dont think finn is mean to her thats her boyfriend. DERR. But I agree with @love&glee as well. When has mercedes EVER gotten a Solo in a competition? Rachael and Mercedes have the best female voices in the new directions, soooo why don't they ever share the spotlight? Why can't rachael and finn sing the first act in a competition and mercedes sing in the second act? Mr. Shue Always Says "LET ALL KIDS SHINE" But it's always rachael and finn doing the duets in competitions. Once Quinn and Sam Once SANTANA. I think mercedes was acting a little over the top, but why is she wrong for not wanting to be in the backround all the time?
@Wowerz I agree Mercedes has wanted the acknowledgement that she won the role out right. Rachel knew it and told Finn she was better. But the directors and I agree Rachel and her vocal styles and broadway sing style is better suited for Maria's voice. Mercedes is better siuted for the rock and soul style of Rocky in Rocky Horror where she was awesome. But sharing the role served the purpose of pleasing both girls and their talents was a cop out by the directors but I do agree that if they opt to choose both they let both shine equally. Rachel was gracious after realizing they would have a week apiece as lead. As for Finn he is a really good bf this year and backed Rachel when Mercedes called her a kiss ass. I thought that was really low of Mercedes. Rachel wanted to keep her friendships intact. Now runniing for office against Kurt was a selfish act even when she thought she lost the role to Mercedes. But I feel she would eventually drop out. Besides I don't see how either Rachel or Kurt would win because they are losers and are only ostracized to be humiliated in public. Not being realistic by either of them just reaching for straws to get extracurricular credits to appeal to NYADA.
I hear you when Sam and Quinn sang duet and Santana sang at Sectionals. Mercedes would be a better choiceas would Santana. Even a duet with those 2 together would be awesome. Now Blaine is in the mix and all know he will take over the male lead vocals. I love Kurt's lower register. Or even Rachel and Kurt or Mercedes and Artie. I miss these pairs as duets. I'm a lover of Finchel duets also. Not all. But s3 is in full swing with new people coming. Episode 4 is where Damian comes. So no one will know how this Mercedes story will go when he arrives. I just don't want her to be stuck over there like Kurt was apart from the New Directions s2. That was way too long to me. I just want Mercedes and all the seniors to shine and shine their talents brightly this year. You Know.
As said above. This is one reason I'm not looking forward to Ann Hathaway coming to Glee. Too much Kurt so far this season as is. Love Kurt but spread the joy with others not center another storyline around Kurt. Gwynneth was enough. Shelby serves a integral part to the show and is inportant in many levels not just Rachel Quinn and Puck. Ready for more great Glee.
I See Where You are Coming From Now. @geewhiz I Don't Agree At All With Mercedes's Behavior. Mercedes Needs To Stay Professional. But Everyone Has A Breaking Point. Everyone Has Gone Through It, Even Kurt. But Not Like Mercedes. It's just like in the episode 'Funeral' When Rachael Did 'My Man' She Gave Me Chills, And When Mercedes Sang 'Try A Little Tenderness' I Got Chills As Well. Then When Mr. Shue Cancelled Them Saying That "We're Going To Have All Kids Have Their Chance" Or Whatever. But It Was Only Rachael and Finn Singing. Rachael And Mercedes Were The Best So I Believe The Should Have Let Them Do A Number Together. Maybe Thats Why They Lost. It's Not Why They Kissed, I dont Think. I Mean They Were Smoking Weed And Getting Naked During 'Hair' And No One Flinched. LOL. Sunshine Corazon has a strong voice so they didn't compare with her. they should have let mercedes take it home! I Agree With @sgleek. Too Much Kurt. I want To Hear More About Britney And Why She Is Kinda Sheltered. And Artie. And Why Does Santana Have Love Issues?
