No matter how they tried, Eileen just never fit at SB. Maybe they should have cast her as Jodie Walker instead. Maybe Krista Tesreau (who played Andi in the show's last months) would have made a better Kelly if they were that determined to recast.
Candiana Grande! probably has the best/most technically proficient voice of all the Singing HWs. The mv itself gave me Destiny's Child/early-2000s RnB vibes. It looks professional and choreographed (even with the shoe-horning of her cast-mates and mom at the end), and it got uploaded onto Vevo's platform, too. Congrats, Candiana!
Wendy's solo dance at the very end, not to mention DIRECTED BY CHASTITY CORSET, took me out.
Coffee & Love was also a bop, just sayin
I like your ideas. Though to be fair, I don't know if when Alan began the show it was going to be an ongoing thing. It seemed like it was just a bunch of Zoom reunions while everyone was in lockdown to bring some cheer to all. They had much more of a spontaneous feel.
I will give credit to Alan for consistently getting good guests. But he still needs to work at actual research and interviewing skills.
