Cameron Quits 'The Glee Project' Despite Ryan Murphy's Efforts (VIDEO)

Cameron Mitchell leaves 'The Glee Project'Cameron Mitchell had been close to leaving 'The Glee Project' (Sundays, 9PM on Oxygen) before, and not of his own volition. But he battled his way back to become a fan favorite, only to walk away on Sunday's episode by his own choice, and over the objections of 'Glee' creator Ryan Murphy, who didn't want him to leave.

Onstage to sing for his place in the competition, Mitchell said he was done. "I feel like that, you know, maybe this isn't for me," he told the judges. "Well how 'bout you let us make that decision for you right now?" said Murphy. "'Cause I don't feel like I'm willing to give up on you right now."

Offstage, Mitchell spoke with Murphy privately, and said he was emotional, but had thought about it and was ready to leave. "I'm sad," said Murphy. "I feel like I could have written you a role and I do think that you could have gone all the way to the finals, because I think you could have touched so many people." Mitchell was a bit shaken by that assessment, but he still left the show anyway.

I AM sad that Cameron left, but what really boggles me is Ryan. Throughout the ENTIRE show, he's been whining and complaining about Cameron and how he doesn't suit the show, but the moment Cameron says he wants to leave, suddenly Ryan thinks he'll go through all the way? Was this just bad editing? Did they purposely undermine Ryan's real feelings for him to give some sort of 'Shock-impact' because they thought Cameron was going to win?

I don't know, I still think Cam should have stayed on. Then again, it was either him or Damian, and at that point, I adored each and every one of them except Alex, for some reason.

The glee project has nothing on the actual show but it is a nice substitute. I wish there was less drama though....
