‘Girlicious’ Reject Can’t Belt Like Blondie

CHICAGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The latest Girlicious cast-off just realized her weakness: She can’t belt like 80s icon Blondie.

Girl group wannabe Cassandra Porter was kicked off Pussycat Dolls Present: Girlicious this past Monday (Mar. 10), after she failed to impress the judges while singing Blondie’s high-pitched hit “Heart Of Glass.”

Porter says she wasn’t surprised at the judges’ reaction to her pipes, and knew all along she wouldn’t be able to hit the falsetto notes in the song.

She explains, “The minute I was assigned the song I was like, ‘Oh, crap! This is going to be bad.’ It also didn’t help that [Girlicious judge and Pussycat Dolls founder] Robin Antin told my group that ‘Heart Of Glass’ was her favorite song. There was a lot of pressure involved.”

Porter believes she could’ve done justice to Blondie by singing her much more hard-rockin’ jam “Call Me” instead.

Now that Porter is out of the competition she plans to take vocal lessons with her boyfriend and finally get her falsetto up to par.

Girlicious airs Mondays on The CW.
