Rachel Barbara Berry, a girl determined to make it out of her small hometown Lima and to the bright lights of Broadway, chokes at the worst possible moment. No matter what you say, as a fan or critic, its impossible to deny that Rachel Berry portrayed by Lea Michele is a star on the rise. She's got a killer voice, great talent, and the determination to get her there. From the age of just 8 months old, when she won her first singing competition, Rachel knew what she wanted and has done everything possible to help get her there from leading her glee club to nationals, sending potential competition to inactive crack houses, hogging solos, alienating just about every one of her fellow glee club members, an even being completely friendless at times. All because she had her eye on the prize. Which only made her choking during her life-altering audition for NYADA that more heart breaking. Acted out brilliantly by Lea Michele, it's no wonder Rachel's "ultimate choke" was considered one of her best performances of the season by critics and fans alike.
