The Glee Project Season 2 Review

The Glee Project returns with a second season, inviting 14 new contestants over last season’s 12 to compete for a guest starring role on season 4 of FOX’s hit show Glee. Kidzworld has the scoop.

The Format

Following last year’s format, the contestants are given a weekly theme, such as “theatricality” or “sexuality.” During that week, they must perform a song for a mentor from the show, and then later record a song and music video that corresponds to that theme. The three contestants who are the least successful that week must perform last chance performances for producer Ryan Murphy and the other judges. By the end of the night, one contestant will be sent home.  

The Results

Last year, Ryan announced two winners (Damien McGinty Jr. and Samuel Larsen) and two secondary winners (Lindsay Pearce and Alex Newell). Could this season turn out four new guest stars as well? Since many of the seniors have moved on from the show - main characters like Rachel, Finn and Kurt - there will undoubtedly be room for some new faces to step into the spotlight. Here are some of those potential new faces:
