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:

Meet the Contestants

  • Abraham (24) - San Diego, CA

What makes him a unique Gleek: he has a crazy red streak in his hair.

  • Ali (24) - New York City, NY

What makes her a unique Gleek: she’s been a singer and actress for most of her life in spite of her paralysis from her chest down.

  • Aylin (19) – Chicago, IL

What makes her a unique Gleek: she’s struggled to make people see her for more than her Turkish Muslim roots.

  • Blake (19) – Miami, FL

What makes him a unique Gleek: he’s a hottie with lots of talents including singing, acting, juggling, drums, and selling parrots.

  • Charlie (22) – Chicago, IL

What makes him a unique Gleek: he struggles with severe ADHD and low-spectral autism.

  • Dani (23) – Orlando, FL

What makes her a unique Gleek: her androgynous style has dubbed her a Justin Bieber look-a-like. But she’s also a self-taught singer, songwriter and guitar player.

  • Lily Mae (18) - Cape Cod, MA

What makes her a unique Gleek: she’s been singing all her life and is determined to show the world that a full-figured woman can be the star of the show.

  • Mario (24) – Lanham, MD

What makes him a unique Gleek: he wears a promise ring to remind himself to treat all women with respect. Hmm.

  • Michael (18) – Chicago, IL

What makes her a unique Gleek: she’s a trained aerialist!

  • Tyler (21) – Boca Raton, FL

What makes him a unique Gleek: he’s still adapting to his new life as a transgender 21-year-old. And he has an amazing voice to boot!
