The Glee Project

A Justin Bieber look alike (who's actually a girl).
A Cory Monteith (Cory plays Finn on Glee) look alike with ADHD and low-spectral autism.
A Turkish Muslim girl who's mother doesn't know she's had her first kiss.
A girl in a wheelchair.
A trans gender teenager.
A very talented blind boy.
This list of people and more make up 'The Glee Project' cast season 2.
If you don't know what The Glee Project is, it's a reality show where 12 (or this seasons 14) compete for a chance on Glee by singing and dancing their hearts out.
The Glee Project is hosted by Robert Ulrich, the casting director for Glee. Every week is a different theme that is related to Glee (eg; Individuality, Vulnerability) and a special guest mentor (someone from Glee) comes to The Glee Project, judges their homework assignment song and chooses a winner to get a one on one mentoring session with them for their group music video for the week.
During all the preparations for the music video, the mentors, Robert, Zach Woodlee (dancing) and Nikki Anders (vocals), judge the contestants on their determination for the week and how they show in the areas of the show. At the end of the week, they announce the called back list with the bottom three who have to perform for Ryan Murphy (the creator of Glee). They get given a song the mentors think suits them and they perform it for Ryan. In the end, Ryan makes the final choice of who goes home for the week (sometimes, no one goes home). The elminated contestant performs 'Keep Holding On' then they leave.
The winners from last season are now popular characters on Glee. There's Damian McGinty (he plays Rory), Samuel Larsen (he plays Joe), Alex Newell (he plays Wade/Unique) and Lindsay Pearce (she played Harmony for two episodes).
My favourite music videos last season are:
Firework (Individuality, week one) - http://youtu.be/VdefeabJMWQ
U Can't Touch This (Dance Ability, week four) - http://youtu.be/TQi3bKv3G-o
Don't You Want Me (Pairability, week five and it was a duet by Marissa Von Bleicken and Samuel Larsen) - http://youtu.be/tgX8FH7Ellc

The homework assignments are so cool. Here's a mix of my favourite ones from season 1 and 2:

The Glee Project is an awesome show and I hope if you do/have watched it, you have loved it as much as I have.


  1. Hello Ryley

    I really like your pots about Glee my favourite songs this season are edge of glory and
    hit me with your best shot/one way or another.

    Who did you want to win last year?
    Would you ever try get on the Glee project?


    1. Hey Lily
      Last season I wanted Damian McGinty, Cameron Mitchell and Hannah (I don't remember her last name). If I tried to get on The Glee Project, I'd get reject after the auditions since I lack a good singing voice and I'm not a good dancer.
