A month ago, I introduced to you the cast of Oxygen’s “The Glee Project“. With less than two weeks before its premiere, the network is giving you a closer look at the 12 contestants vying for a recurring guest role on “Glee’s” upcoming third season. The winner of the competition will score a coveted seven-episode arc which could be the launching pad for their career. Just look what it’s done for Season 2 addition, Darren Criss, who just so happens to be the first episode’s guest mentor. Other Glee stars will appear in subsequent weeks.
The Glee hopefuls channel their inner Gleeks and perform a group performance worthy of the hit Fox show. They perform a cover of Katy Perry’s “Firework”. Even though, the track is my least favorite Perry track, the kids’ performance has me stoked for the show’s debut on Sunday, June 12 at 9 p.m. EST on Oxygen. Check out their rendition and see if it compares to Lea Michele’s version on the show. I think it would be wise for Rachel Berry to watch her back.
What did you think? Personally, I loved it and already have a few favorites. I like Marissa (skinny redhead), Hannah (full-figured redhead) McKynleigh (black girl), Ellis (short-haired girl), Cameron (glass wearing nerd) and Alex (sassy gay black guy). Love, love, love the latter the most. Do you have any you’re rooting for? I’d love to hear them.
