The finale of ‘The Glee Project’ season two aired on August 14 with a winner finally being crowned! Read on for all the details!

On the August 14 episode of The Glee Project, Blake, Ali, and Aylin compete for a 7-episode arc on Glee! After 10 weeks of competition, it all comes down to this night!

Theme: “Glee-ality.” Each contestant had to prove they had the “x factor” needed to win a 7-episode arc on Glee. 

Homework Assignment: “You Can’t Stop the Beat” from the musical Hairspray. Seeing as how the song requires a big production, all former contestants were brought back to help with backup vocals as Aylin, Blake, and Ali fought to come out on top.

Mentor: Chris Colfer is said to be the inspiration behind The Glee Project. Chris first auditioned for the role of Artie, but didn’t land the part (obviously). He later met with Ryan Murphy who felt he needed to created a role for Chris — Kurt Hummel. Chris loved how Blake kept his intensity throughout the entire performance, while Aylin kept her voice up the entire time. Chris was a fan of Ali due to her fun, upbeat “character” throughout. Chris could not choose a winner, so he chose all three. (Is this foreshadowing of how Ryan will choose a winner as well? Let’s hope not.)

Music Video: “Tonight Tonight” by Hot Chelle Rae was selected as the music video with a high school prom as the backdrop. On of last season’s winners, Damian McGinty, was an extra in the video. (I was definitely not a fan of Damian last season and I’m still not this season. At least he won’t be back on Glee!)

Last Chance: The finalists had to perform before Ryan, as well as Glee cast members and the eliminated castmates from their season (Talk about pressure!). The contestants were able to choose their own songs for their final performances. Ali sang “Popular” from Wicked, showcasing her theatrical talent. Aylin sang “Rolling In The Deep” by Adele, showing off an amazing voice that I was totally unaware she possessed. Blake sang “I’ll Be” by Edwin McCain and it was a-maz-ing! The singing was top-notch — and he read a poem, calling himself “that guy” — telling Ryan exactly what he wanted to hear all season.

Blake is crowned the winner and wins 7-episode on Glee, a recording contract and the ability to tour!

What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Did the right person win?

– Christopher Rogers

Why cant all Tv shows be about achieving dreams; instead of fighting and drama?

I was impressed by all of the performances by the finalists. Blake’s poem just gave him an extra something, to set him apart from the rest of the pack. I have been obsessed with this show, since a co-worker at Dish recommended it to me. All of the contestants had such different and unique stories; I was instantly hooked. I was worried I was going to miss the finale, because of a delay on my train ride home. But, with my Dish Remote Access App, I was able to stream shows recorded on my DVR and live TV right to my phone. So, I didn’t miss a moment of the tense finale. I can’t wait to see how, and when they incorporate Blake into the Glee story; he’ll make a great addition to New Directions.
