'The Glee Project' Announces Season 2 Winner
"The Glee Project" has completed its second season, and a winner has been crowned. It's just one, this time, too: unlike last season where four different finalists from the reality show earned appearances on "Glee," this season the honor belongs to only one winner.
That winner is Blake Jenner, the mop-haired young man who beat out fellow finalists Aylin Baramuglu and Ali Stroker for the top prize: a seven-episode arc on the upcoming season of "Glee."
Like with past finalists Samuel Larsen and Damian McGinty, Blake will most likely end up joining the show mid-season, as shooting has already begun for the first few episodes of "Glee" season four. Though there aren't any details yet about Blake's character, series creator Ryan Murphy noted that a part is already being written for Blake, and that he will be romantically involved with one of the other students of the fictional McKinley High.
Blake has been described as the next Finn Hudson (Cory Monteith), as he holds some similarities to the show's leading male: he plays the drums, he's touted as more of an actor than a singer, and he showed his soft side with a rendition of "I'll Be" for one of his final performances on the competition show.
Be sure to tune in for "Glee" season four to see where Blake Jenner lands on the show.
