'The Glee Project' Season 2 Preview Guide: Diverse Backgrounds, One Goal
'The Glee Project' Season 2 Preview Guide: Diverse Backgrounds, One Goal
Last season on The Glee Project, an all-embracing bunch of kids from across America had come to embark on an unusually interesting audition process for Glee led by series co-creator Ryan Murphy and casting director Robert Ulrich. Unlike other shows where contestants would ruthlessly plot their ways to win the big cash prizes, The Glee Project featured teenagers who were considered underdogs competing to get a once-in-a-lifetime chance of appearing on Glee's third season. In a surprising finale, Damian McGinty and Samuel Larsen were both proclaimed the winners, each winning a seven-episode arc.

This summer, Oxygen's hit series will be back with The Glee Project season 2 where another contestant whose dream of appearing on Glee will come true by the end of the competition. Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy will once again lead the judging panel as it narrows down a group of 14 hopefuls until one (or maybe two just like in season 1) gets to be declared the winner.

Lets meet the contestants:

It looks like Ryan Murphy already has his work cut out for him with this very interesting mix of hopefuls. Based from all these personality sketches and interview videos, who do you think will win this season?
