This summer, another contestant will get the chance of a lifetime to appear on FOX's Glee
. The Oxygen reality series The Glee Project
is back for season 2, and once again Glee
co-creator Ryan Murphy will narrow down a field of 14 hopefuls until one wins a recurring role on the show.
Well, maybe one. In the first season, there were two winners (Damian McGinty and Samuel Larsen) while the two runners-up got two-episode guest appearances. So odds are good that we might see more than one of these 14 kids on season 4of Glee
See who's competing for a spot on Glee
in these introductory videos, including a girl in a wheelchair, a blind guy and an America's Got Talent

Clearly Ryan Murphy will have his work cut out for him, though I have to assume people with a clear hook will have a better shot at lasting long (wheelchair girl, blind guy, Muslim girl, etc).
