“The Glee Project” – Tuesday, June 5 at 10 PM ET/PT *SEASON PREMIERE*
In the season two premiere of “The Glee Project,” on Tuesday, June 5 at 10 PM ET/PT, the chosen 14 contenders are immediately introduced to the world of “The Glee Project” with the theme of “Individuality.” During the first “homework assignment,” each contender has the chance to show the judges who they are by showcasing their personalities. The winner of that assignment is awarded highly coveted one-on-one time with guest mentor Lea Michele (“Glee’s” Rachel Barry). Then, with the help of the mentors, casting director Robert Ulrich, choreographer Zach Woodlee and vocal producer Nikki Anders, the contenders prepare for the main challenge – performing White Snake’s “Here I Go Again.” Tension builds as the mentors determine the bottom three contenders and challenge them to a final performance in front of Ryan Murphy, who will in turn determine which contender does not get called back.
“The Glee Project” is produced by Ryan Murphy Television and Embassy Row with Ryan Murphy, Dante Di Loreto, Michael Davies and Shauna Minoprio serving as executive producers.
