The Glee Project is an American reality television series from Oxygen. It served as an audition for the FOX musical comedy series Glee, and the prize for the winner was a minimum seven-episode arc in the following season of the show. The show's first season premiered in the US on June 12, 2011, and concluded on August 21, 2011. In Canada, the series began airing on Slice on June 26, 2011, and in the UK, the series began airing on Sky1 on July 14, 2011. A second season aired in the US from June 5 to August 14, 2012. In July 2013, it was announced that The Glee Project would not return for a third season.[1]

Glee executive producers Ryan Murphy and Dante Di Loreto executive produced for The Glee Project. Glee‍‍ '​‍s casting director, Robert Ulrich, was casting director for the project, while Glee‍‍ '​‍s on-screen non-speaking accompanist, Brad Ellis, helping Ulrich coach 80 potential candidates as seen in the music segment of "The Top 12" special that led into the pilot episode of season 1.[2][3]

Contest process

Each episode of The Glee Project is given an overall theme and covers events that have taken place in about the time span of a week. The following is how the events are broadcast.

Homework assignment

Contestants are given a "homework assignment" that entails learning and practicing segments of a chosen song. At the beginning of each episode, contestants perform their respective parts of the song in front of a mystery guest judge from the Glee cast. The contestant that completes the homework best is given a one-on-one session with the guest star and a principal part in the music video.

Music video (group performance)

Contestants then create a music video "inspired by the performances on Glee". In preparation for the music video, contestants record parts of a song in a professional studio with vocal producer Nikki Anders (née Hassman). They also learn choreography from Zach Woodlee and/or Brooke Lipton, his assistant. The entire process is overseen by Glee‍‍ '​‍s casting director Robert Ulrich.

Callbacks

During callbacks, the bottom three contestants are revealed. They are critiqued by Robert Ulrich and Zach Woodlee, and also in the second season by Nikki Anders, about their performances. (Anders substituted for Woodlee in Ep. 8 of the first season.) They are then each assigned a different song that they will perform in hopes of being "saved".

Last chance performance

The bottom three of the week perform their assigned songs in front of Ryan Murphy himself. With input from Woodlee, Ulrich, and Anders (in the second season) a decision is made and one of the bottom three is eliminated.

Final callbacks

Unlike most reality competition shows, contestants are not directly informed of their elimination, nor must they wait for extended tension-filled pauses to hear the results one by one. Rather, the bottom three are notified when "the list is up" and discover their fate as they find their name on the list. Afterwards, the eliminated contestant sings lead vocals in "Keep Holding On" by Avril Lavigne with the remaining contestants singing the background vocals.

Season one (2011)

Although originally planned to begin broadcasting in late May 2011, The Glee Project premiered on June 12, 2011, and aired a two-hour extended premiere where the first hour showed the audition process and selection of the twelve contenders, and the second hour was the first episode of the series. The Canadian and UK premieres were also in the same two-hour extended format: in Canada, the series began airing on Slice on June 26, 2011, and in the UK, the series began airing on Sky One on July 14, 2011.

Damian McGinty and Samuel Larsen were both proclaimed the winners of the first season, each winning a seven-episode arc. Runners-up Lindsay Pearce and Alex Newell were given prizes of a two-episode arc on Glee, and Cameron Mitchell, who quit the competition in episode 7, won the "fan favorite" competition and the associated $10,000 prize.[4] Pearce's two-episode arc, as a Rachel Berry-esque girl named Harmony, consisted of the season premiere episode "The Purple Piano Project" and the eighth episode "Hold On to Sixteen", while McGinty began his arc as Rory Flanagan, an Irish exchange student, in the fourth episode "Pot o' Gold"; McGinty was retained on the show beyond his seven-episode prize. Larsen debuted on Glee in the thirteenth episode, "Heart", as a transfer student named Joe Hart,[5] also appearing beyond his original seven-episode stint. Newell's first appearance was in the April 17, 2012 episode "Saturday Night Glee-ver". He played Wade Adams, a transgender member of the rival Vocal Adrenaline show choir, and appeared briefly in "Props", returning a few more times before transferring to McKinley High for the series' fourth season and becoming a series regular for its fifth season.

McGinty, Larsen, Pearce and Newell were chosen to sing on the 2011 Glee Christmas album, Glee: The Music, The Christmas Album Volume 2.[6]
