Sneak Peek - 'Glee Project' Returns!
Not that we've seen Ryan Murphy make good -- and then some (in Alex's case) -- on his promise to spotlight Lindsay, Alex, Damian and Samuel on Glee, the stakes are even higher for season two of Oxygen's The Glee Project.
And starting tonight, 14 new hopefuls hit the choir room as Lea Michele plays mentor for the opening Individuality challenge, which sees the kids performing Whitesnake's Here I Go Again.
To further understand what it takes to make it from choir room to main stage, TheInsider.com caught up with the most memorable contestants from season one and asked them to finish this sentence: "I want to tell the season two contestants..."
Hanna: I want to tell the season two contestants ... to live in the moment. You have to enjoy every second of this journey. Be appreciative of where you are. Don't expect anything. Just go with it and you might just have the most amazing time of your life!
Alex: I want to tell the season two contestants ... to be yourself. If you're going to be fake on TV, they'll read you for being fake. And no one will buy it.
Marissa: I want to tell the season two contestants ... that every little thing behind the scenes counts. Keep your game face on the entire time. There is no "off camera." It's all part of the judging.
Cameron: I want to tell the season two contestants ... you're auditioning for Ryan Murphy every day when you're on that set. Never forget that. It's your time to shine.
Lindsay: I want to tell the season two contestants ... I thought that I understood what a group effort meant; that you set yourself aside. But on the finale, on the rooftop, it hit me: "This is our time. Not Hannah's time, not Mattheus' time, not my time. Our time." I think learning that there is no "I" in team and learning to really embrace your insecurities as well as letting the audience embrace them is so important.
Emily: I want to tell the season two contestants ... Good luck. They got this far, they don't need my advice.
The Glee Project season two premieres tonight at 10 p.m. on Oxygen!
