Who is the Glee Project Season 2 Winner?

After 11 weeks of a grueling battle among the top 14 contenders, the Glee Project Season 2 winner has finally been chosen. The winning contestant earns a spot in one of today's most sought after television show, Glee. The winner will appear in 7 episodes, particularly season 4, guaranteed. The winner also is also awarded a recording contract and the opportunity to go on tour.

Episode 11: Glee-ality

The season finale started with the usual homework/assignment portion through the song “You Can’t Stop the Beat” by Hairspray. It’s a surprise to see all original 14 casts back on the room. Chris Colfer (Kurt Hummel on Glee) is the episode’s guest judge/mentor. But since the Glee Project Season 2 winner can be any of the three, he chose all of them for the mentoring session. 

All 14 casts are also part of the music video shoot with the song “Tonight Tonight” by Hot Chelle Rae. The setting is a prom night where Aylin pretty much plays her own role in real life as a teen from a conservative family who sneaks out to attend the dance. Ali is completely the opposite by being a flirty and mean girl. Blake plays the humble prom king. It was fun seeing all previously eliminated contestants back on the show. Damian McGinty as Rory Flanagan also made an appearance in the video.

I was trying to read their thoughts based on their facial expressions but everyone seems to be genuinely having fun, enjoying the moment, and respecting the top three remaining finalists. After all, these are the contenders who could be the next Glee Project Season 2 winner. The finale is all about the three anyway as even interviews are purely focused on them with inserts from guests and other judges of course.

Speaking of guests, Glee’s writers who helped choose the final three contestants from last week’s episode are back along with some of the cast members of Glee, all 14 casts for Glee Project Season 2, and the regular judges and mentors. They were present to witness the last chance performance and to provide their own insights about the performances. The three finalists were allowed to pick their own song and we’re asked to think about what they will say as final remarks before judging. The Glee Project Season 2 winner will be chosen not only due to talent but also for what they can contribute to Glee. 

Ali

Ali was first with the song “Popular” from the musical Wicked. She was bubbly and perky. She didn’t succumb to the usual melodramatic songs that some disabled people resort to. She wasn’t there to ask for compassion but to confidently show that despite her disabilities, she can make it to Glee. But her choice of character to portray isn’t convincing enough. She thought about playing a flirty and manipulative role. I don’t think it fits her personality and current situation.

Aylin

Aylin took on “Rolling in the Deep” by Adele. Her voice is undeniably powerful. Her personality can be as inspirational as Ali’s. Breaking away from a stereotype of Moslems and coming from a conservative Turkish background, she can become a motivation for everyone else to come out of their own shells. Her beau, Charlie who was eliminated during the earlier episodes, obviously rooted for her and seemingly campaigned for her with that speech for Ryan Murphy right after the performances.

Blake

Blake won the writer’s hearts as well as some of the Glee cast members. He was indeed able to show a part of him they haven’t seen yet during his performance of “I’ll Be” by Edwin McCain. He wasn’t the best singer and his antics during his rendition of the song were even awkward. But the microphone flip was superb! Is that what he wanted to show? Ryan Murphy also asked. It wasn’t only that. We have seen the depth of his personality with that poem he wrote rhyming “I am the guy…” over and over again. I love the lines, “I am the whitest half Cuban…” Judge/mentors Nikki Anders and Robert Ulrich were in tears when he was reading the poem and so are other people who were in the room.

During the deliberation, Murphy admittedly said his mind was already made up  as to who the  winner is before he came to the show but the performances changed his mind. Most judges/mentors particularly Zach Woodlee and the writers especially Ian Brennan (who is also co-creator of Glee) agreed that one of the three final contestants is a star. That star is… Blake!

So the Glee Project Season 2 winner is Blake Jenner, 19, from Miami, Florida!
