SCROLL TO THE BOTTOM FOR THE VIDEOS THAT PEOPLE HAVE LINKED IN THE COMMENTS SO FAR. I’LL TRY TO KEEP IT UP TO DATE DAILY.
UPDATE 4/27/2010 (via Glee fan page on Facebook): Due to popular demand, we will have a one-day “encore” of the GLEE audition process. Starting this WED, 4/28 at 12:00pm PT through THUR, 4/29 at 11:59am PT, you will be able to submit an audition video online if you haven’t done so already. Visit http://bit.ly/dtKbyW to submit!
It’s not surprising that FOX has already given “Glee” the thumbs up on a season 2. It has already garnered several awards such as the SAG Award for Best Comedy Series Ensemble, a Golden Globe for Best Musical or Comedy Series, and Dorian Awards for TV Musical Comedy of the Year and Jane Lynch (plays Sue Sylvester) also took home TV Performance of the Year: Musical or Comedy, and a People’s Choice Award for Favorite New TV Comedy. These are just awards given in the past couple of weeks. In addition, the Glee volume 1 and volume 2 soundtracks both went Gold.
The second season comes with a little twist. Fans will be able to vie for a spot on the show. According to the press release from FOX:
Building upon the show’s incredibly supportive community of GLEEks and with the hope of bringing fans even closer to the series, auditions will be open to amateur individuals as well as professionals between the ages of 16-26, and all hopefuls will be able to submit auditions online. Additional details to be announced soon, please check www.fox.com/glee for updates.
This unique casting search and process will be chronicled in a multi-part special that will air leading up to the premiere of the series’ second season in fall 2010 on FOX, and the new cast members will be revealed in the premiere episode…
…ALL the roles will be chosen from the video audition process, which is exciting and unprecedented. We want to be the first interactive musical comedy on television, and the search is ON.
According to the Glee official website, online auditions for 3 roles will begin in February 2010, but make sure to keep checking www.fox.com/glee/audition/ for the latest.
