A second season of “The Glee Project” is now underway, on Tuesdays at 10:00 PM ET/9:00 PM CT on Oxygen, with a new cast of what began as 14 hopefuls vying for a guest role on the hit series “Glee.” At the time of this post, an “American Idol”-esque casting special aired on June 2, 2012 followed by the first official episode on June 5, 2012 with the theme “Individuality.”  Their first homework assignment was to perform Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” for Robert Ulrich and guest mentor Lea Michele from FOX’s “Glee.”  Their first group number was “Here I Go Again” by Whitesnake.  Shanna Henderson proved to be a strong contender out of the gate by winning both the homework challenge and the group performance.  Episode 1’s bottom three were Tyler Ford, Aylin Bayramoglu, and Maxfield Camp.  Ultimately, Maxfield went home.

Episode 2’s focus is “Dance-ability” so we’ll see how this season’s cast will shake their tail feathers under the choreography of Zach Woodlee and Brook Lipton.

Who are your Season 2 Favorites?

I’d love you to comment with your season favorites so far.  As of episode 1, I’d say I have my eye on Abraham Lim (Twitter hashtag #teamABRAHAM), Mario Bonds (Twitter hashtag #teamMARIO), Ali Stroker (Twitter hashtag #teamAli), and Blake Jenner (Twitter hashtag #teamBLAKE).  I’m raising an eyebrow for Shanna Henderson (Twitter hashtag #teamSHANNA) and Aylin Bayramoglu (Twitter hashtag #teamAYLIN)- meaning there’s something about them, but I think there’s more to be revealed as the season develops.  Aylin belted hell out of ballad version of David Guetta‘s “Without You” for Ryan Murphy, but I’m not sure about this flirtiness to her personality is going to work well in her favor as the judges seem to be thinking.  We shall see…
