Fellow Glee Project winners Damian McGinty (Rory) and Samuel Larsen (Joe) both won seven episode-stints on the show, instead of two. What’s more, both guys appear to be set for even more episodes than that!
Like Lindsay Pearce (Harmony), Alex’s role on Glee looks to be only two episodes at this point. That said, there’s always a possibility he might come back next season, too.

Though they haven’t yet shared the screen together on Glee, Damian McGinty has still been tweeting plenty of support for his co-star and pal. Immediately after the episode’s airing, Damian wrote, “"@ANew92 absolutely smashed it. Incredible performance.”
Here they are: Glee’s Rory, Joe, Wade and Harmony... before they made it big. Just think of how much each of their lives have changed since this photo was taken last summer. Kind of incredible when you think about it!
Alex Newell (Wade) made his official Glee debut in April 17’s Season 3, Episode 16: “Saturday Night Glee-ver” with a truly unforgettable performance of The Bee Gee’s “Boogie Shoes.” But as anyone who watched Alex on last summer’s The Glee Project can tell you — that certainly wasn’t his first time performing in fabulous drag!
