If just couldn’t shake the feeling The Glee Project 2 contender Dani Shay looked slightly familiar, you’re not alone. (And no, we’re not talking about the fact that she sort of looks like Justin Bieber. Plus, for the record, she had that haircut first.)
Nope, there’s a perfectly logical reason why Dani looks so familiar. She already has a past on reality TV singing shows! The 23-year-old Florida girl made it to the Top 48 contestants on Season 6 of America’s Got Talent just last year — and she’s already developed quite the fan following.
Dani’s been writing songs and playing guitar since the age of 16, and she’s already written and independently released a total of four albums and two singles. If she is cast on Glee, Dani says she loves the idea of getting to play an androgynous female, especially since that’s a type of character no one’s ever seen on the show before.
