Many of the characters are Glee may be recent high school graduates, but in reality (most of) the guys and gals that portray them left high school behind a long time ago. During last Tuesday’s episode of the Fox dramedy — “New New York” — we decided to give Viggle LIVE users a little quiz.

The query of the night? Which Glee star is older: Lea Michele or Amber Riley? Before we give you the answer, let’s see how everyone voted. 56 percent of responders said Amber (Mercedes Jones) is older, while 39 percent said Lea was on Earth first. A small portion of those who responded — 5 percent, to be exact — answered that Amber and Lea are the exact same age. Interesting!

We’re happy to report that those of you who picked Amber as the oldest of the two delightful divas are clearly in the know. Ms. Riley was born on February 15, 1986, making her 28 years old now. Lea, on the other hand, is still 27. The “Louder” singer was born on August 29, 1986, meaning she’ll have to wait until the end of this summer to blow out 28 candles atop some surely delicious vegan cake.

Did you already know that Amber was several months older than her Glee co-star Lea, or were we able to stump you this time? Tell us how you fared in the comments below!
