The list of mentors set to appear on The Glee Project this season just keeps getting longer — and it’s getting even more star-studded!
Lea Michele’s (Rachel) episode has already aired, with Cory Monteith (Finn), Naya Rivera (Santana), and Samuel Larsen (Joe) soon on their way. At a TV Academy panel on June 7, Glee creator Ryan Murphy revealed even more big names who are guaranteed to guest-mentor in an episode before the end of the season.
Ryan tells The Hollywood Reporter that Chris Colfer (Kurt), Amber Riley (Mercedes), Darren Criss (Blaine)and Jane Lynch (Sue) will also join the ranks of this season’s mentors.
"The funny thing about the mentors for this season is that the Glee cast really wanted to do it," Murphy said. "The first season, they did not want to do it but then they all watched the show and they became fans of the show and for the most part they called me and said, 'I want to do it!'"
Viewers of last season will remember that Darren showed up not once, but three times over the course of the Season 1 competition. However, Season 2 marks the first appearance for the other three guests.
Cory and Naya are neck and neck in our last poll, but with the announcement of these latest judges, we’ve got to ask again: Which of the new mentors are you most excited to watch?
