Nellie wowed casting director Robert Ulrich with her unique singing voice, and she impressed guest mentor Cory Monteith (Finn) so much during her homework performance in Season 2, Episode 3: “Vulnerability,” that he chose her as that week’s winner.

The Glee Project contender has been performing for eight years. She’s a member of a local swing band, where she just so happens to be the the youngest in the group by 20 years. Nellie plays both piano and guitar, and she loves writing her own songs. Nellie has a passion for photography, and she says her favorite performance space is in a cozy little coffee shop.
