The Oxygen Channel is breathing new life into the hit television show Glee with its latest project. The winner of the Glee Project competition earns a seven-episode arc in a storyline built around their new character. Thousands auditioned around the country including an open call in Chicago. Through homework assignments of performing in front of a mystery guest and making music videos before a last chance recital these hopefuls proved their talents for TV. The producer Ryan Murphy whittled down the group to the final four and had a record number of 1.2 viewers for the finale.
