‘The Glee Project’ season 2: New video of contestants released!

The show returns on June 5.

With “Glee” over for the season, there is still something coming up that is certainly worth looking forward to — season 2 of “The Glee Project.” With us now just one week before the return of the show with all-new episodes, isn’t it time to find out a bit more about some of these singers?

In the video below (which was first posted over at TV Guide), you can see the contestants sizing up the competition — in particular Ali, who is quickly learning that she is not the only person on this show with an inspirational story. She is paralyzed from the waist down, but there is also a blind contestant (in Mario) and a transgender contestant (in Tyler). If nothing else, the “Project” is giving us an opportunity to see a wide range of contestants that we don’t often get an opportunity to see on TV.

So far, promos for the show have highlighted that only one person will be guaranteed a chance to appear on “Glee” proper during season 4 — though Ryan Murphy did find a quartet of people in the first season (Damian McGinty, Samuel Larsen, Alex Newell, and Lindsay Pearce) who all got an opportunity to appear in at least two episodes.

Are you excited for this new season?
