‘The Glee Project’ video: Watch Lea Michele shine as mentor

The show returns on June 5.

Do you want a few sneak peeks at the season premiere of “The Glee Project” airing Tuesday night? Then all you have to do is look below!

The preview shows that Lea is actually joining “Glee” co-creator Ryan Murphy as a guest for the group’s first performance — and while we don’t get an opportunity to see the contestants in action just yet, it is clear that the Emmy-nominated star does have some favorites from the group (including one woman who has looked up to her as a singer for quite some time).

To go along with this mentoring twist, Murphy also makes one thing rather clear to the 14 contestants trying out for the show — while Damian McGinty and Samuel Larsen each managed to score massive arcs on season 3 (and potentially longer) thanks to the show, he is only picking one person to win this time around — which is a nice move considering how many characters “Glee” already has to worry about. This means that the stakes are going to be even higher, and you have to be on your game for pretty much every performance since they are all taken into consideration when it comes to the grand prize.

As previously reported, some of the other mentors for this season include Cory Monteith, Naya Rivera, and Larsen from last season.
