It’s not a secret that some of us in the NYLON office are completely, totally, unreasonably obsessed with The Glee Project.
(For any reality TV newbies out there, it’s a show where the producers of Glee audition 14 teenagers, with one – or more, depending on the talent pool – winning roles on the hit TV show.)
Right now, we’re infatuated with Aylin, an incredible singer and feisty performer who’s asked Glee creator Ryan Murphy to play a Muslim character – something the show currently lacks. (Aylin was raised Muslim herself, and comes from a Turkish background.)
An informal office poll revealed Southern sweetheart Shanna was also a favorite – although according to Intern Andy, “none of them are talented enough to be on Glee, and I think it’s embarrassing.”
Clearly, Andy needs to audition himself. If you feel the same way – and think you can sing better than these kids! – follow TGP on Twitter for future updates on trying out for the show.
