'Glee Project' winners Samuel Larsen and Damian McGinty on 'Access Hollywood Live'The 'Glee Project' finale had a surprise ending when 'Glee' creator Ryan Murphy revealed not one but two winners -- Samuel Larsen and Damian McGinty.

The finale taped in April, which means Larsen and McGinty haven't been able to tell anyone about their win for months. "Oh, I told my mom and dad," said Larsen. "No, I mean, when they slap that kind of a contract in your face and tell you the consequences, you keep your mouth shut."
