glee project lindsayCould it be? Have we found the next Lea Michele?

On the latest episode of 'The Glee Project' (Sun., 9PM on OXY), 'Glee' boss Ryan Murphy told contestant Lindsay that she could become the next sing-along superstar on his hit show -- if only she showed her vulnerable side a little more.

Hearing Murphy tell her exactly what he was looking for inspired Lindsay to drop her "perfect" veneer and to shed a few tears while revealing that she was adopted, and that she struggles to fit in with her family, which is full of jocks.

"I'm not perfect like they are, so I strive," she said.

Sounds 'Glee'-enough to us. What do you think? Was Murphy being a little too harsh on Lindsay, or were his words exactly what she needed to hear?

Cameron Mitchell leaves 'The Glee Project'Cameron Mitchell had been close to leaving 'The Glee Project' (Sundays, 9PM on Oxygen) before, and not of his own volition. But he battled his way back to become a fan favorite, only to walk away on Sunday's episode by his own choice, and over the objections of 'Glee' creator Ryan Murphy, who didn't want him to leave.

Onstage to sing for his place in the competition, Mitchell said he was done. "I feel like that, you know, maybe this isn't for me," he told the judges. "Well how 'bout you let us make that decision for you right now?" said Murphy. "'Cause I don't feel like I'm willing to give up on you right now."

Ryan Murphy Blames Media for 'Glee' Cast Drama, Puts Spin-Off on Hold

by Chris Harnick, posted Jul 29th 2011 11:10AM
Ryan Murphy is doing quite a bit of backpedaling following conflicting interviews given by himself and co-executive producer Brad Falchuk about the fate of a few graduating 'Glee' characters.

In an interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Murphy said the characters played by Chris Colfer, Lea Michele and Cory Monteith will be graduating from McKinley High School in 2012. While it's been no secret that some 'Glee' characters would graduate next year -- reports date back to December 2010 -- some of the actors claimed ignorance to the news. Colfer said he found out via Twitter, causing a media frenzy.

Glee Spin-Off News
'Glee' co-creator Brad Falchuk appeared at Comic-Con and tried to put out the fire by claiming the characters are graduating, but they're not necessarily leaving the series.

"It was never our plan or our intention to let them go. ... They are not done with the show after this season," Falchuk said.

'Glee' Co-Creator Brad Falchuk Says Chris Colfer, Lea Michele and Cory Monteith are Staying With the Show

by Catherine Lawson, posted Jul 25th 2011 7:30AM
'Glee' castIs there a little discord over in the 'Glee' camp? Last month Ryan Murphy said that several major 'Glee' cast members would be leaving the show at the end of Season 3. Their characters would graduate McKinley High and be replaced by new characters, just like in a real high school.

Makes sense, right? Well, yes and no. First, some of the actors concerned -- who are still under contract with the series -- expressed surprise at the news, with Chris Colfer saying that he'd found out via Twitter.

Then, last week Amber Riley said that the actors are all fine with the decision, and Lea Michele tweeted that "It's all part of the plan and it's all good."

Now, however, has Murphy's co-creator Brad Falchuk tossed a wrench into the works?

He told a Comic-Con audience that the characters are graduating, but they're not leaving the show: "It was never our plan or our intention to let them go. ... They are not done with the show after this season."

Oh, but he still had bad news for Sam fans: Chord Overstreet is done with the show.

Matheus Fernandes, 'The Glee Project'One of the standout personalities on 'The Glee Project' (Sun., 9PM ET on Oxygen) is Matheus Fernandes. The diminutive contender has admitted to being very fond of his abs, and so he must have decided to share them this week.

!!SPOILER ALERT!!

Fernandes continued his up-down run on the show. In the first week he won the homework challenge, earning a featured spot in the video for that week. The next week he was in danger of getting eliminated. Then, last week, he again won the homework challenge. So it was no surprise, that he continued the pattern and fell at risk this week.

Ryan Murphy Talks 'Glee' Season 3, and It Sounds Promising!

by Jean Bentley, posted Jun 22nd 2011 2:15PM
Ryan MurphyTurns out, Ryan Murphy really did hear all of your (our) complaints about 'Glee''s uneven and generally not-so-great second season.

First, after yapping to basically every journalist on the Internet last summer, he stopped revealing every single plot twist and guest star and song selection. As much as I encourage giving scoop, you've got to leave something a surprise when the episodes finally air.

Then he went and hired a full-on writing staff, ensuring (hopefully!) that the third season might be able to maintain some sense of continuity or develop its many characters in multi-episode arcs and recurring storylines!

Now, Murphy is publicly stating that season 3 will not be the guest-star bonanza we've come to know. The 2011-2012 season is pulling a Christina and going back to basics. "We're not going to have any guest stars," Murphy told TVLine. "And we're going to do fewer songs."

'Glee' Original Characters to Graduate McKinley High in 2012, New Ones Will be Added

'Glee' castRachel, Finn, Quinn and Puck fans: Brace yourselves. It will soon be time to say farewell to the original McKinley High kids as 'Glee' boss Ryan Murphy confirmed that the characters who were juniors last season will graduate in May 2012.

Speaking on Ryan Seacrest's radio show on Friday, Murphy said that the upcoming Season 3 will be senior year for the original cast.

"I don't think of it in terms of eliminating or replacing. Because I think the thing about this cast is people love them and they are incredibly talented. They've left sort of an indelible mark," he said.

"The thing that I wanted to do and the cast wanted to do, we didn't want to have a show where they were in high school for eight years. We really wanted it to be true to that experience. We thought it would be really cool if we were true to the timeline."

Ellis Has Her First Ever Kiss On-Camera on 'The Glee Project' (VIDEO)

Ellis Wylie, 'The Glee Project''The Glee Project' (Sun., 9PM ET on Oxygen) continued marching along toward finding a featured player for a stint on the next season of 'Glee.' And, just like the show they're trying to find a star for, this reality variation is filled with the same kind of teen angst and drama.

Lindsay must be inspired by Santana, as she's clearly going out of her way to be the b**** of the show. Her constant target has been Ellis, who was more than vulnerable this week when she found out she'd have to kiss on-camera during the music video challenge.

Ellis might have been able to play off the fact that it was her first ever kiss, but Lindsay was right there. "Ellis?" she shouted in front of everyone. "Best first kiss?"
