Who Won THE GLEE PROJECT? - Give Me My Remote : Give Me My Remote


August 21, 2011 by  

Here it is. The final of THE GLEE PROJECT. Ryan Murphy just announced which of the final four has landed a 7-episode arc on next season of GLEE.

And the winner of THE GLEE PROJECT is…

Samuel Larson!!

….and Damian McGinty!

Yes, both Samuel AND Damian have landed the coveted spot and BOTH will get their arcs on GLEE next season.

As for runners up Lindsay and Alex, they too will appear on GLEE or two episode.  We already know that Lindsay has been cast in a ‘bad girl role’ (more on that later).

And no big surprise here, but Camron Mitchell walked away with the Fan Favorite award.

Did the right person (um, people) win THE GLEE PROJECT? Can you see them fitting in with the cast of GLEE? What kind of role do you hope they play? Are you counting down the days until September 20 to see how it all comes to fruition on the show?

Stay tuned right here for Haylee’s full recap of the episode, which is coming soon, but for now, discuss the winner in the comments!

    Gha, that had me so nervous as I really wanted Damien to win (and didn’t like Samual at all)! I figured the losers would also appear (but didnt expect to get announced on this show). I suspect Cameron will also be offered a role.

    I’m very excited bc Sam and Damian have been my top 2 all along (well, with Cameron too). I was fine with either, but thrilled with both!

    My heart sank when they announced Sam as the winner and SOARED when they told us Damian hold also won! Can’t believe we are going to be able to see that little Irish boy in the McKinely High choir room. Please have him sitting next to Chris Colfer in every episode because the adorableness will be out of control. (Ok not too close to Kurt…leave plenty of room for Blaine. HA!)

    I’m TEAM Damian, so glad to hear he won! I liked Sam, but I think Damian is so much more ‘Glee show’!

    When they said Sam won, I shook my head. I wanted it to be Damian. Then boom Damian wins as well. I got a huge grin on my face. I was really disappointed with Glee last season, to the point of probably not watching this season. Now I will for sure be watching Damian’s 7 episode arc.

    i love damian! he has been my favorite all along 😀 i really wished hannah hadnt been voted off, but i guess that cant be helped. im pretty satisfied with the winner(s)…and im SURE cameron will end up on the show at some point, as well.

    I think it’s ok that Damian won, but it was totally predictable unlike Murphy stated that the winner was “not who you would expect”.

    As for Samuel, I am actually very disappointed. If it was up to my decision, Sam would go home right after Bryce. Samuel’s acting skills are limited, his voice is very ordinary. As for his charachter, it’s obvious that Samuel Larsen is a prostitute when it comes to policies. Sam has no personality, no individuality, no contradictions inside of him that would make him look like real person at all. Samuel is a shell.
    Oh, wait a minute, he is more of a black hote. He would steal anything from anyone, like “Skidoosh” from Hannah, and the idea of christianity from Cameron. Gosh Samuel is such a prostitute.
    And is Ryan really so stupid to buy Sam’s crap about being a model christian boy?
    Mr.Murphy, where have you seen a christian boy with two nose rings and dreadloaks? If you people don’t know how christians look, watch movies like “A Walk to Remember” to learn about christianity.

    If i see Murphy including Samuel Larsen as a christian kid in season 3, i swear i will never watch “Glee” again.

    I am also disappointed that at the end we found out that there are several winners. I think, if it was to pick several contenders to win, they sould not have let Hannah and Cameron go. Because the company of Lindsay, Alex, Damian, Cameron and MC Hannah (excluding that shell of Samuel) was the perfect, they were really great and fun together to watch, I think they were like the second “New direnctions”. They made The Glee Project worth watching.

    And if Ryan isn’t stupid, he would beg on his knees for Cameron to have a role in Glee.

    I just want to applaud Damien, not for winning, but for the humble and generous way he congratulated Samuel when he thought he had lost. It just cemented in my mind all the more why he was my favorite and the one i rooted for.

    So glad his momentary loss turned into a win, and i will definitely be watching his episodes and hoping for a continued contract after he rocks it!!

    CLAP! CLAP! SAMUEL WOOOOOOOOON! I love him so much…let’s see Damian is good he had this very demeanor act which somehow predictable if ever he’s gonna play a tough guy he’ll have 0 points I’d watch him trying to be a rockstar and it looks trying hard (no offense please) but I still like him…BUT SAMUEL HAD THIS BAD AND TOUGH GUY LOOK SOOOOOOO COOOL…not only that he tried to hide his emotions ooooh but when i saw him cry that’s really somehow realistic…i really hate crybabies but him doing it made my heart sunk he’s a bit defensive but too shy…ha…I love him…oh but i don’t like the peircings…

    Samuel and Damian’s opposite attitude is a good combination. They look good. 😀

    Ryan murphy has been toying with us for ten weeks. I not upset about everybody winning but feel like I should be. Maybe because we are conditioned to expect only one winner from reality shows. When he said that Alex and Lindsey get 2 episodes I wanted to ask if Hannah could come too.

  12. tia on August 23rd, 2011 5:03 pm

    I. Was team ALEX upset he didn’t win could of been a star or become a example!!!!!!!

  13. Eza on August 24th, 2011 4:41 am

    Sweet! I thought Sam was so cool i’m glad he’s going to be on the show – adding something really unique to the show – and Damien, he’s a sweetie – i love his accent – that’s brilliant there’s two winners!

    Samuel Larson would be perfect on the Glee cast.
    Walking the halls of the school he could be written as a modern day Fonz.
    Not fitting in with any particular group but liked and loved by everyone, even Sue Sylvester. Written with an undefinable air of confidence and a kind heart.
    And HIS particular signature in the show could be he NEVER gets Slushied…..because even the school bullies think he is ‘Cool’…..Heeeeeey!!
    Well done Samuel. Look forward to seeing you on the show.

    Congats on the win. Good show.

  16. Tess Ketcham on August 25th, 2011 8:01 pm

    WTF! Alex is the best OMG!!!! ALEX!!!

  17. liam toland on August 31st, 2011 7:35 pm

    so happy damien won my granny used to baby sit him 😮 and now hes a star so happy go damien i new you could do it

  18. anonymous on September 5th, 2011 7:42 pm

    damian and sam both suck. alex and lindsay both have the best voices, and it’s pretty clear that alex and lindsay didn’t win because suck ups like all of you wanted either sam or damian to win because “they’re hot”. pfft. it’s clearly obvious that ryan chose sam and damian as the winners because if he didn’t people like all of you would be “disappointed” in the result and you all most likely would have ended up NOT watching glee. reality tv shows need to suck up to the public’s opinions otherwise they’ll lose viewers. oh, and btw, you don’t choose contenders based on their looks (i.e. damian), you choose them for the talent they’d bring to the show. and ryan murphy said exactly that alex fitted the whole glee scene, but he went ahead and chose damian and sam because they were liked more. alex is the best singer on the glee project, and lindsay is the best actress. it was even said by erik, the music video director, that lindsay is the best actress and all the judges even admitted that alex is the best singer of the show.
    FYI idiots, why don’t you think of why ryan chose damian and sam instead of going “omg omg omg they’ve won, they’re sooo hot, i love damian and his irish accent!”. they didn’t choose the winners based on talent. they chose the winners because idiots like all of you wanted them to be chosen.
