And the winner of "The Glee Project" is...

So..Sunday night was the finale of "The Glee Project" and just…what. Let's just dive into this hot mess of a finale and hope for the best!

So they sang "Don't Stop Believin'" at the beginning of the show, bringing back the eliminated people to sway in the background and do a little singing. While it was fun, I'm not entirely sure why they did this because there wasn't a winner or anything but okay. Then the final video performance was to "Raise Your Glass" by Pink with the eliminated folks coming in for a few vocals and dancing. In my opinion, this was the best like group performance that they did the whole season so that was fun. Oh, and seeing Damian and Hannah reunited was maaaaaaagical. Love those two. Please get together.

For their last chance performances, they all got to choose what songs they were going to sing, perform in front of most of the guest mentors and the old contestants and here is how that went down:

Lindsay - "Gimme Gimme" from the musical Thoroughly Modern Millie - As we all know by now, not a big fan of Lindsay. Still wasn't a fan last night..but I will say that this was probably her best performance to date. I'm still not really sure who she is or anything because I feel like she's being fake a lot of the time. With that said, I will say congratulations on making it to the end.

Damian - "Beyond the Sea" - Bobby Darin - Marry me, Damien. This was an outstanding performance by him. He was so cute just hip hopping around all over the stage singing his little heart out. I think this was his best performance as well and you can see how much he has grown throughout the season of this show. He has definitely grown the most and I was rooting for him by this point! Yay for making it to the end!

Samuel - Jolene - Dolly Parton - Sex. Riot. I pretty much died when Sam sang this. When he picked it, I just had this feeling that it was going to be delicious and I was right. This was an amazing last chance performance because he sang it in his own way and made it something way different than when ol Dolly sang it. Jolene is a hard song to tackle and Samuel pretty much owned it.

Alex - "I Am Changing" from the musical Dreamgirls - Alex sang in drag…again. Nothing wrong with it but I feel it's a bit forced and is just like for Ryan and not fully for himself. Either way - he sang the schniz out of this song. Alex is another one of my least favorites but I will never deny that kid's voice. While he probably has the best voice on the show, I still don't think he's fully right for Glee when it comes to the singing, dancing, personality and acting..there are others I'd rather see.

So this brings me to the decision point. Ryan told everyone why he liked them and how much they have grown and what not and then started eliminating them. Sorry Alex..you are not the winner of the Glee Project. Sorry Lindsay you are not the winner of the Glee Project. When it was down to Samuel and Damian, Ryan announced that Samuel was the winner of the Glee Project! *cue applause*

I was very happy when Samuel was announced as the winner but also sad because Damian was just too perfect during the finale. Oh but WAIT…after Damian said how he was sad he didn't get it but Samuel deserved it, Ryan said that he had also won the Glee Project! *more applause*
BUT WAIT AGAIN! After that, Oprah Winfrey Ryan Murphy decided to also give them roles for 2 episodes! *mad face*

I was okay with the two winners because I love Damian so much but what is this 2 episode arc nonsense? I just..can't even. I feel like it's going to lead to some lame characters to just have two episodes…unless it's like a celebrity guest star. In the end, I kind of feel like "The Glee Project" was a waste of time since we kind of just decided to hire everyone. But I do appreciate Ryan Murphy wanting to give everyone a chance apparently. Especially because he usually scare the schniz out of me. So it's good to see that he can be nice. I have faith in Samuel and Damian and I'm glad they won the two bigger roles for sure. I'm excited/nervous/very scared/but still excited about season 3…just have to trust those writers! :)

Stay strong Gleeks…the premiere is quickly approaching!
