Samuel Larsen and Damian McGinty Win The Glee Project, Will Appear on Season Three

If Glee is a show that gives a voice to those typically considered "losers" in high school, The Glee Project turned out to be a show in which there were no real losers. At least not when it came to last night's finale.

In a surprising twist, Ryan Murphy named both Samuel Larsen and Damian McGinty winners, while also handing out a pretty big consolation prize to Lindsay Pearce and Alex Newell: they'll appear on two season three episodes of Glee.

Samuel and Damian, meanwhile, are now booked for seven apiece. What roles will they take on? That's a surprise.

On the finale, all four contestants banded together for renditions of "Don't Stop Believing" and "Raise Your Glass." They then sang a choice of their choice for Murphy, the judges and a handful of Glee cast members.

In the end, Murphy announced the final decision and said it wasn’t based on “any of [the contestants'] individual talents, it’s about the needs of the show.” It should be interesting to see how these four serve those needs when Glee returns on September 20.

Relationships are a lot like flowers. If you find the right seed, put it in good soil, give it water and sunlight, bam. Perfect bud. And then comes winter and the flower dies. But if you tend that garden, spring will come along and that flower will bloom again.
