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.

Glee Quotes

We met right here. I took this man's hand and we ran down that hallway. Those of you who know me know I'm not in the habit of taking the hands of people I've never met before, but I think that my soul knew something that my body and my mind didn't know yet. It knew that our hands were meant to hold each other, fearlessly and forever. Which is why it's never really felt like I've been getting to know you. It's always felt like I was remembering you from something. As if in every lifetime that you and I have ever lived we've chosen to come back and find each other and fall in love all over again, over and over, for all eternity. And I just feel so lucky that I found you so soon in this lifetime because all I want to do, all I've ever wanted to do, is spend my life loving you. So, Kurt Hummel, my amazing friend, my one true love, will you marry me?

[to Finn] You know, I don't really know what's going to happen between us, but I know that you used to be the guy that would make me feel like the most special girl in the whole world, and it doesn't feel that way anymore. Now it just feels sad and confusing. And the worst part is that it doesn't even feel that bad anymore.
