    lindsay is so fake and annoying, alex is a good singer but is boring.
    the others two are ok, but i’m not interested on their arc plot.
    why bring new people if they can’t focus and write to the cast they alredy have, second season was a mess.

    Ryan had a most difficult job deciding which young talented person should get the prize. The Glee Project staff did the right thing in selecting Four winners. My favorites were chosen for sure! Congratulations to the winners. The luck of the Irish is with the Final Four.

    Best Wishes, Kevin – The Senior Aide

    I love how he can write four new people on the show & gets rid of Chord. WTF!? That’s just crap & I really think he should just focus on the main cast for their last season

    @Ismail: I think you meant ‘in the shadow of Chris Colfer and Darren Criss’… the little Dianna had, the Lucy story, sucked.
    I can’t stand RIB anymore, they had something great in their hands and just ruined it
