After 11 grueling weeks of competition on The Glee Project, it all came down to the final episode in which Aylin Bayramoglu, Ali Stroker and Blake Jenner had to perform their homework assignment – “You Can’t Stop the Beat” from Hairspray. Mentor Chris Colfer who plays Kurt Hummel on Glee was there to help them out, and all of this season’s eliminated contestants came back and sang Hot Chelle Rae’s “Tonight Tonight” as part of the main challenge.
 
The winner of season two of The Glee Project nabbed a seven episode arc on the musical comedy/drama series on Fox. So, who won? Ready for it… 19 year old Blake Jenner. The Miami, Florida teen performed “I’ll Be” by Edwin McCain as his ‘last chance performance song’ and wowed the judges including Ryan Murphy, on-air mentors Robert Ulrich, Zach Woodlee and Nikki Anders, Glee co-creator and writer, Ian Brennan, and some of Glee‘s core writing staff.
 
Jenner, who’s never taken a singing lesson, has always wanted to be an actor. His guest-starring arc on Glee will take place during the fourth season of the series.
