At an Academy of Television Arts & Sciences panel for "The Glee Project," the show's executive producer Ryan Murphy announced Jane Lynch (Sue), Chris Colfer (Kurt), Darren Criss (Blaine) and Amber Riley (Mercedes) would also appear as guest mentors for season two. In addition, he previewed that season two would produce just one winner, unlike last year, which saw four contestants land multiple episode arcs on the FOX musical.

Per The Hollywood Reporter, those on tap to appear in the Oxygen reality show will include Lea Michele (Rachel), Cory Monteith (Finn), Naya Rivera (Santana) and last season's co-winner Samuel Larsen (Joe).
