Blake Jenner has earned a role on Glee Season 4.
Following an opening season in which Ryan Murphy actually awarded all three finalists with at least some appearance on his Fox hit, the creator said prior to Season 2 that only the actual winner would appear on Glee in 2012-2013.
So, how did Jenner pull it out and earn himself a seven-episode stint?
He took on "I'll Be" by Edwin McCain for his final performance, tossing the microphone in a bit of fun showboating - and also writing a poem! That likely put him over the winning edge in the judges' eyes.
The panelists conferred and while all admired Aylin for her personal story, they gushed over Blake's acting skills and Ali's personality.
In the end, the acting won out. But should have? Did Blake Jenner deserve to win season two The Glee Project?
