OXYGEN'S "THE GLEE PROJECT" ELIMINATES TWO CONTENDERS - LILY MAE HARRINGTON OF CAPE COD, MASSACHUSETTS AND MICHAEL WEISMAN OF CHICAGO, ILLINOIS

Season One Winner Damian McGinty Hosts "The Glee Project Live Reunion" Directly After At 11pm ET As Cast Members Answer Viewers' Questions On Oxygen.com

NEW YORK - August 8, 2012 - Emotions ran high as the final five contenders of Oxygen's "The Glee Project" vied for a spot in the highly anticipated season two finale. This week the determined hopefuls were joined by "Glee" star Dianna Agron (Quinn Fabray) for the newly established "Actability" week. Performing "Addicted to Love" by Robert Palmer for the homework assignment, each singer was challenged to emote a designated action that Dianna gave them only minutes before singing. This tested the contenders' ability to readily adapt and also act out specific emotions on the spot.

Dianna revealed that the contenders would be performing "Perfect" by P!nk for the music video shoot, where they would film scenes for a fictional movie trailer. With the stakes high and the bar raised, each contender stepped into their character to prove themselves ready for "The Glee Project" finale. Then the judges revealed that all five contenders would have to sing last chance performances for not only Ryan Murphy and the on-air mentors, but also the entire writing team from "Glee."

Performing under intense circumstances, Lily Mae sang "Son Of A Preacher Man" made famous by Dusty Springfield, Michael sang "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" by Cyndi Lauper, Blake took on "I'm Still Standing" by Elton John, Ali performed "Here's to Us" by Halestorm and Aylin sang "Fighter" by Christina Aguilera. With the stakes so high, the group of writers alongside Ryan Murphy chose to eliminate two contenders - Lily Mae Harrington (18) of Cape Cod, Massachusetts and Michael Weisman (18) of Chicago, Illinois.

Lily Mae comes from a strong musical background with over six years of musical theater experience. She has been involved in the music world her entire life and has performed for over 2,500 people at the Symphony Hall in Boston. She is currently enrolled as a student at the Westminster Choir College. Lily Mae originally auditioned for "The Glee Project" online and at the New York City open casting call.

With over eight years of performance experience, Michael is also highly involved in the music scene. He performed at the House of Blues in Chicago, traveled half way around the world to perform in Tokyo and was a Paul Green School of Rock Chicago All Star. Michael was discovered through industry channels to audition for "The Glee Project."

In "The Glee Project" season two finale on Tuesday, August 14th at 10pm ET/PT, the final three contenders - Aylin, Blake and Ali - vie for a seven episode arc on "Glee." Joining the finalists is "Glee" series regular Chris Colfer (Kurt Hummel) who will mentor the contenders through "Glee-ality" week. The competitors will bring everything they have to the stage for their final performances, including their last homework assignment which is "You Can't Stop The Beat" from Hairspray.

The star-studded night continues online directly after at 11pm ET as season one winner, Damian McGinty, hosts "The Glee Project Live Reunion." The final five contenders will be with Damian live in New York while additional cast members from season two will join via live video on the Watchitoo platform to participate and answer fan questions. Also making a special appearance will be the cast from "All the Right Moves," joining the Live Reunion to chat with fans on Oxygen.com.

Fans can tweet their questions to @TheGleeProject or submit live video questions the night of the event at Oxygen.com.

A print conference call with Lily Mae Harrington and Michael Weisman will take place today, August 8 at 1pm PT/4pm ET. For call information, please contact Voncella McIntosh at Voncella.McIntosh@nbcuni.com or Morgan Di Stefano at Morgan.DiStefano@nbcuni.com

"The Glee Project" is produced by Ryan Murphy Television and Embassy Row with Ryan Murphy, Dante Di Loreto, Michael Davies and Shauna Minoprio serving as executive producers.
