Want to be on GLEE?: All the details on the open call audition!

March 30, 2010

Your patience is finally being rewarded, gleeks! FOX has finally announced the details of the open call audition for the three new cast member roles for the second season of Glee. FOX is teaming up with MySpace for the audition call through a special Glee Audition MySpace page, and it starts TODAY! Here are all the details you need to know:

GLEE’s executive producers are holding a nationwide online casting search for fresh, young, talented performers to fill new roles that will be featured during the show’s second season. Beginning March 30, amateur and professional performers between the ages of 16 and 26 will have the opportunity to submit an audition video exclusively on MySpace at

Hopefuls will be able to upload their videos beginning today through April 26. Videos must feature an explanation about why the auditioner wants to be on GLEE as well as a demonstration of his/her stellar singing ability by performing one of 10 GLEE hits, including “True Colors,” “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” and “Lean on Me.” Performances must be either acapella or with single instrument accompaniment via MySpace Karaoke or by uploading their own pre-recorded videos. Audition videos must be limited to five minutes in length – a one-minute introduction and a four-minute song – and are limited to one submission per person. Fans will be able to share the videos across various networks, post comments and rate their favorites with gold stars. Visit for more information, song list and additional rules.

Here’s the list of 10 songs you can use for your audition:

  • “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going” – Dreamgirls
  • “Gold Digger” – Kanye West
  • “Rehab” – Amy Winehouse
  • “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” – The Rolling Stones
  • “Can’t Fight This Feeling” – Reo Speedwagon
  • “Don’t Rain on my Parade” – Barbra Streisand
  • “Hate on Me” – Jill Scott
  • “Keep Holding On” – Avril Lavigne
  • “Lean on Me” – Bill Withers
  • “True Colors” – Phil Collins

So there you have it, gleeks! Now tell me…will YOU be auditioning? Be sure to let me know if you do! Good luck to everyone who tries out!

Update: I’ve also written a post with some commentary on the open call audition process. Check it out here.

    i’m no actor or singer, but i’ve been browsing the submissions and this one is by FAR my favorite.
    not only is the girl is a ridiculous singer, but she seriously looks EXACTLY like lea michele. seriously guys, have a look-alike on the show could make season 2 HILARIOUS. plus she has a fantastic voice and stage presence. VOTE FOR HER.
