'The Glee Project' Takes 'Twisted' Turn


'The Glee Project' Takes 'Twisted' Turn

Eleven contenders are vying for a dream spot as a recurring cast member in the upcoming season of the FOX hit "Glee" in "The Glee Project," and this week they'll have to get a little "twisted" with the help of Broadway star Idina Menzel. Check out the exclusive photos!

Idina plays Shelby on "Glee" -- the rival glee club coach and recently revealed mother of Lea Michele's character -- and the Broadway star will mentor the contenders with a fitting theme of "Theatricality" on Sunday's show. But as they prepare to sing Twisted Sister's "We're Not Gonna Take It," tensions rise between two of the contenders. Can they make it work as they try to make it to the top?

Last week, "Glee" star and guest mentor Darren Criss (Blaine of the Dalton Academy Warblers), coached the group on the theme of "Individuality" and they performed Katy Perry's "Firework." Twenty-two-year-old "Glee" hopeful Bryce Ross-Johnson of Westlake Village, CA was the first contender to be eliminated.

"The Glee Project" airs Sunday nights at 9 p.m. EST on Oxygen.
