Is It Any Good?

Kids say (14 ):

If you love Glee, it kind of goes without saying that you'll love The Glee Project. Because not only does it have all of the base elements that have made Glee so successful -- including impressive talent, infectious songs, and quirky characters -- it also has weekly guest appearances from the actual Glee cast members you've come to know and love.

Cross-promotion like that is pretty genius, not to mention remarkably convenient, since Murphy and Ulrich can use runners-up from The Glee Project to cast fresh faces and exciting new voices on Glee for years to come.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
