Episode guide

Individuality is the first episode on the first season of Project: Glee, in which fourteen young hopefuls compete for a role on Glee. This is a fan-fic competition based off the hit show, The Glee Project.


Narrator: So, Ryan needs more talent for Glee, so he decided to create Project: Glee, a reality show in which fourteen contenders compete for a role on Glee: United Touch. After various auditions, Ryan chose fourteen contenders to face off on the show. Every week will have its own theme and the contenders will have to prepare a song for a homework assignment to be performed in front of a guest judge from Glee. The guest judge will select a winner. Then, in preparation for a big group number based on Glee’s performances, the contenders will practice choreography with Zach Woodlee and record vocals with Nikki Anders. At the end of the week, Zach, Nikki, and Robert will choose the bottom three to perform in front of Ryan Murphy and he will decide who goes home and who stays in the competition. That’s all you need to know so far on Project: Glee!

Everyone enters the house and begin to hang out with each other

Confession cam-Joy: Oh my gosh! I can’t believe I’m here! I’m so excited!

Confession cam-Emily: Yay! I’m on Project: Glee!

Confession cam-Ryan: I’m so excited to be here!

Gray takes off his shirt, there is silence

Confession cam-Gray: Yeah, I like being shirtless.

Confession cam- Taylen: Oh my god! Gray is SO hot!

Confession cam- Lyla: I’m surrounded by hot people. Taylen and Gray! I think I’m gonna melt!

Confession cam- Gray: Taylen is freaking hot!

Confession cam- Andi: So we got to know each other, we are very diverse, there are two gay guys, Brandon and Ryan, two bis, and there are some sweet girls, and some bitches.

Robert enters the room, the contenders sit on the sofas

Robert: I’m so glad to see you all here. You guys excited?

Everyone: Yeah!

Robert: So the first week’s theme is Individuality.

Brandon: Yes!

Confession cam-Brandon: I think I know myself, and I can really stand out in a group through my voice.

Confession cam-Jacob: Individuality. I’ve never thought about who I am. It’s hard for me to stand out in a group, my voice is deep and my choreography sucks.

Robert: Your homework assignment is Don’t Stop Believin´ by Journey.

Confession cam- Ryan: Don’t Stop Believin’, I love that song, I think I can really stand out singing it.

Robert: Here you have the lyrics, divided into fourteen parts. You must chose your lines and prepare your own choreography. Tomorrow you’ll perform this song for me and a very special guest mentor from Glee. Good Luck!

Andi: So, I want line 10.

Taylen: I want that line.

Andi: I said it first.

Taylen: Who do you think you are? I want that line!

Confession cam-Andi: Taylen is very disrespectful. It’s only week one and she is already making enemies.

Alexandria: Taylen, you can have line 3.

Taylen, frowning: Okay…

-The group is preparing choreography-

Emma: Okay, so Tyler starts singing, and we all do the backups behind him, moving ourselves to the beat.

Confession cam- Emma: I like being the leader. I like having control.

Emma: Connor, move yourself! Drew sing!

Confession cam- Drew: So, Emma’s taken the lead, which us good, but she’s kinda... annoying.

Emma: Drew, sing!

-Homework assignment, choir room-

Robert: Are you ready? Your guest mentor was the first one cast on Glee. She certainly knows how to stand out in a group, please welcome...

Lea Michele walks in

Robert: Lea Michele!

Confession cam-Brandon: Lea Michele! I love Rachel Berry, I’m just like her!

Lea Michele: Hi guys! Individuality is about knowing who you are, not letting anything get in your way, and standing out!

Robert: So, you’ve been working on Don’t Stop Believin´.

Lea: I love that song! It’s the Glee anthem. So, let’s see what you’ve got.

Lights fade in; contenders stand up all together in front of the chairs

Lea Michele and Robert clap

Lea: That was amazing guys! It was great. Tyler, your voice was amazing, but I felt you weren’t as connected to the song. Connor, you weren’t connected either, you needed more energy; you were a little bit shy. Brandon, you were great, you owned it and you sounded incredible, I could really feel you know who you are and you really stood out, you reminded me of Rachel!. Emily, you were incredible too, I just couldn’t stop staring at you, your voice was amazing. Ryan, you really owned the song, you stepped out and stood out.

Robert: So Lea, who do you pick as the homework winner?

Lea: In the end I pick… Brandon!

Brandon smiles and covers his face

Confession cam-Brandon: Wow! So Lea Michele thinks I am great? I can’t believe it!

Robert: So Brandon that means you’ll have a one on one session with Lea and a stand out moment in our big group number which is....

Lea: I Love Rock n’ Roll by Joan Jett!

-Contenders shout and cheer-

Confession cam- Alexandria: I love that song! I think I can really stand out with it!

Confession cam-Jacob: I Love Rock n Roll!? That will be a hard song for me!

Robert: In the video, you will be at in a high school math class. You get bored and in Brandon’s imagination you go nuts and break things and cause chaos, at the end you’ll all be singing the song on a stage.

Drew: Cool.

Lyla: Awesome!

-Choreography with Zach-

Zach: Hi everyone! I’m Zach, she’s Brooke. I am the choreographer for Glee and I’ll also be choreographing your music videos. Alright the choreography at the start will be with two rows of you people, doing 1,2,3,4,1,2,3. Ok, I´m anxious to see what you got. 1,2,3,4. No, Joy, 4 isn’t like that, have more confidence in yourself.

Confession cam-Joy: I must admit I’m not the best dancer (laughs)

Zach: Again. 1,2,3,4. No Joy, not again, have more confidence.

Nikki: Strong’s louder.

Jacob: The beat was goin strong

Nikki: Okay.

Confession cam-Nikki: Jacob has a great voice, but he needs to have more confidence.

Confession cam- Brandon: I hope my one on one session with Lea helps me in the recording studio.

-One on One session-

Lea: Let’s see how you do the chorus.

Brandon: I love rock n' roll! So put another dime in the jukebox, baby. I love rock n' roll! So come and take your time and dance with me ow!

Erik: Hello everybody! I’m Erik White and I’ve worked with everybody from Lil Wayne to Beyonce. And now I have the opportunity to work with you!

Confession cam-Lyla It is incredible to work with Erik, I mean, he’s worked with everybody!

Erik: Alright, let’s start! Drew, you grab your desk and throw it to hell!

Drew grabs his desk, but before throwing it…

Zach: Keep lip-synching! And be more ferocious.

Robert (to Zach and Nikki): Drew doesn’t seems ferocious at all.

Erik: Next Emma pulls her desk.

Emma pulls her desk

Erik: More ferocious Emma. Again.

-Next at the stage, everybody is dancing the choreography

Robert: It seems like Tyler is somewhere else.

Erik: Tyler, concentrate here. Jacob, put more energy in it.

Robert- Confession cam: It will be difficult to choose who will be performing for Ryan tonight, so we will have to look at the video to see who was the weakest.

-I Love Rock n’ Roll – Music Video-

Robert: You all had struggles during the week. Connor, Lea said you were disconnected and shy, and you remained that way all week.

Connor nods

Robert: Drew, you weren’t standing out in the group number, you just needed a little bit more. Emma, you weren’t standing out in the video either.

Nikki: Jacob, you needed more energy at the studio, and the same at the video shoot. It seemed you weren´t trying.

Zach: Joy, you struggled a lot with the choreography and you needed a little bit more of the energy you have, you didn’t seem confident.

Robert: Tyler, Lea said you weren’t connected with the song, and you weren´t connected during the video shoot, you also needed more confidence. That being said, Emma, Joy and Drew…you are called back for next week.

They all smile, Joy falls to the ground.

Confession cam-Tyler: I really want to stay in the competition, I’ll show Ryan I am talented.


Zach, Nikki, Robert and Ryan enter the auditorium and sit.

Robert: So this week’s theme was individuality. These three contenders didn’t give as much as they could and didn’t stand out. First is Connor.

Ryan: Why is he here?

Robert: Connor was disconnected the whole week. He is shy and didn’t show himself.

Ryan: Bring him out.

-Connor walks onto the stage-

Connor: Hi, I´m Connor Matthews and I’ll be singing Haven’t Met You Yet.

I'm not surprised

Not everything lasts

I've broken my heart so many times, I stopped keepin track

Talk myself in

I talk myself out I get all worked up then I let myself down And I know someday that it'll all turn out {C}You'll make me work so we can work to work it out

And I promise you kid

That I'll give so much more than I get

I just haven't met you yet

Ryan, Nikki, Robert and Zach clap.

Ryan: Very good!

Connor: Thank you.

Ryan: They told me this week you were shy and reserved, you didn’t look like that now.

Connor: I’m not shy, I love making friends, but I just met these people, I’m not comfortable yet with this whole situation.

Ryan: Okay, you did great, I hope that if you’re still here next week you will stay as confident as you are now.

Connor: I promise you I will. Thank you.

Connor walks off the stage

Robert: So next is Jacob.

Nikki: Jacob has had trouble in the recording studio, he needed more energy, and we saw this too at the video shoot. He seemed disconnected.

Jacob walks on the stage

Jacob: Hi, my name is Jacob, and I’ll be singing Forever Young by Rod Stewart. May the good lord be with you

Down every road you roam

And may sunshine and happiness

Surround you when you're far from home

And may you grow to be proud

Dignified and true

And do unto others

As you'd have done to you

Be courageous and be brave

And in my heart you'll always stay

Forever young, forever young

Forever young, forever young

The judges clap.

Ryan: Jacob, they told me you needed more energy during the week and honestly, I felt that now. You need more confidence.

Jacob: I understand, it’s hard for me.

Ryan: If you stay another week, try doing it. Thank you.

Jacob leaves the stage

Robert: So next is Tyler. He has a great voice, but he also needs more confidence, he seemed he wasn’t confident enough at the video shoot.

Tyler walks onto the stage

Tyler: Hi! I’m Tyler and I’ll be singing Your Song by Elton John.

It's a little bit funny this feeling inside

I'm not one of those who can easily hide

I don't have much money, but boy if I did

I'd buy a big house where we both could live

And you can tell everybody this is your song

It may be quite simple but now that it's done

I hope you don't mind, I hope you don't mind that I put down in words

How wonderful life is while you're in the world

Judges clap

Ryan: Very good, Tyler.

Tyler: Thank you.

Ryan: You needed more confidence, but I think you are a confident guy. I think your trouble was standing out, if you stay here, develop it.

Tyler walks off the stage

Ryan : So, I think Connor can do better and will do better now.

-Flashes to the waiting room-

Connor: I let my nerves go, Ryan liked it, but, who knows?

-Flashes to auditorium-

Ryan: I think Jacob was very shy, this is a problem for him, I don’t know if he’ll get rid of it.

-Flashes to waiting room-

Jacob: I was very nervous, Ryan saw it.

-Flashes to auditorium-

Ryan: I think Tyler can be confident, but I don’t know.

-Flashes to waiting room-

Tyler: Ryan says I am confident I just have to show him I am.

-Flashes to auditorium-
