Nineteen-year-old Samuel Larsen from Los Angeles and 18-year-old Damian McGinty of Derry City, Ireland, both won the inaugural season of “The Glee Project.”
According to the Associated Press, they will each get a seven-episode arc on “Glee.”
Larsen, a rocker with dreadlocks, was described as having a “cool, indy, rock spirit” that has been missing from the hit Fox show, while McGinty was believed to be the most likable and most improved.
The 10-week show put 12 contestants through a “Glee” bootcamp where they were critiqued on their singing, dancing and acting performances.
The show’s co-creator Ryan Murphy said he was so impressed with the other two finalists, Lindsay Pearce and Alex Newell, that he decided to write them into two episodes of the show.
The third season of “Glee” returns in September.
