glee mercedes kurt meet wade 'The Glee Project' welcomes Chris Colfer, Darren Criss and Amber Riley as mentorsSeason 2 of “The Glee Project” started off with a bang as both Ryan Murphy and “Glee” star Lea Michele surprised the contestants during their very first challenge. Cory Monteith and Naya Rivera are already scheduled to appear later in the season, and now more “Glee” stars have been confirmed for the Oxygen reality show: Chris Colfer, Darren Criss and Amber Riley will all drop by to mentor the contestants during the summer hit.

Murphy confirmed after a “Glee Project” panel in Los Angeles June 7 that Colfer, Criss, Riley and Jane Lynch will all appear as guest mentors during “The Glee Project’s” summer run, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“The funny thing about the mentors for this season is that the ‘Glee’ cast really wanted to do it,” Murphy says. “The first season, they did not want to do it but then they all watched the show and they became fans of the show and for the most part they called me and said, ‘I want to do it!”

There will only be one winner this year, he stresses, who will take home a seven-episode arc on “Glee.”

Who are you most looking forward to on “The Glee Project”?
