When Does It Start: Sunday June 12th at 9pm EST on Oxygen

In A Nutshell: 12 budding singing stars compete for a 7-episode guest-starring arc on the next season of Glee.

What’s It About: To be honest there’s not much I can add to the description above – the format is still under wraps!

What we do know is that Glee Executive Producer Ryan Murphy is over-seeing this spin-off (though lightly I suspect) which offers budding musical stars the chance to appear on Fox’s high school musical smash.

The contestants are the usual gamut of big voices and big egos, but in keeping with the Glee ethos there’s also plenty of hard luck back-stories. Alex lost his father to cancer, Matheus is just 4’9” tall and Hannah is plus size. But who will impress the judges and end up scooping that guest star slot?
