'Glee' wants YOU! to audition! to be on 'Glee'! (If you can sing really well, that is)
Think you could be "Glee's" next Mercedes Jones?
For the Gleeks among us, there's good news today: Fox has renewed "Glee" for a second season.
But for the Gleeks among us who can actually sing, there's news that's even more exciting: Three new cast members will be added to the show, and "Glee" will conduct a nationwide casting search beginning this February to fill the slots.
Um, haters need not apply.
Did we just hear an extremely well-pitched squeal go up around the country? Especially in New York and L.A.?
[CLICK HERE for official "Glee" audition information. The Ministry of Gossip is not involved with the process in any way, so you have to go to Fox for information. Fox says auditions will be open to candidates who are ages 16 to 26 years old. Thanks!]
Information on how to submit audition tapes has yet to be released, so don't go sending stuff randomly to "'Glee' auditions c/o Hollywood," OK? We'll do our best to keep you posted.
