'Glee': What was the biggest bombshell on the show last night? POLL

Time for a Gleek out!  You may have thought last night’s episode of Glee was going to be big, but who could have called everything that would happen in Lima on Valentine’s Day? The biggest plot point we all thought was pretty close to a sure thing – the Will and Emma wedding – didn’t happen, and instead, we got a jilted groom, hookups galore, new characters and even a possible pregnancy. Wowza. We have to wait three more weeks to find out what the next step is (Glee returns Mar. 7) but for now, what revelation got the biggest reaction out of you? I, for one, gasped out loud when Santana and Quinn got a hotel room (!) and then at the end when Rachel was waiting for the results of her pregnancy test (!!!).

Vote in our poll below and tell us which moment made you do a double-take. READ FULL STORY

8 things we learned from 'Glee Project' live chat

It was an emotional night on The Glee Project yesterday, with a talented final three — Ali, Aylin and Blake. After one final group number and a last-chance performance from all three, with tunes of their own choosing, Ryan Murphy was left with one very difficult decision. (Spoiler Alert!) Blake Jenner came away as the winner. After the show, there was a live webchat on Oxygen.com moderated by casting director Robert Ulrich and Glee guest star/Atlanta Housewife NeNe Leakes. Joining them in the studio were Blake, Ali, and Aylin, as well as Lily and Michael. The rest of the contestants popped in via webcam throughout the chat.

EW listened in to round up some of the contenders’ buzziest quotes.

Blake’s thoughts after he won: “[There were] so many emotions at once. I’m sure my mom is crying at home. I’m so grateful.”

Ali’s feelings on the finale: “Watching the finale, I still felt so nervous reliving it. Being a part of The Glee Project has changed my life. We met the most incredible people, and I feel on top of the world, ready to move on to the next thing.” READ FULL STORY

'The Glee Project' winner is...

After 11 weeks of competition, Ali, Blake, and Aylin were the final three contestants going into the Glee Project finale, and casting director Robert promised the trio that there would be only one winner. At the end of the hour, with final last-chance performances from all three, Ryan Murphy made up his mind. The winner of a seven-episode arc on Glee was (SPOILER ALERT!)…Blake! And yes, unlike last year, he was the only winner.

Murphy pointed out that it certainly wasn’t an easy decision, and going into tonight, it seemed like Blake was a bit of an underdog — both Ali and Aylin were buzzier names. The judges — as well as guest mentors such as Darren Criss (Team Ali) and Amber Riley (Team Aylin) — seemed to go back and forth between all three. But in the end, a newly vulnerable Blake, who wrote and read an emotional poem after his last-chance performance, walked away with the gig.

Did the right person win The Glee Project? Vote below, and stay tuned on EW.com for more Glee Project wrap-ups later today.

My Leap Day proposal: Feb. 29 will end in an engagement... or gloves?

Amy Adams doesn’t have the market cornered on Leap Day proposals — or self-embarrassment, for that matter. In my quest to make the most of the extra time the calendar elves have given me this year (suck it, Tracy Jordan and your $50,000 gift certificate to Benihana!), I’m looking to that great source of lore and historical accuracy: Wikipedia.

According to the site’s Leap Day page, not only do I have the right to propose to a man today, but if he says no, he has to buy me a dress or a dozen pairs of gloves — or hand over cold, hard cash. As we know, nothing heals the pain of rejection like material goods! Either way, I have only to gain from prostrating myself on the Internet. Game on, gentlemen! Below, I run down my prospects.

Best of 2011 (Behind the Scenes): 'Glee' choreographer Zach Woodlee on his busy year -- and his most challenging dance yet

As 2011 comes to a close, EW.com wanted to honor some of the hardworking names and faces from behind the scenes for their outstanding achievements and among the deserving is Glee choreographer Zach Woodlee. This year has been particularly big for Woodlee — and not just because the show’s dances have been more challenging than ever. Oxygen’s The Glee Project highlighted Woodlee’s week-to-week contribution to the show in a way casual fans had never seen before.  After watching Woodlee turn a novice group of aspiring Gleeks into dancing machines, we were left wondering — much like we do after watching the cast perform their elaborate dance numbers — “How does he do it?” Below, Woodlee told us how. For more behind the scenes access to the year’s best TV and movie scenes, click here for EW.com‘s Best of 2011: Behind the Scenes coverage.

To single out a year of Glee would be impossible. Most of the cast and crew have been together from the beginning, making it a tightly spun group of great people. When we are not shooting, we are touring. When we’re not working, we’re still together as friends. READ FULL STORY

'Glee': Talk about tonight's monster 'Mash-Off'

Not only do we have Santana doing an amazing rendition of Adele’s “Someone Like You” to look forward to tonight, but newcomer Damian McGinty promises something interesting for his character Rory and Finn as the New Directions face off against Troubletones. Let’s hope that includes more of that sweet, sweet voice.

Are you ready for tonight’s big show? Talk about tonight’s episode here, and, as always, be sure to come back to EW.com for my full recap!

Damian McGinty's 'Glee' debut: So how'd he do?

It may not be easy being green Rory Flanagan, but The Glee Project winner Damian McGinty’s big debut on Glee last night felt effortless. McKinley High hasn’t always been kind to its new students (Rory certainly learned that the hard way), and Glee doesn’t always know what to do with its newbies, (Chord Overstreet’s Sam has already been through the revolving door, though he’ll be back later this season) but McGinty seems like he could be a lifer. Well, at least until he has to graduate high school. READ FULL STORY

'Glee' returns tonight... and goes for the gold

Adam Rose/FOX

Yay! Baseball is finally over! And Glee returns tonight with Glee Project co-winner Damian McGinty (pictured), who shows up as new foreign exchange student Rory Flanagan. He’s staying with Brittany, who, of course, thinks he’s a leprechaun. I’m expecting loads of good Brittany-isms.

When we last saw Mercedes, she’d ditched New Directions for Shelby’s new glee club. Seems she’s gotten lonely over there with tone-deaf Sugar and sets out to recruit some other singers.

If McGinty is not enough to get you excited for the episodes to come, both Chord Overstreet’s Sam and Jonathan Groff’s Jesse St. James will be returning to the show soon. Life suddenly feels better now, huh?

Who else is looking forward to getting back to school? Talk about tonight’s episode here, and, as always, be sure to return to EW.com for my full recap!

'Glee' returns tonight: How does that make you feel?

Adam Rose/Fox

How do you feel about that headline? Are you so happy, you want to break out into song, or so angry, you just want to break something? Well, no matter how you feel, EW is here to serve your Glee needs. Sometime after the show, all my fellow Gleeks can log on to read my regular recap of the premiere to discuss what’s going on at McKinley High now that our little singers are starting another year and another run at the Nationals. (I’m personally a little excited to see Sue’s bid for Congress and all the insanity that will come from that, not to mention Mercedes’ new beau — yes, I said beau.)

But if you’ve groaned at every Glee headline this summer (and boy, were there a few) or are just waiting to unleash your latest rant  carefully crafted argument about how Glee is contributing to the downfall of society, join Keith Staskiewicz back here on PopWatch tomorrow for the first of his weekly meetings of the Diss-a-Glee Club. It’s always nice to meet with like-minded folk. Until then, you can watch tonight’s season premiere with us on our new second-screen app, EW.com’s ViEWer. Just click here to try it out. Do it!

'The Glee Project': First impressions are everything, and I already can't decide who I like most!

EW was the first to present to you the kids from The Glee Project, Oxygen’s reality show centered around finding the next cast member of Glee, and since then, the wanna-be misfits (strange paradox…) have released their first music video. Now I find myself in a first impression pickle a cynic like myself rarely experiences: I like a lot of them. Check out the video below, and then let’s chat: READ FULL STORY
