Based on who is listed as Glee Project’s cast, it seems like Lizzo didn’t make it.
The contenders, which are listed on Fandom for both of the series’ seasons, do not include Lizzo’s stage name or her birth name, which is Melissa Viviane Jefferson.
I don’t know about you, but I truly cannot imagine watching Lizzo’s audition without immediately making her the star of the show. But alas, most talented celebs come from humble beginnings.
The “Juice” superstar has actually been on the music scene for almost 10 years, and at one point, Lizzo almost quit the music industry.
After releasing “Truth Hurts,” it didn’t initially gain traction, and she was going to throw in the towel. But with some reassurance from her supportive friends and family, she kept going. Now, she’s made it to No. 1 on iTunes, and is collaborating with other big stars like Justin Timberlake. Truly the dream.
