The pilot episode of Glee Season 2 is entitled “Audition.” It is scheduled to air on September 21, 2010. Formerly recurring cast members Heather Morris, Naya Rivera, and Mike O’Malley have been promoted to series regulars as Brittany, Santana Lopez, and Burt Hummel respectively.
In the said episode, Charice will portray the role of Sunshine Corazon, a foreign exchange student from the Philippines, with astounding and amazing killer vocals. She will present some serious competition against Rachel Berry.
Also making first appearance in the “Audition” episode just like Charice is Chord Overstreet who will portray the role of Sam Evans, another recurring character who is initially an athletic protégé of glee club member Finn Hudson (Cory Monteith), but becomes his rival.
Some of the regulars of Glee have nice things to say about our very own Charice.
Harry Shum Jr., who plays Mike Chang, commended the 18-year-old Filipina for being an incredible performer:
“She’s great. Everyone knows she can sing, sing, sing. And people forget that outside of her being able to sing, she’s an incredible performer. She loves to dance. It’s a little funny talking to her because we talk about dance and she always shows me her moves,” Shum said.
Jenna Ushkowitz (Tina Cohen-Chang) described Charice as amazing and adorable:
“Oh, Charice – she’s amazing, we’ve done a couple of scenes together. She’s adorable. I don’t know how a big voice like that can come out of such a little girl.”
Amber Riley (Mercedes Jones) said Charice is sweet and amazing:
“She’s so sweet. I love Charice. She has an amazing, amazing voice.”
