Runner up Lindsay Pearce as seen on Glee
|Date Eliminated||NA, Runner Up|
Lindsay Pearce was a contender in the Glee Project, a competitive competition made to award the winner a seven-role appearance in the popular television show, Glee. Lindsay eventually became a runner up and was awarded a two-role appearance. Lindsay was asked to be on the show after displaying her amazing voice and activing ability at the auditions. Lindsay's ability to sing and act swept the others' ability and was easily considered the best.
Lindsay's personality isn't an easy one to name; she's constantly trying to be someone different and attempting to find herself throughout the show. Her amazing voice and ability to act was easily brought down by her inability to be herself and know who she was. Ryan Murphy told her that she needed to stop being the person everyone wanted and to be the person she was. This task had Lindsay weighed down most of the competition, but by the last performance Ryan thought she had done the task very well. Because of this, she was rewarded a two-role appearance on Glee.
Throughout the show and during her task of finding herself, Lindsay shows that she's a very strong person. She claims that being an adopted child has made her have to fight for attention and acceptance and that this quality will not be able to be turned off. Her confidence about this almost gets her off the show, but her hasty reply to change herself kept her until the very last episode.

 Elimination Date
During the last episode, Glee-ality (TGP), Lindsay and the others were faced with dancing and singing on top of a skyscraper to show who deserved the role. Lindsay, like the others, was forced to sing a last chance performance in front of her old, eliminated friends and some of the mentors, actual Glee Cast Members, to try and win the competition. When Ryan tells her she did not win, she kindly understands and stands to the side. It's not until he announces that both her and Alex Newell also win, she cries in joy.

Lindsay's first appearance on Glee was outstanding! When Rachel Berry and Kurt Hummel go looking for life after highschool, they run into a group of performers whom they consider competition. At first, the two disregard the thought of competition and don't see how they can't make it as stars in life. When entering the room, however, Lindsay, dressed and acting exactly how both Rachel and Kurt act, presents them with the song "Anything you can do I can do better", which leaves them both heart broken and ashamed of themselves for thinking they were special.
Lindsay portrays the character of Harmony who also wants to attent NYADA, the performing arts school in New York that both Rachel and Kurt want to attend. Her first appearance was in The Purple Piano Project.
