International Pop Star and our very own Charice and Newcomer Chord Overstreet Guest-Star.
After a tough loss at Regionals, the glee club is back as the underdogs of McKinley High. When the school is faced with even more budget cuts, Mr. Schuester pushes the kids to help recruit new members for the club. Rachel and Finn disagree on new recruits, and aren’t sure they will be able to come together in perfect harmony in the season premiere episode “Auditions.”
Ryan Murphy, the Glee series creator, said that the episode is about “the idea that everybody’s daily life is an audition for something.” In this season premiere, Heather Morris (“Brittany”), Naya Rivera (“Santana”), and Mike O’Malley (“Burt Hummel”) have been promoted to series regulars. Recurring characters will include Chord Overstreet as Sam Evans who is introduced as an athletic protégé of glee club member Finn Hudson (Cory Monteith) but later becomes his rival, and Charice as Sunshine Corazon who plays a foreign exchange student who will become a rival to Rachel Berry (Lea Michele).

It will be aired via sattelite in the Philippines (around 4:00 p.m. of September 22) on Jack TV.
