Celtic Thunderis a musical sensation, with fans across the globe. The youngest member, Damian McGinty, took a break from the musical to enter the Glee Project with the winner getting a role on the hit show glee . Damian, along with another contestant won and appeared in 17 episodes last season, ten more than they'd orginally signed him up to do! He played the lovable foreign exchange student that joined the group mid-semester.

Damian performed the song Little Things, and chatted with guest host Kim Holcomb about his life since Celtic Thunder, his experience on the Glee Project and glee - and his upcoming summer tour with Celtic Thunder castmate Paul Byrom.
