Another Gleekster Not Appreciated by 19

By now, most of you know that the incredibly gifted Amber Riley,   Mercedes on Glee, was scorned by American Idol producers when she auditioned for the show a few years ago. She didn’t make it past the 2nd round audition with the producers.

Now, it turns out that Heather Morris, who plays Glee’s airheaded cheerleader, Brittany, was dumped from So You Think You Can Dance right before the Top 20 a few seasons ago.

After the jump, watch Heather get cut by the judges, while her BFF sails through to the Top 20.

It must have been sad at the time, but I’m sure her tears dried up when she became part of the Glee cast–one of the most talented ensemble casts on television right now. Go Heather.
