Glee returns next Tuesday with a brand new episode, and a guest appearance by The Glee Project winner Damian McGinty. We have a video, which features McGinty as he talks about appearing on the show, and includes a bit of footage of the Irish performer in action.

McGinty is set to play a foreign exchange student on Glee, in the episode, fittingly titled “Pot O’ Gold.” From the looks of the video, Brittany takes a liking to him.

Between the episode title, McGinty’s heritage and accent, and Brittany’s fondness for unicorns, is it too much of a stretch to predict she thinks the new kid is a leprechaun? Regardless, not having seen The Glee Project, the above video is my first bit of exposure to McGinty and it seems clear that he can sing. It’ll be interesting to see how his character fits into the story beyond just being a foreign exchange student.

Glee returns Tuesday, Nov. 1 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
