    Amber's voice is so recognizable to Glee fans. She's been killing it since 2009! To this day I think the Glee cast had the most talented group of people in the industry working. A small few were lame ducks but for the most part that original cast displayed more acting, singing, dancing, and comedic talent than anything else you'd ever seen on tv before or since.

      Glee was peak television. It had SO much diversity. A Indian principal, a transgender coach, multiple lgbtq+ students, different races, different religions. NO show before or since then has ever had such a diverse cast. Glee was perfect up until season 5

      @AJ Haywood honestly I think Thirsty would have been the one to swap with Kevin. But I fully agree.
      Heather on Masked Dancer, Amber on Masked Singer, and Kevin and Jenna on Secret Celeb Drag Race… clearly they have always been more than being on one TV series, but they are showing everyone that talent and performance is innate.
