And then there were eight.
After a Sweet 16 that was really anything but sweet, we’re down to our final eight ladies in our 2014 Girl on Top tournament.
Some of the Sweet 16’s surprising ousters? Both of 2013’s finalists! Yes, Lost Girl’s Anna Silk and Zoie Palmer (last year’s winner) were knocked out of the competition, along with Glee fan favorite Naya Rivera and PLL’s Lucy Hale. Plus, tourney newbies Adelaide Kane and Megan Boone’s winning streaks came to an end.
But it’s time to move on and get to voting in the Elite 8!

Some of the small screen’s leading ladies set to duke it out in this round include the last OUAT star standing, two Emilys (Bett Rickards and VanCamp!) and Glee’s Lea Michele. But which of the remaining ladies will make it to the Final 4? Well, that’s up to you!
This round of voting closes Sunday, May 4, at 5 p.m. PT, with the final four ladies kicking off the penultimate round of competition bright and early Monday morning.

Who knew an EDM hit could make such a killer ballad? Rachel Berry, that’s who.
Lea Michele did this super cool thing leading up to the release of her debut album where she released a new song every week. And while this was indisputably awesome, we sorta got used to it and when the record finally dropped, hearing new tunes on the reg did too. Big huge enormous bummer. Fortunately, Glee exists and thanks to everyone’s favorite musical show—now in it’s fifth (!) season—we have a brand-new tune from Lea. OK, from Rachel Berry, but that’s just a technicality.
Glee’s back with another new episode tomorrow night and while we’re not going to offer up any inside intel (we’re firmly anti-spoiler over here), we got our hands on a new song straight from the episode a little early, and we’re sharing it with you now because it’s Monday and why not? (And also because Rachel Berry told us we could.)
She took Avicii’s amped-up hit “Wake Me Up” and slowed it down and turned it into a ballad, which only she could successfully do. We obviously don’t know the context of the song—it’s certainly not something she’ll sing as the leading lady of “Funny Girl,” which is what she’s currently up to—but we’re guessing it’s something more dramz. This is Rachel Berry we’re talking about.
Give it a listen, then tune in tomorrow night.
These ladies aren’t messing around.
Girl on Top 2014 is proving to be one of our most competitive tournaments ever, with four of round two’s head-to-head battles being decided by less than one percent, resulting in the ousting of fan faves such as Candice Accola and Julianna Margulies.
Alas, the show must go on!
Today, we’re kicking off the Sweet 16 of Girl on Top and we’re asking you to make eight difficult choices to find the small screen’s ultimate leading lady…
Some of the lucky ladies advancing to the Sweet 16? Two Lost Girl stars (who also happened to face off in the finals of last year’s tourney!), as well as two of Glee’s gorgeous gals and two OUAT ladies.

The World Music Awards will take place on May 27, in Monte-Carlo.
The singer Christina Perri is currently promoting her new album ‘Head’ and ‘Heart’ and in a recent interview when asked about “Jar of Hearts” being on Glee, she couldn’t stop gushing about Lea!
WCT: How was having your song “Jar of Hearts” on Glee?
CP: Oh my God. I am a huge Glee fan, too. I am so obsessed with Lea Michele [who plays Rachel]. She is my favorite—Spring Awakening, hello! When she did “Jar of Hearts” I remember it was actually the day my first album came out. We did not plan that. I don’t even know what you call that. It was the best luck ever. She sang the song so strongly. It was so rad, there is just no other way to put it. It was so overwhelmingly cool.
64 ladies. Six rounds of competition. One winner.
Girl on Top 214 is officially underway, y’all! Our annual tournament to find TV’s top leading lady kicks off its first round of competition today and judging from the wide range of nominations submitted by you, our dear readers, this year’s tourney is going to be the toughest yet!
Several newbies are making their Girl on Top debuts, including Orphan Black’s Tatiana Maslany, Sleepy Hollow’s Nicole Beharie and The Blacklist’s Megan Boone, while perennial fan favorites such as Mariska Hargitay from Law & Order: SVU and Stana Katic from Castle also found themselves back in the competition, as well as last year’s finalists, Lost Girl’s Zoie Palmer and Anna Silk, with Palmer taking home the (imaginary) trophy.
We’ve also got some costars battling it out for award, including trios from Game of Thrones and The Vampire Diaries, all four of Pretty Little Liars’ leading ladies, and pairs from The Good Wife, The Originals and Glee. (Fingers crossed we don’t cause any tension on set, this is a friendly competition, people!)

The “Glee” star and “Bad Words” actor are nearing deals for Kevin Lima’s animated movie
“Glee” star Lea Michele and talented child actor Rohan Chand (“Bad Words”) are nearing deals to voice two of the lead characters in DreamWorks Animation’s musical “Bollywood Superstar Monkey,” multiple individuals familiar with the project have told TheWrap.
Representatives for DreamWorks Animation and Michele did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
Kevin Lima, the “Enchanted” filmmaker who also directed Disney’s “Tarzan,” signed on in July 2011 to direct from a script by Gurinder Chadha and Paul Berges, who previously co-wrote “Bend It Like Beckham” together.
DWA’s first Bollywood-style animated musical adventure is loosely based on the “Ramayana,” an epic Indian tale about a man whose wife is kidnapped by a demon king.
Story follows monkey brothers Raj and Deepu, the latter of whom is younger and will be voiced by Chand. When Raj accidentally releases the ten-headed demon king Ravana from his enchanted sleep, the demon kidnaps Bollywood superstar Chandani. The unlikely sibling heroes then team up with Chandani’s pet monkey Pinki and embark on a thrilling journey to rescue Chandani, save their city and defeat Ravana.
Michele is in negotiations to voice the role of Pinki, though her deal has not closed yet.
