Harry Shum Jr., who plays Mike Chang on ‘Glee,’ visited ‘The Glee Project‘ tonight to help the contestants with the thing he knows best: Dancing.

When the ‘Glee’ famer entered the room, it was instantly filled with starstruck and squealing contestants — girls, mostly. As the first New Directions member to grace the Oxygen screen, having Shum share some sage advice was a real treat for the hopefuls.

It was Harry’s responsibility to pick the best dancer from this week’s homework assignment, which was Train‘s ‘Hey, Soul Sister.’ He said specifically he was looking for some “cool moves,” and told Cameron he stood out a bit too much, while McKynleigh didn’t shine quite enough. As for Alex, Harry suggested to keep it song-appropriate to blend in, and in the end, he chose Samuel — who sported some Michael Jackson moves — as the winner.

“It’s not about being amazing all the time, it’s about showing your personality and just owning it,” he told the contestants. After they paired up, Samuel said he felt “really good” about their one-on-one session, and got to stand at the forefront of this week’s music video. He even brought out those MJ-inspired spins in an alley shot while shooting MC Hammer’s ‘Can’t Touch This.’

At the end of the episode, Samuel was delighted to see that he was not in the bottom three, though sad to see McKynleigh Abraham get voted off.
