Victor Shane Anthony Payne is a central character in Glee: Starlight Sensation. He attends Harrison High and is a sophomore. His dream is to be become a star, which is why he joined the glee club: Starlight Sensation. To others, he comes out as vain, selfish and talkative which is why he is disliked by many. Including his siblings. But there is no denying that Shane has superstar written all over him.

Shane is potrayed by Max Schneider.


Shane is described as very narcisstic, selfish and loving to hug the spotlight. Whenever a person's voice is just as strong as his, he gets very jealous and intimadated. He also comes off as being a show-off and one of the most annoying boys in glee club. But he has some good qualities as well.

Style of ClothingEdit

Shane usually wears T-shirts and jeans very often. He's obsessed with his hair more than his clothing.



Shane first appears in Pilot where he signs up for auditions to recruit members for Starlight Sensation, saying that the glee club is the key to him getting famous. His character is shown through Valerie yelling at him to stop combing his hair and him uploading youtube videos to become famous. He sings Love Is Gone as his audition song and is the first to be accepted into the glee club. He sings Gettin' Over You with his new glee club members.

I Dreamed A DreamEdit

Shane is first seen getting ready for school, when Valerie enters and advises him to be careful because Starlight Sensation had a bad reputation. Next he is seen bossing everyone around and lecturing them that they had to recruit some members. He witness Phoenix Early's audition and applauds not intimdated at all. He is bullied by James and slushied by Samantha when he stands up for his club. His mother comforts him by singing Beautiful Boy, a lullaby she sang when he was a baby. He is devastated when his father ridicules him for wanting to be a star and not a military officer (His brother is in the army). He sings Never had a Dream Come True, at the end of the episode.
