GLEE: Madonna Episode Sneak Peak
Fab news for Gleeks around the world jonesing for the new season of GLEE to start on April 13th: Entertainment Tonight teased us with a sneak peak at the all Madonna episode of GLEE.
Rumors are criss-crossing the blogosphere about which songs from Madonna’s 25-year career will be featured on GLEE, the hit Fox show and winner of Best Comedy or Musical Series at the Golden Globes. The preview clip reveals the first official GLEE version of one of Madonna’s hits: “Express Yourself” sung by Michele Lea, who plays the beleaguered Rachel. Dianna Agron, who plays former head Cherrio Quinn Fabray, is reportedly singing “Papa Don’t Preach” while Jane Lynch‘s Sue Sylvester takes on “Vogue.”
“It’s got like 10 numbers in it, and the production value is very big,” revealed creator Ryan Murphy about the upcoming episode. “We adore her and worship her, so when I’m directing, I’m always like, ‘Do it for Madonna.’”
What will Madonna’s reaction be if our Gleeks fail to impress with their tribute? This is how Sue sees it: “Somewhere in the English countryside in a stately manor home, Madonna is weeping.”
