It’s safe to say that Glee‘s Rachel (Lea Michele) and Blaine (Darren Criss) both enjoy a nice Broadway show tune. The pair get to pay homage Tuesday night to Stephen Sondheim, one of the masters of musical theater, whose work is highlighted on the latest episode of Glee, airing at 8 p.m. on Fox. In this exclusive clip, Rachel and Blaine perform “Broadway Baby” from Sondheim’s Follies for NYADA’s Carmen Tibideaux (guest star Whoopi Goldberg) at their mid-winter critique. Watch below.

Tag: Glee (14-26 of 492)
Shirley MacLaine is headed to Ryan Murphy-ville — but, sadly, it’s not American Horror Story.
Instead, the Oscar-winner (who was most recently seen on television strutting around Downton Abbey) will have a multi-episode arc on Glee, EW has confirmed. TVLine, which first reported the news, says she’ll portray a New York socialite intent on turning Blaine (Darren Criss) into a superstar. (I mean, someone has to go up against Rachel for Broadway supremacy…)
Her first episode is slated to air later this month. Glee recently saw its episode order this season cut from 22 to 20, but the show will return for a final, NYC-centric season next year. READ FULL STORY
Glee has packed up and moved its focus to New York, and Tuesday night’s episode, airing at 8 p.m. ET on Fox, finds Blaine (Darren Criss) and Kurt (Chris Colfer) co-habitating (along with Chord Overstreet’s Sam). Since this is Glee, it all makes a couple of fellas wanna burst into song. Watch below as Klaine duets on “You Make Me Feel So Young.” READ FULL STORY
Now that’s what I call a field trip!
In Tuesday night’s episode of Glee, Gwyneth Paltrow again guest stars as Holly and takes the Glee Club on a field trip to a foam party — though it’s still not clear why Paltrow is dressed up like Temple Grandin at the beginning. But, she ends up shedding that look when she takes the kids back in a 70s time warp to “Party All The Time”, even though the original Eddie Murphy version was released in 1985. Get your disco on below with a sneak peek of the number:
'Glee' 100th episode party, On the Scene: Stars look back on 100 episodes, reveal whose song they would steal
When Glee first debuted in 2009, the Fox series incorporated music in a way that hadn’t been seen on television before. Without any big-name stars in the cast, the show was a definite risk. Now, more than five years and 100 episodes later, the risk has more than paid off. With a 3-D film, sold-out concert tours, millions of albums sold, and Billboard records broken, the cast and crew got together in Hollywood on Tuesday night — the same night the show’s 100th episode aired — with plenty to celebrate. EW was on the scene and asked the cast to look back at the phenomenon that they helped create.
“We were always the little show that could,” said Chris Colfer, who won a Golden Globe for his work as Kurt on the show. “When the first episode aired, everyone said, ‘Oh, it’s cute, but it’ll never last,’ ’cause a musical could never work on television, so it’s really validating to be here.” Colfer was joined by some of his original castmates for the special 100th episode, including Dianna Agron, Mark Salling, and Amber Riley. Many will also return later this season to see Rachel’s Broadway debut with the opening night of Funny Girl, which the cast just finished filming in New York City. The series will now completely relocate outside of Ohio to the Big Apple for the remainder of the series, which will end next year after six seasons.
“It’s amazing the amount of stories we’ve told,” co-creator Ian Brennan told EW. “Particularly in the way that we tell stories, but even sitting there today as we were talking about where we want to end up in the show, it’s amazing the stories we haven’t told, which I think leaves this last year…to be really exciting creatively.” Brennan is credited with coming up with some of the most memorable one-liners that Jane Lynch spits out as Sue Sylvester. Lynch’s favorite memories of the past 100 episodes come from the start when she was first creating the character and relationships with the Glee kids that would end up lasting for years. “I’m a great beneficiary of great writing and a great track suit, and it was kind of a job that came together at the right time for me, so I’m grateful for that.” Lynch’s favorite early Sue zingers?

Tuesday marks the return of Glee after their winter hiatus and a new night (Tuesday) and time (8 p.m. ET) for the Fox musical hit. The new episode, fittingly titled “Frenemies,” finds Santana (Naya Rivera) playing understudy to Rachel (Lea Michele) in the Broadway revival of Funny Girl. Naturally, this does not bring them closer. Watch Santana nail “Don’t Rain on My Parade” (which Rachel previously performed at Sectionals in season 1) in the clip below! READ FULL STORY
The wait for Glee fans is finally over!
The Fox musical comedy returns Tuesday night with a brand-new episode titled Frenemies, where Santana auditions and snags the role of Rachel’s understudy in Funny Girl, causing a feud resulting in Rachel moving out. Back in Lima, Tina and Artie battle to be the class valedictorian. Last month, Fox confirmed the show would be moving permanently to New York City for the remainder of the current season and for season 6, which will be the series’ last. EW talked to the cast on the Glee set while celebrating their special two-part 100th episode airing March 18 and March 25, when several past members of the New Directions come back to McKinley for a week to celebrate what the now-disbanded (!) glee club did for them. Read on to find out exactly when we will be saying goodbye to Lima, plus some teases about upcoming performances. Can you say foam party? READ FULL STORY
Ryan Murphy, the co-creator of Glee, delivered a eulogy at a private memorial service in July for Cory Monteith. Read an excerpt below.
For me, Cory was both the beginning and the ending of Glee…literally.
The first scene of the pilot was Cory’s Finn and Matt [Morrison]‘s Mr. Schu. None of us really knew what we were doing. Glee was a musical, musicals had never worked on television, and we were figuring it out as we went along. At the end of his first take, Cory could see I, his director, was a little unsure. He came up to me with a big grin and said, “This is going to be fun.” He was terribly right, and terribly wrong. READ FULL STORY
