Aylovet. A lesbian playing a butch straight character, covering a song from a straight gay icon. I love it when Sue sneers here and there, as if she couldn’t stand every second of playing dress up in Madonna clothes. The Madonna episode airs today! ETC airs it Wednesdays, at 4pm, then a replay at 10pm. Apparently, rumors of Madonna not being happy about Glee doing a Madonna episode is completely unfounded. Madonna herself professed a crush on Will Shuester and will reportedly catch the tribute episode when it finally airs.
The new episodes from Glee were okay, not great, but I really loved this cover:
The guy playing Rachel’s love interest, Jesse St. James, is openly gay theater actor, Jonathan Groff, who was the breakout star of Duncan Sheik’s musical, Spring Awakening.
And with the debut of Taye Digg’s wife Idina Menzel as Vocal Adrenaline’s coach, the Wicked pair is now complete, as Kristin Chenoweth appeared earlier. These two sang the original version of Defying Gravity, which Glee covered with Rachel and Kurt. Whew, talk about full circle!
