Fox television series GLEE has another reason to celebrate; famed R&B singer Eve will appear on the new show, according to Entertainment Weekly's Michael Ausiello. Eve will play a "no-nonsense girls' choir director from a rival school." The Grammy Award-winning singer will appear in a two-episode arc.
Ausiello had earlier reported that Superstar Whitney Houston had been in early negotiations to play the role, but Houston ultimately turned the offer down.
GLEE will have its series premiere Wednesday, September 16 at 9pm EST. The Ryan Murphy series had a special sneak preview on May 19.
Following its sneak preview, Fox television series GLEE has broken into the Billboard Hot 100 chart with its recording of Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'". The track is the chart's Hot Shot Debut at No. 4. The feat is even more impressive as nine tracks charted from American Idol winner Kris Allen and runner-up Adam Lambert, but those were all outsold by the GLEE recording.
GLEE'S remake surpasses the original 1981 Journey recording of the song, which peaked at No. 9.
In a broadcast first, GLEE, the new one-hour musical comedy series from Ryan Murphy ("Nip/Tuck"), had a special preview following AMERICAN IDOL on Tuesday night, May 19th on FOX. The show will premiere in the fall in a regular time slot as of yet unannounced, but you can catch a sneak peek of the upcoming episodes right here on STAGE TUBE!
