SOUND OFF: GLEE's Fabulous Feud Featuring Katy Perry & Lady GagaSOUND OFF: GLEE's Fabulous Feud Featuring Katy Perry & Lady Gaga
by Pat Cerasaro - November 8, 2013

Pitting two of the most influential and instrumental pop culture icons of modern music against one another, GLEE's 'A Katy Or A Gaga', written by Russel Friend and Garrett Lerner, directed by Ian Brennan, was a welcome return for the series following the short hiatus following the third episode of the season and the last time we ventured to the halls of McKinley High with the Cory Monteith tribute episode. So, with which pop superstar do your affections actually reside at the end of the day - Katy Perry or Lady Gaga? After all, that's what this week's ep was all about! Well, that and the debut of guest star Adam Lambert! (more...)

by Pat Cerasaro - October 11, 2013

“If there's one thing I've learned from Finn dying it's that shame is a wasted emotion,” Kurt (Chris Colfer) eloquently asserted mid-way through last night's unfortunately unavoidable and unabashedly emotional address of the passing of prominent GLEE cast member Cory Monteith, who portrayed star quarterback Finn Hudson on the series for its entire run until this year - and, unashamed was GLEE in its tribute to the fallen young star. And, unforgettable, as well. (more...)

Demi Lovato! The Beatles! Junior-Senior BundleProm! Tina… in the sky with diamonds! The sights and sounds of GLEE's second S5 ep were somewhat slight in the grand scheme of the show but wholly satisfying all the same, introducing an amusing frippery of a show written and directed by co-created Ian Brennan acting as a joyous appetizer before the dramatic and tragic events of next week's tribute to real-life fallen GLEE star Cory Monteith arrives. But, first, GLEE does The Beatles, Side B: Rubber Soul. Plus, let it be she: Rachel (Lea Michele) landed the role of Fanny in FUNNY GIRL! (more...)

The b*tch is definitely back! Before a stirring and pristine 'Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me' halfway through a 90-minute, five-star iTunes Music Festival show broadcast on Apple devices the world over earlier today, Elton John shared some pointed words following a few audience guffaws and jeers at his proclamation of adoration for and dedication to Simon Cowell's international boy band sensation One Direction: 'I love Harry, I love One Direction.

A FUNNY GIRL theme and returning guest star Idina Menzel? What more could any self-respecting Broadway baby - or, better yet, gleek - possibly ask for in an episode of GLEE 4.0? Well, last night, we got some out of control college antics - including hallway oil slides and the “Harlem Shake” in a fountain - sage wisdom via Coach Beiste (Dot Marie Jones) and Mr. Schue (Matt Morrison) and even an original tune by AVENUE Q's Tony Award-winning Jeff Marx, to name but a few fabulous features of the show. Yes, last night's GLEE was a continued effortlessly fun frolic and easy, breezy ride in the ever-entertaining musical series, acting as a sweet salve to last week's heart-stopping school shooting and ensuing Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch) drama.
