Sexy Sneak Peek Of GLEE's Lady Gaga 'Applause' Tribute

Sexy Sneak Peek Of GLEE's Lady Gaga 'Applause' TributeGLEE mastermind Ryan Murphy has taken to Twitter to post the very first sneak peek of GLEE's upcoming tribute to futuristic trend-setting pop icon Lady Gaga, in an episode set to be centered on Gaga's ongoing chart feud with fellow major modern music maker Katy Perry.

Murphy wrote, "Chord Gaga" and attached an attention-gleaning monochrome photo of the Glee headliner, captured on set.

A pumped-up Chord Overstreet is pictured in the new shot, sans shirt, donning Epic skeleton angel wings and effortlessly evoking the unusual and eye-grabbing mise en scene of Lady Gaga's most recent music video, the first single from her forthcoming album ARTPOP, "Applause".

The drama for the forthcoming episode titled "A Katy Or A Gaga" will feature the introduction of recognizable American Idol standout Adam Lambert as Starchild, a new character with an unique name seeming to more than subtly reference the real-life theatre and music group co-founded by Glee lead Darren Criss, Team Starkid.

Additionally, X FACTOR judge and pop star Demi Lovato will also continue her recurring arc in this episode - the fourth of the fifth season, set to follow the Cory Monteith tribute episode.

As for the music, "A Katy Or A Gaga" will reportedly include takes on classic hits as well as brand new songs from the highly anticipated feuding Fall albums by Lady Gaga and Katy Perry, ARTPOP and PRISM, respectively.

The song-list for the episode reportedly includes Lambert and Lovato leading the entire cast on Perry's "Roar", while Darren Criss joins with some New Directions vocalists - including Chord Overstreet, clearly, as we can now see - for Gaga's "Applause". Also, Lambert is set to sing a solo rendition of Gaga's BORN THIS WAY rocker "Marry The Night" while Katy Perry's "Wide Awake" also makes an appearance in the song-stack for the ep in a group cover.
