Based on the picture above, I’d say he has what it takes to be a bottom ;)
On America’s Next Top Model, Tyra Banks plays the dotting supportive mentor. On tonight’s Glee, Banks gets to channel her inner bitch by playing a tough modeling agent. Fittingly enough, her character’s name is Bichette. She reveals in the behind-the-scenes clip, her experiences as a young model with bitchy agents serves as inspiration for her portrayal.
If Banks isn’t enough to make you tune in to tonight’s episode, perhaps a shirtless Chord Overstreet will do the trick. Contrary to Bichette’s advice, I think Sam needs to gain ten pounds instead of losing it. More muscle preferably. He heads to New York with Blaine to visit Rachel, Kurt and Santana. Also on Glee tonight, the Gleeks pay homage to Billy Joel. Check out both Tyra’s BTS clip and “Movin’ Out” promo below.
I just got around to watching Glee’s latest episode now. I ended up going out way too late last night. Nic was back in town, plus Brian had a colleague visiting as well. Naturally, I had to play host and head out on the town. Always a team player ;)
Based on the ratings last night, not many of you caught “A Katy or A Gaga.” The Fox show tied a series low. In all honesty, this season is a little off. Mostly likely due to the untimely death of Cory Monteith. I haven’t been at all engaged with any of the storylines. I tune out for most off the show with exception to the musical performances. They’re the best part of the show.
Last night’s “Roar” and “Applause” covers were hilarious and sexy. The facial reactions of the cast plus the shirtless moments of Jacob Artist, Blake Jenner and Chord Overstreet made them thoroughly entertaining but for very different and obvious reasons. Check them out below.
We’ve already heard Adam Lambert slay Lady Gaga’s “Marry The Night” and now we get to hear him take on a Katy Perry track. How nice of Ryan Murphy to not force Glambert to take sides on Glee’s episode, “A Katy or a Gaga.” So nice ;)
Joining him on Perry’s “Roar” is guest star Demi Lovato. While I love both Demi and Adam, I’m not a huge fan of the track. I would’ve preferred them collaborating on another Katy track. “Unconditionally” and “Dark Horse” are far more superior off her latest album, Prism. In addition to their “Roar” duet, listen to the Glee cast cover Gaga’s “Applause” and Katy’s “Wide Awake” below.
When Glee returns this Thursday, Adam Lambert makes his debut. Based on the stills and audio of his “Marry The Night” performance, it should be a memorable and thrilling extravaganza. I wouldn’t expect anything less.
In a behind-the-scenes clip, Lambert introduces his character Elliott Gilbert who goes by the stage name Starchild. He also talks about initially auditioning for Glee years ago, but producers told him he was too old. Apparently, Glambert found the fountain of youth and now is Glee-ready. Speaking of looks, his skin looks fantastic in the vid. Remember when he was on American Idol? It wasn’t nearly as flawless back then.
Check out the clip below where Chris Colfer and Demi Lovato sing his praises.
Lady Gaga’s little monsters are probably going to crucify me for saying this, but Adam Lambert just showed her up. His cover of “Marry The Night” absolutely slays. He should really book some recording studio time with Fernando Garibay who co-wrote the track. The two of them can create magic together.
Other songs being performed when Glee returns November 7 include Gaga’s “Applause” and Katy Perry’s “Wide Awake” and “Roar.” Lambert teams up with fellow guest star Demi Lovato on the latter. I can’t wait to hear their rendition. In the meantime give Adam’s “Marry The Night” a listen below.
If there is one thing Glee always gets right, it’s their video spoofs. Based on preview pics for “A Katy or A Gaga,” Ryan Murphy and company nailed both “Roar” and “Applause” homages. The picture alone of Artie (Kevin McHale) swinging on a vine in his wheelchair already had me chuckling. Meanwhile, the visual of Sam (Chord Overstreet) wearing Victoria’s Secret Fashion show-worthy wings while shirtless had me excited for another reason ;)
When Glee returns on November 7, both the gang in Lima and New York explore who they are as artists. They go on this journey of discovery using, naturally of course, the music of Katy Perry and Lady Gaga. If that wasn’t enough gay for a Thursday evening, Adam Lambert makes his debut during this episode. Glambert, Gaga and Perry oh my. Check out more preview pics below.
Gleeks embrace yourselves. Ryan Murphy confirmed Season 6 will be the last for the FOX musical show. The Glee co-creator revealed this during a Paley Center event honoring FX Networks Wednesday night. Murphy was there in support for his other show American Horror Story: Coven. Murphy’s confirmation of the plan to wrap the show after season six appeared to catch Fox and studio 20th Century Fox TV off guard on Thursday morning.
Did you catch Ryan Murphy and company’s tribute to Cory Monteith on Glee last night? I can’t even imagine how difficult it was for the writers, crew and especially actors to film this episode. With emotions still raw, I’m certain plenty of tears were shed during filming.
Did it live up to the hype? Given the delicate nature, producers did a solid job. It was a little uneven and disjointed at parts, but when it was on, they got it right. Without question, Lea Michele’s “Make You Feel My Love” performance was the most heartbreaking. I’m certain those tears were 100 percent authentic.
Other musical standouts include Amber Riley’s “I’ll Stand By You” and Kevin McHale & Chord Overstreet’s duet on “Fire & Rain.” On the complete opposite spectrum, Naya Rivera’s “If I Die Young” disappointed. It sounded too fast, plus her storyline seemed forced. Why Dianna Agron wasn’t invited is beyond insane. Besides Kurt Hummel and Rachel Berry, Quinn had the closest connection to Finn and not Santana. I really hope behind the scenes drama and politics weren’t the reason for Quinn’s omission.
At the end of the episode, FOX aired PSAs filmed by the actors persuading people to help others, who are struggling with addiction. They urged people to call 1-800-662-HELP and find help on a treatment website. Profits from official track sales will go to Monteith’s favorite charity, Project Limelight. Check out all the performances from “The Quarterback” below and be sure to weigh in with your thoughts on the episode afterwards.
UPDATE: The tribute episode gave Glee it’s biggest audience in more than a year with 7.4 million tuning in. The episode tied ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy for the lead among adults 18-49 in its hour.
