Last year a phenomenon was created on American TV as musical comedy-drama “Glee” first took to our screens. Ever since, the show has taken the world by storm. The cast took to the “X-Factor” stage to perform their most popular song, Don’t Stop Believing! Take a look below.

So far “Glee” has been very good at not specifying whether its characters are high school sophomores, juniors or seniors. But it can’t avoid the issue forever — in fact, co-creator Ryan Murphy is already looking ahead to graduation.
“I think you have to be true to the fact that here is a group of people who come and go in these teachers’ lives,” Murphy says in an interview with Australia’s Herald Sun newspaper. “They graduate and they’re gone.”
Murphy says he’s looking at the end of Season 3 in 2012 for at least some of the show’s characters — including, probably, Finn (Cory Monteith), Rachel (Lea Michele) and Quinn (Dianna Agron). “Every year we’re going to populate a new group,” he says in the interview. “There’s nothing more depressing than a high schooler with a bald spot.”
That means that, come Season 4 of the show, New Directions could have completely turned over its membership — which is what happens in any real high school, but can be a difficult thing to pull off on a TV series.
We’re curious to know what you think: Would you still watch “Glee” with a new group of students? (Source)

Anne Hathaway is gunning for a guest spot on Glee — and she’s already thought of a character to play! Take a look below, it actually sounds pretty good!
“In my head I’ve cast myself on Glee,” the 28-year-old Love and Other Drugs star said on Thursday’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. “I would want to play Kurt’s (Chris Colfer) long lost aunt, his mother’s sister, who is also gay, who comes back to help him deal with sexuality,” Anne revealed. “And I would sing ‘No One Is Alone’ from Stephen Sondheim’s epic show Into the Woods.”
Warning: If you’re still trying to collect yourself from the goodness of Gwyneth last night, this might really put you over the edge. Glee fans have been asking for a while now whether a certain fan-favorite guest star will be promoted to series regular, and I just got the good news that he will! So who is it?
Reliable sources confirm that Harry Shum Jr.— also known as Mike Chang, also known as the hot “Other Asian” dancer with abs of steel—will become a series regular next season.
What this means is that yes, we’ll be getting more ridonkulously good dance numbers from Harry (the fans go wild!) but also, sorry Artie, but it looks like your romantic rival might be all smooshy-wooshy with your girl Tina a while longer. Like Heather Morris (Brittany) and Naya Rivera (Santana) before him, Harry started off in season one as a background player but has moved more into the forefront—scoring his first dancing duet last night with Matthew Morrison (Mr. Schue).
Anyone else pleased to see Harry sticking around? Hit the comments. (Source)
Here comes the bride, all dressed in…racing stripes?
Glee’s Jane Lynch dished a little more on the top-secret, out-of-left-field wedding of Sue Sylvester, her acid-tongued coach character on the Fox smash.
“Sue is getting married and it is rather unconventional,” Lynch, 50, told UsMagazine.com Sunday at the L.A. Gay and Lesbian Center’s 39th Anniversary Gala in Century City, Calif. “I’m not going to say who or what, or even what sex,” Lynch teased, “But it is just so freakin weird — you’re going to love it.”
And the hard-nosed leader of the Cheerios squad will get out of her iconic tracksuit for her walk down the aisle — sort of!
“The [wedding] dress is so awesome,” Lynch told Us. “It’s by Ali Rahimi,” her costume designer, who also made her Emmy and Golden Globes gowns. “He made a Sue Sylvester designer track suit wedding dress!”
In real life, Lynch had her own less wacky nuptials in June. She wed psychiatrist Dr. Lara Embry at a Massachusetts restaurant with an intimate party of just 21 guests. (Source)

Glee is showing symptoms of tribute fatigue. Despite talk that the Fox hit’s post-Super Bowl episode would be a love letter to either Bruce Springsteen or Michael Jackson, we’re hearing producers are strongly reconsidering the single-singer route. Word is Ryan Murphy & Co. are leaning toward staging a “regular” episode of Glee after SB XLV featuring music from a variety of artists rather than a stunt-heavy hour, a-la Britney and Madonna.
Of course, given that Glee will likely draw its biggest audience in its two-year history, you can bet there will be at least a few bells and whistles. (Source)
Below is a sneak peek of Darren Criss (Kurt’s future boyfriend) headlining an a cappella version of Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream” in the all-new “Glee” episode, Never Been Kissed, airing this Tuesday at 8 p.m. on Fox. Take a look below:
