By now it’s no secret that the cast of Glee will be taking a bow to the Madonna back catalog in the April 20th episode of the series. But what was that trilling over a the airwaves with such conviction during an American Idol commercial break last night? Why, it was almost like a religious experience. In fact, it was a religious experience—it was Lea Michele singing Madge’s 1989 hit “Like A Prayer” in a brand new Glee promo! (Sadly, there was nary a sight of her making out with a saint in the clip.) Watch below, Gleeks!
Ah, it’s like school is back in session and we’re convening with all our friends during lunch to talk about what we did over break—you know, at the unpopular table, of course.
Now, a Glee cast mini album called The Power Of Madonna—which features eight Material Girl covers, including a “Borderline/Open Your Heart” mashup—is out April 20, and we already know that Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch) is singing “Vogue.”
But, forgive us, Father—for we are praying that either Kurt (Chris Colfer) or Finn (Cory Monteith) landed “Like A Virgin.” Or at the very least, give William McKinley High’s star kicker “What It Feels Like For A Girl.” (Oh, hush—you know that would be good television.)
Sigh. Four more weeks. Time goes by so slowly, indeed, Madonna.
