Ricky Martin And Naya Rivera Cover Madonna’s “La Isla Bonita” On ‘Glee’
Last night, Ricky Martin tangoed his way onto the top of our list of favorite Glee guest stars ever, playing Spanish language teacher (and former “tooth model”) Mr. Martinez. In addition to performing “Sexy And I Know It”, the Puerto Rican superstar and the show’s resident Latina Naya Rivera performed a duet of Madonna’s 1987 single “La Isla Bonita”. Ricky and Naya are en fuego during their number, but the real draw is to watch Mr. Schuester squirm in his seat as he faces the fact that his skills as both a Spanish teacher and a glee club coach have been trumped. Watch below.
Mr. Schuester responds to Mr. Martinez and Santana’s performance by dressing as a matador and launching into a flamenco-inspired version of “A Little Less Conversation.” It’s too embarrassing to post here, so go here if you want to facepalm en espanol.
In related Madonna news, Ryan Murphy is considering doing yet another tribute episode in honor of the singer – this time with the Queen of Pop appearing in the episode. “I want to do another Madonna episode, but I want Madonna to be on it,” Murphy told Andy Cohen during his appearance on Bravo’s Watch What Happens After The Show. “She says she would do it.”
But how? Would Madonna appear in dream sequences like Britney Spears did during her tribute episode? Would she be cast as a judge at regionals? Become the new adoptive mother of Quinn’s baby? So many options!
