7 Artists That Need To Be “Madonna’d” On ‘Glee’ Right Now!

While we think it’s great that Glee creator Ryan Murphy sees some seriously potential in an all-Britney Spears episode of his hit musical dramedy, why stop at kooky blondes? We figured there must other artists who would be a perfect fit for New Directions. We got our Glee-gears spinning and came up an all-star list of pop artists who have more than earned their own Madonna-style Gleek-ing. Sadly, Mariah Carey and Phil Collins did not make the cut, but check after the jump to see the seven stars we’d like to see with an “L” on their foreheads.

#7. Beyonce

Glee already rocked “Halo” this season, but now we’d love to see some “Independent Woman/Survivor” action from Beyonce’s Destiny’s Child days, and the cherry on top would be the New Direction girls doing “Irreplaceable” (above).

#6. Green Day

Does it get more perfect than a Green Day graduation episode, complete with Finn doing “Good Riddance” on the acoustic guitar?

#5. Gwen Stefani/No Doubt

Where do we even begin with this one? “I’m Just A Girl”, “Cool”, “Hollaback Girl” complete with the Cheerios dressed up like Harajuku girls? The only thing more perfect would be Rachel Berry belting out “Bathwater” (above).

#4. Justin Timberlake

We’d love to see another episode filled with Madonna-esque obsessiveness, only this time with Mr. Schu narrating, journaling, and discussing his love for all things JT (see also: Mr. Schu’s wardrobe for complete Timberlake admiration). Perhaps (yet another) scorned lover episode complete with a “Cry Me A River/What Goes Around” mash up?

#3. The Beach Boys

Why? Because it would be fun, fun, fun. The real reason why:  “God Only Knows”.

#2. Hall & Oates

Daryl and John are back in the zeitgeist (did they ever really leave?). We want to see some New Directions choreography to “You Make My Dreams Come True” that completely squashes Vocal Adrenaline.

#1. George Michael

A touch of “Careless Whisper”, a dash of “Faith, a sprinkle of “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go”, and of course a healthy helping of “Freedom 90” would make for the ultimate Glee episode.

Got another artist in mind? Disagree with our choices? Chime in below. We welcome all comments from the peanut gallery.
