As Glee's New Directions makes its way to Regionals this week, Cory Monteith (Finn) gives us some scoop on the season's final episodes — and tells kids how they can sing for him and win big moolah for their own glee clubs.
TV Guide Magazine: Tuesday's episode finds New Directions performing in Regionals before a judging panel consisting of Kathy Griffin as judge Tammy Jean Albertson, Loretta Devine as Sister Mary Constance and Lima, Ohio's very own WOHN news anchor Rod Remington. What can we expect?
A slushie cart is wheeled across the stage where the cast of Glee is prepping to film the big Regionals showdown. The Dalton Academy Warblers and Coach Sue's recently acquired Aural Intensity wait in the wings. Uh-oh. Is New Directions in for a stinging, sweet-and-sticky ending?
Not likely. For the competition (premiering Tuesday at 8/7c), McKinley High's perpetually bullied gleeks are taking back the slushie, so to speak, and there's giddiness in the air.
Listen to Glee's original songs "Loser Like Me" and "Get It Right"
In Los Angeles' Saban Theater, crew members are equipping the audience, today made up of extras and some lucky Glee fans, with L-shaped foam fingers. The slushie cart is, in fact, a prop that will be used during New Directions' performance of "Loser Like Me," an infectious, geek-empowering kiss-off written especially for the episode. This time, the gleeks will be wielding the frozen drinks.
By now, you'd think the kids of William McKinley High would have had enough of silly love songs. But we got a peek at Glee's emotional Valentine's Day episode, and we see that isn't so.
With cupid circling over more than one couple in crisis tonight, glee club director Will Schuester (Matthew Morrison) asks his students to express their feelings through song. "My assignment to the kids is to have them perform love ballads," says Morrison. But for some, the holiday will prove painful. "It's high school, so the couplings are sporadic," explains Morrison, "just as it is in any real high school."
McKinley High's resident bully Dave Karofsky says in real life, he's "all for dancing and singing."
"I'd jump on 'Thriller' in a heartbeat," Max Adler, who plays Karofsky, told TVGuide.com Monday morning, right after Glee 's post-Super Bowl episode drew a staggering 26.8 million viewers, making it the most-watched episode of a scripted series in three years. It so happens that Adler was a First Chair All-State show choir member in high school.
When Gwyneth Paltrow's substitute teacher, Holly Holliday, returns to Glee's McKinley High on March 8, she'll be instructing the students in sex education. "All the kids are lost in their sexual knowledge," teases Heather Morris (Brittany).
Expect Holly to enlighten both Brittany — who "still thinks a baby comes from the stork," says Heather — and Finn, who "may finally learn that you actually can't get girls pregnant in a hot tub without intercourse," says Cory Monteith. That stunner could harm Finn's renewed romance with Quinn, who once told Finn that was how she got knocked up...
Wondering why two ambulances were on standby while the cast of Glee was shooting their highly anticipated Super Bowl "Thriller"-themed episode? "We're smashing each other in full-on pads and football gear and in zombie makeup. So, it's a deadly combination," star Chord Overstreet says.
