Rachel Berry just choked at her NYADA auditions. She should be freaking out, right?
Instead, Glee's leading lady has found a new lease on life, discovering what her new dreams could be. Oddly, a calm Rachel (Lea Michele) is scarier than a freaked-out one, which leads us to believe...
Glee, Lea Michele
Still floored that Rachel botched her big audition in this week's episode? (Its title, "Choke," was kind of a giveaway...) Freaking out that only a few episodes stand between you and the McKinley High graduation? You're not alone. At a Tuesday Glee panel, the show's cast and crew explained why hope is not lost for Rachel and teased what's to come before G-Day.
You will need tissues.
Glee, Lea Michele
So that's why the episode was called "Choke."
Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) did just that on Tuesday's Glee when she completely messed up the lyrics to "Don't Rain on My Parade" not once, but twice during her much-anticipated audition for NYADA. Instead of belting her heart out to the Funny Girl classic, as she did when she gave a triumphant performance of the song at sectionals in Season 1, she flubbed the lines and then...

Keep the Kleenex nearby, gleeks. Tuesday's new episode of Glee is the start of the long goodbye for McKinley's seniors.
With just weeks until graduation, everyone's got the future on their minds. Rachel (Lea Michele) and Finn (Cory Monteith) may have decided to make New York their next step, but there's a lot more uncertainty for the rest of the gang. Take Kurt (Chris Colfer) and Blaine (Darren Criss), who have yet to discuss the idea of a long-distance relationship, and Quinn (Dianna Agron), whose paralysis may or may not be permanent. Some of the adults aren't exactly prepared to let go either.

Glee's highly anticipated tribute to the late Whitney Houston airs Tuesday, and based on the preview below, it is sure to be an emotional episode.

Between all the pointy collars, gold chains, falsetto singing and one-piece jumpsuits, three members of New Directions got some clarity about what to do with their lives after they graduate from McKinley.
On Glee, a week of disco will do that for ya.
"I've waited five years for this."
Chill, Gleeks! It hasn't been that long since Glee's winter season finale -- which saw Rachel (Lea Michele) and Finn (Cory Monteith) ready to walk down the aisle and Quinn (Dianna Agron) about to get hit by a truck -- it just feels that way. (The above quote, by the way, is a line spoken by Puck. Of course.)

The good news is Glee returns with eight new episodes beginning Tuesday, April 10 at 8/7c on Fox. As the seniors of New Directions inch closer to graduation (hello, senior ditch day!), the club will also welcome Blaine's older brother Cooper...
Ivy's famous Broadway mom will make her debut in Monday's episode of Smash — much to her overshadowed daughter's dismay -- and it looks like she's also reserved tickets to opening night.
Bernadette Peters, who plays Mama Rose, er, Leigh Conroy, tells TVGuide.com that she'll return to the set of Smash next week to film the season finale. Is that because she's attending Ivy's big night as Marilyn? "I'm in the finale. I come to see my daughter, yes," Peters says, coyly. (No word on whether it's a conciliatory visit because, we suspect, Karen winds up clinching the role.)
We talked to Peters about her role on Smash, Karen's lack of desperation (shouldn't she be wanting that part a whole lot more?) and the perilous life of a theater performer...
Whitney Houston, Lea Michele
Glee is filming a Whitney Houston-themed tribute episode, according to E! Online.
The upcoming episode, which is said to feature eight songs by the late Houston, won't be a straight-up tribute like past Madonna and Michael Jackson-themed episodes. Instead, the songs will represent the hard time Glee's graduating seniors are having with moving on.
On Tuesday's episode of Glee, Mr. Schue's whiteboard lesson du jour was WWMJD, or "What would Michael Jackson do?" And while there was no shortage of attention paid to the King of Pop — the gang sang no less than 9 numbers, which seems like a record -- the episode's real theme was all about what lies ahead for Glee's graduating class. The G-word has been a scary one for many of the show's fans ever since series boss Ryan Murphy first revealed — and then retracted — the idea that McKinley High seniors might not be...
