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.
Is Rachel about to get herself into trouble? Another crack den for Sunshine? More wine coolers? If the original song she writes to sing solo at Glee's Regionals is any indication, she's going to be apologizing for something and soon.
Kathy Griffin and Loretta Devine to judge regionals
Here's a peek at the remorseful refrain for "Get It Right": What can you do when your good isn't good enough/ And all that you touch tumbles down / 'Cause my best intentions / Keep making a mess of things / Just wanna fix it somehow / But how many times will it take / Oh, how many times will it take... for me to get it right?
Wait, what happened to Lauren?
Puck may still have the hots for Zizes, but in this exclusive clip from Tuesday's episode of Glee, he seems to have his sights set on Rachel — or at least on her house.
Sounds like the makings for an epic Glee fiesta. (Also, the episode is titled "Blame It On the Alcohol," they will be singing a Ke$ha song... and there was also this very telling promo.)
Whet your appetites with the clip below:
Now THAT is what Glee should be every week.
After last week's encouragingly strong Valentine's episode, of course last night was a letdown. Like Sam's mouth-to-face ratio, Glee's excellent-to-uneven equation is all out of whack, as well. But halfway through what ultimately turned out to be a plotless hour that did nothing but piss off a bunch of Justin Bieber fans, things took a sudden left turn into Awesome Town for what should be remembered as one of the show's greatest performances ever... as well as the one moment that almost made us forget the episode's two tacky suicide jokes and the sight of Puck in mop-top toupee.
Katy Perry brought her own Grammy to Sunday's award show — her 90-year-old grandmother, who wore Armani and walked with a blinged-out cane (a birthday gift from Katy). The newly married pop star also revealed that her husband, career goofball Russell Brand, is "absolutely a romantic." What's their secret?
Plus: See what Perry thought of Lea Michele's rendition of "Firework" on Glee.

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."
One of the biggest fumbles came before Super Bowl XLV — from Christina Aguilera's performance of the national anthem.
The Grammy winner, 30, botched the lyrics, mistakenly singing "what so proudly we watched, at the twilight's last reaming" instead of "o'er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming." The flub immediately...

Grease Sing-A-Long (Friday, 7/6c, Oxygen)
You can do the hand jive and croon along to "Summer Nights," turning your TV room into a karaoke parlor, as Oxygen kicks off a "Gleek-end" of musical programming with a sing-a-long version of the hit musical movie. While you ask yourself how long it will be before Glee devotes an entire episode to this teen favorite, buckle up for a 12-hour Glee marathon on Saturday, starting at 11/10c in the morning, featuring episodes from the first two seasons (including the tributes to Madonna, Britney Spears and The Rocky Horror Picture Show)...
