Entertainment Weekly is reporting that the cast of Fox mega-hit Glee are gearing up for a Lady Gaga inspired episode in the second half of this season, featuring performances of “Bad Romance” and “Poker Face.”
Leah Michele, who plays the precocious and self-involved Rachel Berry, is working on a “stripped down version” of “Poker Face”, while the entire Glee club will tackle an over-the-top “Bad Romance” – costumes and all.
“I do know that we’re all different Lady Gagas, and at one point I am the Kermit the Frog Lady Gaga,” says Michele. “I saw a picture of the Kermit the Frog Lady Gaga with a Post-It on it that said ‘Leah.’ I was like, oh, great. Everyone else has incredible Lady Gaga outfits and I have that one.”
Chris Colfer, who plays token-gay Kurt, says, “The outfits are gonna be incredible. All the costumes are outrageous and legit. I actually went to the tailor this morning who makes the real Gaga outfits. They’re going all-out.”
The highly anticipated Glee come-back show will premiere on April 13. Other Glee highlights to look forward to include a Madonna episode and a guest appearance by Broadway superstar Idina Menzel. Until then, Glee fans will just have to get by with this newly released trailer.
