'Glee' Exclusive: New details on the crazy upcoming Lady Gaga episode

We already knew that the Glee kids would be tackling Lady Gaga in their back nine episodes, set to begin airing on Fox April 13. But now we actually can tell you which Gaga tunes to get the choral overhaul: “Bad Romance” and “Poker Face.” The latter of the pair will be tackled by Lea Michele’s Rachel. Says creator Ryan Murphy, “Lea does a very stripped-down version of ‘Poker Face.'” Meanwhile, “Romance” sounds like a much more elaborate number, with the glee club actually donning Gaga-esque wardrobe for the performance. “I do know that we’re all different Lady Gagas, and at one point I am the Kermit the Frog Lady Gaga,” says Michele, referring to this crazy ensemble worn by the pop star. “I saw a picture of the Kermit the Frog Lady Gaga with a Post-It on it that said ‘Lea.’ I was like, oh, great. Everyone else has incredible Lady Gaga outfits and I have that one.” And it sounds like producers are making sure the costumes are up to par with the real Gaga’s eccentric wardrobe choices. Says Chris Colfer, who plays Kurt, “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.”

Are you excited, Music Mix-ers? Did the Glee producers pick the right Gaga songs? What would you have chosen?

      • Chandra

        How about Boys Boys Boys by Kurt?

  • eliott256

    They are the 2 songs I would have picked for Glee, I’m so glad they’re doing Bad Romance as a massive number. My god, I’m just going to die with a combination of gleegasming and gaygasming

  • Jonathan F.

    The too most obvious ones, yay.

    • Kel

      Exactly. But I’ll still tune in! I love “Bad Romance” and LG!! :)

  • jig

    I’ve changed my mind…Kurt should sing Disco Stick to Finn…

    • Becky

      That would be sooo funny! I’d love it!!!

    • Margo

      from your fingertips to the GLEE gods’ ears.

    • aaron

      i would absolutely die!!! that is a great idea. i would love to see that. or even sing it to puck

  • Ash

    I’m so excited!!! I love all of Glee’s covers so hopefully these will be just as amazing!

  • Fisher

    I’m a little worried but they’ve done great in the past with songs I didn’t think they could cover so…I’ll just wait and see.

  • Becky

    I’m with everyone else. These are the obvious choices.

    Eh Eh would have been awesome, good group song. Paparazzi. Telephone!

    • Maureen

      I love Eh Eh! That would have been a great one to cover! :)

  • Menchy

    I had my fingers crossed for Summerboy, but I figured they wouldn’t. I’m assuming Rachel is doing the piano version of Pokerface. Which is great. Very excited.

  • J

    Come on you write about her enough… LEA, no H. I don’t care what she sings, as long as sings.

  • Generation Gossip

    This is going to be wonderful!!! I can’t wait to see what they have in store

    Lea is a fabulous singer, but can no one else get a song in the cast to themselves? Jesus.

    • PO

      What are you talking about others get songs. We don’t know the whole set list for the show.They may even get songs in this episode just not a gaga song.

      Get over it. At what point are people going to stop crabbing about who gets what song. Don’t like it, stop watching.

    • Matthew Thomas

      Seriously. Its supposed to be about the Glee club yet its Rachel who gets most of the songs and screentime. And as far as singing goes i think both Chris Colfer and Amber Riley have stronger and more adaptable voices. Lea Michele sounds the same in every song she sings which can get tiring. She also has a tendency to be much louder than other singer which kind of works against the song in duets.

  • Lacy

    This is going to be so awesome!!! First Madonna and now her heir apparent. GaGaLoo is the new Queen of Everything!!

  • ^-^

    Her name is spelled LEA not Leah

  • Joe


  • KayKay

    Yes Joe, another post. and there are 18 people ahead of you who are happy about it and only one who isn’t so shut up!
