Glee returns with all new episodes on April 19 and April 25, 2011, according to an April 6, 2011 press release from Fox TV Network. The April 25 episode will be particularly exciting to Gleeks, because it pays homage to Mother Monster herself, Lady Gaga.
The Glee Born this Way episode is a super-sized 90 minute show where New Directions performs Lady Gaga’s smash hit Born This Way. The episode premieres on Tuesday, Aprili 26, 2011 (8:00-9:30 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
Lady Gaga famously introduced Born This Way at the Grammy Awards by arriving in an egg-shaped vessel, carried in by her backup dancers. To see pictures of a video of Lady Gaga’s Grammy appearance, see Lady Gaga talks about Grammys.
In the “Born This Way” episode, Mr. Will Schuester (Matthew Morrison) teaches the glee club a valuable lesson about self-acceptance, by using the music of Lady Gaga to show the importance of embracing your unique qualities. Lauren Zizes (guest star Ashley Fink) and Quinn Fabray (Dianna Agron) go toe-to-toe for the popular prom queen crown. Ms. Emma Pillsbury (Jayma Mays) confronts her obsessive issues, which stand in the way of her relationships. Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) struggles with a life-altering decision.
