Kate Hudson joins the Glee cast in a recurring role beginning in the season 4 premiere. Hudson will be playing Cassandra July, the dance teacher at NYADA.
She'll also become Rachel's new nemesis and puts a target on her back when Rachel rolls her eyes in response to Cassanda's insults of her fellow students. In fact, Cassanda is like the NYADA version of Sue, a mean-girl teacher who isn't hesitant to put students in their place.
But don't think that Cassandra is jealous of all the "wide-eyed ingenues" coming through her dance class. In fact, she quickly insists that she can out-dance any of them. This causes her to launch into a song and dance mash-up of Lady Gaga's "Americano" and Jennifer Lopez's "Dance Again". Watch her performance below. What do you think, Glee fans? Does Hudson make the grade?
Don't miss the season 4 premiere of Glee on its new night, Thursday, September 13 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on Fox. You can read teasers from the premiere here.
