Tomorrow night, Glee will dedicate an entire episode to Madonna. We absolutely can't wait, especially after hearing from the Material Girl herself about it. But while we'll cover that installment in-depth right after it airs - updating our Glee music and quotes section accordingly; and penning a detailed recap/review - let's look even further ahead for a few moments. Later this season, the Fox hit will focus on another iconic singer for a full hour: the cast will go all out for a series of Lady Gaga interpretations. Said creator Ryan Murphy about one upcoming number: "Lea and Idina Menzel will do an acoustic version of Poker Face... It's sort of like a stripped-down mother-daughter Poker Face that Lady Gaga was involved in." Yes, he said "mother-daughter."

They're behind-the-scenes shots of Chris Colfer and Jenna Ushkowitz getting their Gaga costumes on... Source & More Photos

How Neil Patrick Harris will look like on "Glee" has been revealed in two stills released via Access Hollywood. As the guest star of May 18 episode, Harris will play Bryan Adam, a former rival of Matthew Morrison's Will Schuester who is also an anti-arts-funding board member at McKinley High. The episode is called "Dream On" but the synopsis has not been released. Producer Brian Falchuk, however, shed a little light on how the actor is doing in the episode. He said, "He was delightful, he was easy, he was all the things you wanted him to be. ...When we were writing the character, we were like, 'Oh my God, what if for some reason, Neil ...can't do it? No one else can play this character; we'll have to rewrite the whole episode!' " Co-producer Ian Brennan added, "I'm really excited to see the cut of that episode, because I think it's gonna be really, really good and really funny." The producers are open to the idea for Harris' character to return again in future episodes. Source & Photo

Madonna turned down a cameo in an upcoming episode of " Glee " dedicated to the Queen of Pop - because she has never heard of the TV show. Producers of the hit show, which chronicles the lives and loves of a group of talented teens, were thrilled when they received word the "Material Girl" 's team had given them the OK to use her back catalogue in an episode to air in America next week. But the permission didn't come from the pop superstar directly - and now it emerges she refused to make a guest appearance on the programme. A source tells Popeater.com, "Madonna doesn't have a TV and has no idea what 'Glee' is. The show (producers) did ask her if she wanted to make an appearance in the much-hyped Madonna episode." "She said, 'No thanks', and to be honest she would rather they sing an Elton John song than butcher one of hers." Source Here

Next week's Madonna-centric episode of Glee brings out a different side of Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch) as we learn she's a huge fan of the pop diva. "We find out her parents were famous Nazi hunters and she's very insecure about her hair," Lynch tells us. "She actually emulated Madonna so much as a kid that she bleached her hair platinum blond and it all fell out. She's been forced to wear short hair ever since, so she's actually pretty jealous of Will Schuester's illustrious locks." After Will makes a comment about Sue's short hair, Mercedes (Amber Riley) and Kurt (Chris Colfer) ease her pain by giving her a makeover, which leads to a re-enactment of the "Vogue" video.
