The cast of "Glee" gets comfy in pajamas and soft beds in an upcoming episode. Called "Mattress", it sees the club being tapped to star in a mattress commercial because Rachel thinks that famous people won't get bullied. When the Glee Club is left out of the yearbook because of budget cuts, everyone seems to be relieved that they won't have to suffer the ridicule of years past. Everyone except Rachel, that is, who wants her legacy cemented in print. Meanwhile, Quinn makes it her mission to be in the Cheerios yearbook photo, and Will and Terri's relationship is shaken to its core. "Mattress" will air on December 2 as the second to last episode to air this year. The musical show will officially go on a break after the December 9 episode and return on a new time slot, Tuesday, April 13 at 9/8c. It will be led by the ninth season of "American Idol".

In this Wednesday's episode of Glee (9/8c on Fox), New Directions finally meets some of the competition for sectionals: Jane Adams Academy, led by Grace Hitchens (guest-star Eve). The rapper-actress took a few minutes from her tour in Dubai - her fourth album "Flirt" drops later this year - to dish on her guest stint, including the plot to take down the McKinley High glee club. Working as a glee club coach from a competing reform school, "she gets approached about trying to get rid of the glee club at the school," Eve said. "You see her take these girls to the school and they do this 'Bootylicious' number, which blows the competition away. When you see this number, you're going to die. It's one of those things where you're like, 'How can they make this happen?' but it's also hilarious at the same time." Grace's tactics are far different than those of Will (Matthew Morrison). "For me especially, I come from a harder place" she said. "I'm the teacher of a reform school. I'm used to being very strict." Originally, songstress Whitney Houston was going to guest star in this role. "I would've loved to watch that myself," Eve said. "I think it would've been different in a sense because she's an original diva. She would've brought a whole other energy, which would've been amazing." Unfortunately, Eve won't be singing during the episode. "It was really fun to sit back and watch everyone else sing," she said. "If there was another episode and I could come back, it would be amazing if I could sing." What's her ideal song if she returns to the show? "Sweet Dreams," by The Eurythmics, she said. "That's like my karaoke go-to song." With the news that fellow Glee guest-star Kristin Chenoweth will return to the show, might Eve be lured back as well? "If I'm asked to do it, I definitely would," she said. "It's just a really well-made, smart show." Source Here

While we wait for photos from sectionals--it should come soon--here are a handful of tidbits from the Glee front, specifically about this Wednesday's episode, "Hairography". In case you haven't seen the video clips yesterday, here's the link. And now, more text! Yay! First up, the folks at Entertainment Weekly have another teaser clip from this week's episode, and while it's not a full scene--there's a quick interview with Cory Monteith and Chris Colfer that's pretty hilarious--you can spot the glee kids from Jane Adams Reform School for Girls, headed by Grace Hitchens (guest star Eve), perform "Bootylicious". Here's the link, since we can't embed it. There's a reason why both these two won't be able to have children after the performance, or so they claim. I can only guess it's the three So You Think You Can Dance contestants who are part of the group. To Read More Click Here .
Thanksgiving's just around the corner, but no, Glee won't be off the air like almost everybody else. Thank heavens. I don't think we'd be able to cope with yet another interruption in episodes. Anyway, we've got a couple more sneak peeks from Wednesday night's episode, again courtesy of the folks at E! Online. This episode, by the way, is the one featuring rapper Eve as the head of the glee club for that school for female juvenile delinquents, which happens to be one of the teams New Directions goes up against in sectionals. They also happen to be, possibly, one of the teams to who Sue leaked their set list to. Oh, evil, evil Sue. And that's where video number one starts: Will giving Grace Hitchens a visit and ending up offering her McKinley High's auditorium as rehearsal space. A scrimmage, as he puts it. Source & Preview
The December 2nd episode of Glee revolves around the annual yearbook, but it fails to mention that the Glee club will be appearing in a commercial for a local mattress store, hence the name of the episode. FOX has released promo photos and a synopsis for the episode, which you can view below. Those pajamas look really comfy. I want a pair. THE GLEE CLUB JUMPS FOR JOY ON AN ALL-NEW GLEE ON WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 2, ON FOX When the Glee Club is left out of the yearbook because of budget cuts, everyone seems to be relieved that they won't have to suffer the ridicule of years past. Everyone except Rachel, that is, who wants her legacy cemented in print. Meanwhile, Quinn makes it her mission to be in the Cheerios yearbook photo, and Will and Terri's relationship is shaken to its core in the all-new Mattress episode of GLEE airing Wednesday, Dec. 2 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Egad, it's a Glee episode without Sue Sylvester! We may have missed her one-liners last night, but the absence wasn't glaring, for we still got a handful of comic moments--the idea of Rachel falling for Will just like that is still scary--and a lot of stories moving forward. Who would've thought that an unlikely pairing between Kurt and the love of his life, Finn, would result in Finn finally telling her parents about her pregnancy? We should've seen the fallout from the moment her dad started watching Glenn Beck. Who would've thought that the same pair-up would lead to Puck admitting to Mercedes that he is the father of the baby? Would you believe it's all part of Kurt's plan to have Finn cry on his shoulder pads? Me neither. Glee continued its streak of damn good episodes--in a satisfying way rather than a laugh-out-loud way--thanks to a couple of dramatic scenes between Finn and her mom, who also just found out about the pregnancy, and the one with Quinn's parents, which was quite uncomfortable to watch. There goes my heart again, going out to Quinn--whenever she cries, I have the urge to do so, too. Ouch. Don't worry, next week, we get Sue back, fresh from leaking New Directions' set list... Last night was also chock-full of music: six tracks, already available for download on iTunes, and also on the second Glee CD, which hits stores next month. Here goes the full versions then, including Rachel's "Crush", which benefits from not being interrupted by a freaked out Will. Ready, gleeks? Source & Music Here
The Glee cast wanted to know if we, the TV journalists with our fingers on the pulse of the pop-culture beat, thought this show would connect with a large enough audience to prevent it from tap dancing to an early grave. They seemed genuinely concerned that America wouldn't get what they were doing and would throw a metaphorical slushie in their faces. Cut to almost a year later, where Cory Monteith is holding court at Toronto's only five-star hotel on the final leg of a seemingly endless promotional tour which has taken him from the malls of America to his hometown of Calgary - where he won over crowds at last weekend's Gemini awards - and everywhere in between.

It will be one hair-rising event of " Glee " next week when McKinley High gets into competition with the other Glee Clubs. Concerned that Sue is up to no good, Will pays a visit to an instructor of a competing Glee Club to see what information Sue may be leaking, which leads to the club getting a look at their hair-rising competition. The episode airing November 25 is guest starring Eve as the instructor of the rival club. Among the members of her team are the fourth season contestants of " So You Think You Can Dance ", Katee Shean, Kherington Payne, and Comfort Fedoke. Also in the episode, Kurt gives Rachel a makeover to impress Finn, but he may have ulterior motives. Chris Colfer who plays Kurt said, "There's love triangles right now, but there's soon to be love pentagons and hexagons. I get added on to the [Puck-Quinn-Finn-Rachel] quadrangle. We go full force: When Kurt fell in love with Finn, why he's in love and what he plans on doing. There's a flashback and it's pretty funny." Source & Preview
