Glee star Matthew Morrison to release a solo album

Here's hoping Justin Timberlake has enjoyed his time in the spotlight. It seems Matthew Morrison, the star of the hit Fox musical series Glee, is ready to take his place! "Right now, Ive almost finalized a record deal and am going to be working on an album," the former Broadway star, TK, told Access Hollywood. "I would consider it a classier Justin Timberlake album." Morrison, who plays Glee club mentor Will Schuester on the show, said that his sound is "going to be different" than expected, adding that it will "be me and a big orchestra, but also with beats." (He likened it to "Timberlake meets Michael Buble.") The actor will likely incorporate his years of experience on the Broadway stage into the album as well. He has appeared in Footloose, The Rocky Horror Show, Hairspray, South Pacific and The Light in the Piazza, which earned the actor a Tony nomination in 2005 for his role as Fabrizio Nacarelli. Morrison isn't the only Glee star planning a solo album. Lea Michele is also considering one, show creator Ryan Murphy has said.

From 'So You Think You Can Dance' Contestants To 'Glee' Juvenile Delinquents?

Now, if this is true, this is going to be a pretty surreal experience for you So You Think You Can Dance fans. SYTYCDism reports that three of the dancers from SYTYCD's fourth season--Katee Shean, Kherington Payne and Comfort Fedoke--will show up in a future episode of Glee . Now that's one for cross-promotion, huh? Nothing's confirmed yet, but the word is they'll be appearing as "juvees" on episode 13, "Sectionals", which airs December 9. Or, as it obviously implies (and as all of us gleeks know), when New Directions competes in sectionals. Now, as a SYTYCD followed and half-diehard gleek, I'll try to connect the dots. Remember the three schools McKinley High's glee kids will compete against? The school for deaf kids (who'll perform John Lennon's "Imagine") and what Mercedes calls the place for female juvenile delinquents? Well, that must be the place! So if there's anything we can expect from this, it's that that group will have some mean dance moves that should rival anything that Will choreographs. If that is really the case, then we might--again, might--expect the three former SYTYCD contestants on episode 11, "Hairography", which features rapper Eve as an instructor from a rival glee club. I'm still guessing she's heading up the club from those juvee kids, and if my theory holds correct, then we might see these SYTYCD stars on two Glee episodes. Whether it happens or not, it's gotta be a pretty interesting (and I must say amusing) role for these three. And, yes, a good opportunity for cross-promotion, too. So, maybe, when American Idol comes along we can expect Simon Cowell to show up, or Randy Jackson going "yo, yo, yo dawg!" on Artie... Source Here

Glee: So When Will Mr. Shue Find Out About Mrs. Shue? (And What Happens Next?)

There was this little spoilery detail on Glee from Entertainment Weekly's Michael Ausiello that I so did not expect. This is how he put it: "There's a crazy-ass rumor going around that Will will discover Terri's faux baby plot, dump her, and then, in a moment of passion, get her pregnant for real! The really crazy-ass part? Sources confirm that more than half of the rumor is true!" So more than half the rumor is true, huh? Unlike Puck, I attended math class (but forgot half of it anyway) but I remember permutations and all that statistics stuff. So we have the parts: Will discovers the fakery, Will dumps her, and that moment of passion, which should result in an actual pregnancy. I shall shuffle them all together and present to you the probabilities. To Read More Click Here .

'Glee' Cast Touring for Autograph Signing

In promotion of its first record release, the cast of " Glee " will go from store to store to meet fans of the show. Columbia Records and Twentieth Century Fox Television will release "Glee: The Music, Volume 1" on Tuesday, November 3 and the first 400 lucky fans who buy the album will get the chance to get the stars' signature. Once a fan purchases a copy of the CD at one of the locations listed below, he or she will be given a wristband which allows him or her to get on line for the autograph signing. The cast members will only sign the "Glee" CD and allow one item per person. It is not yet confirmed whether all the stars will come out or only several of them. "Glee: The Music, Volume 1" lists the songs which had been featured in the first season. It ranges from Neil Diamond's "Sweet Caroline" to Young MC's "Bust a Move" to Jordin Sparks' "No Air". "Glee", a musical television series airing on Fox every Wednesdays, follows a group of McKinley High School's misfits under the coaching of Will Schuester. The show is taking a break this week, only to come back on November 11 with episode "Wheels". Will encourages the Glee Club to support Artie, and asks each of them to perform in a wheelchair. Meanwhile, Kurt and Rachel compete for a big solo. Time, Date and Venue of Autograph Session: * November 2, 2009 04:00 PM - Roosevelt Field Mall / North Court Lower Level (below food court), Garden City, New York * November 3, 2009 05:30 PM - Borders - The Shops at Columbus Circle, Time Warner Center 10 Columbus Circle, New York, New York * November 4, 2009 06:00 PM - Best Buy @ Garden State Plaza, Paramus NJ, New Jersey * November 7, 2009 04:00 PM - Barnes & Noble @ The Grove, 189 Grove Drive, Los Angeles, California Source Here

Forget the Thanksgiving parade, 'Glee' cast will sing at World Series

They may not be able to sing in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on NBC, but the cast of Fox's "Glee" will get to strut their stuff during the World Series. Fox has confirmed that cast members from its new hit musical comedy "Glee" will sing the national anthem during Game 3 of the World Series, currently scheduled for Oct. 31. That game will be either in Los Angeles or Philadephia, depending on which team ends up in the series against either the Yankees or the Angels. Fox had to get a green light from Major League Baseball to have the cast sing at the game. Networks often use the World Series and other big sporting events to promote their own entertainment shows, but it is unusual to actually have a cast of a show perform during the game. Of course, few probably have the chops to do it. At least we know they'll do better than Roseanne Barr did when she butchered the anthem during a San Diego Padres ballgame. Earlier this week, NBC pulled back an invitation that had been extended to the "Glee" cast to sing during the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, which the network has the rights to air. Source Here

Glee's "Most Serious" Episode Yet: Wheelchairs, Kurt's Dad, and More - Featured

I didn't realize I'm having a Finn moment for the past couple of weeks until today, when I looked at the calendar and realized we'll be waiting for a new Glee episode for three whole weeks--well, two weeks, half a week from the last episode, and half a week towards the new episode. Either that, or my math is faulty. Still, there's still a few things that you might want to know when the show returns on November 11. "Wheels" is touted as one of the best Glee episodes yet. "It gets really serious towards the end of it," Kevin McHale told the Los Angeles Times. "I can't even explain it. You see the heart in some people you might not expect to have a heart." In fact, he calls it the most serious episode of the show yet--although it has one of the funniest bits, too. "You definitely see sides of people that you probably are not expecting," he said. "There are four huge story lines going on, love triangles switching up. And everyone gets in wheelchairs at some point." By that, Artie probably means Puck and Quinn! Well, Puck-Rachel fans, there's nothing to expect. E! Online's Kristin Dos Santos revealed that "Wheels" will feature the preggy cheerleader and the actual dad in some pretty close moments--he pays for her ultrasound bill (thank for your being scrimpy Terri!) and they almost kiss. And, according to Jenna Ushkowitz, we might want to expect the return of the Finn-Rachel story: "Finn definitely has some major decisions to make, and Finn and Quinn aren't exactly on the best of terms." And there are "supercute" romantic scenes between Artie and Tina. Now I did not see that coming. On that episode, the whole glee club goes behind Artie, starting a bake sale and dancing on wheelchairs like crazy because his chances of traveling with them to regionals are in question. (Yes, the official episode synopsis is out. Wait a minute--you're all talking about regionals already?) And then there's the bit between Kurt and Rachel, or as they call it, a "diva-off". With Kurt hinting that he's got an iPod playlist that's dedicated to the wicked wonders of Wicked, we should expect more moments between him and his dad. And Sue showing another one of her soft sides? You mean she still has a soft side? Source Here

Josh Groban Loved His 'Glee' Cameo

Classical singer Josh Groban fit right in on the set of hit musical series Glee - because he was a member of his school's choir. The star was delighted to be asked to film a cameo on the TV show, which chronicles the lives of a group of talented teens, and admits he was part of a similar choral group when he was younger.

'Glee' Sneak Peek: A Post-Christmas Single, The Sectionals Setlist, And A Video We Can't Embed

The first Glee soundtrack hits shelves next week, and turns out, that's not the only one coming up. Well, sure, we know there'll be more soundtracks as the show pushes forward, but not this soon. Billboard reveals that a second Glee album is set for a December 8 release, roughly a month after Glee: The Music Volume 1 hits shelves on November 3. Gleeks can also expect an extra download in the coming weeks: a Christmas single, a remake of Wham's "Last Christmas", is in the works, and that song will not be featured in any of the upcoming episodes. It's expected to hit iTunes in mid-November. And then there's that possible second Glee tour, with a start date pegged for summer next year. And then there's the possibility of solo albums from the Glee cast--the tie-up between Fox and Columbia Records allows for just that, but it's been clarified that it is not a priority at the moment. The article also reveals a few details in upcoming episodes. We all know there'll be an episode that features Madonna's music exclusively--and that, I guess, is different from Dianna Agron singing a Madonna song in episode 10. If you've read Entertainment Weekly's cover story this weekend, we know that that Destiny's Child's "Bootylicious" and John Lennon's "Imagine" will be performed at sectionals, the latter from the deaf school New Directions goes up against. There's also the bit about Kristin Chenoweth returning as April Rhodes. And then there's this episode which will feature all original songs. Glee creator Ryan Murphy gave extra details to Billboard, revealing that the episode will be called "Original Song" and sees Will asking the kids to, well, write their own songs. "[Composer] Diane Warren is going to do two big ballads, and if it works, we'll see what happens," he said. Lea Michele also revealed something from their set list at sectionals. "In the 13th episode, I go from singing a Barbra Streisand song into a Rolling Stones song into a Kelly Clarkson song," she said. I wonder which songs are those? And finally, before we end this thing, here's a link to a video preview from the November 11 episode of Glee --you know, the one with Artie. We can't embed it here, but it sets up the Rachel-Kurt rivalry, all thanks to " Defying Gravity ". And there's a good Mercedes line, too. Like, oh yeah. Source Here

Chance at a Tour

I am not sure if this was put up here already but here is the article about the chance at a Glee Tour This would be amazing! Supposedly after the first season wraps, a Glee music tour could be underway in the spring of 2010! Talks for such a tour are still in the early stages and nothing is 100 percent confirmed, but it's a genius idea. The show has been killing it on iTunes selling tracks from aired episodes and the first soundtrack, on sale November 3, will probably fly off the shelves. Fox Broadcasting president Kevin Reilly has coyly suggested at the future of a tour saying: "Certainly if these kids become stars in their own right, who knows? Live appearances. Albums. There's lots of things that could happen." We would love it and so would the "gleeks!"
