LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- “Glee” has featured the hits of some of music’s biggest stars, including Rihanna, Amy Winehouse and Kanye West. And now, Madonna will get an entire episode devoted to her music.
According to Entertainment Weekly, which features “Glee” stars Matthew Morrison, Lea Michele and Cory Monteith on its new cover, Madonna has given the show the rights to her entire catalogue of music and the FOX hit is planning an all-Madonna episode.
Dianna Agron, who plays “Glee’s” scheming pregnant cheerleader, Quinn Fabray, told the Los Angeles Times on Wednesday that she will be singing a one of the pop star’s classic jams.
“There’s a Madonna song coming up in episode 10,” she told the paper. “You get this news that you’re gonna sing all these songs that you grew up listening to and it’s amazing!”
In more “Glee” news, Matthew Morrison, who plays glee club leader Will Schuester, spoke to Access’ Billy Bush for “The Billy Bush Show,” where he reveled, that in addition to his extensive work on Broadway, he has his own history in the world of pop music.
“I’ve actually been in six boy bands, two of them were real, four of them were fake for like spoofs or for commercials,” he explained.
Some of Matthew’s boy band credits include a brief stint in the boy band LMNT and also a spoof boy band called Fresh Step, which appeared in recurring segments on the “The Late Show with David Letterman.”
But when the “Glee” gang performs at Game 3 of the World Series on October 31, Matthew said there would be nothing spoof about it.
“I would think so,” he said when asked if they would perform live. “I don’t want to do the national anthem taped.”
On Wednesday’s episode, Matt will put his musical spin on Young MC’s “Bust A Move” and Sisqo’s “Thong Song.”
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, last month, FOX announced that musical dramedy series would receive a full season pick up for 22 episodes.
