Our prayers have been answered!

Idina Menzel is in negotiations for a recurring role on Glee!

Idina is being tapped to play the glee club coach of McKinley High's main competition Vocal Adrenaline and she could appear in all 9 remaining episodes!

In other Broadway star/Glee news, Jonathan Groff is also going to have a guest-starring role for five to six episodes as the lead male vocalist of Vocal Adrenaline AND as a potential love interest for Lea Michele's character, Rachel.

We are LOVING all of the Broadway/television crossover action happening!

Anyone else U would like to see on Glee?

  2. 2

    not mariah carey…



  3. 3

    Adam Lambert!! I would love to see Adam have a duet with Chris Colfer (Kurt). I would actually love to see Adam play a Frankie Valley-esque angel ala Grease to Kurt's beauty school drop out but that's mainly because there is a gay man trapped inside my stay at home mom body.



  4. 4

    MY PRAYERS ARE ANSWERED!!!!

  12. 12

    loved glee. loved the whole idea of it. it was fabulous. then they went into repeats. now they are stuck in a boring storyline. anyone else sick of quinn and finn? seriously. now they are ending the season and won't be back until April? WTF?



  13. 13

    I LOVE GLEE AND WICKED!
    Two of my favorite things!



  14. 14

    Bernadette Peters as the crazy former Drama Teacher!



  15. 15

    ariana grande NEEDS to make a cameo on this show!!!!!



  16. 16

    Yea!!!!!! SOOO excited about it. Maybe Amy Adams for Emma's sister or something!



  17. 17

    let's see some bernadette peters!!!



  18. 18

    Neil Patrick Harris!



  19. 19

    I always that Rachel looked like Idina. She could have played her long lost older sister or something.



  20. 20

    Either Bernadette Peters, Bette Midler or Bebe Neuwirth. They need a retired glee director, stage mom/grandma, etc.



  21. 21

    Christine Ebersole!!!!!



  22. 22

    i think michael arden should DEFINITELY be on glee! i think he would make the cutest love interest for kurt. omg i would die.



  23. 23

    Adam Lambert!



  24. 24

    NO! he's suppose to play a future version on rachael because they looks so much alike!



  25. 25

    How about the Entire Spring Awakening cast. there all amazing ( touring cast that is)



  26. 26

    Um, TAYE DIGGS!!!!

    And I second the Christine Ebersole idea. She's incredible.



  27. 27

    With Idina there, I want to see Taye Diggs or anyone from the Original cast of RENT. Adam Pascal, Anthony Rapp. Neil Patrick Harris is awesome too. What about Lea Salonga. She's been a Disney princess voice twice and won every theatre award.



  28. 28

    Adam Lambert is not Broadway…. so not a crossover even though I'd like to see him on Glee…..

    Bailey Hanks!!!!!!! A nice southern girl transfer student would be a nice addition.

    AARON TVEIT!!!!!! Hands down!!!! Yum Yum!

    Or….. Jonathon Groffs real life boy friend Gavin Creel.



  29. 29

    Idina was NOT in Spring Awakening, this would not be a Spring Awakening reunion.

    Mariah Carey was never on Broadway.

    Adam Lambert was never on Broadway.



  30. 30

    my life is complete



  31. 31

    There's a difference between being "cast" and being "in negotiations".



  32. 32

    YAAAAAAY!!!!!

    But what if Ashley Tisdale made a cameo? She started in broadway and even knows abit of musicals from her HSM Years



  33. 33

    I would LOVE to see Bernadette Peters on Glee!



  34. 34

    I really wanna see Bernadette Peters on Glee! I think she'd be amazing!



  35. 35

    I'd love to see Bernadette Peters in Glee! I think she'd be amazing!!!



  36. 36

    I'd love to see Heather Headly….shake things up!



  37. 37

    I LOVE Idina! From RENT to WICKED, she is an amazing talent. I agree though that it would be amazing to have Adam Pascal or Anthony Rapp or both! Their almost done their tour of RENT, so they could do it!



  39. 39

    Lea always reminded me of Idina. Surprised that she is not cast has her older sister or mother.



  40. 40

    I love the Broadway crossover stuff, especially Kristin she was AMAZING. But, NO the the love interest for Rachel. She belongs with PUCK or Finn.



  41. 41

    Anything related to Glee is Great News. I am a Gleek and Proud of it. Best show on TV! I can't wait to Gleek Out tonight.



  42. 42

    Look up "KLTA Perez" on you tube. You will find a fantastic video showing Mario being handed his balls in a bag… Good stuff!



  43. 43

    I couldn't be an happier about this news!!! Idina is amazing!!! And Jonathan Groff…to see him reunited with Lea is amazing….LOVED them both in Spring Awakening…Can't wait for the upcoming episodes :)



  44. 44

    All of the Broadway names have already been listed. I think this would be an amazing way to introduce younger Broadway stars like Adam Chanler-Berat and Jennifer Damiano from Next To Normal.



  45. 45

    FINALLY SOMEONE WHO CAN SING AND ACT UNLIKE THAT OVERRATED FUGLY POS SUBO!!!!!!!!!!!!



  46. 46

    YES! Jon & Lea back together again. Woohoo!



  47. 47

    i LOVE idina!!!!! she amazing!!



  48. 48

    BRYCE RYNESS! (Or GAVIN CREEL, WILL SWENSON or the entire cast of HAIR for that matter!)



  49. 49

    HELLLLLLZZZ YESSSSS!!!!!!!!



  50. 50

    aaaaaahhhhh
    this is so incredible. i was so excited when Kristin Chenowith went on and now Idina Menzel (i was lucky enough to see them together in Wicked and they are incredible)
    LOVING the tv/broadway crossover. a show like glee needs people with who are mega talented as singers, and having acting ability–broadway is the place to go to find that!



  51. 51

    These two women are GORGEOUS!!!



  52. 52

    I dont care. i just want Puck and Rachel!!!!



  53. 53

    Sherie Scott would a pretty awesome Broadway actor to bring on, if she'd be up for it.



  54. 54

    This is so fab-u-lush. I love Glee and Idina. Its almost impossible to find a more perfect match. (All we need is a little more Kristen Chen)

    But they should also consider Anthony Rapp, Adam Pascal, Laura Bell Bundy or Christian Borle.



  55. 55

    Holy crap!! YAY!!!



  56. 56

    OMG THIS IS AMAZING I LOVE IDINA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  57. 57

    IM SO HAPPY IDINIA IS GOING TO BE ON GLEE!!!!
    i saw her in wicked 5 years ago. a-m-a-z-i-n-g.

    i would love to see laura bell bundy on glee!
    OOOOHHH OOOH! i would LOVE if NORBERT LEO BUTZ was on glee! he is my hero.



  58. 58

    STEFANIE FARINA. She'd be perfect.



  59. 59

    KRISTEN BELL would be awesome on gLee :D



  60. 60

    I want to see Queen Latifah on Glee!!!!!! I love this show!!!



  61. 61

    I want to see Taye Diggs as Mercedes' dad!!



  62. 62

    STOKED! i still think that Idina Menzel should play her biological mom, cause that would be EPIC, but I will definitely settle for the glee club coach :) AND to top it all off they get Jonathan Groff to come in as well! Wow!! Its going to be amazing!

    I would be up for Lady Gaga, NPH, John Gallagher Jr, Laura Bell Bundy, Jonathan Bradford Wright, Adam Lambert, or Missy Peregrym joining the cast!!! GOD I LOVE THIS SHOW!!!!

    63

    Bring back Kristen Chenowith! Bernadette Peters or Bebe Newirth would be a great addition!



  64. 64

    PATTI LUPONE!!! The original Evita!!!



  65. 65

    Oh my god, they better get Cheno and Idina together in one episode!!!! They could totally sing "What Is This Feeling?" from Wicked!!



  66. 66

    can't wait, can't wait, can't wait!!!!

  67. ap076 says – reply to this


    67

    That is a good byproduct of Glee.
    I still want The Wicked movie to get made.
    Anybody know anything?



  68. 68

    ADAM LAMBERT! As a performer from another school…total love interest for Kurt!



  69. 69

    AHH! thank the broadway gods!!!! this will be amaaaazing! i'd also love to see sutton foster on the show, in ANY role…just because you know…it's sutton foster!



  70. 70

    If we're going for Broadway power couples, then I vote for supernova Orfeh and her too gorgeous husband, Andy Karl. PEREZ, I'm really surprised you don't show Orfeh more love…..she's very much in the same vein of all the bitches you so worship.



  71. 71

    i think itd be cool if they sang smile by uncle kracker, in a more broadway arrangement, but it won't happen. :)
    and i wouldnt mind if t.swizzle guest starred. cory monteith both said they wanted to do a duet together. :)
