Ready for this news, Gleeks? It's going to blow your minds!

So ever noticed how much Idina Menzel looks like Lea Michele? If you haven't, you're blind.

Anyway, the creator of Glee, Ryan Murphy, dropped a potential bomb on Gleeks everywhere while he was discussing the upcoming Lady Gaga episode. He revealed that Idina and Lea would be performing a duet, an effing epic duet. He says:

"Lea and Idina Menzel will do an acoustic version of 'Poker Face' that [Lady Gaga] blessed and that she wanted us to do. It's sort of like a stripped-down mother-daughter 'Poker Face' that Lady Gaga was involved in."

Muh, muh MAMA???

Excuse you Ryan? Did you just say mother-daughter? As in, Idina's character is actually the long-lost egg donor who conceived little Miz Lea's character???

Is that what you are telling us? Is it? IS IT???

The answer: possibly!

And for now, that is good enough for us!

Gleeks, thoughts?

    Well it's not a secret since everyone has been suggesting that for months! If the DO do it right…how perfect will that be! Rachel will be torn! Stay with GLEE or go over to Vocal Adreniline!!! Powerful!!!



  2. 2

    I hope that they are mother/daughter. Ever since I saw Spring Awakening on Broadway I compared the two. By the way Idina was horrible in that episode the other night. But I love her anyway.



  3. 3

    um duh, this isn't news.



  4. 4

    this isn't news. didn't they announce this months ago?



  5. 5

    Yes, I noticed! Kinda creeped me out that Mr. Schu was making out with someone that looked so much like Rachel. Very interesting!



  6. 6

    Is she even old enough? I guess they could use make-up.



  7. 7

    I would have liked a SPOILER ALERT PEREZ!



  8. 8

    Well even though the massive Glee fans' suggestions got Idina on the show, when she was first cast, we were told it wouldn't be in the way we expected, so now if she turns out to be the mother, that would be great! I can't wait to see how it all unfolds!!



  9. 9

    it was only expected that it would be added….seriously, the likeness between them is uncanny



  10. 10

    PEREZ, AREN'T YOU THE DUMBASS WHO THOUGHT R-PATZ WAS A DEAD RINGER FOR KURT COBAIN?..YEAH, THOUGHT SO.



  11. 11

    Obviously. I don't even watch Glee and I knew this months ago!!



  12. 12

    YES!!!! I knew it! I was thinking why would Shelby (Idina) want to spy on new directions, cause remember when Jesse and Rachel were kissing and then she was standing there watching?! Well I was thinking Shelby is making jesse get together with her just so Shelby can find out more about Rachel! Not so that she can spy on New Directions cause vocal adrenaline is an awsome show choir! Thats exciting news Idina is so amazing on Glee! LOVE HER!!!!



  13. 13

    well shes certainly believable as her mother - i wouldnt say the resemblance would stop me in my tracks though. Lea actually looks a lot like Penelope Cruz.



  14. 14

    i thought that was the plan all along



  15. 15

    I've known that for a while now, everyone has been talking about it. I thought the first time I read it was on here?



  16. 16

    Lol duh fucktard. This isn't news. This is so old!



  17. 17

    I thought that's what they were going to do when they first said Idina would be on the show because the two look so much alike. However, seeing them side by side in this picture, I don't think they look that much alike. Lea is alot prettier AND can sing better (sorry, I find Idina's voice rather shrill).



  18. 18

    I hope so!! They look so much that Ryan Murphy is going to have to write something in about that. People who aren't Idina are starting to see the uncanny resemblence



  19. 19

    Perez wtf are you talking about? You reported this MONTHS ago that this was already happening. Seriously do your ghost writers ever fact check their posts?



  20. 20

    Lol, sorry Perez, but duh! They wouldn't have, in particular, brought her on if they couldn't swing the long lost mother angle.

    :)

    We knew that one was coming since day 1… I think its a great match. I just hope Idina is forgiving when Lea is cast in the movie of WICKED, because we all know that one is coming too!!!



  23. 23

    omg! i totally called this!



  24. 24

    But in all seriousness, they look nothing alike



  25. 25

    that would be awesome

    hey lea michele can play idina's wicked witch of the west in a movie version of WICKED!

    now all we need is glinda's part…

    c'mon…when is that gonna finally happen



  27. 27

    I herad this like a really long time ago.



  28. 28

    It was NEVER reported that Idina would play Rache'ls mother. It was all just suggestions. When Idina was set to play, Ryan Murphy let out a statement saying that Idina would not play Rachel's mother because it was too expectant. I think he just said it in order to pull our legs.

    It would be sinful if it didn't happen. It's effing destiny. It's like God handed the Glee writing staff a perfect idea for the show on a golden Emmy platter from heaven. Duh.



  30. 30

    YES PLEASE!
