The Episode Of Grey's Anatomy You Won't Want To Miss

Or maybe you will. We guess it depends on you tastes.

Creator of Grey's Anatomy, Shonda Rhimes, has confirmed that in the coming season, the show is going to do something its never done before - musical numbers!

Shonda confirmed that a musical episode is on the way for the hit ABC series and even let it slide the kinds of things we should expect from it.

Calling the stunt episode a "little gift to the fans," Shonda reveals that the episode won't be the lavish, Broadway-esque kind you'd have seen on other shows (think Buffy the Vampire Slayer.) No, instead this musical episode will be understated and take advantage of the immense talent in her cast, including Chandra Wilson and Tony winner Sara Ramirez. In fact, though she admits that most of the story is in the early stages, Shonda can confirm that the plot will be "Callie heavy" to make good use of their Broadway diva and to eliminate the need for some characters to sing at all.

Yeah, we can't really see McDreamy and Meredith bursting into a love ballad with an open brain on the table.

Speaking of the song selection, Shonda reveals that fans shouldn't expect to hear her cast belt out big Broadway numbers or anything of the like. In fact, she suggested that some of the songs will be fan favorites associated to the series, though she didn't offer which those might be. In the end, Shonda just hopes to have a lot of fun with this episode. She explained:

"The comparisons to other musical episodes are too great, and we wanted it to be different. Nobody is going to be dancing and singing down the halls; that's not our show. Our show is known for its music. I very much wanted to do something that was musical without being a musical."

It really should be interesting to see how they pull this off and how effective it might actually be. We have a feeling it might not go as well as Shonda plans.

And somewhere off in the distance, in a sensible home in Loz Feliz, Katherine Heigl is laughing a strange and manic laugh, thankful she got out when she did.

    Jumping the shark much? Taking the cue from the success of Glee? Desperate much? Why can't they just stick to what they do best?



  2. 2

    That sounds..horrible :O



  3. 3

    This sounds like such a TERRIBLE idea….



  4. 4

    no way!.. its a lame!.. this season is boring as hell and now they want to sing? PATHETIC.
    yeah… that's why i stopped to watching it.

    Music episodes have been occuring on television shows long before Glee was every thought of. Any Perez, what ever Shonda has planned I'm sure it will blow you away with that negative attitute. She has proven to be an extremely creative script writer and I'm sure she will be just as successful this time. All you haters need to get over it, Grey's rocks and has the ratings to back it up!!! I hope this show is on for YEARS to come!

    oh god this is one of the shows I still watch… please don't kill it with musical bull s#@!

    Kuasma, have you even watched this season?! This season is the best one in years! Granted I'm not thrilled with this idea, but I would hardly call it jumping the shark (which can I point out this show supposedly jumped the shark several times over the years…)



  8. 8

    TERRIBLE TERRIBLE TERRIBLE idea.



  9. 9

    The show has jumped the shark if it's doing a musical number. That is the TELL ALL sign of a show being over. ::sigh:: I'm not surprised with all the crappy shit they've been doing with Christina Yang.

    as if this show couldnt get any worse! a musical episode? really?



  11. 11

    have never ever seen an episode of Grey's



  12. 12

    Well maybe now we know why Katherine Heigl wanted out!!! This is such a big mistake…they must be desperate…and foolish to think this will help.



  13. 13

    Let me jump on the bandwagon: this show has jumped the shark. (Years ago, actually.)

    I don't know about this. I feel that Glee doesn't have any plot to it anymore, and I am starting to think that maybe Grey's is getting tired of having to work on the plot too. I think people tune into shows like this for the story. With Glee you expect to hear music, although I expect a story too. Lately it is getting weak on that, and Grey's haven't been handling their story lines like Arizona leaving for Africa and breaking up with Callie in 2 seconds. Lame.

    ummm, sorry but Scrubs beat you to this a long time ago and I seriously doubt you could top what they did. I love Glee, but this has nothing to do with it lol



  16. 16

    This is a HUGE mistake I hated the reality TV version they did a couple of weeks ago and now a musical!!! BOOOOO!!!!!!! It is almost like they are purposely trying to ruin this show!

    That is the dumbest thing that could ever happen to that show. It's going down the tubes the way it is with this seasons script so why make it worse. Just another show that has done it's time and now it's time to go bye bye. The only episode that is worth while to watch is the finales.
