The Glee star has covered a slew of the original Funny Girl's songs, played Fanny Brice on Glee, is slated to take on Babs' iconic role in Funny Girl on Broadway, and the list goes on and on!

So, of course, it's only natural for Lea to include the time she finally met her idol in her new book, Brunette Ambition, since Barbra means a great deal to her.

Every Glee-Tail: Curtain Up!

Hello, gorgeous!

It's the moment Gleeks have been waiting for ever since Rachel Berry strutted out during Sectionals and belted out her now signature song, Don’t Rain On My Parade in the first season. Rachel Berry taking on the role of Fanny Brice has always been end game, but oh, how satisfying to finally be at this place!

In truth, since the original cast's graduation, it’s been a roller coaster ride watching Glee; the momentum with stories and plots have been ferociously up and down. But while this episode had more than one plothole glaring viewers in the face (WHERE’S BRITTANY???), it was the first episode since perhaps season three that felt perfectly like a season one episode. It made you cry, it made you laugh, and it made you cheer – you may have even gorged on the last of you Easter candy to get through all your feelings and then stood up in your living room to give a standing ovation to one miss Rachel Berry!

Oh, that was just us? That’s cool; we’re owning it.

But let’s go ahead and talk more about what actually happened in this episode, shall we?!

lea michele fanny brice perfect role

She's already gearing up to play the iconic Fanny Brice in Glee, so why not just have Lea Michele play Fanny on Broadway?!

Seriously, who else could be better for the role? Aside from the legendary Barbra Streisand of course!

Lea first showed off her AH-Mazing chops when she sang Don't Rain On My Parade on Glee and the whole Fanny Brice snowball effect just made it's way from that!

Plus, the Glee actress does have some Broadway experience up her sleeve, so playing an iconic role in Funny Girl would obviously be a walk in the park for her!
