After a very secret ceremony with no photos, we've been dying for any little detail!

Such a nice, inspirational message here!
Check out the just-released music video for the latest single by Charice, called One Day, which was written by Nick Jonas and features a variety of the singer's fans, who won trips to El Lay to be a part of filming (above)!
Well, that certainly adds a layer of authenticity to the track!
We love it!
Well done, gurl! Keep it up!
We won't lie to you - we had our issues with the season finale of Glee. Don't get us wrong, there were some wonderful, memorable show moments, but if we're being honest, we felt like the whole episode was rushed, with some story lines too easily wrapped up and others left out to dry with no indication of a resolution.
That's why we were pleased to hear from Brad Falchuck, one of the creators of the show and the writer/director of the episode, who explained in more detail how the episode was constructed and why certain plots played out like they did. He reveals that the episode - which coincidentally was 20 minutes longer in the director's cut (DVD EXTRA PLEASE!!!!) - is just the starting point to next season, which he's promising will be the "best season yet." But first, the finale…
Ok, huge qualm #1 - Quinn cutting her hair. We were under the assumption going into the episode that she had some diabolical, Sue Sylvester-esque scheme to sabotage the team's chances at winning Nationals, thus setting her up to be the baddie for next season (and giving her character some development.) So…why didn't that happen? Brad suggests we were looking at it all wrong. He explains:
"[Her anger over her breakup with Finn] was all in her hair, man. It really was. All the bad juju was in her hair and she cut it all off and everything got better. It wasn’t that she got over it all but I think she’s just grown up. Every culture has a ritual like that where you make some sort of physical change and it transforms you inside too."
Ummm, okay. If you say so! (We like our scenario better.)
Brad then went on to talk about why the kids lost at Nationals, and this explanation we liked and agreed with. He explained:
"Yeah. They’re not ready yet. I think there’s something about them winning that deflates things oddly. We knew what was going to happen. It’s not even that they lost but they didn’t even make that top 10. That’s how unprepared they were. That’s how unfocused they were. I kinda liked that. To me, if they make it to the top 10 after they’re so clearly not focused, they’re clearly not invested because they all have other things going on — it would have been a little disingenuous."
Agreed! When you're traveling to a national competition and you wait to write your songs until the day before, you deserve to lose. It's like a kid getting a 200 on their SATs and saying, "But wait! I took a practice test on the way over!" Please!
While getting some clarification on the finale was great, what we found more interesting was Brad's thoughts on season three and who may or may not make it to season four. Click the jump to check out some HIGHlights from the rest of his interview to see what we mean:
Oh em Gleek!
We can't believe that the last episode of the season is almost upon us!
Feast your ears on the brand new tunes featured in the upcoming second season finale of Glee, most notably our personal favorite, a mash-up of New York, New York and Madonna's I Love New York, sung by the New Directions crew (above)!
And check out Rachel and Kurt belting out For Good from the musical Wicked; a competing show choir's rendition of Usher's Yeah!; Puck, Artie, Sam, and Mike Chang singing Bella Notte; Sunshine Corazon performing the original song As Long As You're There; and Mr. Schue performing Still Got Tonight, from Matthew Morrison's debut album…AFTER THE JUMP!
The countdown has begun! The final episodes of this season of Glee are upon us, so we must savor every precious moment we have with our favorite losers from Lima, OH.
Next week, its a BIG week, as the episode, inspired by Lady GaGa's Born This Way, is 90 freakin' minutes long and is riddled with amazing music. Two words:
Barbara Streisand! Wooo!
Check out the video (above) to see what's coming next week on Glee!
P.S. - Last night was a little lackluster, huh? What's with Charice coming back for one song and then totally disappearing again. We're not okay with that!
Finally! Where have you been, girl? You show up the first episode and then disappear for fifteen more?! What game are you playing at?
Eh, it doesn't matter. The important thing is that you're back and you're back with a VENGEANCE!
Check out this sneak peek of Charice's return to Glee next week and hear a bit of her solo, All By Myself! (above)
You will be floored! No one belts out a Celine Dion song quite like Charice!!!
P.S. - Ashley Fink, we love you girl!
So far…we're impressed.
Next week, Glee returns with an all-new episode, but then the week after that, you Gleeks get to enjoy an uber-exciting, extra-long episode inspired by the Lady GaGa anthem, Born This Way.
From that episode, we've got a bunch of newly released images in the gallery (below), including one of a distraught Rachel Berry (WHY???), a footloose Finn Hudson, and stylin' Kurt Hummel! (Wooork!)
And for your listening pleasure, we have snippets to share of songs from next week's episode, Night of Neglect. Have a listen to the video (above) to hear Jenna Ushkowitz cover Lykke Li, Amber Riley belt out Aretha Franklin, Gwyneth Paltrow SURPRISE us with a lovely rendition of Adele's Turning Tables, and finally the return of Charice, giving Celine Dion a run for her money!
