While fans are raving about the season premiere of “Glee” and the cast have even hinted at some relationship shakeups this time around, it was the upcoming Lady Gaga episode that had the cast talking at Monday’s premiere party in Los Angeles.
“Her music and her influence on pop music right now, it’s so well expressed by ‘Glee.’ The way that that episode goes with Lady Gaga’s music is amazing,” actor Cory Monteith shared with MTV News. “We’re just in the midst of filming it right now and I can’t wait for you to see it. I can tell you I am not going to be wearing the crime scene tape.”
Cast member Amber Riley revealed that the dancing will be pretty sweet in the episode. “We just did Gaga today,” she said. “We did one of the dance numbers today and I had so much fun. I didn’t want it to end.”
Chris Colfer tweeted about getting the chance to wear Gaga’s signature sky-high heels, and pics of him dressed in a dress similar to the one that she wore in her “Bad Romance” video appeared on PerezHilton.com. He admits he’s lucky he didn’t get seriously injured.
“Quite a process today dancing our Lady Gaga number in the 10-inch heels. But thankfully I didn’t injure myself, which is really surprising since I injure myself, like, standing up in rehearsals,” he joked. “So I’m very thankful I didn’t have to go to the ER again.”
And Colfer wasn’t the only fellow who had trouble imitating Gaga. Kevin McHale explained, “The guys do their thing. Not all the guys can pull off Gaga. I can’t give anything away. It’s insane and the outfits are incredible and almost exactly true to the real Gaga outfits. I can’t wait for people to see it.”
Co-star Naya Rivera summed up the Gaga episode this way: “Best episode we’ve ever shot, in my opinion,” she raved. “I’ve had so much fun. Our outfits are nuts. It’s so fun and the songs are so great. We all look great.”
