No comment on what you make of the show’s interpretation of your music? No praise for Glee‘s young ensemble cast? And no mention of the pure awesomeness that is Jane Lynch? Grumble, grumble…

Well, maybe Madge is simply going to let the episode speak sing for itself. PopWatchers, how pumped are you to see an hour’s worth of Madonna goodness? And do you think Glee will do justice to the pop star’s catalog, or does the whole tribute run the risk of coming off as hokey?
