We’ve already heard Sue Sylvester (the phenomenal Jane Lynch) tackle Madonna’s classic “Vogue.” But now the Cheerios coach is dueting with another blonde pop diva: Olivia Newton-John. The Grease star makes an appearance in next week’s episode of Glee, entitled “Bad Reputation,” and records a new version of her hit “Physical” with Sue. And how does this surprising collaboration come about? Well, Sue is embarrassed when a video of her Jazzercising is leaked and Newton-John comes to her rescue. Says Lynch, “She gives me a call and says ‘Let’s remake the “Physical” video for a new generation. You’ve been humiliated, I was humiliated by my video, so let’s get out there and redeem ourselves.'” Lynch adds that working with the singer was a dream. “We had a little dance rehearsal and then we spent the whole day together,” says the actress. “She’s just a wonderful woman, exactly the way you’d think she’d be.”

What do you think of the new “Physical,” Music Mix-ers? Is it better than the original?
