April 26 is going to be the Gleekiest night on television when Glee goes super-sized for a special 90-minute episode that “pays homage to Mother Monster herself, Lady Gaga” by performing “Born This Way,” Fox announced today via press release. (Not mentioned by Fox: How the network, no doubt, hopes the super-sized episode will totally upstage the premiere of The Voice on NBC).
New Directions will only perform Gaga’s just-released single, a source tells EW. But Gaga will still be felt throughout the episode as it is “more about her message.” Translation: heavy issue, right ahead! Just peek at what Fox issued today:
Zizes vs. Fabray for prom queen?! Um, yes, please.
Strap in, Gleeks, it’s going to be a long night.
