The Cast of 'Glee' Does Madonna: A SheWired Mash-Up

The Cast of 'Glee' Does Madonna: A SheWired Mash-Up

Madonna has given Glee the rights to use all of her music -- free of charge. What's more gay than that? Meanwhile, the show's creator Ryan Murphy has an-all Madge episode slated for next season. SheWired's Lesley Goldberg devised a list of songs she'd like to see the cast perform. How about out lesbian Jane Lynch's Sue Sylvester belting out "Burning Up," or Lea Michele's Rachel crooning "Crazy for You?"

"Papa Don't Preach." "Express Yourself." "Burning Up." "Crazy for You." "Holiday."

All of the above are not only great Madonna songs, but now they're also clear to be used - free of charge - on Fox's hit musical dramadey Glee. The Material Girl, according to Entertainment Weekly, has given the rights to her entire catalog to the show.

But don't 'Gleek'-out just yet, there's more: Series creator Ryan Murphy has an all-Madonna episode is in the works for next year!

Following news earlier this week that Joss Whedon will direct an episode, it's time for another SheWired mash-up! Here are 5 Madonna songs we'd love to see on that all-Madge episode:

5. Rachel (Lea Michele) singing "Crazy for You" to Finn (Cory Monteith). Maybe when and if Quinn (Dianna Agron) ever fesses up that Finn isn't her baby daddy, we can finally see Glee diva Rachel get her man.

But in the meantime, it's really fun watching her pine from afar -- and nearby.

4. Quinn going head-to-head with the very not pregnant Terri Schuester in a scene singing "Papa Don't Preach" and throwing a very big wrench into Terri's plan to provide Mr. S with a baby of his not-so-very-own.



3. Jane Lynch's hilarious Coach Sue Sylvester singing anything. To a woman.

"Burning Up" would be brilliant were she to sing it to anyone, especially our favorite guidance counselor/germaphobe Emma, who is completely repulsed by the way Coach Sue "C's it."

2. Amber Riley's Mercedes Jones belting out "Hollywood" when Mr. Schuester's glee kids win sectionals and head toward regionals. Will success go to the team's head?

I hope not, but it'd make for some fun TV.


1. Chris Colfer's "gay kid" Kurt Hummel taking center stage with "Express Yourself." How fitting for the character who, when the glee club was divided by gender's by Coach Sylvester, said his allegiance was always with the ladies.

He's had a not-so-secret crush on Finn since the pilot, and it'd be just awesome to see him in the spotlight acting on his feelings.



So which Madonna song would you like to see featured on Glee and how?
