Note to self: Do not mess with a diva when she’s down.
We all know that Glee’s Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) is the brightest star in a galaxy of mediocrity, natch. But what happens when Rachel starts to doubt how bright she truly shines? Answer: She has a full-on, don’t bother me, betch-I-will-seriously-cut-you type of breakdown.
Because we adore you (and we want to prepare you for all the Funny Girl chaos that’s ahead!), we at E! Online have snagged fans an exclusive first look at tonight’s all-new episode, “Opening Night.” At this point, we’d say that you could send us “Thank you” flowers, but at this point, all gifts of appreciation should be sent to Rachel ASAP!
Glee tackles a ’90s favorite in this Tuesday’s episode, and we have an exclusive first listen of Rachel Berry’s rendition of The Cardigans’ “Lovefool.” Lea Michele re-creates the classic tune in the big Rachel-centric episode, “Opening Night,” though we doubt she belts it out in the middle of her Broadway debut in Funny Girl. In addition to her New York City gang of Gleeks, she has special guests in town for opening night, including Mr. Schue, Sue, Santana, Tina, and more. Though superstar Rachel tackles this track solo, we wouldn’t be surprised to see some pals singing or dancing backup when the episode airs. Listen to the exclusive track below and feel the ’90s nostalgia wash over you. And if that’s not enough to satisfy your Glee love, check out even more at the official music site.

It’s safe to say that Glee‘s Rachel (Lea Michele) and Blaine (Darren Criss) both enjoy a nice Broadway show tune. The pair get to pay homage Tuesday night to Stephen Sondheim, one of the masters of musical theater, whose work is highlighted on the latest episode of Glee, airing at 8 p.m. on Fox. In this exclusive clip, Rachel and Blaine perform “Broadway Baby” from Sondheim’s Follies for NYADA’s Carmen Tibideaux (guest star Whoopi Goldberg) at their mid-winter critique. Watch below.
Raise your hand if you’d so watch a Glee spinoff that was a Darren Criss-hosted game show.
Both of your hands should be in the air right now…especially after watching this exclusive video below, featuring Criss playing “Broadway Baby Brain Busters: Glee Edition” with his costars Lea Michele and Chris Colfer.
The Fox hit’s stars are hilariously grilled by Criss on their knowledge on all things Broadway and let’s just say we’d be totally fine with Blaine becoming a game show host now that he’s situated in NYC. (As long as he can be a singing host, of course!)
So who won the reigning title of the biggest Broadway Baby: “The wickedly talented” (Oh hey, Adele Dazeem shoutout!) Michele or the “unstoppable” Colfer? Watch our exclusive clip to find out!
Pounding 42nd Street to be in a show?
That pretty much sums up the current journeys of Glee‘s musical-theater students Rachel and Blaine, who’ll team up to deliver that lyric from Sondheim’s “Broadway Baby” in next Tuesday’s installment of Fox’s musical dramedy (8/7c on Fox).
In the following exclusive video, stars Lea Michele and Darren Criss discuss what it means to them to sing a classic show tune together, preview the return of Whoopi Goldberg as NYADA’s Madame Tibideaux and tease a second (solo) number that Criss will deliver during the hour.
