Every week, ETonline selects a scene that is so magical, it demands watching, and re-watching, from fans and non-fans alike. This week, that honor goes to Glee!
In Thursday’s episode, titled Swan Song, Rachel Berry was gifted one of 10 Golden Tickets to perform at NYADA’s elite Winter Showcase and the audience was gifted with a pair of performances that were richer than Willy Wonka’s most decadent delights.
While Lea Michele’s once-in-a-lifetime talent has never been in question, it’s felt like eons since Glee focused its lens on Lea, and just let the camera roll. The chills begun quickly into her first song, Being Good Isn’t Good Enough by Barbra Streisand, and had developed into full body goosebumps by the time she hit Holy Night as an encore.
The power of Glee has always stemmed directly from tapping into the audience’s veins and filling them with its unique blend of camp and heart, but last night, we were fed pure, unfiltered talent and I found myself joining in the NYADA audience’s standing ovation when all was said and done.
Kate Hudson is back on Glee tonight, as hardcore dance instructor Cassandra July to Lea Michele‘s Rachel Berry! On the episode, titled “Swan Song,” Rachel’s newfound confidence in class sparks Cassandra to challenge her to a dance-off. The two battle it out, singing “All that Jazz” from the musical Chicago, and while their characters might be engaging in some friendly dance-combat on-screen, Hudson revealed to InStyle.com that off-screen, it’s all fun. “Lea and I have a great time together! It’s fun when we get to do our numbers,” Hudson told InStyle.com at the Smart Shade Mousse Makeup Launch in New York. “She has such a talented voice—it’s pretty amazing. Every time I hear her sing I’m like, ‘What a beautiful gift she has.’”
Lea Michele and Diane Kruger showed off two different versions of red carpet glamour as they partied at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s celebration of the 2013 Golden Globe Awards Season in LA Thursday evening
Awards season may not be upon us just yet, but Lea Michele and Diane Kruger gave us a taste of what’s to come – when it comes to seriously exciting red carpet dressing – as they attended a Golden Globe Awards Season 2013 kick-off party in LA last night.
Diane flaunted her abs in a fashion-forward black cropped blouse and pouf skirt-with-pockets combo from the Rochas Spring 2013 collection, which she teamed with black-and-white Chanel bow-detail ankle boots and straight, loose locks for a look that was elegant yet edgy at the same time.
Meanwhile, Lea went the glamour girl route in a Valentino dress from spring’s catwalks. Featuring a plunge neck and thigh-high slit, Lea accessorised her wrap-detail blush gown with open back design with drop earrings, an embellished clutch and strappy sandals and finished off the look with a sexy smoky eye and elegant updo.
The two actresses were joined by Glee’s Chris Colfer, Emily Mortimer, James Van Der Beek, John Krasinski, Lucy Punch and Olvia Munn at the event.
Two totally different looks and two totally gorgeous red carpet hits. Do you agree?
Glee’s megawatt diva dishes on her new album, tattoo addiction and her hot Canadian man
With Victoria, B.C., heartthrob Cory Monteith as her Glee co-star and beau (magnetic couple: check) and an album in the works (multi-platform career: check), Lea Michele is well on her way to icon status. Dawnridge, the Beverly Hills estate built by the late set designer and interior decorator Tony Duquette, was the perfect backdrop on which to shoot our burgeoning Broadway-turned-Hollywood starlet. Known for interiors that appeared luxe—he painted plaster to look like leather and marble—Duquette was a master of illusion. Half a century ago, Hollywood royalty from Mary Pickford to Doris Duke revelled in the showy estate’s faux yet magnificent halls. Duquette was Liza Minnelli’s godfather, and when it comes to multi-talented performers accustomed to OTT sets, there couldn’t be a more apt lurking spirit for our star: this generation’s non-conformist beauty with a big voice. — Emily Ramshaw (source)

Lea Michele is making good on her promise.
Less than a month after announcing she would soon be working on her debut album, the Glee gal was doing just that over the weekend.
“At the studio right now at my first recording session for MY SOLO ALBUM!!” she tweeted on Friday. “I’m so happy and can’t wait for you all to hear this record!!”
What’s more, Michele later revealed that none other than Demi Lovato was right next door, where the X Factor judge was laying down some tracks of her own.
“She’s so sweet & just gave me such great motivation!” the 26-year-old star told her Twitter followers.
Obviously, seeing how Michele continued working on Saturday as well.
“Back in the studio today for more fun recording!” she tweeted.
Meanwhile, on Monday, Michele happily shot down rumors that she is pregnant.
In other words, the album is her only baby right now.
