Hot off the heels of their Golden Globe win, the cast of ‘Glee‘ continued their winning streak on Saturday by earning a Screen Actors Guild award for Outstanding Ensemble in A Comedy Series.
Jane Lynch, who plays villainous cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester, spoke directly to the creator of the series on behalf of the cast saying, “We’d like to thank Ryan Murphy for giving us the parts of a lifetime.”
Backstage we chatted with Lynch about her upcoming musical number (It was recently revealed that she will be singing “Vogue” on the show’s upcoming Madonna tribute episode).
“Well I recorded it already and we’re doing a video, frame for frame of a Madonna video,” said Lynch. Expect to see Sylvester’s Cheerios in tow as Heather Morris (Brittany) and Naya Rivera (Santana) make an appearance in the video, as well as Amber Riley (Mercedes). “We’ve been rehearsing probably for a couple of months for this one,” she added.
But “Vogue” won’t be Lynch’s only singing stint this season. Earlier this month Ryan Murphy told ‘Entertainment Tonight’ that Olivia Newton-John, who will guest star on an upcoming episode, will perform a duet of her 1981 hit ‘Physical’ with Lynch.
As for the show’s Madonna episode, word from Ryan Murphy is that it’s gonna be huge! “It’s got like 10 numbers in it, and the production value is very big,” he said to EW. “We adore her and worship her, so when I’m directing, I’m always like, ‘Do it for Madonna.’”
