In preparation for tonight’s episode of Glee, entitled “Theatricality,” be sure to head to iTunes and purchase the two songs Idina will be singing! She peaked at #7 with “I Dreamed a Dream” last week, but I have an inkling that “Poker Face” might crack the Top 5, if not the #1 spot, so make sure you go buy the songs to support her! We shall see what happens! Click the covers below to buy now.
Note: Tracks may not be available on all countries’ iTunes at this time.

Idina returned to Glee as Vocal Adrenaline coach Shelby Corcoran last night, and the big, shocking, astounding, completely inconceivable reveal happened! But I don’t want to spoil it for those who have yet to see it, so here are the bullet points for “Dream On:”
If you live in the US and you missed it, or simply want to watch it again, you can watch “Dream On” online on Hulu. You can also download Idina’s scenes via our media page:
Idina trended once again on Twitter, defying their funky new algorithm. She actually hit the trends two different occasions, nationwide during the east coast broadcast and worldwide during the west coast’s!
Volume 3 of the Glee soundtrack series is now available on iTunes, including Idina’s duets with Lea Michele on last night’s “I Dreamed a Dream” and next week’s “Poker Face.” “I Dreamed a Dream” is presently the #8 iTunes single in the US, marking Idina’s first iTunes Top 10 song. If you haven’t already, head to iTunes to purchase it today to bump her higher. Similarly, if you want to help her chart even higher next week, wait until Tuesday or Wednesday to purchase “Poker Face” to join and boost the masses that will be buying the track after hearing it on Glee. Nothing wrong with a bit of strategery! ;)
More than 450 screencaps from last night’s episode have been added to the gallery, along with an official promo still. Click the thumbnails below to view!
Tomorrow, May 18, marks Idina’s return to Glee! Make sure to set your TiVos and tune in! She has done a few interviews recently to promote her guest spot. Here’s one that was filmed a couple weeks ago for ABC News Radio.
Make sure to read AND watch this great one from today’s USA Today. Click the link to read more.
On tomorrow’s E! News, they will air their own exclusive interview with her, so make sure you watch for that, too! Don’t worry if you miss it, though. We’ll include it in our Glee 1×19 update later this week. And remember, tomorrow Volume 3 of the Glee soundtrack will be released, including 2 of Idina’s songs! Pre-order on iTunes today.
In more news of the exclusive variety, Idina will be giving Idina-Here an interview as well! Created by the fans, for the fans, members of LiveJournal community IdinaMenzelWorship contributed questions more than 2 years ago – yes, 2 years! – before I even started maintaining this site (or I would have asked for contributions here). That just goes to show you how busy she is! Anyway, it should be very enjoyable to read, considering she wasn’t asked how long it took to get green every night or if there’s ever going to be a Wicked movie – we all know the answers to those, right? I’m not sure when the interview will be ready to go, but she’s chipping away at it in what little free time she has these days. It might be days, weeks, or even months, but as soon as it’s complete, I’ll be sharing it! :)
Idina has added a 16th show to her 2010 symphony tour! She will be performing with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra on June 29 at Heinz Hall. Tickets are on sale now! Click to purchase!
In Glee news, Target’s website has posted different previews of the Volume 3 soundtrack than were previously released. Visit the album’s page to hear IDINA singing “I Dreamed a Dream” (rather than yesterday’s Lea-only preview).
And lastly, Idina & Taye attended this week’s American Idol on performance night. I know a number of you spotted them in the background seated behind Ellen DeGeneres, but here’s a nice photo that was taken at the show. Click on it for HQ.
