PURCHASE GLEE SONGS NOW
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.

GLEE PREMIERE SOIREE
Last night, Idina & Taye attended the soiree for tonight’s Glee premiere along with the rest of the cast and several other guest stars. Several HQ photos have been added to the gallery, thanks to LeaMicheleWeb.org. Click on the thumbnails to view, and don’t forget to watch Glee tonight!
Also be sure to head to iTunes to purchase Idina’s new EP, out today. It contains 3 live tracks, which are available for purchase separately and their quality is incredible! Click below to purchase now.
Finally, Playbill has published a very nice article full of interviews with Broadway stars about Glee, including Idina and her experience on the set. Click here to read it.
A SHOW OF SHOW TUNES?
On a recent airing of his Sirius XM Radio show, “Live on Broadway,” Seth Rudetsky reportedly mentioned that Idina had emailed him, stating her desire to put on a concert of show tunes later this fall. She even asked him for song ideas!
What about you? If you could hear Idina sing any show tune, what would it be? Time to think outside the box – guy song, girl song, ensemble song! Post your dream tunes in the comments. The list might end up in her inbox and you never know – she just might take your request!
Note: This is in no way an official concert announcement of any such concert. Nothing is scheduled at this time, but if/when such a thing comes to a fruition, it will definitely be posted here. For now, this is just for fun.
Note #2: If you don’t want to publically state your choices, you can also email them to me at erin[AT]idina-here.com with “Show Tunes” as your subject. :)
REQUESTS NOW CLOSED! THANK YOU!
