IDINA IN ‘ADVANCED TALKS’ TO JOIN GLEE!

IDINA IN ‘ADVANCED TALKS’ TO JOIN GLEE!

Recent speculation that Idina Menzel is headed for the hit Fox series Glee in the spring appears to be true—but according to EW.com, the Tony-winning singer will not be playing the birth mother of Lea Michele’s character, Rachel. Instead, new mom Menzel is in “advanced talks” to play the choir director of Vocal Adrenaline, the arch-rival group of Mr. Shue’s New Directions.

So, let’s make a tally of Broadway vets on Glee: Series regulars Matthew Morrison (South Pacific) and Lea Michele (Spring Awakening) have welcomed guest stars John Lloyd Young (Jersey Boys) and Kristin Chenoweth (Wicked), with Michele’s Spring Awakening co-star Jonathan Groff on tap as a rival singer.

And now Idina, as Jonathan’s coach? It’s almost too much for Broadway musical fans to contemplate. If Glee can get former Wicked co-stars Menzel and Chenoweth to appear in the same episode, the planets will align in a way that may cause the Gershwin Theatre to spontaneously combust. But it’s definitely worth the risk.

Meet Will Schuester’s new rival.

Broadway star Idina Menzel is in negotiations to join Fox’s “Glee” as a recurring.

Menzel, who is expected to appear in all of the remaining nine episodes of the season, will play the coach to glee club Vocal Adrenaline, the McKinley High glee club’s main competition.

Menzel had said she is a big fan of “Glee” and its young star Lea Michele, also a Broadway pro.

Because of Menzel and Michele’s similar musical theater background and strong resemblance, fans had been lobbying for Menzel to appear on the show as Rachel Berry’s (Michele) biological mother.

They’ve got their wish … sort of.

Menzel won a Tony for her role on “Wicked.” Her co-star on the show, Kristin Chenoweth, guest starred on “Glee” earlier this season.

Menzel is the second Broadway name to recur on “Glee” this spring.

Jonathan Groff, who co-starred opposite Michele in the Broadway production of “Spring Awakening,” will be doing a five- to six-episode story arc, playing the lead male vocalist of Vocal Adrenaline and a potential love interest for Rachel Berry.

“Glee,” which chronicles the road of McKinley High’s glee club, a group of misfits led by Spanish teacher Schuester (Matthew Morrison) to the national championships, wraps its fall run Wednesday with the “Sectionals” episode.

Schuester’s biggest nemesis so far has been the coach of the school’s cheerleading squad Sue Sylvester, played by Jane Lynch.

“KINDA SPECIAL” w/ LINDSAY RUSH

“KINDA SPECIAL” w/ LINDSAY RUSH

Up-and-coming singer/songwriter Lindsay Rush has likely hit the radar of most of you visiting this website in the last couple weeks. Lindsay posted a video on her YouTube channel of herself recording a song that producer Eric Bazilian had written with Idina, titled “Kinda Special.” Lindsay was kind enough to sit down “with” me for a few minutes to discuss this song and how it came to be.

How did you come to record “Kinda Special”?
I had been writing and recording a lot with songwriter/musician, Eric Bazilian. He wrote “One of Us” for Joan Osborne. One day he mentioned a song that he had written with Idina, called “Kinda Special.” He played it for me, and said that they never felt like it reached its full potential. He gave me the track to take home to see if I could come up with a way to take it where they thought it should be. After listening to it a lot, I thought it would be a more powerful and unique song if it were about Idin’as new baby, instead of it being a love song. So I wrote mostly new lyrics, and the next day, Eric and I went back into the studio to record the new version. You can see a video of the recording session on YouTube.

Read on to see what else she had to say!
