Hit US musical sit-com Glee has announced it will devote a forthcoming episode to songs performed on the hit US musical sit-com Glee.
Series creator and cultural anti-Christ Ryan Murphy told the associated press "Glee is always trying to keep its finger on the pulse of current developments in music and honour the great artists like Britney Spears and Justin Beiber, or the great themes like incestuous love-songs about one's mother. But there's been no greater recent contributor to popular music than Glee, so this episode is a natural move for us."
Fans of the show can expect cast renditions of cast renditions of such classics as "Don't Stop Believin'", "Hit Me (Baby One More Time)", and "Fat-Bottom Girls", as performed by the cast of Glee.
Critic Aly Semigan has hailed the decision, writing in Entertainment Weekly "I'm really looking forward to making my boyfriend suffer through this when he would rather be watching football. And to top it off I plan on withholding sex afterward."
When asked if the Glee-themed episode of Glee would feature any "new" material, Mr Murphy replied "Absolutely not."
Added Murphy: "Look, this is happening, so let's just all get a bottle of vodka and some vicodin and try to get through it."
The episode will premier on UK television in four weeks' time, following an episode of X Factor featuring previous winners of X Factor.
