Over the past few weeks, various bloggers and co-workers have been raving about the new Fox musical comedy series Glee. Based on what I've been hearing, I had planned to give it a look. However, I made sure I didn't miss the September 30th episode because of two words... Kristin Chenoweth. I've been a fan ever since her role as Olive Snook in the brilliant but canceled Pushing Daisies. She's now on my short list (no pun intended) of performers who when I see their name in the credits, I know they alone will make the movie/TV show worth watching.
In the episode of Glee, Kristin guest starred as April Rhodes, a boozy former classmate of Will's with an awesome set of pipes. As expected, Kristin gave her customary kick-ass performance. Below is the clip of her performing the Carrie Underwood song Last Name.
There are talks that Kristin's role on Glee may be recurring (if the producers of the show haven't signed her up for future episodes, they need to get on it yesterday). Even if this is the last we see of Kristin on Glee, I'll be checking it out again. The show sucked me in from the beginning when members of the glee club launched into Journey's Don't Stop Believing. If you want to check out the tunes featured on Glee, you can visit Glee Songs.
If it couldn't be Tatiana, I'm glad it was Viola - Pretty hilarious to the cutaway of various white ladies clapping at her gratitude for being given a great role as a black woman though
