Glee Spoilers: Who Will Judge Regionals?

at . Comments

The great news: Glee returns tonight (look for a detailed recap/review of the episode, complete with the latest quotes, music and photos on TV Fanatic, first thing tomorrow morning)!

The bad news: This means the countdown to the June 8 season finale will soon be on.

As fans know, or could easily surmise, this episode will focus on a showdown between New Directions and Vocal Adrenaline at Regionals. And who will be judging that competition?

Entertainment Weekly has the answer: a trio of celebrities that includes Glee favorite Josh Groban (pictured), Olivia Newton-John and Sue Sylvester. Indeed, by that time, Sue will be a national star.

“The theme of Regionals is celebrity judges,” series creator Ryan Murphy told the magazine. “Sue is now a nationwide celebrity. And Olivia and Josh only like choirs that sing their songs, so that’s funny. They wanted to do something that played against what people think about them... to play against type. So we gave them an opportunity. And it’s funny to have Sue as a judge when she doesn’t really know about [music], and she has it out for that darn Glee club.”

Glee Guest Star

The finale starts shooting next week. Star Matthew Morrison teases it as “the best episode I have ever read of the show. It is phenomenal. I was bawling.”

In other words: it's classic Glee. We're so happy this show is back.

Glee Quotes

We met right here. I took this man's hand and we ran down that hallway. Those of you who know me know I'm not in the habit of taking the hands of people I've never met before, but I think that my soul knew something that my body and my mind didn't know yet. It knew that our hands were meant to hold each other, fearlessly and forever. Which is why it's never really felt like I've been getting to know you. It's always felt like I was remembering you from something. As if in every lifetime that you and I have ever lived we've chosen to come back and find each other and fall in love all over again, over and over, for all eternity. And I just feel so lucky that I found you so soon in this lifetime because all I want to do, all I've ever wanted to do, is spend my life loving you. So, Kurt Hummel, my amazing friend, my one true love, will you marry me?


I'm gonna miss all of you. I love you guys.
