Glee Spoilers: Who Will Judge Regionals?

by 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

You know, a great big fat person once stood on this stage and told a group of a dozen or so nerds in hideous disco outfits that glee, by its very definition, is about opening yourself up to joy. Now it's no secret that for a long time I thought that was a load of hooey. As far as I could see the glee club was nothing but a place where a bunch of cowardly losers go to sing their troubles away and delude themselves into thinking that they live in a world that cares one iota about their hopes and dreams, totally divorced from the harsh reality that in the real world there's not much more to hope for than disappointment, heartbreak, and failure. And you know what. I was exactly right. Thats exactly what glee club is. But I was wrong about the cowardly part. What I finally realized, now that I'm well into my late thirties, it takes a lot of bravery to look around you and see the world not as it is but as it should be. A world where the quarterback becomes best friends with the gay kid, and the girl with the big nose ends up on Broadway. Finding the courage to open up your heart and sing about it. That's what glee club is. And for the longest time I thought that was silly, and now I think it's just about the bravest thing that anyone could do.

Sue

[to Finn] You know, I don't really know what's going to happen between us, but I know that you used to be the guy that would make me feel like the most special girl in the whole world, and it doesn't feel that way anymore. Now it just feels sad and confusing. And the worst part is that it doesn't even feel that bad anymore.
