at . Comments

Cheyenne Jackson is taking over on Glee.

Although previously spoilers have revealed that Idina Menzel will reprise her role as Shelby on season two, we can confirm that she will NOT return as the coach of Vocal Adrenaline.

Instead, that gig will fall to a character portrayed by Jackson, a Broadway star most recently seen on 30 Rock as a new cast member of TGS.

Blaine: I needed you. I needed you around and you weren't there. And I was lonely. And I'm...I'm really sorry.
Kurt: You don't think that I've been lonely? You don't think that I've had temptations? But I didn't act on it because I knew what it meant. It meant something horrible and awful.
