Lady Gaga Episode of Glee: Extended to 90 Minutes

by at . Comments

First, the bad news for Glee fans: the show, originally scheduled to return on April 12, won't actually air a new installment until April 19.

Now, the exciting news: A week later, the series will pay tribute to Lady Gaga with an episode that's been extended to 90 minutes in length.

Titled "Born This Way," the hour-and-a-half will focus on a theme of self-acceptance, as - spoiler alert! - Karofsky sings a cover of this Gaga hit.

Karofsky vs. Kurt

Among other season two spoilers, viewers have not see the last of Dave Karofsky.

Cory Monteith has described the upcoming outing as "a classic Glee episode where we explore embracing the things about ourselves that we don't like and tailoring our performances around that."

The actor also says "blackmail" will somehow be involved.

TV Line, which first reported this story, says most of the episode has been filmed, but the cast will now go in and add two additional music numbers to the hour.

I love glee and everything it stands for! Kurt is my fav and I love the storylines about sexuality. It's an important topic and people deserve to be loved and accepted for who they are! I am personally a huge Dave fan and I hope there is resolution for him. Im not excusing his actions but he represents all the people out there who are lgbt and feel lost. I also looooove Santana!

Why on earth is there so much Karkofsky this season? Nobody likes him but still he is getting a lot of screen time that could be used to actually do something with all the MAJOR characters!
What about Tina, Mike, Emma, Artie, Mercedes...? When was the last time any of them got a good storyline?
And I'a still mad we never got to see a follow-up on Quinn giving up her baby.
It's getting frustrating that all these great characters and storylines are just forgotten about and instead we get Karkofsky, Puck and Lauren, Finn and Quinn and other totally random and stupid plots... But to say something positive as well.... Yeah for giving us more Santana!!!

I'm a bit meh about the episode, the writing has been so inconsistant lately I'm neither excited or worried.
But just to clear up people's concerns that it'll be ALL about Kurt/Dave it actually will feature a bunch of the NDs having issues they need to deal with including Rachel considering a nose job (after spending the whole season saying everyone is prettier than her to the point it now sounds like she's fishing for compliments, which I'm sure was never the actual intention just poor writing) and Lauren wanting to be prom queen but facing that the chances are unlikely due to her looks (and although the media blurbs aren't mentioning it it'll probably also feature Santana having some sort of ephiphany about her sexuality). It won't be solely an episode deicated to gay issues.

Enough with this Lady Gaga crap. God, she's not even a real artist, she's just a big joke. I don't get the hype at all. Anyways... I'm looking forward to the episode nevertheless and I hope it's not just about Kurt and Karofsky.

making THIS episode of all of them 90 mins long? Yep, Ryan Murphy has officially made Glee the gayest show on television. you can just tell the whole thng is about Kurt-Karaofsky and thats it. Cory saying "embracing the things about ourselves".... no, just a few of you. Chances are these big changes they make in themselves won't last till the next season.
as a massive Gleek and epic fighter for equality, im loathing this already ._.

I don't like the idea if him singing Born This Way, but we'll just have to wait and see if he can pull it off.

They've already been there with Lady Gaga. There are a million other artists out there, enough with the constant top40 already. That song isn't even that good and I seriously am not looking forward to Karofsky sing.

I really want to see the episode, I just hope it's worth the extra week waiting :P
