Madonna..simply saying the word aloud makes me feel powerful, even in voice over. How I have worshipped her ever since I was a little girl!
Sorry Angie Jo Lee! Katherine, the Great! Madonna is the most powerful woman to ever walk the face of the Earth!
Those words, are not mine! They belong the a certain Sue Sylvester. I have not worshipped Madonna, but I have admired her from a distance. She's most definitely one of the biggest performers to ever be discovered and her music is not fixed to a particular generation. Much like the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson, her music is of a life-time.
I do happen to worship the TV show Glee though. I'm a huge fan of Glee. Huge, huge, huge fan of Glee!
Ever since I first read about it's conception I have been excited about it. It's a musical!
Musicals have been a constant fascination for me. Ever since I have gotten to know about Broadway, it's on my to-do list to go see at least one of the show. Suggestions of what to watch are welcome!
Coming back to Madonna, I also happen to be a huge fan of her. My obsession with her started when I saw her song Jump being played on Channel V sometime back in 2006. I purchased her last two albums, Confessions on a Dancefloor and Hard Candy. Once I got familar with downloading, I gave her entire catalogue a listen. No one quite like the Material Girl to empower one's music collection.
Sometime around the beginning of 2010, I saw the announcement for Glee people planning a Madonna tribute episode. Needless to say I was ecstatic. Two of my favorite things combined. It's magical!
I had two presentations in the past week and a test to top that. While I had downloaded the episodes, I had not gotten a chance to watch them till today. And I was simply blown away. I had this big stupid smile like I do when I'm talking to Nathan. I loved every minute of it. Sue Sylvester is definitely the high light of the show, especially in this episode. Her re-creation of Madonna's Vogue was exhilarating to watch. Not quite as graceful as Madonna, but given her character's personality the video came out perfect. It's exactly how it should have been!
The musical numbers were amazing. I especially liked Express Yourself and 4 Minutes. But I do amit that it was hard to pick a favorite. Also my crush on Kurt (Chris Colfer) is fully re-instated as of now. I simply adored his preppie look and sassy attitude during the 4 Minutes musical number. It was so effing brilliant. Also that boy most definitely has the chops to sing with the best of them.
I'm giving this episode a 9.5 outta 10! Why am I knocking of .5?
Well since it's all about Madonna. Why not include a cameo of her very delicous arm candy, Jesus Luz?
Yummy! I most definitely need some Jesus in my life!
Also I'm loving the depth they've added to Quinn (Diana Agron) this season. I guess being knocked up does knock some sense into a person. About time a certain celebrity who's first name rhymes with Faris should start looking for a beau to get busy with, don't you think?
Also I'm hearing that Ryan Murphy; the man behind Glee, is thinking of doing more celebrity centered episodes. And more specifically a Britney Spears theme is in the pipe-line. I can only wonder what will happen next!
