Fox offers first look at the Madonna episode of 'Glee'


Sue in a cone bra?

The Cheerios working their pompoms in a routine to "Express Yourself"?

Curt proclaiming himself to be part of the glitterati? It sounds like the highly anticipated all-Madonna episode of "Glee" will have all the Gleeks dancing on "La Isla Bonita."

Entertainment Tonight previewed a sneak peek at the Golden Globe-winning show.

The one-minute clip, which you can watch repeatedly above, also shows Jonathan Groff, more slushy throwing and more cattiness from our favorite Cheerios. By the way, those are Lea Michele's golden pipes on "Express Yourself." 

Rumors have plagued the Internet over which songs from Madonna's nearly 25-year catalog would be featured. Quinn (Dianna Agron) is reportedly singing "Papa Don't Preach," while Sue (Jane Lynch) takes on "Vogue."

Now what could the rest of the gang take on? There would have to be some new Madonna tracks cut in for the young'uns, maybe a take on "4 Minutes," naturally because Will (Matthew Morrison) is the resident Justin Timberlake at McKinley High, and maybe there could be a duet on one of my favorite Madonna songs, the aforementioned "La Isla Bonita" or "Get Together."

Creator Ryan Murphy told Entertainment Weekly that the episode would be huge.

"It's got like 10 numbers in it, and the production value is very big," Murphy said. "We adore her and worship her, so when I'm directing, I'm always, like, 'Do it for Madonna.' "

Bring it on on April 13, and please try to get the queen in the episode. We wouldn't want her to be somewhere in the English countryside in a stately manor home, weeping.

Dianna Agron already sang "Papa Don't Preach" in the first half of season 1.

I'd love to hear any of them do either "Beautiful Stranger" -- I could see Puck with that one -- or "Live to Tell" possibly by Mr Shue.

Definitely want to hear the following if there's going to be 10: Express Yourself, Vogue, Open Your Heart, Like A Prayer, Ray of Light, Hung Up, Like A Virgin, Don't Tell Me, Borderline and Power of Goodbye.

@Erica,
You are in fact correct...wonder if they are doing a different version. This has been said more than once when the episode was in production???

"Quinn (Dianna Agron) is reportedly singing "Papa Don't Preach,"

Dianna sang that already in one of the firs 13 episodes.

It's Kurt not Curt, and Quinn (Dianna Agron) already sang "Papa Don't Preach," in an earlier episode.

I would love to hear Hanky Panky, You Thrill Me(Erotica), Burning Up, Gambler, Who's That Girl, Deeper & Deeper, Jump, 4 minutes, Give it 2 Me, Everybody, Don't Tell Me, What It Feels Like For A Girl, You'll See, Celebration, or Miles Away.

PLEASE NO LA ISLA BONITA!!!!!!!!!!!
Madonna has murdered that song!!!!!!!!!
I want different tracks!

Papa Don't Preach RULED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It will be a refreshing change -- at least the "Glee" cast members can actually sing.
