Gwyneth Paltrow returns to 'Glee' for a 'Kiss'

Matthew Morrison said it for a lot of Gleeks when he told EW in December, “I need some Holly Holliday in my life.” Gwyneth Paltrow is back, as last night’s credits teased, and this time she’s the “sexy sex-ed substitute.” (Please, no Mary Todd Lincoln outfits!) She and Will are clearly going to connect, what with Prince’s “Kiss” and their sultry dance-floor number. “Maybe’s it’s time I learned a little bit about romance,” breathes Holly. “I happen to be an excellent educator,” answers Will. Just kiss the girl, Mr. Schue.

    looks great, holly holliday is pure fun!

  • Sydney

    So excited that Gwyneth is back!!!

    • Alexandra

      Me to!

  • Mary

    Gwyneth and her singing are entirely overrated. She’s the one guest star on Glee that I don’t like and can’t understand why everyone thinks she’s so great. Idina and Kristin were awesome, Gwyneth not so much. And she ruined what could’ve been a fantastic cover of “Forget You”.

    • Alexandra

      Umm If “forget you” wasn’t good then why did Cee Lo love it so much that they performed it on the Grammys…..?

      • AM

        Exactly. Cee-Lo loved it and said he wanted to do a duet with her so he invited her to The Grammy’s. I say if the original songwriter and singer liked her version than who are you to say otherwise?

      • Mr. M

        It´s called publicity…

      • Ron Obvious

      There are times when people need to sit down and shut up. This is one of them, Mary. SIT DOWN AND SHUT UP. You wouldn’t know talent if it sat on your face and wiggled.

    • John S.

      I totally agree with you. I tolerated Holly the first time but I don’t think that I can this time. The original version of “Forget You” is a thousand times better than hers.

      • Jim

        Sorry. Green and I think you are stupid.

    • Tarc

      Hmmm. Reverse that, and I’d say that’s just about right. Since the single of Gweneth’s version outsold Cee-lo’s, I’d just most don’t agree there either. Personally, I found the gratuitous swearing of the original offputting, distracting from the otherwise great music. I was thrilled when they did a cleaner version, which improved the song a lot (and I have absolutely zero problem with swearing, it’s just it didn’t work in the original).

      • Brenda Barrett

        Umm…no. The profanity expresses how someone really feels in that situation. I hate the cleaned up Cee Lo version, as do most I know. that said, I loved GP’s version, too.

      • Chloe

        @Brenda Barrett I love your screen name, but I think you need to change it to Brenda Corinthos as of today!

    • Jim

      Perhaps because she is prettier at 40+ than you will ever be…and more talented.

  • Carrie

    I would much rather watch Gwyneth guest any day than the Emma Pillsbury character.

    • Tonya

      OMG, Carrie! You are right. Emma Pillsbury is supposed to be wacky/strange, but why would anyone want to date her? I just don’t get the (phsyical) attraction of that character.

      • AM

        I love Emma- I think she’s adorable. But I think Will need’s another love interest besides just her.

  • RobSD

    The Mary Todd Lincoln shout out was the BEST part of her first appearance.

  • cam

    didn’t think I was a fan, but loved her on glee. not really for her voice but how she played her character. hope she nails it again. sucks it’s a two week wait. :(

  • UGH

    Paltrow is completely overrated.

    • Shh

      Tell that to her Oscar ;)

    • Tarc

      I think her first visit on Glee showed that she’s completely *underrated*.

    • Jim

      Because she has more than you will ever have. Deal with it.

  • ST

    I have to admit, I wasn’t a big fan of Cee Lo’s “Forget You” but when Gwyn did it on Glee, it actually grew on me. And I like the original now too! Though I don’t think she’s the best singer,I do think she’s good (and will continue to improve as she practices) and she’s a good guest star for Glee.

  • GS

    I have to say that I am NOT a Gwyneth fan at all. I mean I am still ticked off she won an Oscar for that horrible Shakespeare in Love and loved that her head was in the box in Seven. But she flat out rocked it on Glee as Holly. First time I’ve ever liked her in anything. Even my husband said she was hot on the show and he had never thought that about her. And her performance with CeeLo was hands down the best of the night at the Grammy’s. She may not be a powerhouse singer but she is fun to watch b/c it’s so against her normal persona.

  • Shh

    YAY, I love Gwyneth, can’t wait for her episode!

  • opus

    I am excited that Gwyneth will be back and do not understand the haters. She sings quite well and the character of Holly is a lot of fun. The one person I am looking forward to more is the return of Kristen Chenowith. Her character may be crazy but oooooooh the singing – I’ve loved every song Kristen has done on Glee.

    • Amanda

      I agree I love Kristen Chenowith!

  • Amanda

    I liked the first episode she guest starred in and love all of the songs she covered. I think she a great addition to the guest star list. And in my opinion if she wasn’t any good at all she wouldn’t be back on the show. Not to mention performing on all the award shows. She might not be the greatest singer/actor out there, but there are some people that are singers that Definatly shouldn’t be.

  • Opine

    As a GOOP disliker (not hater, don’t care enough) I love that they showed the preview…. nice warning so I won’t accidentally tune in! Of course, Glee lost me completely by announcing that Butterface Griffin will be on soon too…. ugh.

  • holly

    she’ll be back if the ratings keep it around long enough. other than Jane Lynch its not really worth watching in my opinion

  • Katie

    ugh i cant STAND Gwenyth.. cant stand her thought she did a HORRID job last time she was on.. ugh.. so not looking forward to this ep.. i almost dont wanna watch it

    • melissa

      don’t like her but at least learn to spell her name right!

    • Jim

      I’m guess that you are both ugly and alone.

      • Nika

        That’s the best you can come up with? *yawn*
