The latest episode of Glee made me realize something about myself: I can’t let go of certain things. And by things, I mean my hatred of everything ‘N Sync-related.
As a child of the ’90′s (literally, I was born in 1990), I felt forced, at a very young age, to pick a side: Backstreet Boys or ‘N Sync. I immediately gravitated toward the pitch-perfect harmonies of BSB as opposed to the Justin Timberlake-JC Chasez duets that featured three other dancing guys. It might seem harsh, but any child of the ’90′s knows that this rivalry was real and cutthroat. And back then, it was okay for me to be so harsh in my approach to pop music, so long as it was out of love for Brian, AJ, Howie, Nick and Kevin. Ten years later? I’m not so sure it’s rational anymore.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m not ashamed of my ongoing love affair with the best boy-band of all time. When I was 20, I went to two Backstreet concerts within four days of each other. And so did my 50-year-old father, who also enjoys pitch-perfect harmonies… just sayin’. You see, the love and dedication isn’t what I’m worried about. It’s the hatred.
It’s the fact that when my friends put an ‘N Sync song on while we’re having an impromptu dance party (as everyone does), I stop dancing. And as much as they think I’m being ridiculous, and as much as I know that I’m being ridiculous, I just can’t fake it. And when Glee did a mash-up of “Bye Bye Bye” and “I Want It That Way,” I was a little offended. However, if my obsession stopped there, I might be alright. But it doesn’t… READ FULL STORY »
Jeremy Jordan and Jonathan Groff sing gender-bending cover of 'Let Me Be Your Star' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO
It’s Smash as you’ve never seen it before.
What if Broadway vets Jeremy Jordan (Newsies) and Jonathan Groff (Spring Awakening) had been vying to play Marilyn Monroe on the first season of the Broadway-set NBC drama instead of Katharine McPhee and Megan Hilty? Well, alternate-universe shippers can rejoice! On Monday, Jordan and Groff belted out a gender-bent version of the show’s signature ballad, “Let Me Be Your Star,” at a benefit for the Off Broadway’s MCC Theater (whose current production, Really Really, stars Girls‘ Zosia Mamet and Parenthood‘s Matt Lauria).
This year’s “Miscast” fund-raiser featured a bunch of theater-friendly celebs performing tunes originally written for performers of decidedly different ages, genders, or ethnicities. Tony-winner Jane Krakowski tackled the title song from the Latino-centric musical In the Heights, while her former 30 Rock castmate Cheyenne Jackson paired with Jordan to play Side Show‘s conjoined twins Daisy and Violet on “Who Will Love Me As I Am.” But nothing can top Jordan and Groff’s wiggy take on “Let Me Be Your Star.”

A fresh rhythm, more big-stage flair and a classic songbook were among the promises that accompanied the 85th Annual Academy Awards on Sunday night and it’s hard to imagine a better hook to catch the attention of the Federation – no, not the Star Trek thing, this one is the new celebrity super-group that gathered Sunday near Table No. 18 at Elton John’s annual Oscar viewing party.

Cheerios, rejoice! Jane Lynch, who won an Emmy as sharp-tongued cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester on Fox’s Glee, will make her Broadway debut this spring in the hit musical revival of Annie. The role seems like a perfect fit for the star: Miss Hannigan, the drunken and scheming head of young Annie’s orphanage who melodically complains about being surrounded by “little girls.” Lynch, an Illinois native who got her start in theater at Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theatre Company and Second City, will appear in the musical for eight weeks only, from May 16 through July 14.

Marc Webb, director of The Amazing Spider-Man 2, tweeted a video that revealed a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it glimpse of Spider-Man’s new black mask (or should we say “eye”) and the questions came pouring.
Does this mean that they’re going to introduce the Venom character in this movie? Is the suit getting a huge makeover? Does this video reveal anything ? The answer to all these questions is: Probably not. But the video is a perfect example of the amazing (and at times, infuriating) spoiler-lite content that showrunners and directors post on Twitter.
For any pop culture obssesive, a page of a script, a photo from the set, or a short comment hashtagged with a favorite show name can provide sustenance for hours of debate. What does it all mean? What are they telling us? What aren’t they telling us?
These tiny spoilers are smart from a marketing point of view (after all, we’ve now said The Amazing Spider-Man 2 twice already in this post) and they get fans excited. So, I’ve learned to stop worrying and love the Twitter tease.
Here are a few of the best Twitter teasers out there:

[Serious spoiler alert if you haven’t seen last night’s episode of Glee]
Time for a Gleek out! You may have thought last night’s episode of Glee was going to be big, but who could have called everything that would happen in Lima on Valentine’s Day? The biggest plot point we all thought was pretty close to a sure thing – the Will and Emma wedding – didn’t happen, and instead, we got a jilted groom, hookups galore, new characters and even a possible pregnancy. Wowza. We have to wait three more weeks to find out what the next step is (Glee returns Mar. 7) but for now, what revelation got the biggest reaction out of you? I, for one, gasped out loud when Santana and Quinn got a hotel room (!) and then at the end when Rachel was waiting for the results of her pregnancy test (!!!).

Smash has done it again (no, not in the ratings, let’s forget about those for a minute) —we’re talking about using songs that sound pretty familiar — mainly because they’ve been on a different musical TV show, Glee, as recently as the current season.
During its two-hour premiere Tuesday night, Ivy (Megan Hilty) covered Crowded House’s 1986 hit “Don’t Dream It’s Over” as a faraway-look-in-her-eye ballad of resilience. Except that Glee already covered the song, as a cheer-us-up chorus of resilience — and beanies.
This isn’t all that surprising: Before Smash’s debut in 2011, producer Craig Zadan said at NBC Press Tour, “I don’t think any of us feel our show is like Glee, but we feel grateful to Glee for opening that door,” – creating space for more TV musical shows. Last night’s episode certainly isn’t the first time Smash has followed in Glee‘s footsteps: In the pilot, Smash had Karen (Katherine McPhee) singing “Beautiful,” which Mercedes (Amber Riley) sang on Glee all the way back in season 1.
But there’s more! “Over the Rainbow” and “Shake It Out” have been covered by both shows. Perhaps the overlap in last night’s episode was only all the more striking since Smash has prided itself leading up to last night’s season premiere on a second-season renaissance with a new showrunner and some major cast changes.
