Lea Michele joined Kristin Chenoweth, who was being honored as an inductee to the Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame, onstage this weekend for a duet—and it was hard to shake the notion that she was trying on the role of Elphaba in the long-in-the-works big-screen version of Wicked this past weekend. She also had some words of gratitude for Chenoweth, who comforted Michele after her boyfriend, Cory Monteith, died last summer.
