Few events have been as highly-anticipated as the Glee Super Bowl episode, titled “The Sue Sylvester Shuffle.”
Jane Lynch, who plays Sue, featured heavily on the show -- and that would make any episode a success. But since Glee also gave us an epic musical number, a big guest star and an eye-popping twist, we’re glad to say the wait for the next new episode won’t be quite as long as the last one.
The show opened with the original audio of Katy Perry’s “California Gurls” set to a new Cheerios routine featuring pyrotechnics, blue wigs . . . and an angry Sue Sylvester. Unhappy with the routine, Coach Sue made some of the girls hit themselves with chicken cutlets to try and cheer herself up. Sue’s problem is not that the routine is bad -- it’s that she has to find a way to top herself, as Quinn Fabray (Dianna Agron) pointed out.
The 2011 Super Bowl was enjoyed by millions and hyped for many weeks on end -- and, it didn’t disappoint. The game was exciting (even if the cheerleaders were lacking), and FOX’s coverage was extremely thorough.
But let’s face it: the sports wasn’t the best part. Super Bowl XLV was jam-packed with advertising, and some spots managed to shine above the rest. We found videos for the top 5 commercials of the Super Bowl to make it easier to watch them again and again. You can, too, after the jump. . .
Glee’s reigning diva will take her appropriate place in the spotlight.
Lea Michele, who plays Rachel Berry on the hit series, will sing “America the Beautiful” at the Super Bowl XLV.
Michele’s performance will preceded Christina Aguilera, who will sing the national anthem, and The Black Eyed Peas, who will be featured during the halftime show.
The Super Bowl airs on February 6, just before the most highly-anticipated Glee episode of the year.
