Beyoncé & Glee make sweet music together
LOS ANGELES: Beyoncé's "Single Ladies" just won't go away, will it?
Justin Timberlake had us laughing with his leotard-wearing rendition on Saturday Night Live. Then Joe Jonas had us cringing when he showed off some rather spastic moves to the hit dance song. And of course, there are those gazillion YouTube videos paying homage to Beyoncé's engagement ring anthem.
Now comes Glee, the new upcoming Fox dramedy from Nip/Tuck creator Ryan Murphy.
So how does Mr. Murphy use "Single Ladies"? We'll tell you now so you don't have to wait until the episode airs on Sept. 30.
The very fey Kurt Hummel (Chris Colfer) is caught by his dad (Mike O'Malley) dancing in a leotard to "Single Ladies" with two female friends. To try to cover up his less-than-masculine traits, Kurt ends up convincing his father that he's the high school football team's newest kicker.
Kurt somehow lands himself the position and becomes the school hero when he helps the team break its losing streak by incorporating "Single Ladies" into one of their plays.
The Beyoncé-meets-pigskin sequence of events leads to Kurt's coming out to his father. And the best part, Dad says he always knew and that he loves him no matter what.
Now that, dear readers, is music to our ears.
