Sue in a cone bra?

The Cheerios working their pompoms in a routine to ‘Express Yourself’?

Curt proclaiming himself to be part of the glitterati? It sounds like the highly anticipated all-Madonna episode of ‘Glee’ will have all the Gleeks dancing on ‘La Isla Bonita.’

Entertainment Tonight previewed a sneak peek at the Golden Globe-winning show.


The one-minute clip, which you can watch repeatedly above, also shows Jonathan Groff, more slushy throwing and more cattiness from our favorite Cheerios. By the way, those are Lea Michele’s golden pipes on ‘Express Yourself.’

Rumors have plagued the Internet over which songs from Madonna’s nearly 25-year catalog would be featured. Quinn (Dianna Agron) is reportedly singing ‘Papa Don’t Preach,’ while Sue (Jane Lynch) takes on ‘Vogue.’

Now what could the rest of the gang take on? There would have to be some new Madonna tracks cut in for the young’uns, maybe a take on ‘4 Minutes,’ naturally because Will (Matthew Morrison) is the resident Justin Timberlake at McKinley High, and maybe there could be a duet on one of my favorite Madonna songs, the aforementioned ‘La Isla Bonita’ or ‘Get Together.’

Creator Ryan Murphy told Entertainment Weekly that the episode would be huge.
‘It’s got like 10 numbers in it, and the production value is very big,’ Murphy said. ‘We adore her and worship her, so when I’m directing, I’m always, like, ‘Do it for Madonna.’ ‘

Bring it on on April 13, and please try to get the queen in the episode. We wouldn’t want her to be somewhere in the English countryside in a stately manor home, weeping.
