There are no plot details yet. But another spoiler, Gleekto, is reporting that “Into the Groove” will be performed by Kurt (Chris Colfer) Starchild (Adam Lambert) and the rest of the Madonna cover band.  Details on who sings what is forthcoming. I’ll update this post with the info when it’s available.

UPDATE:  Adam is filming (Oct 30) for Episode 7 titled “Puppet Master” according to a reliable spoiler.

For NYC they’re doing 5.07. The scene is set at a hipster bar in NYC. It’s a nice piano bar and the extras are instructed to dress very hipster-y. There’s a specific group of hipsters who are booked as “hot guys” and told to dress nice and have their hair done up like they are “every man or woman’s fantasy guy.”

The interesting part: The idea of the scene is that it’s Kurt’s fantasy. It is noted specifically that since Kurt is all about the fashion, and this is a nice, hipster piano bar club, they want the extras to come looking very nice.

(ETA: Demi, Adam, Naya, Chris, and Lea are all filming for the NYC scenes.)

On Oct 29, Lea Michele tweeted this:

It’s pretty clear the gang is filming Madonna’s “Into the Groove”.

If true (and I think it is) it marks the return of Adam Lambert after his episode 4 debut. Also, it looks like Kurt dealt with his insecurities and agreed to let Starchild into the band!

There are MORE details on episode 4 HERE. Song spoilers for episodes 5 and 6 HERE.

The title “Puppet Master” looks to be literal, as actual puppets are involved, per tweets from Ryan Murphy. It all looks rather Avenue Q.

Look at these cute New Directions puppets.


And Blaine surrounded by puppets!


The New York City kids get puppet doppelgangers too!

According to the photo captions, Marly and Jake perform together and Sue reveals the story behind her ubiquitous track suit. Also she and Unique have a discussion in her office.  It looks like she’s still McKinley High principal.

    I thought that photo from Ep 4 of Adam rehearsing in the loft kind of shows he didn’t really get cut!

  • Axxxel

    One of my favorite dancers..Fred Astaire, my most favorite Simple Mind song and a rumored duet between my 2 favorite artists at this moment…all this in one episode… Wow… really looking forward to this episode… Then again… I think that “Into the groove ” will be sung by Kurt, Starchild and hopefully Rachel… But I wont mind if it is Demi Levato’s character…

  • Q_3

    The spoiler from Gleeto said there would be 3 leads on “Into the Groove”. Here is what she posted.

    “With the caveat that things can always obviously change, as currently conceived – Into The Groove: Is being sung by the Madonna cover band in New York. Kurt and Starchild and one other singer from the group. (I assume that means the others are background but that’s all I know).
    This is from my very occasional source and yes, I am certain they’re trustworthy.”

    Is the 3rd singer Dani/Demi or Rachael? Either will be great.

  • Montavilla

    Interesting title. I wonder who the puppet master is. Wouldn’t it be cool if there were actually puppets in the episode? (Like that episode of Angel, where he gets magically muppified?)

  • Mel432

    This episode will probably air Dec. 5, assuming Glee will skip Thanksgiving day (evening).

    I was thinking Demi would be the third person to sing with Adam/Chris. I’m remembering when it was first announced that Adam would guest on Glee, there was talk about Adam and Demi singing together.

  • lkingcorn

    Looking forward to this Glee season! Excited to see it play out.

  • supersonic

    Three of my favorite songs are going to be ruined in this episode. I guess I’ll just have the original versions on repeat.


    Well I thought you and many more Glee fans were going to stop watching the show after the Cory tribute anyway, lol.

  • Q_3

    This episode (5×07) is listed on the FOX schedule as airing on 11/28/13 — Thanksgiving. They broadcast a new episode last year on 11/22/12 (Thanksgiving) too.

  • Kariann Hart

    Adam’s success on Glee could possibly lead to an acting job in a movie or two. That would be cool!

  • supersonic

    Thanksgiving? No one is going to watch, then. The episode on Thanksgiving last year had terrible ratings.

  • supersonic

    I didn’t even watch the Cory tribute. Bears/Giants were on and that was more important.


    Ray of sunshine strikes again, lol.


    Good! Looks like you are coping just fine.

  • Axxxel

    Talking about “ray”… imagine Adam Lambert reprising on Glee Madonna’s “Ray of Light”…like he did on VH1’s Diva’s… I still think that Adam’s performance as a singer, MC and comedy act during that VH1 event, persuaded Ryan Murphy to hire Adam for Glee…

  • Axxxel

    Puppet Master ? Kurt ? Rachel ? Santana ? Ryan Murphy ? Kidding…

  • Mel432

    You even knew the Glee ratings from a year ago?

  • Hannah Williams

    i want You’re My Best Friend to be Kurt, Rachel and Santana singing, just them :-0

  • Lane Cudmore

    I thought because I like Katy Perry and Lady Gaga also Ryan Murphy making copy Miley’s songs Lane say I don’t care
