GLEE's Extended 'Born This Way' Episode Confirmed!

It's been confirmed! As reported by BroadwayWorld last week, the April 26 episode of GLEE entitled 'Born This Way,' has officially been extended to 90 minutes. Executive producer Ian Brennan called the episode "really cracking and funny and smart."

While the episode features songs by superstar Lady Gaga, the episode will not focus exclusively on her music. Instead, the installment, which was inspired by Gaga's latest anthem, will revolve around self-acceptance. As described by TVLine, in the episode, 'Lauren (Ashley Fink) runs for prom queen, in so doing challenging the traditional notion of what a pageant princess looks like. Rachel (Lea Michele), meanwhile, considers getting a nose job.'

Additionally, the GLEE Cast version of Jay-Z's anthem "Empire State of Mind" has the single highest first day sales for any GLEE track released to date.
