It's a GLEE-TASTIC Screening at Comic-Con

According to the LA Times, the producers of Fox’s, GLEE, the quirky new show about a high school glee club, premiered the entire second episode to fans at Comic-Con on Saturday. The standing-room-only turnout for the Comic-Con panel and screening gave it a very enthusiastic welcome, creating fresh GLEE buzz leading up to the official series premiere on September 16 at 9/8c.

That was especially true for two musical numbers, covers of Kanye West's "Gold Digger" and (especially) Salt N Pepa's "Push It," which became a showstopper in the episode. Earlier this year, the cast's cover of Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'" lit up iTunes charts and became the show's signature tune. The producers promise more striking musical choices in the future, including a late-season episode that will feature songs by both Barbra Streisand and the Rolling Stones.

In the meantime, the cast is headed out on a 12-day, 10-city tour this summer to drum up more interest in the show. That includes 22-year-old Lea Michele, the longtime Broadway trouper who plays lovestruck Rachel Berry and appears positioned for major stardom with this role. Michele received raucous applause and cheers upon being introduced and most of the fan questions were directed at her.
