'Glee' Wants Adele and Susan Boyle for Season 3

Adele'Glee' may have just bowed out for the summer, but the producers are hard at work prepping for Season 3 already, and word is that at least two new girls will be enrolling at McKinley High this fall.

According to TVLine.com producers are planning to add two recurring female characters to the cast. The casting call memorably describes one of them as "Adele meets Susan Boyle."

The lucky candidate will not only have to possess great singing chops, but she must be at least 18 years old and still be able to pass for a high-school student.

The second character is less specific. Named Rebecca, she's described as "beautiful and someone who can sing all kinds of music."

Grammy-winner Adele hit the big time in the U.S. in 2008 when she performed on 'Saturday Night Live' the same night that then-Vice-Presidential candidate Sarah Palin was a guest. The episode attracted record ratings for the show and Adele's debut album, '19' rocketed to the top of the iTunes chart the next day.

Her second album, '21,' was No. 1 on the Billboard chart, and the North American leg of her current tour was an instant sell-out (some dates are now postponed because she has laryngitis).

'Glee' has always promoted the underdog, so Susan Boyle seems like a great match-up. She rose to fame when she came second on 'Britain's Got Talent' in 2009. Her subsequent debut album, 'I Dreamed a Dream' sold 9 million copies in just six weeks, making it the biggest-selling album in the world that year.

Oh, God, no! Please don't do Adele again. Susan Boyle I could care less for, but you guys can't do Adele! I'm sorry, but you CAN'T!
