glee extraordinary christmasGleeks, Christmas has come a little early this year. It's hard to be critical of a 'Glee' Christmas episode, especially when everyone always looks so cheerful.

It's time to put up the tree, wrap the gifts, and dance around with some garland. Now that the Troubletones are no more, the entire glee club is back together this holiday season to help deck the halls at McKinley. Not only will New Directions get a chance to be featured in a holiday special, but they'll also be joined by a very special guest -- Chewbacca!

"[Chewbacca] makes an appearance into Artie's dream in a way," Shum told AOL TV. "I can't really delve into the details, but it's something to do with Artie."

Say what you want about 'Glee,' but any show that can actually pull off an amazing 'Man in the Mirror' cover is OK in my books, and that's exactly what the New Directions did in 'Hold on to Sixteen. 'But it was more than just 'the Sectionals episode.' It actually gave me some hope for the rest of the season, hope that the writers had not forgotten about their characters.

Crazy Quinn? She's gone ... Hooray! It's been a rough few seasons with Quinn, but here's hoping that her crazy spell is officially over because I happen to really love Dianna Agron.

I don't know what I enjoyed more in this episode: Sam's anticipated return, the Troubletones awesome 'Survivor/I Will Survive' diva mash-up, the New Directions' Jackson family medley or Rachel and Quinn's surprising character developments.

But let's get back to Sectionals. It was a battle for show choir dominance, and in the end, only one glee club could advance to Regionals. And the Sectionals glory goes to ...

Chord Overstreet on His Return to 'Glee' in a Speedo

chord overstreet gleeGleeks, get ready. Sam Evans is returning 'Glee', and Chord Overstreet couldn't be more excited to return to the role that made him -- and his Trouty Mouth lips -- famous.

In this week's all-new 'Glee' (Tues., Dec. 6 at 8PM ET on Fox), Sam is back -- guitar and 'Red Solo Cup' in hand -- to help the New Directions win Sectionals.

This time around, Sam ditches his football cleats for a skin-tight speedo in hopes of scoring a Letterman jacket, and a date with his ex, Mercedes. But it's not going to be easy. "She's not exactly up for just dropping her current boyfriend, so that's a little frustrating for Sam," Overstreet told AOL TV. "He never really got over her."

While Overstreet can't confirm how long he'll be sticking around McKinley, he does have an exciting project coming up. After leaving 'Glee' last summer, he went straight to the studio to start working on his acoustic pop debut album, which fans can expect sometime in 2012.

"I got a lot of great stuff done, and I'm really excited about how the finished album is going to sound," Overstreet said. "I think I'll be ready to release an album around next year."

'Glee' Cast Reveals Details of 'Weird' Backstage Antics

Glee Cast PsychiatristWhen you're part of a big ensemble TV cast, there's a lot of downtime on set. While some stars retreat to their trailers in solitude, the cast of 'Glee' has found a different way to pass time between takes.

'Glee' heartthrobs Chord Overstreet and Harry Shum Jr. recently told AOL TV about their favorite game-- "psychiatrist."

"We sit in the room and one person leaves the room and has no idea what's going on and everyone in the room has to come up with a problem that they all have," Shum told us during a recent phone interview. "Then, the 'psychiatrist' has to come in and guess what problem everyone has."

Despite the faux title, the actor says being a "psychiatrist" on the 'Glee' set is not an easy job.

'Glee': 'Hold on to Sixteen' Song Previews and Performances

glee hold on to sixteenIt's New Directions v. the Troubletones in next week's all new 'Glee' (Tues., 8PM ET on Fox). In 'Hold on to Sixteen,' it's Sectionals time, but without Rachel to rely on, the New Directions need a little extra help from an old friend -- Sam Evans!

Trouty Mouth -- and his guitar -- return just in time to help the New Directions take down the Troubletones at Sectionals, but Santana and Mercedes aren't going down without a fight. And judging by the recently released video of the Troubletones diva-licious Sectionals mash-up, 'Survivor/I Will Survive,' the New Directions are going to have quite a challenge on their hands.

But how can you go wrong with a Jackson family medley? Not to mention that Sam must have some crazy dance skills now that he's spent some time as White Chocolate.

Listen to the songs -- and see Sam get down with his red solo cups -- after the jump.

Chord Overstreet's 'Glee' Return (PHOTOS)

Chord Overstreet GleeWelcome back, Trouty Mouth.

Chord Overstreet makes his triumphant return to 'Glee' (Tues., Dec. 13, 8PM ET on Fox) after a sudden departure.

News of Overstreet's exit broke this summer after the actor wasn't offered a series regular gig on the teen musical show. Series co-creator Ryan Murphy said Overstreet was welcome to return as a recurring guest star, but Overstreet decided to pursue his music and other acting gigs. Since leaving 'Glee' he guest starred on ABC's 'The Middle.' However, he's taken up the recurring offer and his character Sam Evans will return to help New Directions perform at Sectionals.

"We love Chord and have always said that we wanted him back," Murphy said in a statement in October. "So here's an early Christmas present for all the Gleeks -- Sam is coming back to McKinley, and just in time for sectionals!"

In preview photos below, Overstreet's character is performing for the glee club. Even his trusty guitar is back.

'Glee' Season 3, Episode 7 Recap: Santana Comes Out and There's a New Class President

glee season 3 episode 7 recap['Glee' -- 'I Kissed a Girl']

Uh. Maybe it's time to bring the leprechaun because 'Glee' could really use some magic. Sure, every season has its good episodes and its not so good episodes -- unfortunately, 'I Kissed a Girl' was one of the not so good ones. In fact, it was down-right frustrating.

The story lines were all over the place, the music was awful -- which was especially upsetting because I happen to really like chick rock -- and the worst part? It made me stop caring about these characters. Not to mention that I think I fell out of love with Blaine. This could be a problem.

In fact, the only character I sympathized with this episode was Santana (and Coach Bieste, but I'll get to that). The one thing I think 'Glee' does consistently well is demonstrate how gay teenagers feel about coming out. This episode featured an emotional scene between Santana and her grandmother -- her beloved abuela.

Not everyone is as accepting as Burt Hummel, and Santana learned that first-hand.

'Glee' Covers Katy Perry's 'I Kissed a Girl'

by Crystal Bell, posted Nov 23rd 2011 2:00PM
glee I kissed a girlSo now that Santana's out of the closet she obviously needs to express her feelings in song, right? At least that's what Finn thinks. In an effort to help Santana cope with coming out -- and probably because he feels a little bad for being the one to push her out of the closet -- Finn comes up with a plan that will bring the New Directions and the Troubletones together -- in song. Finn's plan? Sing only songs written and performed by women, for women.

Naturally, Katy Perry's bi-curious anthem 'I Kissed a Girl' is a perfect choice for our favorite McKinley high Latina diva.

Accompanied by her fellow Troubletones, Mercedes, Sugar and Brittany, and the New Directions' girls Rachel, Quinn and Tina, Santana shakes and shimmies her way down the McKinley halls and into the choir room.

Of course, the boys are totally digging it, especially newbie Rory, who gets a little too excited.

Is 'Glee' Planning a Jackson Family Tribute for Sectionals?

glee: the music, volume 7It looks like the holidays will be exceptionally gleeful for 'Glee' fans this season. 'Glee: The Music, Volume 7' is hitting the shelves -- and iTunes -- on Dec. 6. Not only will it feature some of Season 3's best, like the widely praised Adele mash-up, 'Rumour Has It/Someone Like You,' but it also includes three Jackson classics, 'ABC,' 'Control' and 'Man in the Mirror.'

Does this mean the New Directions will be singing a Jackson medley for Sectionals? All signs are point toward YES! ... but we'll have to wait and see.

Now here's the real question: Who will sing what? Hopefully, Artie can continue his Michael Jackson streak, having covered both 'Thriller' and 'P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)' for the New Directions.

Check out the full track list after the jump.

'Glee' Season 3, Episode 6 Recap: Finn Pushes Santana Out of the Closet (VIDEO)

Hear that, gleeks? That was the slap heard around the world -- and it was also a huge wake-up call for 'Glee' fans everywhere because that was seriously one of my favorite episodes ever. Okay, so it had a little too much Sue Sylvester for my liking, but at least her slandering ways had a purpose this episode. Everything from the song choices to the tight choreography and witty one-liners made this episode a knock-out.

And since Puck's tacky "Hot for Teacher" serenade happens within the first five minutes, it's easy to forget it ever happens. On the other hand, the Troubletone's "Rumor Has It/Someone Like You" Adele mash-up is now second favorite 'Glee' song ever (because nothing can come close to "Teenage Dream" in my book).

Naya Rivera, you have officially become my favorite gleek. Sorry Chris Colfer, but you had your season last year, and although I still love you and your fabulous ensembles, now, it's Naya's chance to shine -- and Santana's coming out storyline is pretty explosive.

For starters, she didn't come out. She was pushed out by an angry, fed up Finn.

glee songs from mash off'Glee' is back at one of the things it does best: mash-ups! We just wish we could say that all of them are as good as Santana and Mercedes' epic Adele mash-up.

After five weeks of neglect, Finn finally gets his time to shine. He's featured in three of the five songs this week, and it looks like he'll even get a drum solo. Shelby also makes her vocal debut this season, singing a slow-tempo 'You & I/You & I' mash-up with Will. Shelby must really like Lady Gaga because this is her second Gaga song on 'Glee,' but we prefer her 'Poker Face' duet with Rachel in Season 1.
