If you’ve been following Ryan Murphy on Twitter (@MrRPMurphy) – which you should be, because not only does he tweet behind-the-scenes shots from Glee, American Horror Story, and The New Normal, but he is sassy and funny in a way he rarely is in interviews – you’ve watched him slowly try to talk himself into doing a Moulin Rouge Tribute on Glee.
August 31st : I talked to Baz about doing an MR tribute episode. I love him. He is so talented. (x)
September 5th: If you had a choice…80s episode or Moulin Rouge episode? (x)
September 5th: But, now I’m stuck on the Moulin Rouge idea. (x)
September 13th: I want Moulin Rouge. (x)
September 20th: I want a Klaine duet in the Moulin Rouge episode. (x)
It’s been fun watching him go from hypotheticals to determination and clearly planning out song choices. And now it appears to be official! Jenny Cooney, on set for a Hollywood Foreign Press event, just tweeted (sic) “scoop; there will be
#moukinrouge [sic] tribute episode this season!”(x)
What do you think, Gleeks? Are you tired of tribute episodes or has this been on your wish list? How will they even make the storyline fit in – will they even bother? What songs do you want to see recreated and who do you want to sing them? Are you behind Ryan on the Klaine duet? Now’s the time to make your predictions!
