As promised, Gwyneth Paltrow popped up at the "Glee Live!" show at the summer tour's London stop on Wednesday. Lea Michele, who plays Rachel Berry on the show, tweeted earlier that the night's event was "going to be a special one" before she revealed that Paltrow was the surprise.
The 38-year-old had a breakout role on the Fox series as the substitute teacher Holly Holiday, and she joined the "Glee" crew at the O2 arena for another rendition of Cee Lo's "Forget You," as she previously did in New Jersey. According to the Daily Mail, Santana, as played by Naya Rivera, was in the middle of telling the "Glee" crew that she'd been named the sexiest glee club member when Paltrow strolled on stage and challenged her to a sing-off.
Hopefully they enjoyed her performance as much as this fan, who told the actress/singer on Twitter, "you were SO AMAZING tonight, thank you soooo much!! You have made my life!!!"
