'Glee' needs more Chenoweth

Somewhere, someone has got to be starting a petition to land Kristin Chenoweth a permanent spot on “Glee.”

Her guest starring turn as the boozy, former show choir member April Rhodes whom teacher Will Schuester (played by Matthew Morrison) recruits as a ringer for his high school glee club came close to sheer perfection.

The character of April was delicious for so many reasons, not least of which is the revenge fantasy that many of us have, in which the super-hot girl in high school who seems to be able to do everything well grows up to become a hot mess.

Chenoweth – who has been a darling of Broadway lovers for years, and who recently won an Emmy for her role on the now canceled ABC dramedy “Pushing Daisies” – seemed perfectly at home on the quirky show that is “Glee.”

Her portrayal of April managed to come across as both endearing and tragic.  But what Chenoweth does best is sing, and her performance of “Maybe This Time” from “Cabaret” - which she sang in “battle” form with student Rachel Berry (played by another Broadway veteran, Lea Michele) - had me mesmerized.

I would love to see more of April roaming the halls of McKinley High - and we know from Chenoweth’s Emmy speech that she is looking for work.

So, what do you think? Would Chenoweth make a good addition to the cast?

    She stole the show! I watched the episode last week and changed the channel after about 15 minutes. If Kristin was on (and more importantly SANG!) every week, I would watch it every week. Courteney Cox could not possibly compete in the same time slot. Pushing Daisies was a great show anyway, but Kristin made it much better. Her rendition of 'Hopelessly Devoted' was very memorable. If she gets to sing on Glee, that would be a perfect fit. Pity that Mutt Lange doesn't give her a call. She would be a much bigger star than Shania or Brittney.

    I agree that Kristin did a great job, but please don't compare Kristin vs. Lea's singing abilities based on the singing in this show. It was part of the plot that Kristin was supposed to be better, so it was orchestrated that way, both in the choreography and in the audio post production.

    The audio of this show is heavily sweetened, and with the audio tools that are available today you can make any reasonable singer sound great, or not so great. I think if you actually carefully examine the "battle" song, you will see that they intentionally did not do as good a job with Lea's voice as they normally do in other numbers that she has sung, although the effect was subtle. I don't know who is actually the better singer in real life, but the only way I could actually judge it would be for them to sing without any enhancement, which is not going to happen.

    @MKS – I think she slotted into the West Wing ensemble perfectly and she proved an awesome foil to Leo McGarry toward the end of the series.

    I don't think she should be a regular.

    She is too big, too bright, too great to be in an ensemble cast. Without knocking her and without her intending to, she would steal every scene she's in. The show would become hers and it would ruin the great chemistry that Glee has on its own now. Maybe if she shows up once or twice a season, but no more than that.

    Honestly, I think her character seemed out of place. She shifted the momentuem and seemed to throw things a skew. Its really cool to see the incredible talent of the young people on the show, but their is nothing remarkable about having a middle aged adult on the show? While obviously very talented, I thought that episode was the worst written of the season so far. Bad move by the writers/directors.

    I think the concept introduced on the show could fit well into another type of comedy or drama, but the appeal of glee is about highly talented kids, that are learning about the lessons of life.

    Just when I think Glee couldn't get any better, they throw in a surprise like Kristin Chenoweth that not only is an amazing singer, but brings an element to the show that no one else could. Besides thinking that April Rhodes should have a permanent spot on Glee, they also should spotlight Mercedes (Amber Riley) because she completely floored us all with her version Jasmine Sullivan's version of "Bust Your Windows". Talent like that should be showcased more often than the white bread, typical singers like Rachel (Lea Michele). She is very talented and I appreciate what she brings to the show too, but Amber and Mercedes need more time on the show for showcasing their rare and individual voices.

    No doubt, Kristin C is a fine performer, but I watch for the newbies. An occasional cameo, maybe, but enough. If you want her full time, let her carry her own show and stop stealing the performance time from the kids and oddball staff. That's what I signed on for, so if it's all KC, I'm bowing out. I can watch Law and Order triple reruns or maybe the weather channel.

    Kristin Chenoweth is delightful and adds to the show's quirky style. She would be great as a recurring character not necessarily appearing every week but just enough to keep audiences coming back and the rest of the cast the opportunity to display their talents in the spot light.

    My 8th grade daughter and I love Glee, love Kristen Chenoweth and LOVE musicals. We both thought that last nights show was the worst of the season. While I don't look for television to be the moral guidance in my household, this episode implies that drinking before class, aquiring shoplifting skills, and exchanging sexual favors will make you more brave and popular. It was played off as funny and the only consequance was eventually she was booted from the club because... "i'm a tragic figure, you must love me and forgive me". I thought the rest of the club existed simply as a vehicle to showcase Kristen Chenoweth and not necessarily the character and I suspect it would continue that way if she were a permenant figure. It seemed that there were more songs than usual and maybe a bit much. But the final clincher came when I commented (in irony) that the song "Last Name" was a good song for that character and my daughter said, "yeah, but probably not appropriate for a high schooler to sing at a glee show".

    Come on guys. Chenoweth may be a great singer/actress (though I'd never heard of her), but her character on Glee is AWFUL. I really hope she's not around for very long. She and Mrs. Schuester need to be written off, and ASAP. I really like the show and want it to do well but those two characters are real duds.

    I love me some Cheno, but I think that character is better suited to be an occasional guest role. Staying in Lima would mean she didn't get her happy ending. Plus, having Kristin on the show would give the kids fewer opportunities to shine. Brava, though! What a great performance!

    It was a great episode, but the best part of "GLEE" is the clean cut, small town image the show portrays. Why must we throw a dialogue that includes alcohol, and exposed body parts in yet another series, to make it interesting. After all, this is about a high school glee club. The writer has done a great job of keeping drugs, alcohol, and even inappropriate dress out of this program. Why not leave well enough alone.

    While technically you are correct in saying she could go get her GED then onto college etc etc.... wouldnt that detract from the stars of the show? And after all isnt that what the show is supposed to be about, the Glee Club?

    As for the role model part, yes I want my children to grow up drop out of high school 3 credits shy of graduation only to gorw up being a boozed up squatter that makes her money from "a few appointments that she gets from her World Wide Web page" only to go back to school and commit statutory rape in the locker room with the football player that knocked up the cheerleader and is not man enough to admit it all the while passing out alcohol AT SCHOOL to the gay character in an attempt to gain her long lost acceptance and glory.

    Sorry, but any young adult that sees her character as a role model not only has their head screwed on incorrectly but needs a serious psych evaluation.

    I have to disagree with you!! Kristin Chenoweth could be brought along with the show, getting her GED, then going onto college, all the while volunteering until she CAN be a teaching assistant!! Kristin would represent a part of the population of young adults that are forgotten because they quit high school, and see themselves as failures! NOT TRUE!! These young adults that drop out of high school need someone to show them life is NOT over! They too can guide their own destinies and change the direction they are going!

    yes the show is different than anything on tv right now, but in reality thats not saying much. While I agree that the ppl on this show are very talented i find the show trite, self-absorbed, and stupid. Its Fox's answer to (read RIP OFF OF) High School Musical 1-500000 in a feeble attempt to gain teen audiences, namely girls.

    Chenoweth was somewhat entertaining because it was a break from the norm on that show, which is lip-synching over prerecorded tracks by ppl that look like they could possibly still be in high school, however even a MILF cant save this shows male boredom factor which is why it probably will not survive for very long.

    last point: all the commenters on here who are saying things like they should make her a teacher blah blah.... did you even pay attn to the show? The WHOLE reason she was able to return to school was because SHE NEVER FINISHED ergo she CANNOT be a teacher.

    Given it's quirk and camp, Glee needs to maintain fairly precise artistic balance in order to give its diverse following what they want. Chenowith is – no doubt – fantastic, but she would make a terrible, permanent addition to the cast. Judging from last night's show and the comments on this board, Glee would turn into the Chenowith show, or as some hope, Pushing Daisies 2.0. Chenowith would overshadow the current cast and it'd be downhill from there.

    I've known Kristen since before she stepped into show business. She's an incredible person on and off the stage. I'd hate to see her get stereotyped on a TV series. Her talent needs to go to the movies or better yet – Broadway. We all knew she'd make it!! GO CHRISTEN GO!

    What they really need to do is have some network pick up Pushing Daisies and give her back the role that won her the Emmy. That was a great show, a real joy, witty writing, excellent actors/actresses, a different premise than anything else and a look unlike anything else on TV. It was brilliant and short-sighted network execs didn't give it the full chance it deserved. Bring back Pushing Daisies!

    I thought Glee looked pretty funny, but I have not watched an episode because it is on FOX. Since they cancelled TSCC on a cliffhanger, I avoid new shows on thier stations. I wish shows would wrap up at the end of a season unless they have already been picked up for the next season. It would make it easier and safer to get into a new show.

    For example, Dexter does it right. There are small subplots that get continued, but the major story arc is resolved. FOX and ABC are so cancel-happy, I don't plan to check out any of their new shows now, and I don't buy it on DVD when it's called "The Complete Series" for something left unfinished.

    Yes.. Love the show and Love the character. I have only one issue the dubbing is really annoying when the characters sing. There are times that they look like Brittney or Heidi M singing the songs.. Sorry but REALLY REALLY love the show!! I even started calling Wednesday- Glee Wednesday!!

    I don't think having Kristin added to the cast would take away. The lead high school girl was also a broadway lead. She was the lead in Sweet Charity. I think she would be a great add to the show as long as they didn't make it all about her. They should bring her on as a substitute teacher..

    Never heard of the show until last night when my wife introduced me to it. I thought it was great and adds some good variety to night time network Television. Chen did a great job and has an amazing voice. You can't help but love and hate her character. They need to bring her back.

    What! I was shocked when I saw this article title on the CNN homepage. I couldn't stand her character last night – she was creepy and annoying, and served only as a distraction from the rest of the (amazing) show. I couldn't wait for her to be kicked out of the group. I love Glee but I am not at all on board with Kristin Chenoweth. Not a fan.

    Chenoweth is totally awesome. She is the perfect triple threat, sing, dance & act.

    She is the perfect missing link in Glee, but do not cast her in the lead, I believe lea Michele is that.

    Good for a guest star, not for the show. Chenoweth seemed out of place in the cast. Glad Rachel is back in the Glee club now – seemed the show was losing direction.

    Glee is wonderful, as is the music. It's a great break from all of the detective crime shows. And Kristin was great, but only guest appearances as not to overshadow the regular cast.

    I'd go for cameos for Chen – while she is excellent, she does take away from these other performers who are trying to make a name for themselves. But I'm sure she can fit someplace in an occasional role. She IS good in the role she played – I can t think of another actress who could have done it as well as she did.
    I'm sure the writers can come up with something for her (and the producers, some $$$) that doesnt steal away the initial idea of Glee.

    I really like that show! Its fresh and original and so different from the everyday drivel of reality tv!

    i think for the same reason why april shouldn't have stayed in the glee club, is the same reason why chenoweth shouldn't stay on the show "Glee". i love chenoweth but i love these kids too and i think that with a big star like chenoweth on the show, it will take away some of the spotlight off of these talented young actors. guest spots – yes! but i'd prefer she wasn't a regular.

    I could not agree more with these comments. The character and the signing had me hitting rewind not once, but several times during the show last night. Adding Chenoweth would take an above average show to a status of show stopping every week...
