Kate Hudson To Appear In Glee! But Which Was The Best Celebrity Cameo?

15 August 2012 by

1. Britney Spears

An entire episode was dedicated to the Princess of Pop, with the Glee cast trying their hand at covering some of Britney’s biggest hits. The singer made an appearance throughout, as the object of some rather fanciful Britney-themed hallucinations. 

2. Gwyneth Paltrow

Gwynnie, she of the yoga lifestyle and macrobiotic diets, gave a surprisingly hilarious performance as kooky substitute teacher Holly Holiday. Gwyneth also proved that she has some vocals to reckon with, as she sung covers of hits such as Cee-Lo Green’s “Forget You” and Fleetwood Mac’s “Landslide”.

3. Lindsay Lohan and Perez Hilton

LiLo and Perez teamed up to play satirical versions of themselves, hired as celebrity judges for the glee club nationals. The two are at their best bitching and sniping away at each other - which is what we thought they did in real life anyway.

4. Ricky Martin

If Ricky Martin had been our Spanish teacher, we’d probably have paid more attention in class. Especially if he broke into impromptu performances of “Sexy and I Know It”, as he did in a Season 3 episode of Glee. Who knows, we might even have learnt some Spanish.

5. Josh Groban

The American singer-songwriter is best known for his power ballads and Grammy nominations, but on Glee Josh revealed himself to have a preference for “blousy alcoholics” – whilst referring to himself in the third person.

Kate Hudson is the latest star set to appear on Glee, and series creator Ryan Murphy teased fans yesterday by posting this cheeky picture on Twitter of the actress on set. Kate, who’ll be starring alongside Lea Michelle as dance teacher Cassandra July, looks as foxy as ever in the photo, as she performs a steamy dance move while wearing fishnet tights. Ooh!

As fans of the series know, Kate’s not the only big name to make an appearance on the show – the musical series has made waves with a series of popular and often surprising cameos from Gwyneth Paltrow to Britney Spears. Also on the cards is Sarah Jessica Parker, who's been taking tips from Anna Wintour for her part as a journalist at US Vogue.

Both Kate and SJP will have a lot to live up to – check out the videos below for Grazia’s favourite guest stars, and the gallery above for some more Glee-ful cameos.
