And Here's To 100 More "Glee" Episodes With The Same 10 Plotlines


Amber Riley Naya Rivera Lea Michele Cory Monteith

100 episodes in, the New Directions are under threat and it’s time for a Glee reunion. It’s also apparently time to dig up the oldest story lines from the original ND class, so that Ryan Murphy and Co. can show just how much the characters have not progressed since high school. The songs were good though, so we’ll let them off the hook.

Amber RileyLea Michele
The battle of the divas... has been going on since season 1.

They had to be good. Not only was this the 100th episode of the Fox show, it was also a chance to pay Finn Hudson (and, by extension, Cory Monteith) one final farewell, it mostly consisted of the cast revisiting old favorites. Two things should come to mind when you read that – Brittany’s Britney Spears hallucination extravaganza and, of course, the one and only, that age-old Glee favorite – Defying Gravity. Both were revisited in the very first fifteen minutes, of course. The Britney act was a sort of Tango-meets-Toxic-meets-burlesque mashup performed by the Unholy Trinity – Britney, Santana and a holier-than-thou Quinn, relishing the chance to get back to her misfit roots. Cool. Great. Seen it before.

Shock Elimination On 'Dancing With The Stars' Leaves The Race Wide Open


Christina Milian Leah Remini Corbin Bleu Jack Osbourne Paris Hilton Elizabeth Berkley Amber Riley Dancing With The Stars

Dancing With The Stars entered week five when it aired on Monday, 14 October, and almost immediately host Tom Bergeron put the pressure on at least half of the contestants as he revealed that "one of our female stars will be eliminated tonight" due to last weeks voting. The pressure was on the ladies to deliver, as the latest instalment saw the remaining celebs remember the 'The Most Memorable Year of Their Life,' and perform a dance routine that explains it best.

With Len Goodman back from London and in his judge's seat after a weeks absence, he, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli cast their critical eye over the remaining contestants danced to the sounds of 1982, all the way to the present day. And before we move on to the dances, now would be a good time to say that one of next season's contestants may have already revealed themselves. Paris Hilton was in the stands cheering on pal Christina Milian, and when asked whether she could give the show a go she said, I can dance, but I can't dance like her! I could try it out one time, maybe."

First up to bat was Corbin Bleu, whose years of choice was 2011. It was chosen as his 'most memorable year'because it was the year his younger sister, Phoenix, was diagnosed with severe scoliosis. The now-12-year-old still has to wear a back brace because of the condition and Bleu dedicated his foxtrot to the girl who is "such an inspiration" to himself. And what a start to get the show under way, as Bruno declared, "You could be the lost child of Fred Astaire and Ben Vereen," before showing him a 10. Len and Carrie gave out 9's each. A Great start to get the ball rolling.

Heather Morris Cory Monteith Amber Riley

Heather Morris, best known for playing Brittany S. Pears in Glee, gave birth to a baby boy on Saturday (28th September). The 26-year-old actress and her long-term partner Taylor Hubbell, a former baseball player, decided to name their son Elijah.

Taylor Hubbell and Heather Morris welcomed a son on Saturday 28th September.

The couple have been dating met in 2008 (despite attending the same high school) and Elijah is their first child, Us Weekly reported. Morris will not be appearing in season five of Glee, so it may be that she decides to focus on family life. This would certainly support what Morris said of her relationship and home life in a 2011 interview with Fitness magazine. The Glee star stated "I want to marry Taylor and have kids with him. I love acting, but if it affects my relationship, then I won't continue."
