In the very short time it's been around, Glee has already won a Golden Globe, a SAG Award, a Peabody and on Saturday night, the show picked up a GLAAD Media Award for Outstanding Comedy Series.

But does any of that even compare to learning that Madonna is a fan of the show?

On Friday, Madge released a statement praising tomorrow night's all-Madonna episode...

Describing the episode as "brilliant on every level," the Queen of Pop also gushed to Us Weekly, "The entire cast was amazing. They're all so talented. I especially loved Sue Sylvester and Kurt Hummel's characters."

Jane Lynch says it doesn't get any better than that. "It's a peak experience," she told me at the GLAAD Awards. "Chris [Colfer] was shaking, going, 'Look! Look!' We hugged each other and we held each other closely for just a moment."

It's almost too much for Colfer to take in at once. "The fact that she watched the show," he said. The fact that she watched the show with Lola and I'm one of her favorite characters and mentioned me by name in her statement? I don't' know where to begin.

"How do I respond? It doesn't get any better than that. If I'm ever down, I'm just going to remember, Madonna knows who you are."

The cast and crew didn't even want to think of what would have happened if Madonna didn't approve. "If she didn't like it, I don't what would have happened," Kevin McHale said. "I think [show cocreator] Ryan Murphy would have gone into a dark room and never come out," he laughed. "Thank god that she likes it."
