There is a new diva in Glee-town, and he has better eyeliner skills than you.
We're talking of course about the one and only American Idol alum Adam Lambert, who joins the Fox series when it returns from its awful baseball hiatus on Thursday, Nov. 7.
In these first look photos, Lambert's character, who has the awesome name of Elliot "Starchild" and makes us hate our parents for not naming us that, is auditioning for Kurt's (Chris Colfer) band, and just based on his stage presence we'd hire him in a heartbeat. And it looks like he'll have a duet with Santana (Naya Rivera), which, personally, is a song we absolutely cannot wait to hear.
In the Nov. 14 episode, Glee calls for the end of twerking, but based on these pics, there will be some twerking happening before that dance is laid to rest. Plus, Kurt visits a tattoo shop?! Our advice: If you are getting Chinese characters, make sure you know exactly what they mean. What you think reads "Sing Freely" could actually be translated into "Chapped Lips." Not that we're speaking from personal experience or anything.
Check out the sneak peek photos and let's all wish harder for baseball to be over quickly so we can get back to regular Glee TV. And in case you missed the promo for "A Katy or a Gaga," which has the first footage of Lambert singing "Marry the Night," watch the video below! Meanwhile, we're calling up our parents to talk about this lack of Starchild naming business. Unacceptable.
