Grab that karaoke machine and turn up the music—Glee is planning a party!

The 100th episode is just around the corner and Glee's creator Ryan Murphy has been recruiting the series' best and brightest alumni to return to McKinley for this special event. The Fox hit series has already snagged a number of RSVP's to the party of the season, but now one very special musically-inclined actress will also be returning: Kristin Chenoweth!

Murphy tweeted wednesday that the Broadway bombshell will be back to reprise her hilarious role of April Rhodes, a fallen star from Will's (Matthew Morrison) high school glee club days.

Chenoweth tweeted that she was "very excited" to be reunited with her Glee family next years. When we last heard from April she was starring in the hit Broadway production of Crossrhodes: The April Rhodes Story. Congrats, girl! Chenoweth's character has always brought a fun and dynamic energy to the show so we can't wait to see what she does this time.

The 100th episode extravaganza is set to air Tuesday, March 18 and Chenoweth will be joining a handful of fan favorite characters in this musically remixed hour. Murphy revealed that all of the original gleeks have received an invite to the episode and on Tuesday it was revealed that Amber Riley, Mark Salling,  and Harry Shum Jr. would be taking part.

Fans were also thrilled to learn Wednesday afternoon that Heather Morris will also be returning to the auditorium stage as the always entertaining Brittany S. Pierce.  No news yet on if Lord Tubbington will be returning, but let's all keep our fingers crossed!

Glee airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. on Fox.
