Glee gets into the “Yuletide” spirit with a Christmas episode and album, plus a Susan Boyle cameo
Last season the cast of Glee gave us a little bit of holiday cheer with their cover of Wham’s “Last Christmas”, but this year they’re going all out festive with a Christmas album and a holiday episode titled “Yuletide”!
First, let’s talk about the album, set to release on November 16, and now available for pre-order on iTunes and Amazon. With covers of 12 holiday classics and a special appearance by k.d. lang, Entertainment Weekly has leaked the full track listing along with who’s singing the leads on which song. Get all the details below, but beware of the relationship-related spoilers you may stumble upon by seeing who is singing with who!

What relationship-related spoilers might I have been referring to, gleeks? Well, I’m thinking that “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” is a very romantic choice for Kurt and new character Blaine – could Blaine (played by Darren Criss) actually be the much-rumoured boyfriend for our boy Kurt? I sure hope so!Susan Boyle, the singer of Britain’s Got Talent fame, will be guest starring in the episode! No concrete details are known about her appearance yet, but a source close to Boyle has said that, “Susan’s appearance will be great fun for all fans of the series.”
