AMERICAN IDOL to Air Special 90-Minute Episode, GLEE to Air 500th Musical Number

February 12, 2013 by  

Fox will be expanding their primetime lineup on Thursday, March 7th as AMERICAN IDOL will air a special 90-minute installment. And that’s not the only special thing going on that night: GLEE will air its 500th musical performance.

For AMERICAN IDOL, those extra 30 minutes are needed as America will find out who the top 12 finalists are in a live results show.

Over on GLEE’s “Girls (And Boys) on Film” episode,  Fox says “the glee club’s latest assignment is to choose a song from a movie and the members of New Directions sing the hit series’ landmark 500th musical performance with their rendition of the “Animal House” anthem “Shout.” Meanwhile in New York, Santana (Naya Rivera) makes herself at home in the loft a little too quickly for Rachel (Lea Michele) and Kurt’s (Chris Colfer) comfort.” That episode is set to start at 9:30 PM.
