Charice Becomes a Gleek

A few weeks ago, we didn’t know who this girl Charice Pempengco was, and now she’s becoming a household name! She just performed on Oprah, has a new album out, and is now joining Glee!

The popstar, who is originally from the Philippines, will play a series regular on the hit TV show on Fox. Her manager confirmed the news to The Philippines Inquirer, saying, "And not just as a guest, but as part of the cast in a new season."

Charice was reportedly sought out because the show's theme and the cast's age group fits her.

We’re excited to see her join show! She was amazing on Oprah, and we can’t wait to see if her acting chops are just as good. Tune in tonight for the highly-anticipated Lady Gaga
