Glee fans, get ready to go Gaga! Following in the footsteps of Glee‘s Madonna-inspired episode, tonight ‘s show will not only remake Lady Gaga’s greatest pop hits like “Bad Romance” and “Poker Face,” but will also showcase the best of the chanteuse’s signature styles. “This episode is a tribute to her genius,” Lou Eyrich, costumer for the show, dishes to “The costumes are not replicas; we wanted it [to] look like the kids made them.” So what will the cast wear? “Rachel [Lea Michele] wears two outfits,” Eyrich tells InStyle. “The first is inspired by Gaga’s Kermit the Frog dress: She goes through her stuffed animals at home and staples all of them to her dress. The second is like the dress Gaga wore with the big silver mirrored triangle.” As for Gaga’s memorable bubble dress? “It was really heavy,” Eyrich admits of Tina’s outfit. “And it made a lot of noise.” Though all wardrobe items were designed to have a handmade look and feel, Eyrich says that she didn’t even attempt to recreate Alexander McQueen’s 10-inch ‘Armadillo’ platforms. “I’m a huge McQueen fan so I wanted to do them justice,” Eyrich says. “We tried to buy them [for Kurt (Chris Colfer)], but we would have needed a woman’s size 13. They don’t make them that big.” To see all of the stellar outfits, watch Glee tonight on Fox at 9/8c or check out for more information. —David Yi

I’m no fan of Gaga, but I am still looking forward to this episode so much. Still, how are we supposed to believe that high school students made these outfits?

Glee and TrueBlood renewed my addiction to TV. Glee ROCK!!… and I will followed them from Madonna to Gaga and beyond!

“R” – even if you don’t find Gaga’s music impressive or tollerable, you have to admit she has been genius in how she markets herself.

I think she’s great at using shock value and outrageousness to bring attention to her act – I don’t think there is anything remotely original about her music or genius about her image.

I’ll tell you what I don’t find tolerable: Glee.

Gaga is talented, but not a genius. Strip her of her artifice and she’s the following:
an average singer,
excellent piano player,
horrible dancer.
