Glee returned to TV screens across America last night for its fifth season and while the episodes leading up to the tribute episode in memory of Cory Monteith.

The show also released a tribute banner in honour of the special episode which you can see further down the page. Naya Rivera though has tweeted about how Adam Lambert has now began filming his part on the show.

It has been known that Adam Lambert would feature on Glee during the shows fifth season but it was unknown as to what role he would take.

Rumours have been spreading that he will be performing Lady Gaga and some even went as far as to suggesting he’d perform a Katy Perry/Lady Gaga mash up but those rumours appear to have been squashed after Adam Lambert was pictured in a wig similar to Lady Gaga’s ‘Applause’ performance at the MTV VMAs.

glee-band-1Glee star Naya Rivera took to Twitter 20 hours or so ago saying how she was at work with Adam Lambert, Demi Lovato and Lea Michelle:

The biggest mystery surrounding Adam Lambert is the role he’ll play on the hit Fox show. Unfortunately we don’t have any concrete information to go by but rumours had suggested he would play a drag queen – those apparently were put to bed and instead it was mentioned that he would be Kurt Hummel’s enemy but that was suggested quite a while ago.


With the death of Cory Monteith in July the scripts and plans will have been rewritten so news beyond the third episode is very sketchy.

The main thing we do know though is that the fourth episode in season 5 is called ‘A Katy or a Gaga’ so if that is the episode that Adam Lambert is due to appear in then we can expect to see him perform a song by either artist.

This past weekend Adam Lambert performed with Queen at the iHeartRadio Festival in Las Vegas. Watch a clip of the performance below.
