With the all-Madonna episode of Glee becoming such a massive hit that it's already spawning a sequel, it's clear that us Gleeks can't get enough of artist-centric episodes! And while the Lady Gaga episode was amazeballs (even though it's only featured a couple of the pop diva's songs), it seems like Glee has a chance to do this with plenty of other icons. We've already suggested a Janet Jackson episode (Ryan Murphy, make it happen!), and now we'd like to suggest another one. How about Prince? Come on, everyone loves the Purple One! Here's our wishlist of Prince songs and performances.
"1999" This is usually the type of rock-heavy song that Glee gives to Finn, but, honestly, he seems better suited to power ballads ("I Can't Fight This Feeling"). So how about letting bad boy Puck take a crack at "1999"? Get him a purple jumpsuit and go nuts!
"Little Red Corvette" With Mr. Schuester now single and turning into a total player, a song like "Little Red Corvette" (about a one-night stand) feels perfect for him! Maybe bring back Kristin Chenowith as the "Little Red Corvette" of the title and let them duet, à la "Alone."
"When Doves Cry" One of the best parts of the all-Madonna episode? Kurt and Mercedes! If they can make a duet of "4 Minutes" sound ridiculously awesome, imagine what they can do with "When Doves Cry."
"Purple Rain" Remember what we said about Finn and power ballads? Get that man an umbrella!
"Let's Go Crazy" A song that just screams, "Get the entire cast together for a Converse-wearing auditorium performance, complete with the school band!" Yep, we've got our episode closer.
Sure, Ryan Murphy said less tributes in Glee Season 3 — but we're holding out hope!
