Glee paid tribute to Lady Gaga Tuesday. Perhaps you heard.
Critics and fans loved the Fox show’s episode, which drew praise from the often-imitated, never duplicated (sorry, Christina Aguilera) star as well.
“I love Glee,” the singer told EW. “I went to a musical theatre school, and used to dream that someday the students would be singing my songs.”
Gaga also posted on Twitter about the Glee episode, called “Theatricality,” summing her feelings up simply: “GLEE WAS SO AMAZING! AHHH!!!!”
Pretty much the exact reaction of our critic’s Glee review.

This week’s episode saw New Directions do just that, when the club’s female vocalists, and Kurt, donned some of Gaga’s most memorable looks.
They proceeded to rock the house with “Bad Romance.” But it was Rachel’s duet with Shelby of “Poker Face” what stole the show a little later on.
“I don’t channel Lady Gaga,” cast member and Broadway veteran Idina Menzel said of tackling the showstopper. “I’m just in awe of Lady Gaga.”
That’s high praise, but well-earned. Here’s hoping that Gaga’s health problems improve and she returns to the stage in short, awesome order.
