In yet another boost of support for Charice’s return to “Glee,” her “Telephone” sing-off has been named No 6 in the 11 Best Musical Numbers in the series to date.
The list was published by TVLine.com, with the resumption of the second series set to take place tonight, when the second season’s 11th episode is aired after the Super Bowl.
Charice’s character hasn’t been seen since the first episode of the season was broadcast last September, but the impact that the fast growing international singing sensation had was enough to keep “Glee” fans and commentators talking about her.
TVLine.com named Charice’s performance in 6th place, one place ahead of Gwyneth Paltrow’s celebrated rendition of “Forget You” with New Directions, when she appeared as substitute teacher Holly Holliday.
“The casting of Philippines singing sensation Charice created a ton of anticipation during Glee’s summer vacation, and the big payoff arrived rather unexpectedly during a sing-off in the girls’ room, opposite New Directions’ insecure leading lady” the TV website states.
Topping the list is Rachel’s version of “Don’t Rain on My Parade” in the “Sectionals” episode in the first season, with Kurt’s performance of the Beatles’ classic “I Want to Hold Your Hand” in the “Grilled Cheesus” episode in second place. New Direction’s “Don’t Stop Believin’,” which was preformed in the pilot of the first season, is in third place.
She was also chosen as the 7th most popular guest star, ahead of Britney Spears, in EW’s list of the 15 Most Popular Guest Appearances on “Glee“.
