Chris Colfer Debuts 'Lucky Star' Ahead of Tonight's 'Glee' (Which He Wrote)!

Tonight’s The Night — We get to see Chris Colfer‘s episode of Glee!

The 23-year-old entertainer will not only be acting and singing alongside Academy Award nominee June Squibb, but he also penned the episode! In a recent chat with Billboard, Chris opened up about it all. Check it:

On working with June: “I cannot wait for the world to see and hear her sing. She is incredible. She made me cry. At 83 years old, she was on her feet 14 hours a day, keeping up with the singing and the dancing. She just blew everyone away. I don’t think she even messed up a line once. She was just perfect from the get-go. She sings on “Memory” and then on “Lucky Star.” “Lucky Star” was so difficult for me to sing! She sounds so much better than I do on it. I’m so excited for people to hear those.”

On “Lucky Star”: “When we do ‘Lucky Star,’ it’s because Kurt has joined an assisted living home’s production of Peter Pan. In the story, he convinces them to update the production. He convinces them to use modern music to tell the story. So when he’s singing “Lucky Star” he’s singing about Neverland. The only thought I had was I wanted the music to fit. I didn’t want anything to seem arbitrary. I wanted it to be there for a reason.”

On taking on a Madonna song: “It definitely is one of my favorites. I’m a big Madonna fan. It was a win-win. I was really happy with June and my version. I convinced her if the song is successful we could go on the road together.”
