Crowds at London's O2 arena were in a fit of Glee over a surprise performance from Gwyneth Paltrow, aka Glee's Holly Holiday, on Wednesday, June 29, 2011.
Lea Michele (Rachel) actually tweeted the news just before the show and then Paltrow took the Glee Live! stage toward the end, interrupting Naya Rivera (Santana) to challenge her to a sing-off, according to the Daily Mail.
Paltrow didn't hit the show on her own, however. "Just took four seven-year-olds to Glee live London. Somebody pass me something vaguely hallucinogenic," she tweeted. Wowser!
Glee's 38-year-old hot teacher also took the stage with Glee Live! when the kids were still stateside, performing the same tune for East Rutherford on June 16. One of the two performances is sure to make it into the upcoming concert movie, Glee Live! 3D.
While Paltrow gave British Glee fans some face time, it sounds like she's been all over the place. According to her Twitter feed, Tuesday she hit up Beyonce's secret record release party, where she not only ran into Glee's Kevin Hale, but also "got to meet Adele (swoon). And Tinie Tempah. And his hot cousin!"
On Saturday, June 25, she was "Back (expletive) stage" at the Glastonbury 2011 music fest, where her hubby Chris Martin took the stage with his band, Coldplay. That may have been where she got her invite to Beyonce's secret party: Paltrow hung out with Jay-Z in the pit while Beyonce closed out the fest on June 27.
Two days earlier, it was Kings of Leon in Hyde Park and before that, it was a book signing at the Taste Festival in Regents Park.
"Ah, the British summer! Freezing! Boiling! Freezing! At least I'm prepared for menopause," Paltrow tweeted this morning, but SheKnows doubts she'll be up for bouncing around like she has been when menopause really hits!
