Confirmed: Ricky Martin, Gloria Estefan joining Glee

Who’s turning up the heat? Glee is! We can officially confirm Ricky Martin and Gloria Estefan are heading to McKinley High.

The whispers recently began that Ricky Martin and Gloria Estefan were heading to Glee to bring their Latin flare to the gang.

Well, the whispers have turned into an official confirmation.

Glee‘s executive music producer, Adam Anders, confirmed the big news that will certainly have fans jumping with glee.

Anders recently told, “We just announced Ricky Martin and Gloria Estefan for a Spanglish episode.”

Now that sounds muy caliente!

Anders added, “We’re just starting the planning, so I don’t know (which songs the pair will sing). I wouldn’t tell you anyway!”

Oh, that sneaky little devil.

According to, here’s what Anders was willing to spill: A mash-up of Martin’s “Livin’ la Vida Loca” and Estefan’s “Conga” would be en fuego.

Okay, he didn’t say “en fuego,” but he did reference that it would be cool. Too bad we can’t mark that mash-up in the official column just yet

As for the duo’s roles, it looks like the earlier reports of Gloria Estefan playing Santana’s mother are still on target, while Ricky Martin will teach the kids to say “hola” as the school’s new Spanish teacher (don’t get too excited, he’s there for just the episode at this point).

With Santana’s world being blown wide open after she recently “came out,” and her grandmother not being too supportive, it will be interesting to see the route Glee takes with her mother.

Glee just aired its Christmas episode which means it’s holiday hiatus time for the show. We know, it’s hard to get through a month without Glee, but we can do it. Just think of the episodes we get to come back to Jan. 17.

We want to hear from you — what do you think of the new guest stars heading to Glee?

Will you watch Ricky Martin and Gloria Estefan on Glee?
