Jan 17, 2012 at 9:00 a.m. ET

So much is happening in Glee's winter return, we can barely contain our excitement. Trust us, you won't want to miss a moment!

Glee returns this week, and after bringing you report-after-report of guest stars and story lines, we couldn't be happier to finally see them play out.

On this week's winter return of Glee, "Yes/No," NeNe Leakes makes her long-awaited debut as McKinley High's synchronized swim coach, Roz Washington.

She'll be part of the story that features Sam's quest to win Mercedes back by joining Washington's team. We'll also be treated to a Grease homage when Sam busts out his version of "Summer Nights."

Elsewhere, Mr. Schue prepares to pop the question to Emma and Helen Mirren brings her voice to the inner dialogue of a character who is being kept a secret at this point.

Check out a preview of "Yes/No" and prepare to gleek out...


Fox officially boasts "Yes/No" as, "NeNe Leakes (Real Housewives of Atlanta) makes a special guest appearance. When Will tries to plan a special surprise for Emma, he enlists the glee club to help him sweep her off her feet. Meanwhile, Becky sets her sights on Artie, and Finn makes an announcement about his life plans after high school that surprises the glee club in the all-new "Yes/No" episode of Glee airing Tuesday, Jan. 17 (8:00-9:00 p.m. EST/PST) on Fox."

We want to say Helen Mirren will be voicing Santana after all her struggles lately, but that's a bit too obvious and the word on the Glee street is that it's a shocker.

Speaking of Santana, we can't wait to see Gloria Estefan hit the scene when she debuts as the newly outed cheerleader's mom.

What are your wishes for the rest of Glee's season three?
