Paltrow will guest star as a substitute teacher when Will Schuester (Morrison) gets the flu. She’ll perform a mash-up of “Singin’ in the Rain” and Rihanna’s “Umbrella” during her guest spot.

Murphy told People, “She had to sort of stamp around with Matt [Morrison] and the kids in a full tank of water for 12 hours. She loved it, actually. She’s just the best.”

Apparently, Murphy convinced Paltrow to guest star on Glee as she’s a “good friend” of his. He explained, “I’ve always loved her when she sang. And I said, ‘You should sing and dance, and show people what you can do.’ She has a movie coming out in December, Country Strong, so she said, ‘Oh, that might work.’”

Paltrow’s kids, daughter Apple, 6, and son Moses, 4 watched her on set. “Her kids came and watched it. She had a ball. She’s the easiest, breeziest gal around, she’s such a professional. She was so prepared, she worked so hard,” Murphy said.

Paltrow is set to perform on Wednesday’s Country Music Awards.

A committed soap opera freak--err, fan, Rolla Bahsous was thrilled to begin her professional writing career writing about everything soaps. But her love for television did not stop at daytime! Rolla is excited to be using her guilty pleasure, following celebrity gossip, at Rolla's had a few encounters with her favorite celebs, including a fingertip brush and a "Take care, sweetheart" from Michael Buble, as well as a flying kiss from Nick Carter - in both incidents Rolla forgot how to breathe. Rolla's University of Toronto degree in communications, political science, and theater is evidence of her diverse interests. When she is not writing, Rolla enjoys her obsession with fairies, coffee shops, and working out, (while watching television, of course!).
