Episode 15 of the Emmy Award winning musical drama TV show Glee aptly titled The Power of Madonna, for me was their best episode so far. As the title suggest, it was their tribute episode to music icon Madonna.
For the first time in the series everyone had their equal camera exposure and promises exciting future episodes. Some of the highlights of the episodes was — three couples explore losing virginity issues and sings “Like A Virgin” with Finn finally losing his virginity, Kurt and Mercedes join the Cheerios and does “Four Minutes”, Jesse St. James enrolls at McKinley and joins New Directions (which for me was a bit fishy!), William getting a divorce and lastly Sue Sylvester who was a self-confessed Madonna fanatic had her own “Vogue” video which is now being watched over and over by Gleeks (Glee fans) all over the world.
Here is the summary of the episode:
Mr. Schuester is concerned that the girls in the glee club are being disrespected and bullied by the guys. Looking to Madonna and her musical message of equality as inspiration, he challenges the entire team to choose Madonna songs as their next assignment in the hopes that the girls embrace her strength, independence and confidence and that the guys will see the error of their misogynistic ways. The glee club takes the assignment to heart as they perform some of Madonna’s greatest hits, including “Express Yourself” and “Like A Prayer.” Meanwhile, Kurt and Mercedes give Sue a vote of confidence with a makeover that is definitely in “Vogue.”
