Sunshine Corazon has been gone too long from “Glee.” As a matter of fact “Glee” has been gone too long from Fox. But fans of both will be rewarded Tuesday (April 19), when the show gets back to the action after a brief hiatus — action featuring the return of Gwyneth Paltrow and one of our favorite Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) nemeses, Sunshine Corazon — played ably and cute-as-a-button-ly by Charice Pempengco.
Ever since Sunshine and Rachel had their impromptu bathroom diva-off in the season 2 premiere, the Filipino singing sensation — recruited away by rival club “Vocal Adrenaline,” has been absent from the show. But tonight she’ll be back to sing “All By Myself” and ask the Glee-sters for some help raising money for another under-the-rader club at McKinley High.
“I would love a duet with Mercedes,” said Charice in a Monday (April 18) conference call. “I think she’s an amazing singer. ‘And I’m Telling You’ is the greatest thing I’ve heard.”
And while she didn’t divulge many details about the on-screen action, Charice did share that she feels a kinship with “Glee” regular Naya Rivera (Santana), who she calls her “favorite” cast member.
In this clip, Charice shares some more behind-the-scenes details about her return:
