'Glee': Lea Michele greets and tweets Idina Menzel

Lea Michele tweeted Thursday (Jan. 21): "On set with the lovely Idina Menzel:) So happy she is on our show!"

It was announced back in December that Idina Menzel would guest star -- a booking all "Glee" fans had been eagerly anticipating. We were all hoping she'd be cast as Rachel's biological mom. Instead, Menzel is going to appear as the director of Vocal Adrenaline, the uber-professional rival show choir of "Glee's" New Directions.

Menzel is signed on for the entire back nine -- that is, the final nine episodes of the first season, so it stands to reason that Vocal Adrenaline and the regional show choir competition are a big part of the latter half of season one.

Are you guys excited to see "Wicked" star Idina Menzel flex the golden pipes on "Glee?" The show returns to FOX April 13.
