Glee loves a good celebrity cameo, mostly because famous people will go on Glee, cover songs that are already popular and make them even more popular amongst teen girls and midwestern housewives.
It's been known for a while that Ricky Martin would be following in the footsteps of Gwenyth Paltrow, Britney Spears, and Kristin Chenoweth and will be appearing in an upcoming episode of Glee. His episode has already begun filming, and Glee star Matthew Morrison told Access Hollywood that Martin will be performing LMFAO's hit song, "Sexy and I Know It"
This is very fitting for Martin, as his deep v-necks and skin tight leather pants were basically the precursor to LMFAO's leggings and speedos.
Morrison reveals that ricky Martin will play a Spanish teacher and since Morrison's character plays a Spanish teacher, the two will have a "spanish-off." Because that is what Glee does: each week it picks two characters and makes them sing against each other.
Morrison explains how Martin's character was written, "He came onto the show because my [character's] Spanish speaking skills were coming into question, so I started attending night school and he was my teacher...I bring him into the Glee Club and people really love him, he's a great teacher and stuff, so my job is kind of on the line now because the kids really love him."
