Ex-Idol Makes Impassioned Plea To Ryan Murphy With “I Wanna Be On Glee”

Season 9 semifinalist Todrick Hall's time on "American Idol" was short (he was voted off that same awful night when Lilly Scott, Alex Lambert, and Katelyn Epperly all left), but now he's making a serious play to get back on the Fox network, with his hilarious new viral video, "I Wanna Be On Glee."

In the very ambitious video, the over-the-top singer (who actually has an extensive theater background) makes a pretty convincing argument why he'd be a fabulous addition the "Glee" cast. In the course of four minutes, he takes a phone call from Rachel Berry, sings at Regionals with a full choir, and even undergoes a slushy attack, all to get "Glee" producer Ryan Murphy's attention.

Really, if there was ever an "Idol" contestant suited for "Glee," it's Todrick. He quite flamboyantly covered Queen's "Glee" staple "Somebody To Love" on "Idol," along with Tina Turner's "What's Love Got To Do With It" and Kelly Clarkson's "Since U Been Gone," so he knows his way around a pop hit remake. He was also in "High School Musical 2," the arguable predecessor to "Glee." Plus, he obviously knows how to take a slushy in the face, and as he says in the video's intro: "I can sing, act, and I have a consistent triple-pirouette."
