The hit television musical series Glee announced on April 6 that it will devote an episode to pop star Lady Gaga's music, extending the show from 30 to 90 minutes.

The show is scheduled to air on April 26 in the US.

The storyline will involve Mr. Schuester teaching the New Directions glee club "a valuable lesson about self-acceptance and embracing what makes you unique through the music of Lady Gaga."

Gaga's recent single "Born This Way" will be sung on the show to illustrate the theme.

The cast performed "Poker Face" in a previous episode last year as well as an excerpt from "Telephone": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K1-jqPXGTSQ

Several artists have not allowed Glee to interpret their music, including Bjork and Kings of Leon, which set off a feud with the show's creator Ryan Murphy who has since explained he understands.
