Coldplay full of Glee

It's the TV show that’s quite literally taking the world by storm, (though when we say literally we don’t mean literally, unless we were talking about a show called The World’s Worst Weather Disasters, which we’re not....), anyway Glee is really popular, especially with those in the know, mainly tweens who like a sing-along with their dollop of comedy and a twist of beautiful people.

Each week on the US show the drama groups have a crack at covering songs from one particular artist (is that right? We’ve never seen it). Big names who have given the OK for their back catalogue to be camped up have included Madonna and er, Madonna. Now Coldplay will be getting the Glee treatment.

It was reported that Coldplay had originally put their vegan filled shoes down, refusing to give the show permission to use their songs. But in the most dramatic u-turn since Maureen from Driving School passed her test at the 18th attempt the band have now said yes, they are happy for Glee to ruin their material. The show's Ryan Murphy told Hollywood Reporter: ‘At the beginning, a lot of people didn't know what we were and asked to see pages. Coldplay and Bryan Adams were really the only rejections. But Coldplay called a week ago and said, 'We're sorry, you can have our catalogue'.’
