‘Glee’ season 5 notes: Lea Michele’s new song; Chris Colfer’s animated role

The wait begins -With “Glee” still on hiatus until February 25, now seems like the best time possible to dish out the updates when it comes to the show.

A new network? – We want to start with a brief little update for our Canadian friends so that they are not confused about the show’s return. Thanks to the move to Tuesday night, the show is no longer going to air on its previous network Global (which airs “NCIS” at that time period). Instead, new episodes will air for the rest of the season on City, who have already started an advertising campaign for the show. We would assume that Global may have figured something out if “Glee” was a top-ten show, but it’s not what it once was. The phenomenon has died down, and the diehard fans are the only ones still watching now.

RobodogBig Chris Colfer news – Are you ready to see Chris take some of his talents to the big screen? Well, the difference between this and what he did on “Struck By Lightning” is that this time, he is getting animated. Colfer confirmed today that he will voice the main character in “Robodog,” an upcoming feature film for the production company Marza. Ron Perlman (“Sons of Anarchy”) is also going to be a member of the voice cast.

While this film has yet to even start production yet, we imagine that we’re looking at something (based on the image that Chris posted on Twitter) that is not going to be in any way similar to “RoboCop.”

Hear Lea’s “What Is Love?” – Lea Michele has no problem letting you listen to some of her new music early. Take a listen below at the aforementioned song, which is her fourth track released online off of “Louder,” the new album that she is dropping on March 4. Her lead single is still “Cannonball,” but she’s trying her best to give you a number of reasons to be excited.

Take a listen to this song below.
