Emma, major congrats on winning this FOTM and props for making this spot active during the hiatus with your Dream Cover and Quote contests! Here's the interview, enjoy :]
1. Congrats on winning, Emma! How do you feel?
Honestly I feel really flattered. I love the fans at the Glee spot and I'm glad they seem to like me too!
2. What was the first episode of Glee you watched and how did you get into this show?
I watched the Pilot first. I saw previews for it over the summer, but I didn't get caught up until November. I think the first 8 episodes had already aired at that point. I'm a singer/choir person myself so I knew I'd love the show from the previews alone.
3. What's so unique about Glee in your opinion? What's the thing that makes it different from other shows?
I'm a singer/choir person myself so I knew I'd love the show from the previews alone.
Glee is special because its a show full of mainly unfamiliar faces. Other than Jane Lynch, the majority of the actors are pretty unknown. It's amazing that they are all so amazingly talented. They seem to be great friends. The musical numbers are amazing of course, as well.
4. Is Glee your #1 favorite show? If not, which one is?
Since the very first episode back in 2000 :D Luke/Lorelai and Rory/Jess are my OTPs!
Gilmore Girls is my #1. Always has been, always will be. Since the very first episode back in 2000 :D Luke/Lorelai and Rory/Jess are my OTPs!
5. Would you change something about Glee or would you leave it exactly how it is?
I think that Finn and Rachel have too many solos. Rachel's great, but I'd love to see the rest of the characters sing more. I also definitely wish Matt, Brittany, Mike and Santana had bigger roles on the show.
6. Lots of promos have been released for the back nine. What are you most excited for?
I am dying to see Neil Patrick Harris and his sing-off with Will. NPH is amazing and I think it's really great that he'll be on the show.
7. Imagine you're Ryan Murphy for one day; what would happen in your dream Glee episode?
My other dream is that Laura Bell Bundy would come on the show as Rachel's new Glee Club rival.
My dream was to see NPH on the show, but that's already happening! My other dream is that Laura Bell Bundy would come on the show as Rachel's new Glee Club rival.
- Puck and Rachel
- Artie and Brittany (I do for real want them to happen)
- Matt and Mike or Santana and Brittany
- Vitamin D
It's in the background and totally adorable. Hence why I ship BA!
- In Vitamin D when Will announces the teams for sectionals, Artie says, "It's gonna be a cake walk!" And tries to high five Brittany, but she doesn't notice. It's in the background and totally adorable. Hence why I ship BA!
-"That was the most offensive thing I've seen in 20 years of teaching, and that includes an elementary school production of 'Hair.'"-Sue (Showmance)
- Somebody to Love and It's My Life/Confessions
- It's My Life/Confessions
- Brittany and Figgins
9. Least favorites:
- Rachel and Finn (I'm sure most people think W/E is my least favorite, but RF bugs me the most for sure)
- Kurt/Finn (I don't like how Kurt treated Rachel because of his feelings for Finn)
- Finn and Puck (obvious reasons)
- Pilot, definitely.
All the lines in the show are great!!
- I think it's super awkward in Wheels when Artie says he still has use of his penis.
- All the lines in the show are great!!
- "Thong Song," "Gold Digger," "You're Having my Baby"
- "You're having my baby" is so awkward
- I suppose Ken, but I like all the characters!
- I really like them all, but if I had to choose I guess Matthew.
10. This or That:
Terri or Sue?
Both! Sue if I have to choose. T, S and Figgins are the funniest characters!
Will&Emma or Puck&Quinn?
Brittany or Santana?
Acafellas or The Rhodes Not Taken?

Glee guys or Glee girls?
Emma or Will?
11. Dream performances:
Artie and Brittany?
I would love an Artie dream sequence where they do an amazing choreographic number to Chris Brown's "Forever." Artie would sing at the same time. I think they'd do amazing dance numbers together. They need to get together immediately!!!!!

14. What do you think, how many seasons will Glee last and how many would be ideal for you?
4 I think. Otherwise it would be too long to stay in high school.
15. Who would you like to guest star on Glee and why?
Laura Bell Bundy. She's really talented and has plenty of Broadway experience. She'd make an amazing frenemy for Rachel.
16. What do you like the most on this spot and what would you change if you could?
I love all the contests. I wish people would search for picks before posting repeats.
17. Thoughts on Glee kids doing Gaga songs?
I'm not a Gaga fan but I suppose I'm happy for Kristin and Shandi xD
18. We've noticed you don't like one of the most loved characters and couples; Emma and Will&Emma; can you give us the reasons why you dislike them?
Emma grew on me a lot when she reacted so maturely to Terri's fake pregnancy. Though I think her almost marrying Ken was really selfish.
I thought Emma was a little crazy in the pilot, and so I never started shipping her with Will. It would have been easier for me to ship them after Will was already divorced. I just think they're overrated. Sorry!
Emma grew on me a lot when she reacted so maturely to Terri's fake pregnancy. Though I think her almost marrying Ken was really selfish. I promise Emma's getting better for me! But when people try to make me like something I'm hesitant about, I tend to react the opposite way. Emma's very cute and clever and I think she'll grow a lot as a person on the show. I look forward to that!
19. Who do you think deserves to be the next Glee FOTM and why?
I think Kaidi, Anna or Mckena deserves it next. They are great contributors!
20. Finally, any last words?
