Between the hit show, the iTunes-topping singles, and the live tour, it sometimes seems like the Glee kids are an unstoppable force of nature. But this past week, the song-and-dance superstars came face to face with their own personal Kryptonite: tonsillitis! EW reports that production was canceled on Friday after several members of the cast fell sick. Unfortunately, they were right in the middle of shooting a big musical number for the highly anticipated post-Super Bowl episode, which will feature guest star Katie Couric, the gang's version of Thriller, and a Destiny's Child duet by potential boyfriends Kurt (Chris Colfer) and Blaine (Darren Criss).
EW isn't saying which cast members caught the bug, but a few of them spilled the beans online. On her Tumblr, Dianna Agron (Quinn) posted a picture of a sick teddy bear with the caption: "Note to self…should have gotten a flu shot. In bed, hoping that medicine, soup, my computer and a marathon of movies will be the cure." Meanwhile, Kevin McHale (Artie) tweeted that he's "so over being sick. This whole staying in bed thing seemed fun for the 1st few days haha. On the mend!" As of Saturday night, according to his Twitter, McHale was still bedridden and watching Family Feud.
A few Glee kids obviously didn't catch the bug -- and seemed grateful for the break! Mark Salling posted a Twit pic of himself playing Frisbee, with the caption "Nothin like a little d golf on an unexpected day off." (That's "disc golf," for those of you who aren't Ultimate Frisbee fans.) And Lea Michele (Rachel) took the phrase "day off" to heart, tweeting, "What a beautiful relaxing day! Went on an awesome hike and just (got) a massage! So happy it's the weekend! :)"
Glee shooting resumes on Monday, although the big Super-Bowl number shoot will be rescheduled for January.
