Learn all about what Whoopi Golberg is bringing to the Glee family!

Goldberg will guest star on Glee beginning May 1st. Her character (who flies into Ohio for the auditions) is rumored to be staying around for a three-episode arc on the hit FOX show.

Whoopi’s character is named Carmen Tibideaux, and she’s not thinking too much about family at all. In fact, Carmen is a fierce judge that both Rachel (Lea Michele) and Kurt (Chris Colfer) must face as they audition for NYADA.

Landing a spot at NYADA is both Rachel and Kurt’s big dream, and a great deal of Glee season 3 has focused on this.

Don’t forget that Glee returns from it’s winter hiatus on Tuesday, April 10th.
