Next fall, the YouTube sensation from the Philippines will join the hit FOX show in a recurring role. It’s been reported the 18-year-old will play a talented foreign exchange student who brings out the jealousy in Rachel Berry (Lea Michele).

After hearing Charice cover Shania Twain’s “Still the One,” I wouldn’t be surprised to see other Glee characters green with envy as well. I only wish Twain could have heard a performance like this one when she mentored American Idol.

“I know everybody is gonna take this wrong: , I love it, and I understand the point and think it’s great. But I think ‘We Are the World’ is like [Michael Jackson’s] ‘Thriller’ to me. I don’t ever wanna see it touched. I’m a fan of music. I know the plight and everything that’s going on in Haiti. I applaud the efforts: [Millions have been raised] through text [donations] to Haiti. So I appreciate the efforts and everything, but ‘We are the World’ is [musically] untouchable like ‘Thriller’ is untouchable. Some things are just untouchable. It was a valiant effort, but for me, it’s gonna be untouchable.”
