Glee‘s Cory Monteith had the opportunity to meet Sir Elton John at his Academy Awards party this past year. Monteith felt a bit awkward approaching the hit-maker though, so he decided to take a more humorous approach posing as a waiter.
Monteith told Maclean’s magazine, “I asked him, ‘Is there anything I can get you sir? Another beer?’ Maybe I was too convincing, as he just said, ‘No, thank you,’ and never looked up from the chicken.”
Slightly embarrassed, Monteith asked again and received only a shake of the singer’s head. Later, Monteith was formally introduced by Glee co-star Lea Michele, but still admits the meeting didn’t go the way he had hoped.
Monteith explained: “He just gave me a ‘what-the-hell’ look, shook my hand and went back to his dinner. It was one of the most embarrassing experiences of my life.”
Perhaps Sir Elton John isn’t a Glee fan? Seems like it would be a great idea though to have his involvement in a Glee episode! We bet the cast would do a fabulous job with Sir Elton John’s music!
