Lea Michele Will ‘Let It Go’ on Glee’s Final Season

The cold never bothered Glee anyway.

Lea Michele will sing “Let It Go,” the hit song from Disney’s Frozen, during the final season of the Fox program, Entertainment Weekly confirms after the actress hinted at the performance on Twitter Friday night.

It’s a fitting choice considering Idina Menzel, the song’s original singer, played the mother of Michele’s character on the show.

The performance will also be the second time in the next few months that a piece of the hit animated movie will come to television. Once Upon a Time, which airs on the Disney-owned ABC, will feature a Frozen storyline starring Georgina Haig as Elsa in its upcoming fourth season — though producers warn not to expect any musical numbers.

After Pregnancy Tweet, Lea Michele’s Publicist Says Her Twitter Account Hacked

Lea Michele on Friday became the second Glee star to have her Twitter account hacked in as many days.

“Before this gets out to the media, I would like to announce to my fans that I am pregnant #BabyBoy,” read a message posted on her Twitter account. But Michele was hacked, the 27-year-old’s publicist confirmed to TIME. The publicist, however, did not touch upon the pregnancy question.

Michele’s tweet was met with skepticism by many after another Glee star, Chris Colfer, appeared on Thursday to tweet that he had been fired from the popular FOX show. But the show’s producers also said that Colfer was a hacking victim.

“We’ve been alerted that Chris Colfer’s Twitter account has been hacked,” read a statement to TIME from 20th Century Fox Television. “Rumors of his dismissal from Glee could not be further from the truth. We love Chris and look forward to working with him again this season.”

"Rumors of his dismissal from Glee could not be further from the truth."

Fox denied Glee star Chris Colfer was leaving the show just minutes after a tweet from his verified Twitter account said he was “let go” from the cast, saying the actor was a hacking victim.

In a statement to TIME, 20th Century Fox Television said: “We’ve been alerted that Chris Colfer’s Twitter account has been hacked. Rumors of his dismissal from Glee could not be further from the truth. We love Chris and look forward to working with him again this season.”

Colfer’s manager separately told The Hollywood Reporter that Colfer’s account had been hacked and that the actor was on a mid-Atlantic flight without access to Internet.

The initial tweet set off an Internet firestorm–it was shared more than 6,000 times within an hour after it was tweeted–and prompted media outlets to report he was leaving.

The tweet came ahead of what Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy has said will be the show’s sixth and final season and nearly a year after another show star, Cory Monteith, died.
