Following last night's thrilling 7-4 victory, the New York Yankees are poised to win their 27th World Championship.

As a result, one might refer to their fans as "gleeful."

But the entire country was full of Glee Saturday night... literally! That's because the cast of this Fox hit sung the National Anthem prior to Game Three of the World Series.

Watch and listen below, as Mercedes Jones (Amber) takes the lead:

The life of a celebrity blogger can be depressing at times.

It's hard not to be cynical when you report on the likes of Richard Heene, Amy Winehouse and Michael Lohan.

But it's all worthwhile every Wednesday night at 9 p.m. That's when we see back, turn on Fox and let the cast of Glee etch a one-hour smile on our faces.

The musical comedy is pretty much taking over the pop culture universe, as its cast will sing the national anthem prior to game three of the World Series.

Meanwhile, we can confirm that the show has received permission to use any song in the Madonna catalog - and that ADAM LAMBERT MIGHT APPEAR ON AN EPISODE NEXT YEAR! The news just keeps getting better.

Great Glee Music + Adorable Glee Cast = The Happiest Hour on Television!

Above, three key members of the show's cast cover the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly.

Below, after the jump, one of them (Matthew Morrison) covers the Thong Song. It's an amazing clip. You must watch it.

This is the most gleeful news we've heard all day.

Glee creator Ryan Murphy confirmed to The New York Post this week that the cast of his hit show will tour the country next summer. He said:

"We're going to do what American Idol has done and put the kids on the road. It all equals revenue streams for FOX."

Anyone unsure about whether the show is worth its own tour needs only to watch a clip from last night's episode. Check out Rachel and Finn making like Jordin Sparks and Chris Brown in this "No Air" duet:

Added Murphy:

"Glee's music is not only driving the show, making it the freshest program on broadcast television, but it's also driving revenues. This is a new sort of model. It used to be with TV that you would have the show, then foreign sales, then DVD sales and then syndication sales, but DVD sales have really taken a cut out of syndication. This is a whole new way for Fox to earn revenue on a show."

Will you buy a ticket for the Glee tour?

A couple weeks ago, it was Lea Michelle possibly outsinging Rihanna with a version of "Take a Bow."

This week, it was the William McKinley High School football team pulling an unusual play from its playbook: a pre-fly route dance to Beyonce's "Single Ladies."

Due to its connection to pop culture, as well as its general awesomeness, we'll often treat viewers to a clip from the Fox hit Glee.

On the latest episode, the struggling football team came up with a way to distract its opponent just long enough to score the game-winning touchdown.

Granted, there may have been a few false starts, as well as a delay of game penalty, along the way - but fast forward to the two-and-a-half minute mark below to watch an example of what makes this series so unique and entertaining:

Lea Michele stars on the new Fox hit, Glee.

The unique series is a musical comedy, as various well-known singles are remade by actors and actresses that portray characters in a high school gluee club. It's quite awesome.

To conclude last week's episode, Michele's Rachel Berry belted out a heartfelt version of Rihanna's "Take a Bow" that left us wondering: Might this be better than the original?!?

That may sound sacreligious to some, but watch the video below before you judge. Michele has some serious pipes on her:

We apologize ahead of time to Rihanna for even bringing up this comparison. We know she's been beaten a lot recently and we don't wish to cause her any more pain or suffering.

But the question remains: Which singer's version of this song do you prefer? Rihanna responds to the challenge below:

Whose rendition of "Take a Bow" is better?
