Wednesday night on Twitter, TV writer/director/producer Ryan Murphy announced that Adam Lambert is headed to Glee. Which is 1) Awesome and 2) Strange to realize this hasn't already happened.

"I am thrilled to announce that the super talented Adam Lambert is joining the cast of Glee this fall," Murphy tweeted. Although Lambert or Fox have yet to comment on the news and the series creator didn't offer any further information, this is awesome news for Gleeks and Glamberts alike.

Whether Lambert is joining as a series regular or a one-time guest remains to be seen, but it's safe to say the pop star—who has extensive stage acting experience—will own the show the same way he commanded the stage on American Idol.

And his presence should be a much-needed boost to the show, which recently saw the departure of five series regulars who had been with Glee from the start (the characters of Brittany, Quinn, Mercedes, Puck and Mike are now gone).

Most importantly, Lambert's addition to Glee will finally give the series the opportunity to feature a storyline touching on homosexuality.
