"Glee's" promising season 3 debut (storyline! character development!) looks to keep building on Tuesday (Sept. 27) when
Idina Menzel returns as Rachel Berry's (
Lea Michele's) mom, one-time Vocal Adrenalin coach Shelby Corcoran. The actress is set for a multi-episode arc, but kicks off her appearance as McKinley High gears up for "West Side Story" rehearsals.
Watch as mother and daughter share a touching reunion courtesy of a totally touching "Somewhere" duet:
We're happy for Rachel, but equally happy that our mother didn't surprise us on-stage when we were trying out for "Grease" in 11th grade.
