Naya Rivera helped make this week’s Michael Jackson tribute episode one of Glee’s smoothest events… But things are about to get muy caliente when Ricky Martin mambos his way to McKinley High as part of the hit dramedy’s Spanish-themed edition.
In next week’s episode, the 40-year-old Puerto Rican singer/actor will guest star as David Martinez, a teacher at a night school that Matthew Morrison’s character attends when his abilities as a Spanish teacher are questioned.
Martin’s musically inclined character will help the New Directions kids complete a sizzling Spanish singing assignment given to them by Will (Morrison).
As he blends in musical performance with Rachel and her friends, David becomes a potential rival for Will’s position at McKinley High.
In a video preview for the episode, Martin calls his Glee experience “one of the favorite moments of my career.”
During that same episode, Sue has big news to announce as she decides to have a child, but people doubt her motherly instinct. Meanwhile, Rachel spills the beans to Kurt and Mercedes on Finn’s marriage proposal, and Mercedes has love complications of her own.
“The Spanish Teacher” will air Tuesday, February 7 at 8/7c on FOX.
