Charice Ranks 7th Among the Best Guest Stars of 'Glee'; Fil-Am Darren Criss Tops the List

Popular US celebrity website Entertainment Weekly (EW) ranked Filipina singing sensation Charice as the seventh �Best Guest Star� on the phenomenal Fox TV show �Glee.�

In the �'Glee': Ranking the Best Guest Stars� article, which counts down the top 15 appearances on the show since its first season, Charice ranked higher than some of music�s finest, such as Britney Spears (9th), Josh Groban (11th), Eve (13th) and Olivia Newton-John (15th).

Charice, who is said to appear in 10 episodes, plays Sunshine Corazon, a Filipina exchange student. She first appeared on the show�s second season pilot episode.

EW said the following about the 18-year old David Foster and Oprah prodigy:

The tiny powerhouse is perhaps the one age-appropriate rival who makes Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) nervous (which is why Dame Berry sent her to a crack house instead of the choir room). As exchange student Sunshine Corazon, she added another ballad to the New Directions repertoire with a powerful version of 'Listen' that was so impressive, it caused Vocal Adrenaline to snatch her up before her first McKinley practice.

�Glee� is already past eight episodes, but Charice�s much-anticipated next appearance remains a top secret. Even so, speculations spawned that the young diva might belt out the Celine Dion classic �Because You Loved Me� in a forthcoming episode.

Occupying the number one spot on EW�s list is another artist with Filipino blood, the newly signed up �Glee� cast member, Darren Criss.

The half-Filipino, half-Irish �Potter Musical� YouTube wonder was described as �the most anticipated guest star� on the show, playing an openly gay student from Dalton Academy, Blaine.

Although his role is being raved about - �a mentor and possible love interest for Kurt (Chris Colfer)" - EW cited, �his rendition of Katy Perry's �Teenage Dream� - which is currently smashing sales records - would make anyone weak in the knees.�
