COLDPLAY have done a U-turn and allowed their music to be used by hit TV show Glee.Producers are now busy working on a special episode of the American series featuring the band's tracks.
CHRIS MARTIN and Co have also apologised to Glee's creator RYAN MURPHY for turning him down in the first place.
I can't help feeling their revised decision to now hand over their music must be financially motivated.
Unless Chris's wife GWYNETH PALTROW had a word in his ear.
Let's be honest - it's a show for the girls and the gays.
On paper you can understand why the camp high school musical drama would not seem an obvious choice for Coldplay.
But the series has been a smash hit all over the world and the spin-off albums - three so far - have sold by the truckload.
Writer Ryan had approached the band after the success of a one-off MADONNA special to see if he could do a Coldplay episode too.
But they said no way.
Canadian soft rocker BRYAN ADAMS also turned down the show - and has so far stuck to his guns.
Ryan explained: "At the beginning a lot of people didn't know what we were and asked to see scripts.
"I refused because I didn't want to set the precedent of them having any involvement.
"My favourite rejection was from Bryan Adams.
"Coldplay and Bryan Adams were really the only rejections.
"But Coldplay called a week ago and said, 'We're sorry, you can have our catalogue'."
I can't say the telly musical has got my vuvuzela blowing.
It was the final episode of the first series on Monday night on E4.
The Italy v Paraguay game clashed with it... no contest.
But there's no denying what a brilliant idea it is and what an entertaining show.
LEONA LEWIS must think so.
The singer partied with cast members at London's Mahiki club on Monday.
She headed there after her London's O2 Arena gig to hang out with MATTHEW MORRISON, who plays club coach Will Schuester, and JENNA USHKOWITZ - Glee's Tina Cohen-Chang.
The cast are in the UK for an appearance on Friday Night With JONATHAN ROSS.
