Gwyneth Paltrow Will Sing 'F*** You' on 'Glee'

Oscar-winner Gwyneth Paltrow is certainly doing a good job building buzz for her new film Country Strong. She impressed the Internet with her Nashville chops when a track from the film featuring her vocals leaked back in July. It's a song that she will sing during her live TV performance debut on the Country Music Awards next Wednesday, a high-profile event that last year had nearly 17 million viewers

Next stop on her publicity tour: Glee. In September, the show's creator Ryan Murphy announced she would guest star on the hit show as a substitute teacher. Now the track list for the upcoming Glee soundtrack has been released, and it reveals the song that Paltrow will sing on the show: the Internet viral phenomenon "F**k You" by Cee-lo Green:

The tracklist for the fourth Glee soundtrack is out, and, as usual, it can be scoured for hints of what's to come. Namely, during her forthcoming guest turn on the show, Gwyneth Paltrow will be performing the radio edit of Cee-Lo's "Fuck You," known as "Forget You." Will it be as good as Will's cleaned-up performance of "Golddigger"? ("She ain't messing with no broke, broke.") Also in store for us: Bruno Mars ("Just the Way You Are"), the Zuton's "Valerie" (best known for its Amy Winehouse cover), a rendition of "Marry You," and Dirty Dancing's "(I've Had) The Time Of My Life," which should be rousing, just so long as the Black Eyed Peas don't crash, and/or Cory Monteith doesn't dance.

For a preview, here is the radio-edit of the track Paltrwo will be singing:



And here is the leaked version of  "Country Strong":
