Lindsay Lohan is a total Gleek!
Appearing as a Nationals judge on Tuesday's episode of FOX's Glee, the 25-year-old actress pledged her love for McKinley High's New Directions when deliberating with Perez Hilton and Rex Lee as to which team should win the coveted competition title.
Lohan — appearing as herself — favored the Lea Michele and Cory Monteith-fronted group not just for their vocals, but for their heart. "They weren't the best singers and dancers, but they were likable," she reasoned to blogger Hilton, who played himself, and Entourage's Lee, who appeared as Alderman Martin Fong.
Said Lohan, who declared she was "robbed" of critical acclaim for 2003's Freaky Friday: "I'm here because I care about young artists chasing their dreams. And who doesn't like someone making a comeback?!"
During her deliberations, Lohan — who was reportedly a "diva" on set during the three-day filming session — was miffed when she found out her appearance at Nationals wouldn't be televised like other popular music competitions.
"I am in full image rebranding mode," she said. "I come here and there's not even a chair that can spin me around…I can't point at a kid on stage and yell 'I want to work with you!' I am so firing my manager."
In the end, Lohan's instincts were spot-on, and she was able to convince her colleagues that New Directions should take the title, upsetting last season's champs Vocal Adrenaline.
Next Tuesday, Glee will wrap its third season, with a handful of fan favorite characters saying goodbye to McKinley High.
