Los Angeles - Bette Midler is to star in Glee.

The Wind Beneath My Wings singer has agreed to film a cameo for the musical TV drama after being asked to by the show's co-creator Ryan Murphy.

Ryan asked Bette while she was on stage for the God's Love We Deliver Golden Hearts Awards event in New York City.

She tweeted: "And from the stage, @ryanmurphy invited me to guest on @Glee! I should get out more."

'Bette said yes!'

Ryan couldn't contain his excitement and also took to Twitter to speak of his joy.

Soon after Ryan tweeted: "Bette said yes! Amazing. I am plotting...who should she play?"

But it seems, Bette, already has some ideas and thinks she could be the grandmother of Rachel Berry, who is played by Lea Michele.

Jessica Sanchez to play recurring role

She tweeted: "I have one vote for Rachel's grandmother."

Bette is not the only star to sign up for the show as American Idol runner-up Jessica Sanchez will also have a recurring role.

However, character details and a start date are yet to be revealed.

Stars who have previously made cameo's in Glee include Gwyneth Paltrow, Britney Spears, Kate Hudson and Sarah Jessica Parker.
