Aren't the reasons for a Mariah Carey themed "Glee" episode pretty self-explanatory? If for no other reason than just the spectacle that IS Mimi, then how about the image of "Glee's" Lea Michele in pig tails, on skates, in a cheesy Mariah-inspired butterfly tank belting out a buffet of Mimi classics.
Can you just picture it now? Rachel Berry skating through the halls of McKinley High singing a Mimi mashup of "Fantasy," "Heartbreaker," and "Dreamlover." And since it's a Ryan Murphy brainchild after all, then let's throw in some lambs crossing Rach's path for physical comedy effect. (Sidenote: To clarify, there's no modernization with roller blades, we're talking four-wheeler Xanadu-style for Berry).
