Gwyneth Paltrow makes her 'Glee' debut with her cover of 'Forget You' on 'The Substitute' episode, which airs on Tuesday, Nov. 16. The rendition is a more FCC-friendly version of Cee-Lo Green's explicit hit 'F*** You.'

This week, the Oscar-winning actress plays substitute teacher Hollie Holiday, who takes over New Directions when the flu strikes McKinley High's students and teachers, namely Mr. Schuester.

While some may wonder how it's possible to pull off the infectious Motown vibe of Green's smash single without using his original chorus, Paltrow succeeds in reworking the song from a female perspective.

In a clip from the show, posted by Entertainment Weekly, the New Directions crew is skeptical about their new Glee club director. "Excuse me, what would you know about Cee-Lo?" Santana says to Ms. Holiday. "'Cause you're like 40."

"Top 40, sweet cheeks," she responds before launching into the sassy cover, complete with a full dance routine.

Catch 'The Substitute' tomorrow night at 8 p.m. ET, and listen to 'Forget You' and other songs from the hit Fox series on AOL Radio's 'Glee' station now.
