Girl on Fire: Naya Rivera Heads to New York on ‘Glee’!

It was Diva Week on Glee last night! Finn challenged the glee club to tap into their inner prima donnas in preparation for Regionals, which meant a sleuth of songs by Beyoncé, Streisand, and Madonna. But, more importantly, the return of Naya Rivera's divalicious character Santana!

With Emma as guest judge, she knew Blaine would be a tough act to follow (he pulled out all the stops, repeatedly declaring “Men can be divas” too) so she brought in our favorite alum: Santana!

The University Of Louisville cheerleader belted out Tina Turner's “Nutbush City Limits” like only she could. But her majorly missed attitude wasn't the only thing she brought to Lima. Santana came with a new boo Elaine, an out-of-the-closet lesbian that Brittany didn't look too happy to see.

Sam, who's in love with Brittany, and Santana hashed out their love triangle over a sad duet which Brittany overheard.

“She’s with me now, and you know that’s the best thing for her. Just let her go,” Sam said.

“Never,” Santana replied.

Tina, on the other hand, dealt with her own jealousy towards Santana. She's sick of being upstaged by her, but maybe the anger's coming from another place: the fact that she's in love with Blaine, who's gay. She channeled her feelings into a Madonna number that won her diva of the week.

Meanwhile, in New York, Kurt could no longer take Rachel's arrogant attitude and called her out on it. They ended up having a sing-off, which Kurt won and made the tension ever worse.

Back in Lima, Sue told Santana she found out she had dropped out of school and offered her a job assisting the Cheerios. Santana turned to Brittany for advice, and Brittany told her not to take it, that it would only hold her back (oh and P.S. she knew Elaine was Santana's fake girlfriend). They ended the convo on good terms: with a kiss.

But despite all the shocking moments on last night's episode—Tina lathering  decongestant cream all over Blaine's chest after he fell asleep and Emma and Finn actually kissing (yes, KISSED!)—the closing scene took the cake.

Santana started singing Alicia Keys' “Girl on Fire” (only her best performance ever!) in the Lima auditorium and ended up outside Kurt and Rachel’s apartment in NYC. “I’m moving in!” Santana announced to an obviously shocked Kurt and Rachel.

OMG! We can't wait to see the new direction (pun intended) Santana takes.
