Lea Michele: Billboard's First Triple Threat Award Winner!

Lea Michele will receive the first ever Triple Threat Award at the Billboard Women in Music Event next month in New York City!

The 24-year-old Glee actress will be celebrated on Thursday, December 2 at the event, which will also honor Fergie as Woman of the Year and Jazmine Sullivan with the Rising Star Award!

“I’m so excited!” Lea told Billboard. “At work we have a nickname for Matt Morrison — we call him ‘Triple Threat,’ because he’s an incredible singer-dancer-actor. And now I get to borrow that phrase, which is really cool.”

Congrats, Lea!!

    nice accomplishment personally I think she is underrated. & of the top 10 glee songs are her doing. Since she get old tunes that is even more impressive.

    I agree with so much of what has already been said. Lea’s contribution to the success of Glee is terribly under-appreciated, both by fans of the show and by those in charge of the show. From a strictly financial standpoint, if you look at the top sellers from Glee, Lea has had the most impact on music. Personally, I think she’s incredibly talented — she’s a great singer and actress, and when she dances you believe her movement, even though she’s not trained professionally. I agree, also, that it’s nice to have someone with actual talent get recognized. Congrats to Lea. She deserves this and every other accolade you receive.

    she is beyond talented, well done lea.
    it is just a shame that glee is wasting her talent this season, with a poor storyline that don’t develop in anything.

    THIS. I completely agree. Lea Michele is the reason why I started watching Glee. I was hooked on her energetic portrayal of Rachel Berry. However, lately, I feel like her talent is being wasted on the show. She’s been reduced to a recurring character and hardly gets any screentime or storylines outside of being Finn’s girlfriend. That was not the reason why LM got nominated for an Emmy last year. The show needs to let her showcase her talent and stop reducing her into being a background swayer. The show was a success with HER in the lead. Fox and Ryan Murphy need to get with the program.
