Lea Michele Choked on Fake Snow and Threw Up While Singing 'Let It Go' on 'Glee'

The Rachel Berry of the FOX hit series reveals that she was 'super nervous' about singing the song and ended up choking on fake snow while trying to make her performance look 'magical.'

AceShowbiz - Lea Michele had a little incident when she was filming the "Let It Go" performance for the sixth and final season of "Glee". During an appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" on Wednesday night, January 21, the Rachel Berry depicter on the FOX hit series revealed that she ended up vomiting during the song after choking on some fake snow.

Michele first told host Jimmy Kimmel that she felt "a lot of pressure" covering the Oscar-winning song originally performed by Idina Menzel, who happens to play her character's mother on "Glee". The song from the "Frozen (2013)" soundtrack also has a pop version sung by former Disney princess Demi Lovato.

"At first I was sort of worried, because Idina sang it and Demi sang it...you know, so many people have done it. But I got Idina's blessing, which was wonderful," Michele said. "We were sort of tweeting each other, and she knew it was happening."

Although Menzel gave her on-screen daughter her blessing, Michele was still "super nervous" about performing the hit. "The day didn't start off so well," she admitted. "I was singing, there was snow falling, I looked up, trying to make it magical and beautiful, and ended up choking on the snow and vomiting on the ground. And they have it in slow-mo, on film."

Fortunately, the filming got better after the incident. "The rest of the day was great. Some of our crew members brought their kids and I was like, Oh this is so great," she added.

The final season of "Glee" is currently airing on FOX. Michele's performance of "Let It Go" aired during the season premiere earlier this month.
