The latest edition of the Fox musical comedy - which was named after GaGa's recent single and included a rendition of the song itself - addressed issues such as body confidence and sexuality as members of New Directions
learned to love themselves.
After the show's US premiere, the 'Judas' singer tweeted: "I really loved Glee's Born This Way episode. I admire the show for being brave+fighting for such modern social messaging. Never back down."
Max Adler - who plays closeted jock David Karofsky in the show - recently stated that he was "proud" of his contribution to the 'Born This Way' episode.
