Jesse Tyler Ferguson, who plays Mitchell in the programme, said: "Gaga reached out and she wanted to do something with the show but it's like, how do you incorporate Lady Gaga into ‘Modern Family’?"
However, Jesse did reveal that a tribute to the singer has been penned for a forthcoming episode, though she is not scheduled to appear in it.
He explained on morning TV show ‘Live with Regis and Kelly: "We're actually doing a Lady Gaga episode. Mitchell, my character, wants to go to the Lady Gaga concert, and Cameron is supposed to go with me but he's sick in bed and he's expecting me to stay home and take care of him.
"And so I kind of, maybe, drug him a little bit so I can sneak out and go to the concert."
Meanwhile, a forthcoming episode of ‘Glee’ featuring the music of Lady Gaga has been extended by 30 minutes longer than the usual running time.
The 90-minute special episode will see members of the New Directions high school glee club perform ‘Born This Way’ and learn a lesson about self-acceptance.
Network Fox announced: "In the 'Born This Way' episode, Mr. Schuester (Matthew Morrison) teaches the glee club a valuable lesson about self-acceptance and embracing what makes you unique through the music of Lady Gaga.”
