Everything from "Everybody Talks" on down has not been performed yet on the show, but will soon, with the Neon Trees number in tonight's episode. Keep reading on to find out who cover "Dark Side." BuddyTV has already previewed the "Gangnam Style" performance. And I wonder if "Home" is the hugely successful hit from American Idol winner Phillip Phillips.

What's Ahead for Kitty?

Glee always seems to follow a pattern -- any major character that's not in the glee club will eventually sign up. And it looks like that'll be happening with Kitty. In a conversation with The Hollywood Reporter, the actress who plays the mean girl, Becca Tobin, talks about her reasons for joining New Directions: "She gets involved with the school musical and figures out her passion for singing and dancing and it's a no-brainer for her to try and get in with the glee club. She likes to keep her eyes on Jake and Marley and she likes to have control at school and sees a lot of action is happening in the glee club and wants to keep an eye on things." Sounds like Quinn, doesn't it?

Since she'll be keeping her eye on what's going on with Jake and Marley, there's about to be some tension between the two girls. "We audition for the play and you'll see each of us doing our chosen number and episode five is the first time you'll see Kitty singing," she says. She mentions one scene in particular that stands out to her. "Kitty has a sleepover party with the girls for the musical. We almost sing every song from the original movie and Kitty gets to sing 'Look at Me, I'm Sandra Dee.'" Is Kitty taking on the role of Rizzo?

But after being absorbed with playing a mean girl, will Kitty's attitude change? Becca hopes so. "I've had fun playing the mean girl ... At the same time, I also would love to see Kitty go through that big transformation because I'd hate for high school students to look up to Kitty and think that's okay." Just look at Quinn, Puck and Santana. Each of them had similar characteristics to Kitty, but the glee club softened them and they've turned into decent people, even some fan favorites as well.
