'Glee' Video: Darren Criss and Matt Bomer Perform 'Somebody That I Used to Know'
Tuesday, April 03, 2012
A week from tonight, we'll be watching the eagerly awaited return of Glee. The web has been abuzz with guest star Matt Bomer about to make his debut on the hit FOX musical, playing Blaine's older brother, Cooper Anderson.
To begin the excitement leading up this episode, "Big Brother," FOX has released its first preview video, of a performance, to be exact. In it, we see Blaine (Darren Criss) and Cooper (Matt Bomer) performing Gotye's "Somebody That I Used to Know." Well, it's a coincidence that both Anderson brothers can sing, isn't it? It's a good thing Bomer is a great singer.
Blaine begins singing on stage, with Cooper sitting out where the audience would be seated, then he makes his way closer to the stage and eventually joins in on the song. We also see a quick flashback of their childhood. The whole performance is very dramatic and theatrical. Take a look below:
As mentioned in the FOX press release for this episode, "While Cooper's presence is welcome by some, it forces Blaine to address the brothers' ongoing sibling rivalry." Listening to the song, the lyrics seem very pertinent: "You treat me like a stranger ... You didn't have to stoop so low."
Glee's "Big Brother" episode airs next Tuesday at 8pm on FOX.
