Usually we'd be doing a slideshow here listing down all the songs we heard on last night's episode of Glee
. But these are special circumstances. One, we only have two performances, so that obviously makes a slideshow and a showdown impossible. (Dang.) Two, those performances are mash-ups of two different songs. So we might put it this way: we have four songs squeezed into two songs--and that's only four minutes or so of the episode!
So here's what we'll do. I'll do what I usually do, slightly adapted. I'll give my comments on the song, and you'll get a chance to vote on your favorite performance via the poll. And then, just as a bonus, you get to listen to them one more time, just to remind you to download them on iTunes later on. The good thing? We don't have to sit through what I think is the awkwardness of seeing everybody but Quinn giddy because of decongestants. Of course that's tongue-in-cheek. But you know what I mean!
Boys' mash-up: Bon Jovi's "It's My Life" vs Usher's "Confessions Part II"Glee
-fied by: Cory Monteith, Kevin McHale, Chris Colfer, Dijon Talton, Harry Shum and Mark Salling
Finn's spaced-out look aside, I liked the way two totally different songs merged here. I call this the better mash-up. And Artie? Yeah, he was part of an R&B group before. I should remember that.Girls' mash-up: Beyonce Knowles' "Halo" vs Katrina and the Waves' "Walking on Sunshine"Glee
-fied by: Lea Michele, Amber Riley, Dianna Agron, Heather Morris, Jenna Ushkowitz and Naya Rivera
Is it just me, or did "Halo" overtake this entire mash-up? Or maybe it sounded forced because "Walking on Sunshine" has a different tempo. Rachel's last note? I did not see that coming, so whoa.
Now, for me to deal with the heartbreak that is Will and Emma...More "Vitamin D"
