This Week in 'Glee' Music: "Vitamin D"
This Week in 'Glee' Music: "Vitamin D"
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...
