This week marks the start of a new era for Glee. We said goodbye to McKinley High last Tuesday, and now we get to see some of the graduates move to New York City to start the next chapter in their lives. Think of all the money everyone will save (that they somehow have unlimited amounts of) by not flying back and forth between Ohio and New York!
On April Fool’s Day (for us in the real world, anyway), it’s no joke that a few months have passed since the events of “New Directions.” Blaine and Sam are now living with Kurt. Artie has some challenges to overcome trying to make his way around the big city. And Mercedes has relocated to New York to continue her album.

Here is the song list for this Tuesday’s episode, “New New York”: A Great Big World’s “Rockstar,” Frank Sinatra’s “You Make Me Feel So Young,” Petula Clark’s “Downtown,” American Authors’ “Best Day of My Life,” Petula Clark’s “Don’t Sleep in the Subway” and “People” from Funny Girl.
With the show now full-time in New York, a lot of these songs are very fitting for the city they’re living in.
As you’ll see below, here’s a lot of duets in this episode, including one from Klaine, as well as Rachel and Artie (which is a nice change of pace from the usual pairings). And Adam Lambert’s Starchild gets to sing with Kurt again.
And you might be wondering where Santana is. She’s expected to be missing from a few episodes, but don’t worry, she’ll be back soon. (I’m sure the storyline excuse is that she and Brittany are on Lesbos Island.)
Listen to all of the songs below:
“Rockstar” — Starchild & Kurt
“You Make Me Feel So Young” — Blaine & Kurt
“Downtown” — Rachel, Kurt, Blaine, Sam & Artie
“Best Day of My Life” — Sam & Blaine
“Don’t Sleep in the Subway” — Rachel & Artie
“People” — Rachel
Which Glee cover is your favorite? Are you glad there’s another Klaine duet? And what do you think of Rachel and Artie being paired up together for a performance?
Glee airs Tuesdays at 8pm on FOX.
