Last week’s Glee may have been more of a filler episode (most likely due to the fact that Chris Colfer wrote the script — which had his humorous touch all over it), but now we’re just days away from the season 5 finale.
In “The Untitled Rachel Berry Project,” Rachel meets with a well-known TV writer (played by Kristen Schaal), Sam and Mercedes once again are dealing with their relationship and Blaine has his showcase with Shirley MacLaine’s June Dolloway. Also, Heather Morris returns as Brittany, but unfortunately, Santana won’t be appearing in this episode.

Check out the song list for the finale: “Shakin’ My Head” (a Glee original), John Legend’s “All of Me,” Duran Duran’s “Girls on Film,” Pink’s “Glitter in the Air,” “No Time at All” from Pippin, Estelle’s “American Boy,” and Bastille’s “Pompeii.”
Rachel, Blaine and Sam all have solos. There will also be some duets including one by Klaine and a second pairing of Blaine and Shirley MacLaine’s character. And what’s really interesting is that the original song was originally supposed to feature Santana, but Naya Rivera was written out of the finale. (Rumors have been running rampant for weeks that she’s been fired from the show, though FOX is saying otherwise.)
Listen to all seven songs below:
“Shakin’ My Head” — Mercedes & Brittany
“All of Me” — Blaine
“Girls on Film” — Sam
“Glitter in the Air” — Pink
“No Time at All” — Blaine & June Dolloway (Shirley MacLaine)
“American Boy” — Kurt & Blaine
“Pompeii” — Rachel, Kurt, Blaine, Mercedes, Brittany, Sam & Artie
