Glee began season three on a positive note last night. The show looks more grounded this year as it focuses on the core relationships of the Glee clubbers and seamlessly integrated Blaine (Darren Criss) into New Directions. I’m excited about the Blaine/Kurt relationship, the Blaine/Finn rivalry, Mercedes new romance, Santana’s “Sophies’s Choice” issues with Glee v. Cheerios, and the Kurt/Rachel theatre dreams storylines…. I’m not sold on the cohabitation of Will & Emma or Sue’s run for congress just yet. But I’m pleased overall and looking forward to where the new season will take us. That said, here are my faves from last night.
Glee cast “You Can’t Stop the Beat” (from the Tony winning Broadway musical Hairspray)
Blaine- ”I’ts Not Unusual” (the Tom Jones classic)
And big props go out to Lindsay Pierce, the girl who should’ve won this year’s Glee Project contest, who kinda stole the whole show with her fantastic performance of “Anything Goes” songs from the Broadway musical. As a big musical theatre geek, Harmony, Lindsay was funny and fierce and I hope they bring her back for more than just her 2 promised episodes (as a runner-up). Check her out below.
