I might just be reading up on conjugated linoleic acid and not totally be excited for tomorrow, but Glee’s season finale will be tomorrow!!!
As much as I will really miss Glee (until Season 3), I am excited to see the episode, after religiously following forums for spoilers, taking in photo over photo and following tweets from the cast.
Here is the ‘New York’ Song List:
1. New Directions, ‘I Love New York/New York, New York’ (Madonna/’On the Town’)
2. Sam, Artie and Puck, ‘Bella Notte’ (from ‘Lady & the Tramp’)
3. Rachel and Kurt, ‘For Good’ (from ‘Wicked the Musical’)
4. Sunshine Corazon, ‘As Long as You’re There’ (Original Song)
5. Rachel and Finn, ‘Pretending’ (Original Song)
6. New Directions, ‘Light Up The World’ (Original Song)
7. Female Competitive Group, ‘Yeah!’ (Usher)
8. Will, ‘Still Got Tonight’ (Matthew Morrison)
9. Brittany and Artie, ‘My Cup’ (Original Song)
Yes, Rachel and Finn will kiss during their performance.
I really do not know how Sexy came to be the title of this episode when they come out in outrageous outfits (look at those ties!) like these:
But I forgot the Holly Holiday is back, and that she will be a substitute teacher for Sex Education. I cannot wait to see her number with Will Schuester – this man needs to have some singing spots again!
A peek into one of the songs – Do You Want to Touch Me – Hot hot hot!
When free-spirited substitute teacher Holly Holliday (Gwyneth Paltrow) fills in for the absent sex-education teacher, she joins forces with Mr. Schuester (Matthew Morrison) to teach the kids of New Directions the facts of life, while having some fun of their own. Meanwhile, Emma (Jayma Mays) heads up the Celibacy Club, and she and Carl (John Stamos) address some issues in their personal life.
“Loser Like Me” will be tackled by the New Directions crew (Lea Michele and Cory Monteith take lead on most of the verses) and is, according to Anders, a “Gleek anthem. It’s a very uptempo, kind-of-summery hit.” Anders scored a major pop music coup by luring Martin, who crafted hits like “My Life Would Suck Without You,” to co-write the track. “He owns radio right now,” says Anders of Martin. “He’s had, like, seven No. 1s in the last year, and so if we wanna go to radio with anybody tagging along, I think he’s the guy you want.” Plus, getting Martin to sign on wasn’t as difficult as one might expect. “We’ve done like 30 of his songs on Glee,” says Anders. “The thing about Max is that he’s a huge fan of pop culture and he just loved the idea of being part of something that’s such a cultural phenomenon. So it was actually not hard to convince him at all. He was all about it.” Sweden-based Martin even got to witness the frenzy of Gleekdom. Says Anders, “He was actually over here working on Britney’s record and was exposed to exactly how enormous [Glee] is.”
The other original track is a ballad called “Get It Right” that Anders, his writing partner, and his wife all crafted specifically for Lea Michele. “Lea’s storyline kind of inspired that song for me,” says Anders. “Basically, you try to do everything right and you have good motivations with everything you’re doing but everything ends up going wrong. How many times will it take for me to get it right?”
My love for Glee has not waned even if I have not be able to post as many screencaps and spoilers as I can since the Super Bowl Episode (episode 11). Now, we are into Episode 14 going to 15 (in two weeks!) and I promise to post as many spoilers for the “Sexy” episode, where Holly Holiday (Gwyneth Paltrow) comes back and she and Mr. Schuester might just have shared a kiss.
Now, if only Glee offers postcard printing I would have sent those type of cards to keep in touch with my friend who loves Glee as much as I do. For now, she just needs to read this blog to gather as much information as she can, such as the release of the ORIGINAL songs from Glee members – for the regionals.
Can you tell I’ve missed Glee? I can’t wait for the February 6th comeback episode.
The episode will focus on the increasing tension between the glee club and the football team, instigated by closeted player Karofsky’s (Max Adler) bullying of gay teen Kurt (Chris Colfer). To force a truce at the school, Will (Matthew Morrison) and Coach Beiste (Dot-Marie Jones) make the jocks join the glee club. When the plan inevitably backfires, look for the ladies of New Directions to help their male pals on the field.
Meanwhile, Sue (Jane Lynch) is after a cheerleading competition title and thinks the best way to impress the judges is to risk the life of Brittany (Heather Morris). “I put her in a human cannon,” says Lynch. “I’m told by the principal I can’t because of insurance considerations and liability, and I destroy his office in a rage, the likes of which have not been seen.” Sue’s exploits actually nab the attention of CBS news anchor (and admitted Gleek) Katie Couric, who interviews the Cheerios coach in the episode.
It’s Sue’s Cheerios who also deliver the episode’s other explosive performance, an opening dance to Katy Perry’s smash “California Gurls” designed to keep male viewers glued to the screen after the game…Describes Morris,
“It’s BMXers and girls, and not only are they shooting fire out of their boobs, but there’s a fire whip. Then there’s all of us cheerleaders in blue wigs and all we do is shake our ass. It’s crazy.” Adds Falchuk, “We stuff in there understanding that there are a lot of dudes who watch the Super Bowl. So it was making sure that the dudes who refuse to watch Glee are like, Wait a second!” Flaming breasts tend to have that effect.
Prepare for the show’s couplings to be shuffled. Most surprising? Resident hot blonds Sam (Chord Overstreet) and Quinn (Dianna Agron) will start seeing other people. Explains Murphy, “I got bored. They were too perfect.” But that doesn’t mean that Sam will be on his own. “He starts dating Santana,” says Murphy. “He needs a little salsa spice.” Murphy adds that Quinn will also find comfort in the form of her old boyfriend, Finn. Shocking!
Speaking of potential romances, the Super Bowl ep will also feature a duet of Lady Antebellum’s “Need You Now” by Puck (Mark Salling) and Rachel. Ms. Berry will later team with Mercedes (Amber Riley) on Rent’s “Take Me or Leave Me.”
I have already seen five episodes of Glee’s Season 2 and Episode 3 still remains to be my most favorite yet (except for Episode 1, which was epic, for my anyways, great choice of songs + characters + story twists/introduction)
Remember: “The whole point of having something sacred is that it takes precedent over anything else you have going on.” — Burt Hummel
The story focused on Kurt’s relationship with his Dad and I was crying all through out the movie!
Especially when I saw this clip:
Now I would not throw a tantrum the next time my parents whisk me off for a boring weekend in one of those Outer Banks homes with no internet and TV!
• Between Kurt and his father (who’s in a coma in the hospital following a heart attack):
Kurt: “I don’t believe in God, Dad. But I believe in you. And I believe in us. You and me — that’s what’s sacred to me.”
