Best and Worst Song Performances From Glee Season 2, Episode 11: “The Sue Sylvester Bowl Shuffle”
Glee manages to pack an insane number of songs into each episode, which means there will always be a few standouts along with the inevitable dud or two. We've narrowed the performances down to the very best and the not-so-great from Season 2, Episode 11, “The Sue Sylvester Bowl Shuffle.” After all, not every Glee cover can be a bestseller on iTunes!
Best Performance of the Night: “Bills Bills Bills” by Blaine and the Warblers Maybe it’s blasphemous, but a performance like this one makes us say it: Long live the Warblers! Sure, this tune doesn’t really have much to do with the rest of the episode, but when a song is this blissful, who really cares? Not us.
The vocals are fab (per usual), but this song does all the little things right — we love Blaine’s special entrance through the door, or seeing the guys toss those papers in the air (and let’s not forget that backflip!). They manage to make us care about a song that isn’t even one of the most cherished from the Destiny’s Child canon. (However, we still don’t think “automo” is a word... )
Worst Performance of the Night: “Need You Now” by Rachel and Puck Not a bad performance, per se, but with so few songs this week, this one just doesn’t do enough to stand out. The cover is so straightforward — devoid of the spectacle and fun of the other songs — that it comes across as a little flat. Had Quinn and Sam taken the reigns, perhaps it would have had more oomph. Then again, after watching Puck throw punches, we would never say that to his face!
