It happened. The moment we’ve all been dreading ever since they announced it: Glee performed Rebecca Black’s “Friday,” in Season 2, Episode 20, “Prom Queen.” And you know what? Please don’t be mad at us, but we didn’t think it was that bad.
When the original song became a YouTube sensation, we literally wanted to jump out the window. Or at least throw whatever computer was guilty of streaming that vile song out a window. We know our days of the week, thank you very much.
But then — the strangest thing happened. We found ourselves grinning like idiots when we watched Artie (Kevin McHale), Puck (Mark Salling), and Sam (Chord Overstreet) perform the song at McKinley’s prom. They had fun with it. And you know what else? We think Glee’s cover will probably become an anthem at MANY a prom to come.
So what do you think, Gleeks? Is “Friday” at least slightly more palatable to you now? Or do you still think it’s the worst song that’s ever been written since the dawn of time?
