First Listen: Blaine and New Directions’ “Hey Jude” in Glee Season 5, Episode 2
Even if you’re not familiar with all of The Beatles music, we’re willing to bet you know “Hey Jude.” It’s one of the legendary band’s most popular songs.
Given that, it’s no surprise that Glee chose to include the track as one of the 14 Beatles songs during its two-part tribute. “Hey Jude” will be performed by the New Directions as a group number during Glee Season 5, Episode 2: “Tina in the Sky With Diamonds,” the prom episode.
Not surprisingly, Blaine (Darren Criss) starts off the song with an extended solo. “Hey Jude, don’t make it bad. Take a sad song and make it better. Remember to let her into your heart, then you can start to make it better.”
But lest you forget, half of this show takes place in New York City now, so there will be plenty of songs performed in the Big Apple during this episode. Rachel (Lea Michele) and Kurt (Chris Colfer) will sing an energetic duet to The Beatles’s “Get Back,” while Santana (Naya Rivera) and her new love interest, Dani (Demi Lovato), will duet on “Here Comes the Sun.” Then, the worlds of NYC and Ohio unite as Rachel, Santana, and Kurt join the New Directions for a group performance of “Let It Be.”
