Glee’s Season 5 premiere is all about the Beatles! In fact, both Episodes 1 and 2 will be tributes to the music of the iconic ‘60s rock group. The cast will be performing a total of 14 tunes over the course of the two episodes, so it’s only natural that at least one of the songs will feature some of the New Direction guys dressed up at Ringo, Paul, George, and John.

So which guy is taking on the role of which Beatle? Thanks to Chord Overstreet (Sam) on Instagram, we know exactly who’s playing who. Chord recently posted two photos that show Sam, Blaine (Darren Criss), Jake (Jacob Artist), and Ryder (Blake Jenner) all dressed up like the Fab Four.

With drumsticks in hand, Ryder is clearly Ringo Starr. Blaine is playing the bass, which would make him Paul McCartney. Both Jake and Sam are playing guitar, so it’s hard to tell for sure which one is John Lennon and which is George Harrison.

If we had to guess, though, we’d say that Sam is probably John Lennon. John and Paul McCartney were songwriting partners, and since Sam and Blaine are such close friends, it makes sense that they’d be paired together.

Are you happy with Glee’s Beatles, or were you hoping that one of the other guys would get one of the four spots? Head below and let us know what you think.
