Glee’s upcoming Season 5, Episode 4: "A Katy or a Gaga" will be comprised solely of songs by either Katy Perry or Lady Gaga, and from the looks of the cast most recent behind-the-scenes photos, we’re in for a wild ride...literally.
Naturally, this has to be a performance of Katy Perry’s summer hit, “Roar.” That entire music video is set in a prehistoric jungle, one that looks almost identical to the one the New Directions have constructed in the McKinley High School auditorium.
Unconfirmed spoiler reports say Glee’s version of “Roar” will be a split performance: half in Ohio and half in New York City. A few days back, Lea Michele (Rachel) tweeted two photos of the NYC side of the song. It features Rachel, Santana, Kurt, and celebrity guest stars Demi Lovato and Adam Lambert all performing together.
Spliced together with their performance will be the New Ds re-creating the colorful jungle scene. Matt’s photo is zoomed out enough that we can’t tell which characters are on stage, but we see guys. And they are shirtless. So you’ll hear no complaints from us.
In addition to “Roar,” the New Directions will also be performing Katy Perry’s “Wide Awake.” The two Lady Gaga songs will be “Applause” and “Marry the Night,” performed by the the New Directions and Adam Lambert, respectively. And yes, they all sound just as cool as this performance!
