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 all seven of the performances from Season 5, Episode 6: “Movin’ Out,” down to the very best and the coulda-done-without. Do you agree with our picks?
Best Performance of the Night: “Just the Way You Are” by Blaine, Kurt, Rachel, Sam, and Santana
There were a number of excellent performances this week — including “Movin’ Out” and “Piano Man” — but “Just the Way You Are” really had everything. We loved seeing Klaine together at the piano to start the song, followed by Sam (Chord Overstreet) and Rachel (Lea Michele) bonding — and holding hands! — with Santana finally joining on the hairbrush mic. We love this performance just the way it is.
Worst Performance of the Night: “Honesty” by Artie
Honestly, we’re not too sure of the appropriateness of Ryder’s (Blake Jenner) “An Innocent Man” — given that he was singing right in front of Jake (Jacob Artist) — or Jake’s “My Life”, since Jake shouldn’t be playing the “poor me” card. Still, we’re going with “Honesty,” as we prefer hearing Artie’s (Kevin McHale) voice on peppier numbers rather than ballads. That said, we can’t get enough of Artie and Becky (Lauren Potter) as besties.
