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 five of the performances from Season 5, Episode 7: “Puppet Master,” down to the very best and the coulda-done-without. Do you agree with our picks?
Best Performance of the Night: "You're My Best Friend" Blaine
We're certainly fans of Jarley's dance-tastic rendition of "Nasty/Rhythm Nation." But there's something special about Blaine (Darren Criss) covering Queen, as previously proven with Season 4's "Don't Stop Me Now." Sure enough, Blaine sounds superb on the sweet "You're My Best Friend" — although it kind of make us bummed that we're not actually best friends with Blaine.
Worst Performance of the Night: "Cheek to Cheek" by Sue and Will
The harmonies are rather admirable in this ditty from the two frenemies. Still, we typically prefer something peppier from Sue (Jane Lynch), a la last season's bewigged masterpiece, "Super Bass." Plus, the black-and-white throwback vibe of "Cheek to Cheek" is a little too similar to Wemma's previous "You're All the World to Me." Still, there's no question that Sue and Schue (Matthew Morrison) can definitely cut a rug.
