Glee is doing Nicki Minaj... again! First, it was “Starships” back in Season 3, and now the show is about to cover Nicki’s hit, “Super Bass.”
Amazon track listings confirm that Glee will have a mashup of Mariah Carey’s “I Still Believe” and Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass” coming in Season 4, Episode 16: “Feud,” and now actress Jane Lynch (Sue Sylvester) has confirmed that she will be the one tackling Nicki’s tricky rap vocals.
“I did a Nicki Minaj song on Glee,” Jane revealed on Conan this Monday. “Super Bass.”
But this isn’t just your average, run of the mill Glee song. “It’s not a song, it’s a rap,” Jane said. “Do you guys know this? Yeah, it’s a rap. I rapped.”
Just in case there was any doubt of her rapping abilities, Jane more than proved herself by breaking out into a flawless rendition of the tune right then and there.
That’s right: Jane Lynch can rap. And she’s awesome at it. From what we’ve heard, the Nicki vs. Mariah “Feud” song will be sung by both Jane and Darren Criss (Blaine). The feud will start when Sue attempts to blackmail Blaine into rejoining the Cheerios.
This is Glee, so why fight physically when you can just battle it out in song? We love Blaine and all, but we have a feeling that Sue’s rapping skills are going to be pretty hard to beat!
