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 the performances from Season 4, Episode 6: “Glease,” down to the very best and the coulda-done-without. Do you agree with our picks?
Best Performance of the Night: Blaine’s “Beauty School Dropout”
There were so many amazing performances this week that trying to choose just one is making us go dizzy, as if we were just hit in the head with a car door. Of course, “You’re The One That I Want” was spectacular, with its look back at the days of yore, while Ryder (Blake Jenner) and Santana (Naya Rivera) both excelled in “Greased Lightning” and “There Are Worse Things I Could Do,” respectively.
But there was no denying the power of both Blaine’s (Darren Criss) voice and the look on his face. That glance alone between him and Kurt (Chris Colfer) during the song basically turned us into a sobbing mess, and even Sugar (Vanessa Lengies)was hilarious as Blaine’s silent muse. Our only complaint? We’re now going to wish that Blaine would sing to us whenever we’re in a jam.
Worst Performance of the Night: Kitty’s “Look at Me, I’m Sandra Dee”
We don’t mean to disrespect Kitty’s (Becca Tobin) voice, since it is indeed impressive, but this song just didn’t blow us away. Plus, the context for the song within the episode was so mean-spirited that it was difficult to feel emotionally involved. That said, we totally wish we cuddle with that ginormous panda bear of Kitty’s.
