Mercedes Jones is glee's dynamic, blinged-out diva-in-training who refuses to sing back-up. She proves she's just as talented as Rachel Berry (if not more so) when she belts out the Dreamgirls torch song "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going" in preparation for Sectionals. In Episode 1.3, "Acafellas," Brittany and Santana convince Mercedes that BFF Kurt likes her, so she pursues him. In a panic, Kurt tells Mercedes that he has a crush on Rachel, which prompts hot-tempered Mercedes to bust his SUV window. Kurt comes out to her at the end of the episode.
