Poll! “I Am Unicorn’s” Best and Worst Song Performances — Glee Season 3, Episode 2
Naming the best song from this week’s Season 3, Episode 2: “I Am Unicorn” is kinda like naming your favorite food group: They’re all good when you’re hungry! We’ll try anyway! Like Kurt in this ep, we will not be defeated! (Although, unfortunately, in this case, he was.) Here are our picks for best and the coulda-done-without. After all, not every Gleecover can be a bestseller on iTunes!
Best Performance of the Night: “Somewhere” by Rachel and Shelby
The song that was just barely stronger than Blaine’s “Something Coming” was this powerful duet that fit perfectly in both of their vocal ranges. If those harmonies didn’t give you the chills, then you’re wearing too many layers, honey. Basically, this emotional song was the perfect way to bring estranged mom and daughter back together — culminating in that adorable hand-hold. (And here we thought that the most memorable thing to do at a family reunion was play Lord of the Rings Risk.)
Worst Performance of the Night: “I’m the Greatest Star” by Kurt
Sadly — because we so love him and he kinda needs a break about now — Kurt’s number just didn’t wow us (acrobatics aside), perhaps because it didn’t pack that emotional wallop. Meanwhile, there’s something about Blaine’s voice and stage presence that commands our attention, and it’s pretty clear the school musical judges felt the same way. Ouch.
