Goofs

When the girls sing the Tina Turner duet, Chord's bangs are freshly cut far above his forehead. Then in the next scene, his bangs return to their normal long hanging in his eyes look. Obviously this was filmed out of sequence. See more »

Quotes

Burt Hummel: I was talking to Carole, and you weren't totally honest with me. She told me that you had a crush on Finn and you weren't afraid to show it. Is this true?
Kurt Hummel: So a gay guy can't be friendly to a straight guy without it being predatory?
Burt Hummel: You got to understand that most guys don't know how to deal with unwanted advances.
Kurt Hummel: So you're saying I shouldn't sing with this Sam guy because it might upset a couple homophobes? I thought you said no one pushes the Hummels around.
Burt Hummel: No one does. I... I'm... I'm not ...

Just a music fan..
14 October 2010 | by lunaticprophetSee all my reviews

I only watch 'Glee' for one reason... I love music! The fact is they could throw out all the story lines and just sing and I would like the show much more. But as the story lines are geared to introducing the varied musical styles/songs, I endure.

There have been several episodes over the past two seasons that have really stood out, musically, for me. Most notably, "Home" from season one with Kristin Chenoweth ("Pushing Daisies".. and a superb singing voice) and Matthew Morrison ("Will Shuster") performing a mash-up duet of Burt Bacharach's "One Less Bell to Answer" and Luther Vandross' styled cover of "A House is Not a Home". Brilliant performance!

The more I watch the show, the more impressed I am with Lea Michele's ("Rachael") voice. Watching her sing last season I kept comparing her to a young Barbra Streisand and in a few performances she blew me away with her Streisand'esquire singing style and range.

In this episode she performs a wonderful duet with Chris Colfer ("Kurt") of "Happy Days Are Here Again" and pays homage to Streisand in voice and in dress. A Great Performance!

The duets by "Kurt" & "Rachael" and "Mercedes" & "Santana" duet of Ike & Tina Turner's classic "River Deep - Mountain High" are the two superb musical standouts of this episode.
