Glee Song Snippets: Music from "The Substitute"

by at . Comments

Glee fans are likely well aware at this point, but Gwyneth Paltrow guest stars on Tuesday's episode as Holly Holiday. Yes, that's the name of a teacher, not a porn star, something Terri asks the character about.

This substitute takes over New Directions when Will comes down with a sickness, as previewed in this video. Spoilers have already revealed that Paltrow will sing a pair of tunes on the episode:

  1. A mash-up of "Singing in the Rain/Umbrella."
  2. A take-off on Cee Lo's "F-ck You," titled "Forget You."

In the following video, we've provided fans with a preview of these and other singles covered on "The Substitute." Watch, listen and enjoy.

Don't like the mashup (I don't think they sound that great together), but the dance routine looks fun. Looking forward to 'Make Em Laugh' though, especially the running up the wall bit (I presume that's Harry), hope they put a new spin on it too (cos you can't better the original!). Very underwhelmed by Gwyneth though.

Chair me up

i love that they'll do such a classic as singing in the rain!


I have a feeling that Holly Holiday will be a Mary Sue.

Avatar that is the full video version of "forget you" on youtube!


Love Gwyneth, but hating Glee producers for making fake promotions that Charice will appear on 6th and 7th singing Celine's song (through Ausielo). Don't use fake publicity please.

Glee Quotes

[to Kurt] You know, these Mounds bars are delicious, but you have to eat them. If you just hold them in your hand hoping that you might get to eat them one day, they're going to melt and you'll look like somebody just pooped in your hand. Don't let waiting for things to maybe work out with Blaine turn you into the guy who looks like somebody just pooped in their hand.


Blaine: Where's the bed?
Brittany: I removed it because when I imagined you two having sex I imagined a U-haul mounting a moped.
