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.

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

You know, a great big fat person once stood on this stage and told a group of a dozen or so nerds in hideous disco outfits that glee, by its very definition, is about opening yourself up to joy. Now it's no secret that for a long time I thought that was a load of hooey. As far as I could see the glee club was nothing but a place where a bunch of cowardly losers go to sing their troubles away and delude themselves into thinking that they live in a world that cares one iota about their hopes and dreams, totally divorced from the harsh reality that in the real world there's not much more to hope for than disappointment, heartbreak, and failure. And you know what. I was exactly right. Thats exactly what glee club is. But I was wrong about the cowardly part. What I finally realized, now that I'm well into my late thirties, it takes a lot of bravery to look around you and see the world not as it is but as it should be. A world where the quarterback becomes best friends with the gay kid, and the girl with the big nose ends up on Broadway. Finding the courage to open up your heart and sing about it. That's what glee club is. And for the longest time I thought that was silly, and now I think it's just about the bravest thing that anyone could do.

[to Finn] You know, I don't really know what's going to happen between us, but I know that you used to be the guy that would make me feel like the most special girl in the whole world, and it doesn't feel that way anymore. Now it just feels sad and confusing. And the worst part is that it doesn't even feel that bad anymore.
