Glee Sneak Peeks: Covering Katy, Meeting Rory

at . Comments

Following a lengthy hiatus, Glee returns this Tuesday with the introduction of a foreign exchange student and another cover of a Katy Perry classic.

Let's start with the latter first: Lea Michele's version of "Firework" is one of my all-tie favorite Glee numbers, putting extra pressure on Darren Criss to top it with his lead on "Last Friday Night." Is he up for the challenge? Watch the performance now and judge for yourself:

Meanwhile, Glee Project winner Damian McGinty will debut as Rory, as Irish lad who lives with Brittany and will clash big-time with Santana. Watch the new actor discuss the role, and enjoy a couple scenes from "Pot O' Gold" in the video interview below.

Oops meant *seen


WAS excited for the return but having seem the song clip I think I'll be off Glee within the month.
How many times do we have to watch these kids singing in a polished fashion (when we know it's SUPPOSED to be the first time they've attempted the song together) and being overly cheery and perky in that particular room with Will, smugly, looking/cheering on?
It's become so cliche and boring.
I used to love this show, now it's so saccharine I barely tolerate it. So sad. :(


love Darren Criss, great cover. loved the little Finchel moments, that was so sweet! god i thought this hiatus will never be over


Gleek!! i thought it's a century-long hiatus!! just crazy about Finchel, Klaine and et al!! come back, quickly!!


Pumped for this hiatus to be over! Darren Criss > Katy Perry

Glee Quotes

[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.


I'm engorged with venom, and triumph.
