I totally thinks its believable that today's music oriented youth would have enough knowledge of MJ to be inspired to cover his music. Anyone with a passion for music will most certainly inform themselves of all genres of music past or present. So I don't think this was too far of a stretch. I love Sam and Mercedes and Go Finchel! My favorite covers were Scream, Bad, Smooth Criminal, and Black or White. I wish they would have covered Billy Jean and Beat It.
My favourite cover was definitely Santana and Sebastian's, it was amazing, but I was surprised to that a lot of them were really good! I disagree with you though in that YES I completely believe that kids born in 95 could appreciate/know Michael Jackson because they LOVE music. When you are passionate about something, such as Rachel & Kurt with old Broadway musicals (even though they are born in 95), you know all the music genres, the greats, and the like. It just makes sense. I was born in 1990 and I know pretty well all Michael Jackson songs. It's just something you know, and when you love music and want to build a career around it, you just know.
I know he is gay. But for a moment I wished he wasn't because those two were amazing in their peformance.
Agree that Artie's anger was a bit random, and clearly there just for an excuse to let Kevin McHale dance - otherwise it would have made much more sense coming from, say, Kurt (whose commitment to the high road is becoming annoying and unbelievable). But I still liked it, mostly because I feel like I've been waiting for someone to make exactly that argument (that it's unfair to expect kids to endure abuse and adversity with smiles on their faces and without retaliating) to Mr. Schue, who does seem to think that all problems can be solved by singing about them.
Best performance of the night was definetly "Smooth Criminal". I am glad the writers have noticed Naya's talent. Umm there are generations and generations of people that love Michael Jackson's music. I wasnt born when the Jackson Five were popular but I love their songs together as a family too. So is Quinn going to be written off... I don't know why Rachel talked to Quinn anyway. I think Tina needs screen time and what was the point of the glee project winner?
@Kimmie Sebastian is gay. HE wouldn't kiss Santana.
Thought the performances were pretty good. Have to say Smooth Criminal and Black or White were my 2 favorites.
Being in a choir in my high school years- my one main beef with Glee has been this- once a team- any team (sports, academic, choir) succeeds- they are not the bottom of the pecking order-I would love to see the Glee club operate more from a position of success. That is why I don't see the purpose of Warblers doing the slushee on Glee members- the whole point of the slushee was the jocks versus gleeks. Warblers are in the same boat- does not seem consistent. Liked some of the covers- pretty apparent Rachel only accepted when she thought she had no plans like her counterparts. Also, don't trust Blaine- think this episode feels like a setup that he is still a Warbler at heart...
It's the sweeps period, so I was expecting a filler. Naturally that is exactly what I got. I do hope slushis' are banned in schools now. My inner myth-buster tells me they have a lot of newton/m2 or g-force damage.
I thought Quinn's response was quite adult. How many people actually marry there childhood sweetheart. Moreso, an arranged marriage coupled with serial monogamy seems more realistic; at least stats say that from divorce studies.
But I agree that this seems to be a great Santana season.
I was born in 96 and i worship MJ and so do a lot of the kids i go to school with. whether the fact that my school being an arts school has anything to do with that is up for debate but i kno MJ was and still is a very big influence. i pretty much detest Glee now; ever since the nationals ep last year, i've noticed the writing really declining, so now all i do is listen to the music.
Too many heartfelt speeches. Too much rehashing the same "emotions" - too much talking without actually saying anything that progresses the storyline. Why has it gotten so sappy? I love Finchel, but they're beginning to get on my nerves. Rachel was more mature in Season 1 than she is now. She was never an indecisive person. Now she dithers about everything, not just Finn's proposal. And I thought she was going to help Finn find a new dream. Do the writers even remember from one episode to the next what they've written? Also, how the hell did Quinn get into Yale at all, let alone early admissions?
My 10 year old daughter LOVES Michael Jackson...believable. :O)
I don't know if normal kids their age would be THAT into MJ, but particularly with the revival of his music after his death, they could be just discovering its awesomeness. I liked the episode for the covers, which I didn't think were bad. I did appreciate that Sebastian became an actual villain, instead of just a romantic foil for Kurt and Blaine; sometimes a show needs someone to hate as much as it needs someone to love.
I will add this: I think the show works best when they're preparing for competition or in the competition. It was nice to hear that they were even thinking about Regionals, because week after week, I find myself forgetting that they're supposed to be facing off against other clubs to ultimately win Nationals. Like Matt said, if the numbers would stop being so concert-like, I probably wouldn't roll my eyes as much during the episodes.
I agree. The song Artie did was just very random and just took up screentime.
Rachel and Finn's song was good but their storyline in this episode felt not as important so I really did roll my eyes whenever I hear them talking about the proposal.
I was never a fan of Sam and Mercedes because to me it didn't feel like they had a thing going. The song was good though but was just super cheesy .
Hands down, the best performance of the night, aka the one scene that saved this episode for me Sanatan and Sebastian's performance of "Smooth Criminal". I must not be the only one that felt major sexual tension between them, lol. Their chemistry was amazing. I hope to see more of them together bickering in the future. I love Brittany and Santana but I wanted him to kiss her at the end of that song, haha. Anyway, amazing performance. This and Rumor Has It/ Somebody Like You and Suvivor Mah up are my favorite performances this season. Santana is awesome!
My 16 year old knows and likes Michael Jackson. So yes. It is totally believable.
i took the look rachel had when kurt said something about finn that she remembered she said yes and was regretting it bc she only did it thinking she got rejected. i forsee a break up in their future bc you can't bounce back easily from deciding not to marry someone. hope they make it though love finchel
