Mercedes Jones is played by Amber Riley.
We think it's safe to refer to Jones as a "diva." While she's a quality singer and valuable member of the glee club, she's not as talented as she thinks it is. But Mercedes makes us laugh each time she compares herself to Beyonce.
You go, girl!
My name is Mercedes Jones and I don't have a lot of friends at this school. I mean, it's not like I get picked on and folks are nice, I guess, but there sure are a lot of white folks here at McKinley. I mean, there is that one black kid but he's real boring. I'm a star at my church where everybody knows I got a big ass voice, but here? I'm just a nobody. But that's all gonna change real soon.Mercedes
Kurt: You busted my window.
Mercedes: Well, you busted my heart.
