It’s official. Darren Criss can do no wrong. We’re beginning to think he’s the eighth wonder of the world.
Thanks to this clip of Blaine (Criss) and Kurt (Chris Colfer) singing “Baby It’s Cold Outside” from “Glee’s” Christmas episode (airing Dec. 7), the show’s new fan favorite is now three for three. Is there anything he can’t do? Granted, we are a bit biased since “Baby It’s Cold Outside” is one of our favorite Christmas songs ever, but Criss and Colfer’s voices complement each other so well on the song and they have great chemistry. (Also, where can we get one of those blazers? Very flattering.)
In an interview with Just Jared, Criss talked about the duet: “I
was so thrilled when we got to sing ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside.’ I thought
it was a great choice, classy song. It’s kind of a creepy song [laughs] but in context, I think it’s rather charming,” he says. “They did a very great job
with the arrangement and I think it’s going to be really hard to think
of another duet to top that. I’ll think of something eventually, but
right now I think I can get a lot of mileage out of that one.”
And since the “Glee” folks were in the holiday spirit, they also gave us another gift: Lea Michele’s Rachel Berry singing “Merry Christmas, Darling,” adorable red beret and pretty curls included. “Finnchel” fans may want to look away though, as we see Finn (Cory Monteith) watching Santana (Naya Rivera) put the star on top of the tree as Rachel watches longingly. No need for Sam and Quinn fans to cover their eyes; their favorite couple is seen kissing under the mistletoe.
P.S.We’re really glad Rachel got her solo groove back so quickly. While it was nice to see some of the other glee kids get their chance to shine in “Special Education,” no one can solo like Rachel Berry can solo.
Watch the clips here and don’t miss “A Very Glee Christmas” on Tuesday, Dec. 7, at 8 p.m. ET on FOX.
