“Grilled Cheesus” added a touch of faith to “Glee’s” repertoire. While we still haven’t seen any sign of the Christian character who is set to join New Directions, the McKinley High students got a healthy dose of God in their songbooks this week.
While trying to support her friend Kurt (Chris Colfer), Mercedes (Amber Riley) took center stage on not one but two songs. She failed to move him when she sang Whitney Houston’s “I Look to You,” but he seemed comforted when she performed “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” a Simon & Garfunkel classic, with her church choir.
Rachel (Lea Michele) lent her support to Kurt’s ailing dad (Mike O’Malley) with “Papa Can You Hear Me,” from “Yentl,” while Finn (Cory Montieth) did his best Michael Stipe impression on R.E.M.’s “Losing My Religion.”
Kurt’s performance of the Beatles’ “I Want To Hold Your Hand” gave us a whole new perspective on an old favorite song, and we absolutely loved Mark Salling‘s rendition of Billy Joel’s “Only the Good Die Young.”
Our favorite song was “One of Us,” by Joan Osbourne, which was performed by the entire club. Those are always the most fun, aren’t they?
