Darren Criss Will Cover Kelly Clarkson’s “Darkside” on Glee

Glee co-creator confirmed the rumor that Darren Criss–who plays Blaine on the FOX musical comedy–will be singing the Kelly Clarkson single “Darkside”

Seriously. I think my my head will explode. This will probably be the context: Despite hooking up with a new boy named Eli, Blaine is still in love with his boyfriend Kurt (Chris Colfer) who broke up with Blaine when he found out that he cheated. Blaine sings “Darkside” as a plea to Kurt. “Everybody has a Darkside…do you love Me…Nobody is picture perfect…but we’re worth it.” This will be AWESOME. I love Darren Criss’ voice, and as we know, he’s fabulous with the girl songs! (“Teenage Dream”)

“Darkside” will be the 4th time Kelly has been covered on Glee. The first time was “My Life Would Suck Without You” in Season 1. “Stronger” and “Cry” were covered in Season 3.

    Not sure of Kurt ever wants Blaine back after being so hurt that he feels like he is going to die… Then again, time heals most of the wounds.. I just predict that Klaine will not really get back together, but that the Glee makers will make the end open. so it can go either way…

    I am not really a fan of Klaine but I hope that both characters seperately  will find their own happiness with their own “love of their lives”…as long as Blaine keeps on singing…

    Darren singing Hopelessly Devoted To You… I was ready to forgive Blaine. Now he’s singing Darkside… (I hate to say this)… all is forgiven. lo!

    You are a kind person… I would like to know more about Blaine’s dark side… the “Big Brother ” episode was not enough… Heard that maybe they will explore Blaine’s past with regards to him being gaybashed at the exit of a danceparty.

    And as a balance, I would like to see more of Kurt’s dark and mean side as well. Then again, looking from the Xmas spoilers, I think the Glee bosses just love to see Kurt cry..ugh.

    Just saw on tumblr a picture of 4 men together: Chris Colfer, Adam Shankman (director or so ?), Mike O Malley and Darren Criss…*melt*

    Woohoo another Kelly song :)

    Of course. Blaine can cheat and it can be forgiven by everyone five minutes after it happens. But poor Quinn (who 1. is female and 2. was purposely written to be the wedge between Rachel and her perfect man, Finn) cheats on Finn way back in season one and she is – three seasons later – still known as the cheater.

    Double standards suck.

    Kurt was a little mean in Season 1, since then he’s been the ‘nice’ boy. I can’t wrap my head around if he turns mean again. It’ll be like multiple personalty disorder. But then again this is glee. It happens all the time. Like Blaine is a cheater. lol!

  • jennyl2

    It’s didn’t take 5 minutes. It took for 4 weeks of hiatus and 2 sorry songs. lol! He’ll always be a cheater. Just a forgiven one. ;)

    I am female but don’t worry, I haven’t forgiven Blaine yet…. even if it is hard to resist those sad Blaine-puppy eyes…And also because the actual physical “cheating” has not really been shown on TV… (I think they will show Eli C in one of the upcoming episodes though… )

    But then I remember Kurt’s tears and what he said the next morning when he met Finn … Sigh… not easy to forget those words… especially being a Kurt fan.
    Even when Blaine will sing “Hopelessly devoted to you” :-(

  • Axxxel

    Yeah, true…Blaine as a cheater was kind of out of the blue… So it will not be that easy for me to forget about it…even if they don’t mention it again in the upcoming episodes…

  • Axxxel

    He can be mean again but maybe more in his lovelife… as a revenge of the way he was hurt… So he sleeps with the first boy that comes around… and when he meets his father Burt, he will feel guilty because he will remember about what Burt said during the sextalk…
