Glee Season 4 “Naked” Preview – “This Is The New Year” (VIDEO)

Thank you Ryan Murphy! The Glee co-creator dropped an awesome preview to next week’s “Naked” episode on twitter! Watch New Directions sing a tribute version of A Great Big World’s “This Is The New Year.”

This is an absolutely wonderful performance. I am loving the optimism. I’m guessing this number closes the episode.

In “Naked,” which airs on January 31 on FOX, New Directions produces a sexy calendar to raise money for their trip to Regionals. But, unfortunately,  Blaine and the other gleeks  have to step in when Sam’s obsession with his body reaches extreme levels. Rachel is faced with a personal dilemma when cast in a student film–she’s expected to go topless! Fellow graduates, Quinn and Santana visit her in New York to help out with her dilemma.  The battle between Finn and Sue reaches a new level.

    One of the best group numbers Glee has EVER done! Amazing and joyful! I can’t stop watching it.

    seems from the groupnumber that the Sam-Blaine bromance is intact ? Fingers crossed.

  • Montavilla

    Fellow graduates, Queen and Santana visit her in New York to help out with her dilemma.  

    I know that’s a typo, but I’m suddenly imagining Brian May and Roger Taylor listening earnestly to Rachel and nodding sympathetically.

    Aw, I just love that group song! :)

    And why, hello Darren Criss.  He’s so modest. :)

    These guys are the funniest goofballs. And wouldn’t it be funny if they actually made that calendar available for sale? In fact I think people were asking Ryan Murphy that exact question when he stopped tweeting and people thought he was hacked. People were misled into thinking the calendar really existed. And Darren appears to pretty much admit he’s photoshopped, unless he’s joking.

    There is NO way that Darren Criss does not work out. Have you seen his arms? I doubt they retouched that a lot. And I have a weird feeling this may NOT be the end of the episode. I am sure the song is to celebrate them being back in the regionals. Either way, I absolutely adore this performance. And Darren does a pretty good job too!

    I would like to know why we are getting some of the videos that say they are  private

  • DD

    Oh wow, the video was pulled for copyright. I wonder if Fox realizes if THE Ryan Murphy posted it himself! lol

    So yeah that mash-up of “Hot In Herre” with “Angel is the Centerfold” was awesome. Perfectly ridiculous choreography to fit with this whacky mash-up but it turned out to be catchy too (someone put it on youtube at )

    Maybe Pharrell should produce a new J. Geils Band track because seriously this mash up sounded great
