You have to see this new Glee video! After Sebastian (Grant Gustin) hits Blaine (Darren Criss) in the face with a slushie causing a trip to the hospital, Santana (Naya Rivera) pays the evil Warbler a little visit at Dalton to kick his ass.

What results is an epic face off as the two sing “Smooth Criminal” accompanied by 2Cellos.

The performance is from the Glee Michael Jackson episode set to air on FOX Tuesday January 31.

    I don’t even know why, but slightly disappointed by this. Something felt just a little bit flat for me, emotionally.

    1st Naya is so Hot in this outfit.
    2nd why is it so dark? they need to use the camera they used in the behind the scenes clip because it wasn’t dark.

  • Sandra Ballmann

    This is great.  Naya looks hot.  I think she is the best girl singer of the show.  She is the most interesting vocally for me.

    Grant is keeping up.  I like that.  I love his character.  He’s again interesting, and  sometimes assholes make good tv.

    Love this! Love the cellos. Naya and Grant are great on this song. :)

    I guess I missed something – I don’t get it. She was going to kick his butt?  Hmmm.  Guess I will have to see it in context with the show.  Not liking him so much.  Loved Naya on this though.

    The three entertainers were equally important.  Naya with her hotness and voice, Grant appearing menacing, and the cello and their players.  Very nice!

    LOL. Somebody on tumblr pointed out that you can see a camera man in the frame at about the :33 second mark. Sloppy!

    Grant is smouldering. I think he is the perfect spoil for Kurt.

    Yup. You sure can. When they zoom out away from Naya + Grant, you can see a guy in the right hand corner….

    Grant has a video interview up at eonline and he’s quite the charmer. Nothing like his character. Says Sebastian is coming back “in a big way” after the Michael episode but he can’t reveal it. I can’t help but think he gets expelled from Dalton and ends up at McKinley.

    You’re right on both counts. (it’s foil, not spoil, btw)

  • Sandra Ballmann

    Well, last season during the “Somewhere only we know” performance they had Brittany going down the stairs twice. So, this isn’t the first case of sloppy editing on the part of Glee.
