Glee: Why Kurt and Blaine Haven’t Kissed Yet
“That’s the greatest part about it,” Criss told me last night at the Trevor Project benefit. “It’s this wonderful dance—dancing that fine line which ultimately is more enticing than the actual thing.”
Not that Gleeks would mind if the so-called actual thing happened already. Don’t forget to show your support by joining our hashtag campaign on Twitter: #kurtblaineKISSalready.
Smooching aside, Criss says the duet was inspired by a Dean Martin rendition of the holiday classic. “Isn’t it sweet?,” he said of his Colfer’s performance. “I thought it was really well done and cute and really sincere. I think Chris sounds so wonderful on it.”

Cowell Denies X Factor Fix Claim
Simon Cowell has defended The X Factor from claims that Sunday’s results show was a fix, saying: “We haven’t done anything wrong.”
Fans have been angered by the decision to let the judges pick which act went home from the bottom two on Sunday, leading to the departure of popular contestant Mary Byrne. At the same stage in previous years, viewers got to decide which singers went through to the final.
Some viewers have accused the ITV1 show of making the change to allow Cher Lloyd, 17, to get into next weekend’s final rather than Byrne.
But Cowell told The Sun: “We haven’t done anything wrong. All the artists knew there was going to be a sing-off. Mary and Cher were told last Monday to prepare a song for a sing-off if necessary.”

Exclusive: “Glee”‘s Chris Colfer is Living the Teenage Dream
After a little joking about what he gets if he wins – he said he’d like a pony, and if he gets one, he’ll definitely name him “Elton” – the conversation turned to the the clip of Blaine (Darren Criss) singing “Teenage Dream” to Colfer’s character, Kurt. The clip was, and is, solidly in the lead for “Best gay moment of the year,” even ahead of the overturning of Prop 8 and the “It Gets Better” anti-bullying campaign, for which Colfer made a video.
“I have to tell them all that I so appreciate that,” he said, “But I think that the ‘It Gets Better’ campaign and the federal court decision overturning Prop 8 are much more important.” Still, he agreed, both “Teenage Dream” and the more recent, holiday-themed “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” feature a kind of flirtatious singing that’s unlike anything ever seen between two high school boys on television before, and he definitely understands why moments of visibility like that are important to GLBT youth.

Q&A: ‘Glee’ Creator Ryan Murphy Reveals Plans for Rest of Season
Looking at the other nominations for Best Pop Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocals, two of the other songs are the original versions of songs that have been performed on Glee: Paramore’s “The Only Exception” and Train’s “Hey, Soul Sister.”
I know, and looking at that group we’re actually covering one of the other nominees: we’re doing Maroon 5′s “Misery.” There’s only one nominee in that category we haven’t done, so that was funny to us.
What can you reveal about “Misery”?
“Misery” is a track that Blaine (Darren Criss) is going to do with the Warblers. I’m friendly with Adam Levine, and he texted me saying, ‘I think it’s time we get Maroon 5 on Glee.’ I said, ‘I agree, I think it’d be great.’ I love that song, I love Adam’s performance on that song, so we’re doing that in an upcoming spring episode.
