UPDATE: “Up, Up, Up” and “I’m Still Standing” now posted!
Glee first listen Friday is BACK! HOORAY! The spring premiere, “Big Brother,” airs on Tuesday April 10.
Glee picks up after a 7 week hiatus, with the arrival of Blaine’s big brother, Cooper Anderson, arriving at McKinley to teach an “Actors Masterclass”. We also visit the aftermath of Quinn (Dianna Agron’s) terrible car accident. Plus, the kids go to an amusement park for senior skip day.
Blaine fans are in luck! Darren Criss is featured in 3 of the 5 tunes this week, and I’ve got them all here. Two are duets with Matt Bomer. The Duran Duran mashup is sung in the choir room. “Fighter” has a Blaine montage with a boxing motif that reportedly features a shower/shirtless season. Alrighty! You’ve all seen “Somebody That I Used to Know”–Blaine and Cooper finally have a showdown near the end of the episode.
There are 2 more songs in the episode, both sung by Quinn and Artie– “I’m Still Standing” and “Up Up Up” . The latter features a montage of the kids at an amusement park during senior skip day.
So far there are full streams for 3 of the 5 songs featured in the episode. As soon as I’ve got everything, I’ll update this post!
