Tuesday’s Glee features an eclectic set of songs including Kelly Clarkson’s “Cry”, which I’m guessing Rachel (Lea Michele) sings after she botches her NYADA audition in front of the professor, played by Whoopie Goldberg.

Kurt (Chris Colfer) is auditioning too and he performs the PERFECT song–“I Am Not The Boy Next Door” by Peter Allen also from the musical “Boy From Oz”.   Chris belts out plenty of high notes, and according to a tweet many many high kicks.  It should be fabulous.

Puck (Mark Salling) sings “School’s Out”,  but not if the boys from Glee can help it. They tutor him for graduation with a punk rock version of “Rain in Spain” from My Fair Lady. Yes, you heard that right.

There’s also a gorgeous acoustic rendition of Florence + The Machine’s “Shake it Out” sung by Mercedes (Amber Riley), Santana (Naya Rivera) and Tina (Jenna Ushkowitz). Brittany (Heather Morris) and Sugar (Vanessa Lengies)

Tina, Santana, Brittany and Sugar perform Cell Block Tango from Chicago.
