The TV Guide behind the scenes account from the filming of tomorrow night’s Glee episode “Original Song” is chock FULL of spoilers. Like this:
The competition is fiercer this time than it has been — no deaf kids choir, no stolen set list. A crew member tells the audience they’ll want to be extra rowdy for the boys’ set — Pink’s “Raise Your Glass, ” a second ode to underdogs — because “it’s the most rocking-est” of the performances. Chris Colfer and Riley exchange cheek kisses as they swap spots on stage; at this point, Kurt’s still a Warbler, but that will change very soon. Per usual, Darren Criss leads the way, while Colfer does a lot of dusting the dirt off his shoulders.
But can either group compete with Sue’s Aural Intensity? Last time, they performed a mash-up of “Magic” and “You Raise Me Up” for judges Olivia Newton-John and Josh Groban. This time, they’re kissing up to righteous home-schooling, Tea Partier Tammy Jean Albertson (Kathy Griffin) and Sister Mary Constance (Loretta Devine.) How? Four words: “Jesus Is My Friend.”
If the audience is any indication — they lapped up the group’s, er, holy choreography — this sing-off will be close.
And, oh yeah, Chris Colfer teases a Klaine Kiss! “Original Song” marks the first time the Glee gang sings…you guessed it..original songs written just for the episode. You can listen to the three new tunes plus 4 more covers from the episode HERE and watch a video preview HERE.
