Ok. I have to comment on last night’s Glee. I have been a Glee fan since episode one, but even I can admit that it hasn’t been the same for awhile. It’s stopped being a topic of conversation for me and I don’t look forward to it like I used to – but I’m a pretty loyal person about these kind of things, so it never found it’s way off of my DVR list. So I’m totally up-to-date on McKinley High.
Let me tell you – I absolutely loved last night’s tribute to Whitney Houston. Many of the actors on Glee are great singers (for the most part – I’m looking at you Britney) and while they did an outstanding job – their renditions didn’t even come close to touching Whitney’s. Which just shows how talented she really was.
But I have to commend them. I particularly liked the very first song; a beautiful a cappella version of “How Will I Know” which culminated in an empty spotlight, obviously intended for Ms. Houston. I mean, “How Will I Know” is just an amazing song – probably my favorite Whitney song, if I had to pick. It’s beautiful any way you look at it – in it’s original form, done a cappella, and when remixed into a dance number. So many of her songs are versatile and have different versions, all of which I love. Sigh. Why yes, I am a huge Whitney fan, why do you ask?
I also appreciated that they started the episode with just the divas – Mercedes, Santana, Rachel and Kurt – the ones that truly respected Whitney.
And I could very easily go on and discuss each and every cover performed last night. However, I think I’ve used up all of the interest anyone may have in this subject. So enough about that! Rumor has it that Scott will be D-O-N-E with busy season tonight! It’s still just a rumor and I’ll believe it when I see it. But here’s hoping!
