As Glee, its cast and fans prepare to say goodbye to the show; the show bows out with its final swan song tonight;(20th March) (an episode reference there for those that missed it, ha!) I have had time to reflect on all my favourite performances over the past six years. Who can believe how fast the time has gone?! Truth is, Glee has played an important part in many peoples’ lives. The show can be thanked for forming friendships across the globe, making a massive impact on pop culture and of course taking up MBs in people’s iTunes libraries. Continue reading
When Cory Monteith passed away in July 2013, I, amongst floods of people were deeply upset by the loss of such an inspirational and admirable person who was taken at such a young age. He was such an amazing human being and an equally talented actor who had so much ahead of him. Getting to play the role of Finn Hudson in Glee really changed his life. Along with his generosity and good sense of humor, Cory was grateful, something which was very apparent. He wasn’t much of a singer at the start of the show but really developed a beautiful voice – my favourite male voice on the show. Below is a countdown of my best Finn songs/performances. Previously in my Santana Lopez song post I separated it in to solos and group numbers/duets/back-up, however after revisiting the repertoire it seems Finn didn’t have a lot of solos to justify cutting out some of his sensational duets, therefore i have combined solos and duets.

A tribute to the man who defied the odds and became an idol to millions of people across the globe, Cory Monteith, this one’s for you buddy!
Whilst I think Season 4 of Glee has probably been the best in terms of song choices, there are still songs I would like to see covered on the show. I’m not sure if it’s just me, but sometimes when I’m listening to the radio and a song comes on, it think ‘why haven’t Glee covered this yet?’ then I go on to think who I can imagine singing it etc. etc. Don’t get me wrong, I have LOVED so many songs Glee has covered – I mean they’ve just celebrated their 500th number and I’ve probably liked 85% of them! I should probably thank Ryan Murphy for introducing me to songs I might not have heard/or liked prior to the show! The writers get a lot of slack, due to the lack of character development, consistency, and some of the storylines in general, but if there is anything Glee does best, it’s the music. Below is a list of 20 songs I would like to see covered on Glee – including which character(s) I would like to see sing the song:
Many have said that this season of Glee has been the best… wait for it… in terms of the song selection. Now that we’ve finished season 4 (sobs in the corner) I thought I would countdown the best songs of the season (in my own opinion of course) The Glee cast have covered 131 songs this season, so as you can imagine whittling down the list to just 25 was super hard, here goes: (Possible spoilers ahoy!!!)
So it’s that time of year again, when all our favourite TV shows finish up for the season. If there is one thing I am, it’s impatient. Girls only finished a month ago, yet I feel like I’ve been waiting for the next season for years. The Following finished on Monday with a MASSIVE cliffhanger, now it’s Glee’s time.
4×22 ‘All Or Nothing’ is the focus of many Glee storylines, this is the episode where everything should be getting tied up, however, unlike the past three seasons, this one will be different. S5 will actually be a continuation of events.
