Glee Songs For October 7, Season 1 Episode 6 (Video)

Below is video of the two songs performed on the FOX television show Glee from Oct 7 (Season 1 Episode 6).

To light a spark, Mr. Schuester (Matthew Morrison) split New Directions into boys and girls and had them compete in a mash-up mash-off.

What’s a mash-up you ask?

As Mr. Schuester explained, a mash-up is “when you take two songs and mash them together to make an even richer explosion of musical expression.”

The boys performed a mash-up of Bon Jovi’s “It’s My Life” and Usher’s “Confessions.” The girls did a mash-up of yet another Beyoncé song, “Halo,” and “Walking On Sunshine” by Katrina and The Waves.

As always, Rachel (Lea Michele) was brilliant while Finn (Cory Monteith) bounced around the stage like the world’s biggest spaz.

While Michele looks like she was born for a stage, Monteith’s performances are a cross between drunken karaoke and a Grand mal seizure. Fortunately, Monteith’s unatural gyrations don’t ruin the boys’ mash-up.

Our favorite aspect of the performances, especially the boys’, is the noticing the difference between who’s on the show to act and who’s on the show to dance.

There are two “dance ringers” in each group but the difference in hoofin’ it is more pronounced with the boys than with the girls. Please except this as a compliment but women are generally better dancers, or at least look better, when moving to music.
