• We all know what Glee was. We either loved it, hated it, hated how much we loved it, or loved it and then hated it and then came back around to loving it. To be a Glee fan was to live a confused and tortured existence. It was an undeniable ( Read more... )

Lucky being on any list is absolute blasphemy.

I'd probably replace it with Lea and Kurt's Happy Days or For Good duets, in spite of Kurt's awful falsetto.

I never hated a song as much as I hated Lucky and I actually liked Colbie!

No bullshit but even thinking about the 'I wanna hold your hand' cover completely destroys me -

Also worth noting are both of Harmony's peformances (man, do I wish they kept her around for more than this, she was a FANTASTIC foil to Rachel) -

Also, since the OP didn't specify musical perfomances this one has to make it too -

The edits and zooms on faces in that rant clip absolutely make it.

I really liked the confessions/it's my life and walking on sunshine/halo mashups, and I love their version of defy Gravity too, more than the original oop

I can't listen to Idina Menzel singing Wicked because even at her prime her voice wasn't my cup of tea, so I agree there. Lea's voice >>>

Chris' rendition was cute too.

Imo Idina is too shouty, I feel like she's yelling at me every time she goes for a high note lol same reason why I've liked let it go and into the unknown covers more than the originals

When I discovered Willemijn Verkaik in the original German cast recording of Wicked, I could never go back to listening to Idina's Wicked songs. And then Willemijn did the German and Dutch singing voices of Elsa, so I got double lucky. (Sorry, I had to stan).

ia. I think Idina's voice can be nice, but she strains too much to reach notes that aren't comfortable for her and ends up sounding like she's screaming.

I always thought Mercedes' rendition of Bust Your Windows was better than the original lol

Bohemian Rhapsody? Automatically invalid, that performance was a mess almost made me quit the show.

Not my favorite performance but cause also it was a mess but my favorite Glee cover was Toxic by Britney, they did a lot of good covers
