'Glee' instant reaction: Was the Lady Gaga episode its best yet?
Tonight’s Glee was definitely one of my favorite hours of the entire season. I had no idea that it would be so emotional…or that I would be so emotional! Seriously, how many of you Gleeks shed major tears during “Theatricality?” But the episode also had several shiver-inducing performances and laughs. I think that’s why it was so phenomenal: it does what Glee does best which is combining comedy, music, and emotional truths. [SPOILER ALERT FOR WEST COAST VIEWERS]“Bad Romance” was fantastic especially the choreography and the vocals by Chris Colfer. But I think my favorite performance of the night would have to be Rachel (Lea Michele) and Shelby (Idina Menzel) tackling “Poker Face.” Sweet Gaga that was amazing. I had chills and my eyes welled up. That song and scene were so loaded with pain and joy. Loved it.
The best plotline of the evening though was undoubtedly the relationship between Kurt (Colfer) and Finn (Cory Monteith). I don’t think I’ve seen a show on television tackle a gay/straight relationship so delicately and honestly. And if Mike O’Malley doesn’t win an Emmy for playing Burt Hummel, I will be sorely disappointed. That scene between the three of them ranks as one of Glee‘s greatest moments ever. Incredible.
Look for my full recap tomorrow morning! (UPDATE: Click over for Tim Stack’s full Glee does Lady Gaga recap.)
