Sectionals are here! After last week’s lovefest, the group is back to business minus SPOILER ALERT one of its strongest members. Yes, Kurt has flown the coop to become a Dalton Academy Warbler, and tonight he’ll be joining Blaine and the rest of his group on Train’s “Hey, Soul Sister” (with help from the Tufts Beelzebubs!). Even for someone who’s griped about the song’s ubiquity (especially in advertising), those cute little Warblers managed to leave me humming along all afternoon. Damn this show for overpowering everything I once stood for!
When the stakes are high, Glee doesn’t disappoint. But Will New Directions come out on top? What can we expect from third group, The Hipsters? Are you psyched for a Gleeky version of Florence and the Machine’s “Dog Days Are Over”? After you watch “Special Education,” head back here to let us know what you think. Plus, be on the look-out for Tim Stack’s full recap and performance grades after midnight.
