'Glee' countdown: The kids go wild, and if anyone does Ke$ha, please let it be Brittany!
Image Credit: Adam Rose/FoxAs Sandra predicted last week, Glee got me to do the impossible: fall madly in love a Justin Bieber song. Seriously, something about Sam’s awesomely shameless rendition of “Baby” opened up a level of Bieber love within me I didn’t know I was capable of. But can Glee pull off the same trick again? In this week’s episode (titled “Blame It on the Alcohol”), we’ll hear a song from Ke$ha, another one of those love-’em-or-hate-’em artists. I haven’t been able to appreciate Ke$ha since her glow-in-the-dark SNL performance, but if anyone can flip my opinion of her, it’s Brittany. From the looks of the preview photos, Brittany’s a dead ringer for our favorite (or maybe not-so-favorite?) glitter-faced party girl. Here’s hoping she gets a dance solo that tops “I’m a Slave 4 U” from the Britney episode.
The episode also promises to be a Very Special one that touches on underage drinking. I’m excited to see how Glee tackles this teen comedy cliché: I’m hoping for a wild party while the parents are away, where way more people show up than are invited, a game of spin the bottle leads to regrettable kisses, and somebody better knock over an expensive vase! Of course, I also hope lessons will be learned by all. Underage drinking is bad, mmmkay?
After the episode, return here to sound off about it, and check back early in the morning for Sandra’s recap!
