'Glee': Fans to choose 100th episode songs
Glee fans, affectionately known as Gleeks, will finally get the chance to directly impact what happens on the musical series, now in its fifth season. Fox has announced Gleeks Choice, an online initiative that calls for fans to vote for the songs to be “remixed” for the show’s upcoming 100th episode. The episode airs March 18, so there’s plenty of time for Ryan Murphy and Co. to craft a story around the top 10 chosen songs. Fans can vote for up to 10 songs at a time and can submit votes as many times as their Gleekish hearts desire.
The choice of songs includes notable Glee moments like Rachel and Kurt’s “Defying Gravity,” Santana’s “Valerie,” and Artie’s “Safety Dance.” Also included is the pilot’s iconic rendition of Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’,” which remains a fan favorite. Previews of each song are included with each choice — so don’t worry if you can’t remember what Gwyneth Paltrow’s rendition of “Landslide” sounds like.
Glee airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. on Fox.
Jane Lynch, Lea Michele, and high school anxiety star in Fox’s campy musical.
