Glee: Season 2, Episode 16 :: Original Song

Mar 14, 2011

This week on Glee (Season 2, Episode 16), the glee club performs some original songs as they compete for the Regional title. Also, a long-awaited kiss finally happens. Check out our recap of “Original Song,” which aired on March 15, 2011.

Kurt and Blaine

“Regionals, you’ve just met our opening number” Blaine announces as the Warblers wrap up their rendition of ‘Misery.’ But Kurt isn’t so cheery. Unimpressed with Blaine’s attitude, he tells his crush that the rest of the Warblers are feeling a bit left out. Kurt’s own misery is compounded when his pet bird Pavarotti dies. When he sings a tribute to the pet – ‘Blackbird’ by The Beatles – Blaine realizes that he wants to sing a duet with Kurt. More than that, he wants to be more than singing partners and the duet is just an excuse to spend more time together. At last, the two share their long-awaited kiss.

Original

‘Empire State of Mind’? Too urban. ‘Don’t Stop Believing’? Too cliché. The glee club throws modern music to the curb and embraces creativity with a collection of original music in this week’s episode. Worried about the upcoming Regionals competition, Rachel suggests the best way to impress the judges at the singing contest is to perform original songs.

But, the original songs aren’t all that they’re cracked up to be. Santana writes a song about Sam’s lips, Rachel creates a tune about being an only child and Mercedes sings about saying no to her parents.

Meanwhile, Quinn is not giving up on her mission to win Finn back. Plus, this week Quinn decides that in order to rule the school she needs to win prom queen – according to her, prom queens live five times longer than regular humans – with Finn at her side. The best way to accomplish this? Befriend Rachel. Unfortunately, Rachel overhears Quinn’s conversation with Finn and decides to approach her. Quinn tells Rachel that she doesn’t belong in Finn’s life and will never find a happy ending. All this drama prompts Rachel to write a masterpiece of her own.

Regionals

Aural Intensity starts off the competition with their rendition of ‘Jesus Is My Friend.’ Their performance is followed up with Blaine and Kurt’s duet of ‘Candles,’ a romantic performance that wins over the audience, and the Warbler’s version of Pink’s ‘Raise Your Glass.’ Rachel starts of the singing for the New Directions with her own original song inspired by Finn. Although a bit bland, it isn’t terrible. The rest of the glee club jumps in with their group effort, another original song that wins them the Regional title. Rachel also wins the title of MVP and the New Directions start planning their National set list.

Glee is taking a short break and will be back in April. Will Kurt and Blaine become a couple? Will Quinn and Finn make it last? Stay tuned for more Glee!
