Glee: Season 3, Episode 16 :: Saturday Night Glee-ver
This week on Glee (Season 3, Episode 16), New Directions embraces the ‘70s. Read Kidzworld’s recap of “Saturday Night Glee-ver”, which aired April 17, 2012, to find out what you missed!
Mr. Schu tells New Directions that the theme for Nationals has been revealed – vintage. But, not everybody is excited about it. Some of the kids would rather sing newer, more contemporary songs. So, Mr. Schu decides to get the kids excited for disco, with songs from the hit 1970s movie Saturday Night Fever.
Most of the kids have no idea what they want to do, and graduation is right around the corner. Sue and Mr. Schu team up to hold a competition, hoping to motivate them to make decisions about the future. The winners will get a replica suit from the movie. The three finalists are Mercedes, Santana and Finn. Later in his office, Mr. Schu tells them they were chosen because the three of them don’t have any dreams for the future.
Kurt and Mercedes meet a fan of theirs – Wade (The Glee Project runner-up Alex Newell) – in the hallway at McKinley High. He is from a different high school and is a member of Vocal Adrenaline. Wade tells them he has a problem, and needs some advice. He says he isn’t truly comfortable with himself, and that he has an alter ego name Unique. He wants to bring Unique out on stage during. But, there’s a catch – Unique is a girl.
During Mr. Schu’s competition, Santana says she wants one thing: fame. Brittany thinks she knows one way she can make that happen – making their sex tape public. Although most people would be upset, Santana doesn’t really care how she becomes famous, as long as she does. Sue says that she can help her get famous in a more decent way, through a full-ride cheerleading scholarship.
