Glee-cast-dumpster_dlWhile we won’t be seeing a new Glee episode until Nov. 11 due to Fox’s coverage of the World Series, we have a peek at some of the cover tunes you’ll be hearing in upcoming episodes. The Nov. 11 episode “Wheels” features a soaring “diva-off” between Rachel (Lea Michele) and Kurt (Chris Colfer) over Wicked’s “Defying Gravity”—be prepared to get misty. Also, Artie (Kevin McHale) and the club do a wheelchair number set to Tina Turner’s “Proud Mary.” In the coming weeks, look for group versions of Van Halen’s “Jump” and John Lennon’s “Imagine,” which the glee club performs with a rival deaf choir. Says co-creator Ryan Murphy, “Everyone who sees it sheds a tear.” Also, Finn (Cory Monteith) does Paul Anka’s “You’re Having My Baby” and Rachel will tackle the Barbara Streisand/Funny Girl classic “Don’t Rain on My Parade”. “It was my dream and I could not believe that I got to do that song,” says Michele.
