Teaser audio clips from next week’s Glee episode “Duets” have surfaced, and they sound pretty damn awesome. (This post contains very minor spoilers from here on out.) Take a listen:
The pairings include Rachel and Finn singing “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart,” which will always belong to Lily and Marshal from HIMYM for me, but okay; Rachel and Kurt on a mash-up of “Get Happy” and “Happy Days are Here Again”; Sam and Quinn on “Lucky” ’; Mercedes and Santana destroying “River Deep, Mountain High”; and most spectacularly, Mike and Tina on “Sing” from A Chorus Line. There’s also a Kurt solo on “Le Jazz Hot” from Victor Victoria.
I am stoked to finally get some backstory on Mike “Other Asian” Chang, especially because “Sing” is such a hilarious (and notoriously difficult) song. It’s not the first time Glee has used music from that show, either. A version of “Montage Pt. 1 (Hello 12, Hello 13, Hello Love)” was recorded but cut from the episode “Hell-O,” and the piano intro for it played in “The Power of Madonna”:
This season’s premiere also featured Rachel singing “What I Did For Love,” although for my money, that song was needlessly shoved at the end of a packed episode, and it didn’t really get its due:

So yay for “Sing.” What duet are you most looking forward to, PopWatchers?
