Image Credit: FoxHappy Glee day, PopWatchers! My tears from last week’s flashback to Kurt and Burt’s tea party have finally dried, and tonight’s episode will reinstate some good old-fashioned competition amongst glee club members. Because is there anything better than seeing Rachel Berry freak out over potentially not getting all the solos?
In “Duets,” look for a cutesy Rachel and Finn on “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart” (anybody else over these two as a couple?), Quinn and Sam (a future New Directions couple?) singing Jason Mraz and Colbie Caillat’s “Lucky,” and a debut from the newest New Directions couple — Tina and Mike Chang — who will tackle the notoriously difficult “Sing,” from A Chorus Line. Plus, Santana and Mercedes finally join forces (what was taking them so long?) to become McKinley’s “Undisputed Top Bitches.” While two divas are always better than one, I’m most excited about Mike Chang singing with Tina. Yes, Mike “Other Asian” Chang, known for his mute ways and killer dance moves, finally gets a chance to be heard. Perhaps we’ll get some details about his background? What do we know about Mike Chang, anyway, except that he’s got great rhythm, great abs, and spends his summers working at Asian camp?
Which is your favorite New Directions power couple? Which Glee duet would you love to see? (Sue Sylvester and Coach Beist, natch.) After you watch tonight’s episode, head back here to let us know what you think. And don’t forget to look for Tim Stack’s full recap after midnight.
