Testing the show’s mostly PG content, the cast does a mean version of “Push It,” complete faux-grinding dance routine. Madonna gets a nod with “Like a Prayer” and the mattresses roll out for Van Halen’s “Jump.” And where would the live show be without the Glee Club’s version of Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance”? Everyone knows that the only thing better than one Gaga, are seven perfectly-turned out copies; kudos to Kurt for rocking the McQueen outfit without mishap. Rachel duets with surprise guest Jesse St. James (Jonathan Groff) on “Hello” and several audience members faint from sheer glee. Saving the best for last, Queen’s “Somebody to Love” ends the Glee live experience with a flurry of confetti and sparkly pyrotechnics.
Message received: this is not your regular small-town show choir!
