The disco solos on the latest episode of Glee felt like stale covers by American Idol contestants. And it’s not just the last episode that fell flat. Although Glee is losing it’s edge, it’s attempting to win me over again with a cover of Whitney Houston’s “How Will I Know.” Following Whitney’s death in February, it was decided that the Fox show would pay tribute to her.
Glee’s version of the song is a lot more sombre than the bubbly version we’re used to, which gives it a fresh edge. This time, it’s Mercedes (Amber Riley) who showcases her vocals. We’re used to Glee being the “Rachel Show” but this season we’re seeing a lot of the other gleeks get solos.
The song will be part of next Tuesday’s Whitney tribute.
