Rachel had her Funny Girl callback while the glee club faced a few obstacles before getting to regionals.
Brittany’s SAT score was so unbelievable that MIT had to see for themselves if she was the real deal, and even though she scored a zero on their “simple” math test, her crayon doodling somehow showed she was the greatest mind since Albert Einstein (don’t ask me, I was never good at math). They want her to join the school right away and the shock leads to a classic Brittany meltdown, leaving the glee club wondering if she’ll even show up to regionals.
Rachel had her callback for Fanny Bryce and what better way to end the season and show them her chops than a Celine Dion ballad. Her rendition of To Love You More was UNBELIEVABLE. Seriously, though, any time there is a Rachel Berry ballad in the first five minutes you know you’re in for something good.
Nev Schulman was the only thing missing from this episode because the end of Katie was definitely worthy of an MTV special. Ryder went crazy from all the secrecy surrounding his online lover and threatened to forego regionals unless the catfish fessed up. Marley took the blame, but it turned out she was just covering for Unique, who wanted to make a real connection without her identity getting in the way. What she did was wrong, but would Ryder have opened up had he known? My guess is probably not.

It’s a night of last chances as the gleeks look for purpose and NYADA gives Kurt one last shot.
Here’s what you need to know from last night’s episode, “Swan Song.”
Moving on – After collapsing last week, Marley is thankfully okay. However, the New Directions were forced to forfeit sectionals after coming to her rescue during the performance. With Sue taking over the choir room, there’s nowhere for the club to rehearse, forcing the kids to find new extra-curriculars. Blaine looks pretty good as a Cheerio, but I would pay money to see Artie perform alongside the marching band (plume and all).
The golden ticket – Freshmen DO NOT perform at the NYADA’s Winter Showcase. Unless that freshman happens to be Rachel of course. After proving her voice is unmatched during the Cassandra vs. Rachel sing-off of “All That Jazz,” she goes on to win the showcase. She may not have the best moves, but nobody slays a ballad like Rachel Berry.
Santana who? – Santana and Brittany are officially over, and that means Sam aka Trouty Mouth is free to make his move on Brittany. While the wrath of lesbian bloggers holds her back at first, the allure of those luscious lips proves to be too much for Britt to bear, and the two share an adorable kiss. Good thing Sam has extra Chapstick on hand.

This week, Brittany and Blaine battle it out for Student Body President and Sarah Jessica Parker guest stars as Kurt’s boss at Vogue, Isabelle Klempt.
Here’s what you need to know from last night’s episode, “Makeover”:
1. Blaine’s running for office — Blaine decides to challenge Brittany for her spot as McKinley High’s student body president and chooses Sam AKA Trouty Mouth as his running mate. As soon as Blaine strips off his bow tie and Sam just strips (allowing a brief moment for everyone to appreciate those abs), it was clear that they had the election in the bag.
2. Kurt’s going Vogue — After being out of Ohio for what seems like two minutes, Kurt lands an internship at Vogue.com under editor Isabelle Klempt, played by Ms. New Yorker herself, Sarah Jessica Parker. SJP and NYC go hand in hand, so who better to take Kurt under her wing and show him the ropes? I think this job is perfect for Kurt. Anyone who can rock a hippo brooch belongs at Vogue.
3. Mr. Schuester has a new dream — With a national championship under his belt, Mr. Schuester decides he would make a great addition to the Blue Ribbon Government Panel to put arts back into schools. It would be amazing to give other schools a shot at belting out Journey or Florence, but this job requires him to leave McKinley and I do NOT approve. Glee without Schuester is like Rachel without her voice — it’s just not right.
4. Blaine and Kurt are drifting — Read more…
While McKinley’s glee club holds auditions to replace all the graduated singers, Rachel deals with a bitchy instructor at NYC, played by the ever-fabulous Kate Hudson.
Here’s what you need to know from last night’s episode, “The New Rachel.”
1. Glee Club is now cool: Since New Directions won the championship last year, all the students that previously mocked them and cruelly threw red slushies in in their faces basically want to be buddy buddy because hey, glee club is now for winners. Unfortunately, now that the ND’s members are hip enough to hang with the Cheerios, they’re also developing major attitude issues. Luckily the Cheerios realize the glee club is too
losery cool for them and social order is restored.
2. Everyone wants to be the new Rachel: Now that Rachel’s left to get her ass kicked in NYC, everyone wants to take her place as the lead singer. The previously shy Tina is now a major diva and wants to be lead vocalist in glee. Unfortunately she’s got some competition in cross dresser Wade and I’m predicting a fierce diva battle. There are too many egos in this group.
3. We have two new stars: Puck’s younger half-brother is our new badboy, immediately causing trouble by lashing out at his audition. He’s going to be our new eye candy while Marley is our new sweetheart. She’s our relatable everyday girl who doesn’t have a lot of money but has a killer voice. Her mom secretly works in the cafeteria and all the students make fun of her. Marley grapples with familial insecurities, which we can all relate too.
4. Rachel’s no longer the lead cookie: Read more…
