I can’t focus on a damn thing since news of Prince William and Kate Middleton‘s engagement broke yesterday. It’s with a half-ass American attempt that I bring you Glee: The Recap.
Also, I’d like to apologize to Gwyneth Paltrow, whose stupendous turn on last night’s episode was overshadowed by an event that will consume my every thought until well after the wedding takes place. I have an addiction, and I don’t care to fix it.
Sue Sylvester, for all her smalltown bullying and Schuester sabotaging (which is bordering on homophobia, if you ask me), has yet to fall from grace with me. Blame it on the variety of track suits, the journal entries, or her “Kitty Cat” speech, but I get Sue Sylvester. She’s got a school to run, now that’s she’s pushed Principal Figgins into exile with a mere sneeze (and a slew of support from the parents for pushing tater tots into, you guessed it, exile). Hark! Did you see that? Coach Beiste spun Sue a riddle she was unable to solve. If the football team is to be disbanded by 4pm that day, who will the Cheerios cheer for? Who? We’ll get back to you on that.
Enter Gwyneth Paltrow AKA Holly Holiday AKA Rachel Berry in 15 years when she’s broken from being Rachel Berry. She’s the substitute who wants to gab about what’s hip in Spanish class, and seduces the boys in Glee Club with a little Cee-Lo Green. For a moment there, I feared Holiday was gonna go all Mary Kay Letourneau on Finn. Cancel that. It was only part of the song.
Gwyneth unveiled her vocals to us in Duets alongside Huey Lewis. The pipes took a break so Paltrow could win an Oscar, but they’re back! First at the CMAs where Paltrow performed the single for her upcoming film, Country Strong, and now here! On Glee! She’s good, right? Not Rachel-Berry-Make-A-Contorted-Face-Belt-It-Out good, but good!
I would have been okay with Schuester sick in bed and not dreaming of scenes from Singin’ In The Rain. I’m good with him just healing while Holly runs shop.
What was your favorite song from last night?
