'Glee'-cap: Duets

The high school musical hits a high notePosted by MSN TV Wednesday, October 13, 2010 7:54:24 AM

This week on "Glee," the vocal enthusiasts at McKinley High tackled duets in good-natured competition where the stakes were high: Not only would the winners get bragging rights, they'd also get a free dinner at Breadsticks, where waiters serve carbs by the wheelbarrow-full. Mr. Schuester's (Matthew Morrison) challenge saw the return of New Directions' best-dressed man, Kurt (Chris Colfer), as he upped his game to team up with the newest member of the glee club, Sam (Chord Overstreet), who was filling in for a juvie-bound Puck (Mark Salling). Just one problem: though he might be a lemon-juice blonde, Sam wasn't on Kurt's team -- he was crushing on Quinn (Dianna Agron).  

Meanwhile, a typically confident Rachel (Lea Michele) realized that she and boyfriend Finn (Cory Monteith) were a shoo-in to win Mr. Schuester's challenge, and that wasn't best for the team: she needed Sam to win so he'd stay with New Directions, giving the club a better shot at Regionals. As such, she and Finn dropped a perfectly fine rendition of "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" in favor of much cheesier fare. 

Little did Rachel know that Santana (Naya Rivera) and Mercedes (Amber Riley) would deliver one of the week's best duets, "River Deep, Mountain High." The Cheerio's choice to sing along with Mercedes left fan favorite Britney (Heather Morris) in the cold, but she found comfort, albeit briefly, in the arms of Artie (Kevin McHale).

Having decided Sam was better off singing with a girl, Kurt came up with a fresh idea: he'd win the duets challenge on his own. He assumed both roles in "Le Jazz Hot," borrowed from the musical "Victor/Victoria."

 Though the club's newest couple, Mike (Harry Shum Jr.) and Tina (Jenna Ushkowitz), were experiencing some growing pains. She eventually convinced Mike that he can sing, too. The result: "Sing" from "A Chorus Line." 

 It's been a while since "Glee" treated us to a Rachel/Kurt matchup, but they delivered this week with a mashup of "Get Happy/Happy Days are Here Again." After throwing the competition to help Sam and Quinn win, Rachel was ready to step back in the spotlight -- and after trying to go at it alone, Kurt was ready for a partner again. Happy days are here again, indeed.
