Image Credit: Adam Rose/Fox

After an entire season of invading your televisions, the kids from Glee are getting read to take over your theaters for the summer with their 3D concert movie.

But if the anticipation is killing you and Aug. 12 just seems too far away, EW is happy to present your exclusive first listen to Darren Criss and the Warblers performing “Teenage Dream.”

The track, which can also be heard on the soundtrack (out Aug. 9), features Criss’ silky pipes, solid backing vocals from his blazered brothers, and just enough screaming girls to get the live experience (minus the temporary deafness that usually results from being surrounded by shrieks for extended periods of time).

Listen below and enjoy this EXCLUSIVE premiere, Mixers!

Pre-order the soundtrack here.

    I’m so ova Darren.

    • Sam

      If you’re over Darren then why are you even commenting? Just wondering. PS you could have just spelled over.

      • lefty

        You’re right, I could have spelled over…but I didn’t. So…yeah.

      • Vighorois

        Maybe he’s really, REALLY into women’s tennis? Ova, ova, icki, oli, enka, ova, ova. (Check out Wimbledon.)

    • O’Brien

      Good. Makes the odds better for the rest of us.

    • LLL

      I could only take 15 seconds of his extreme gayness

      • Sparkle Girl

        You do know that he’s not really gay don’t you? It’s just his character on Glee…

      • jared4ever

        Your idea of “extreme gayness” is twisted.

      • to sparkle girl

        yes he is

      • Emily

        Actually Kevin, he isn’t gay, yeah he’s said multiple times that he is actually straight

    • Kevin

      Wait, you’re like latin eggs or oocytes?

    This is great. Still love their version of the song better than Katy Perry’s original.

    • Brendda

      I must say, as considerably as I enojeyd reading what you had to say, I couldnt help but lose interest after a while. Its as if you had a good grasp to the topic matter, but you forgot to include your readers. Perhaps you should think about this from more than 1 angle. Or maybe you shouldnt generalise so much. Its better if you think about what others may have to say instead of just going for a gut reaction to the topic. Think about adjusting your very own thought process and giving others who may read this the benefit of the doubt.

  • S

    I loved it!

    • Tristan

      Darren is live, but the back-up track is the Tufts Bubs, thank god. I was worried the actors who play the Warblers were going to try to actually sing. The lovely Bubs did a great job making TD all silky and smooooth, wouldn’t be the same without ‘em.

      • Shawnuel

        Are these the same “Bubs” that were on the first season of The Sing-Off?

      • Mark

        Having spent a LOT of time with all the Warblers, I can tell you that they have more individual musical talent than a bus load of the Tufts dudes.

      • PN

        Couldn’t they have gotten a live band behind them to perform all those songs at that concert? I don’t like the backing tracks of these kinds of concerts; it doesn’t make the concert feel real.They need to sing and feel themselves over live instruments instead of singing over the record!

  • Maia

    Love the sound. One of my favorite covers from the show.

  • Sarah

    As a Darren/Blaine fan, it pains me to say this, but for crying out loud. We already got Blaine/Warbler sneak peeks via “On the Road With Blaine Anderson,” would it be too much to ask to get some previews featuring people that aren’t Blaine/Darren?

    • Jessica

      We got a Lea/Rachel sneak peek. Did you miss it?

    • Veronica

      Yeah, and the other sneak peek? Rachel sneak peek maybe? or Loser Like me? and Valerie? -.-
      Please, don’t talk for nothing.

      • Britt

        Wow. Maybe take your own advice and don’t talk.

    • Maddi

      There is one with HeMo as Brittany as well. It’s just that Darren is their breakout character, so they use him all they can :D

      • Adolf

        Your formidable pmotore, I given this upon your friend who has been carrying out a little examination with this. And the man actually , acquired everyone lunch due to I stumbled upon them regarding the pup.. smile. And so ok, i’ll reword which: Thnx for the cope with! Having said that yep Thnkx for investing enough time go over the following, I really sense clearly concerning this and love researching more for this theme. If prospective, as you grow expertise, might you thoughts replacing your blog site with additional information? Ite28099s particularly used by us. Significant thumbs upwards in this weblog distribute!

  • Jesse

    So the live concert versions are even SHORTER than the versions on the show? Come on!!

    • Sarah

      Just the Warblers. All the ND songs are the full versions.

      • Jessica

        Lies. All the versions on the tour are the short versions used on the show, not the full versions sold on iTunes. That’s true for the Warblers and ND.

      • Jesse

        That’s ridiculous. Why wouldn’t they do the full versions on the tour? Why would anyone pay for a full show of songs that are a minute and a half long?

      • Captain

        I’ve seen the show and plenty of the songs are full-versions.

      • PN

        I like it if they sing on full length versions of ALL the songs! Hear themselved on an ENTIRE song and arrangement and not what they sing on TV. This minute and a half long mess will make concertgoers feel that they’re on a live taping of American Idol or something.

  • Diana

    He sounds amazing.

  • Amanda

    Has anyone checked out the mini Warbler on youtube who Darren Criss found?? He is TOO adorable and will be in the 3D movie also!

  • Eloisa

    Blaine e i Fringuelli spaccano di brutto!
    Darren Live รจ una forza della natura!Mi sono messa a saltare sulla sedia

  • Olivia

    He sounds fantastic live, he did in concert and he does here. I am so happy for him, can’t wait for the rest plus the Klaine skit!

    • Marcus

      Yeah, the Klaine skit where Darren flirts with Heather. How exciting.

      • Olivia

        Oh look, someone is ticked off Klaine exists … wonder which of the ridiculous three are you, the Kummer, the Kurtofsky or the disgruntled fanatical Kurtsie? Hmm. Klaine is canon and that isn’t changing. Deal with it.

  • holster

    hell to yeah Darren criss is like AMAZING live unlike katy perry singing this song cant wait to go c it at cinemas gutted i could actually c it live on tour D:

  • Veronica

    amazing, seriously.

  • Amy

    On the show, the Tufts Beelzebubs provide the voices of the Warblers. Is it the same way on tour? Just curious.

    • Veronica

      Yes, I think

    • Andre

      I’ve wondered as well. I’ve spoken with people who attended the tour who were convinced the “Warblers” were actually singing. I’ve wondered if they’ve transitioned from the Bubs backing tracks to the actors singing.

    • Marcus

      Yes, it’s the same. Darren sings (except during parts of Raise Your Glass), the Warbler actors don’t.
