    Matthew Morrison was in the original cast of “Hairspray”, so Will having the kids do that song is fun.

    • Jude

      Matthew is the original Link Larkin baby! I’m sure he is loving this cover. It is awesome.

      • Trey

        No and No.

  • RK

    The new fall season means gleew.com is back.

  • James

    It’s about time. Only complaint is that Matthew Morrison should be singing the Link Larkin part.

    • what

      go download the obc album.

      • James

        I’ve got it, that’s why I think he should be singing it.

    • Amy

      I agree with you, James. Nothing tops Matt’s Link.

  • Mary

    One of my fav musicals together with one of my fav tv shows = fabulous! I’m excited. Why Kurt would call the NAACP is a little bit of a mystery to me though!

    • Jozsef

  • kt

    Two of my favorite things: Glee + Hairspray! My inner musical geek is loving this!

    EW, how much are the producers of “Glee” paying you to promote the show every hour on the hour and kiss their asses?

    • SC

      Glee news gets hits; hence, why they do it. Including, ironically, hits from people who come in to complain about Glee articles.

  • Kim H

    I am so psyched for the new season….If they had sung this at Nationals….who knows…8th or 9th place…LOL

  • MM

    it’s weird that Kurt is calling the NAACP like couldn’t he call some kind of LGBT group?

    • Kim H

      I don’t think that they changed the lyrics….everyone knows that they are covering other songs…to change it to me would be weird actually…now if this was an original song…then it would be weird.

  • Slizzard

    Not enough energy, and it’s been shortened. I’ve been waiting all summer for new Glee music, just to find that I don’t want any of these songs. Glad them stepping away from top 40 though.

    • Zane

      Agreed. Their selection is better but the covers are boring, this song completely lost it’s power.

  • kate

    Lea Michele’s voice singing new songs! It has to be what heaven sounds like.

    • Psac

      I think the Anything Goes song is Lindsay from the Glee Project. It sounds like her.

      • elena

        Spoilers, darling.

  • jpratm

    I don’t like it. Brace yourself its waaay to showtuney

    • kila

      …It’s a showtune.

    • Corina

      Last time I checked Hairspray was a musical, this one and Ding Dong the Witch are my favorites so far oh and Blaine’s It’s not Unusual.

  • seriously

    They should rename this site GleEW…….between Glee and Twilight I am suprised EW has anything else to report on

    • Tarc

      Thanks with adding to the number of hits and the number of replies that help determine what to write articles about. Glee’s excellent hit ratio and high replies helps ensure lots of Glee posts. :D

      • jp

        I wish that the “Hits” in question were actual punches.

  • ems

    They should keep Lindsey Pearce around longer, she’s got a great belt, I hope they extend her part and I can’t wait to see the tap dancing scene.

    • toby


      • Andre

        She’s one of the contestants from “The Glee Project” and I must admit the voice singing “Anything Goes/Anything You Can Do” from S03E01 on the Facebook Glee Music page sounds like Lindsey to me. She is going to have a two-episode arc, so maybe this is one of those two episodes.

  • renne

    i loved, lea and amber are killing it.

  • erin

    lea michele is amazing
