Gratuitous Matthew Morrison plugThis was a fantastic performance. I love Kurt and Rachel as frenemies, but I love them even more when they acknowledge that they have the same dream.
I found this whole performance really jarring. Number one, the girls are dressed in white Grecian dresses and gold gladiator sandals, so I expected something ethereal and floaty to be sung. Number two, the choreography made them look really, really awkward and weirdly over-enthusiastic. Like, instead of rocking an Usher song, they just looked like white girl teenyboppers (who were surprisingly tall) that had practiced in someone's living room. It was just really strange. The girl at the front was really, really bad.
Finale songs / The Kiss
What did we all think of the original songs? I kind of wasn't feeling it (although I was totally feeling the cute, kicky black dresses the girls were wearing). I don't know. It just felt really predictable. I think New Directions needed to shake things up a bit more. Now they've won with a Finn and Rachel duet and lost with a Finn and Rachel duet. So now can we please have some of the other awesome singers be showcased at the big competitions (*coughmercedescough*)?
I also found it super unrealistic the way the audience just STOPPED RESPONDING OUT OF SHOCK because two performers kissed on stage. I mean, if I were watching from the audience I would have just assumed it was scripted. I feel like the audience's reaction was just a vehicle for the writers to make it REALLY OBVIOUS that OMG IT WAS UNSCRIPTED. And also to show off Jesse's thin man scarf again. LET GO OF THE SCARF, PLEASE. It's really ugly.
I'm also not surprised they didn't win, or even place. Obviously they need a storyline for season 3, so they can't have New Directions winning already. Plus the original songs just weren't that great. Thoughts?
MERCEDES AND SAM! I think I love this already.
So. Rachel and Finn. Sweet last scene, but if Finn suddenly decides he doesn't love Rachel, or he can't get over her kissing Puck or he decides that Quinn is his one true love AT ANT POINT NEXT SEASON I THINK THE INTERNET WILL BREAK. Pin It
