I’ve always thought that number was skeevy and gross when it wasn’t busy being pointless and dull, I have little to say about Glee’s careful recreation of it here aside from this: Blake Jenner looks waaaaaay better with his vile Bieber-wannabe emo ‘do all poofed up in a ’50s pompadour. Like, hot, even, especially when he strips down to that tight black t-shirt of his. Woof.
And then I remember that Blake Jenner just turned twenty three months ago, and I feel completely disgusting about myself and proceed to shut up, which means I actually have absolutely nothing to say about this number at all.

Blake won the show because Finn is off to join the army (you know, because his dad was in the Marines and then died of a drug overdose after he was dishonorably discharged, and Finn wants to… avenge him?), which means Murphy is down one straight, boring hunk for fangirls and fanboys to drool over. Blake’s character likely won’t start a dialogue about religious intolerance in a post-9/11 America, nor will he inspire handicapable teens by showing that he actually could overcome adversity, but screw it, he’s a likable guy, and will no doubt out another unsuspecting New Directions member. Tina, maybe?
