Get ready for one of the most mind-bending performances you’ve seen on Glee for a while! During tonight's Season 5, Episode 4: “A Katy or a Gaga,” the New Directions will perform Lady Gaga’s “Applause.” And it’s going to be trippy.
Thanks to spoiler photos, we’ve already gotten a first look at the performance...and we love it. The costumes. Oh, the costumes. Artie looks positively terrifying. Sam is shirtless and wearing angel wings. Becky looks adorable. But weird. But adorable. And Blaine is cross-dressing.
Yeah, we told you it was weird. Sam (Chord Overstreet), Marley (Melissa Benoist), Artie (Kevin McHale), Ryder (Blake Jenner), and Blaine (Darren Criss) all share the vocals on this unique Season 5, Episode 4 performance, which perfectly captures all of the mind-bending awesomeness of the original Gaga number.
This isn’t the only Lady Gaga song of the episode though. Over in New York City, celebrity guest star Adam Lambert will make his debut as Elliott “Starchild” Gilbert. He auditions for Kurt’s band by singing Gaga’s “Marry the Night.” And spoiler alert: It sounds fantastic.
Take a listen to Glee’s take on “Applause” below, then head down to the comments and let us know what you think.
