'Glee' Recap — Bieber Fever Takes Over Glee Club, Brittany Is The Most Popular Girl In School & Still No Charice!

Justin proves that his music really can melt hearts when the boys learn crooning his tunes can win the hearts of their lady loves!

The Justin Bieber episode of Glee finally arrived and we were all lucky enough to get two tunes from the boy wonder’s catalogue, “Baby” and “Somebody to Love!” Both were performed for the ladies of the glee club by the boys and both proved to be huge hits. It looks like everyone at McKinley High has the Bieber Fever.

It also appears that everyone at McKinley High looks to Brittany (Heather Morris) as a fashion trendsetter. The always hysterical Britanny, who we sadly learn cannot read a calendar, is paid by Rachel (Lea Michele) to dress just like her and make her look popular. This all backfires when Rachel’s style takes over the school, but everyone credits Brittany for the look. Perhaps the funniest part of the evening came when Rachel demanded her money back and Brittany was forced to tell her she spent it on a publicist — and was off to Teen Vogue for an interview.

Also great was Lauren’s (Ashley Fink) envisioning of all the members of glee club naked to battle her stage fright. We got Sue (Jane Lynch) in bondage gear, Mr. Schuester (Matthew Morrison) in boxers and a vest and Finn (Cory Monteith) in Mighty Morphin’ Power Ranger gear. Nice.

Now for a few complaints. The Sue plots REALLY need to be toned down. Everything is always so dramatic and over the top with her. The Sue-icide note? Learning she was in the CIA? A former tambourine player? These are all funny but it is slowly getting to be way too much. The show would be just as funny, if not funnier, if she just behaved like a normal hateful and spiteful person, not a borderline sociopath.

And hey, Emma (Jayma Mays) is back. We missed you!

Finally, Santana (Naya Rivera) was once again awesome in her instigating between Quinn (Dianna Agron) and Sam (Chord Overstreet). She is kind of like Sue in her manipulating only she is believable and far more funny. Don’t you agree?

What did you think of the episode HollywoodLifers?
