CHRIS SAYS : 'Glee' Does 'The Rocky Horror Picture Show' & Everyone Sings — But I Wanted More Chris Colfer & Dianna Agron!

Posted Tue, October 26, 2010 9:33pm EDT

The ‘Glee’ Halloween special does not disappoint, but I wished we could have gotten two hours of that amazing singing and choreography as opposed to one!

Where to start with what was perhaps one of the best episodes of Glee yet? Forget their tributes to Madonna, Gaga, and Britney, the show’s tribute to The Rocky Horror Picture Show blew them all out of the water. Every cast member sounded better than ever, and that includes the seldom musical Emma (Jayma Mays) and Dr. Carl (John Stamos). But the two standouts were definitely Kurt (Chris Colfer) and Quinn (Dianna Agron).

The set-up for the glee club’s big Halloween production was perfect and, while they both sounded wonderful, it was no surprise that Finn (Cory Monteith) and Rachel (Lea Michele) were cast as the movie’s straight-laced leads Brad and Janet. So let’s talk about the three big stars, Kurt, Quinn, and Mercedes (Amber Riley).

Having Mercedes reinterpret the normally male Dr. Frank-N-Furter as a female was ideal as she has the best voice in the cast and brought a totally new sound to the iconic role. It was so upsetting though that she only got one chance to shine and was then background for the rest of the episode.

Kurt and Quinn however were AMAZING. From their tiny part in “Damn It Janet,” it became clear they would steal this episode. Sadly, we didn’t get a chance to see that until they performed “Time Warp” together  – and they were unbelievable.

Kurt has proved himself to be a great singer over the past two seasons, but Quinn seldom gets a chance. Her vampy and pitch perfect portrayal of Magenta was my favorite part of the episode. Something tells me Dianna is way too talented an actress to be sticking around for long. She is without a doubt the breakout star of this show.

As for the evening’s big surprise, Emma singing “Touch-a, Touch-a, Touch-a, Touch Me” was also pitch perfect. It also must be noted that so was Mr. Schuester’s (Mathhew Morrison) torso during that scene. Who knew our timid little guidance counselor had that voice?

Oh, and major props to the cameos by orginal Rocky cast mates Meat Loaf and Barry Bostwick — the original Brad!

So Glee delivered big on Halloween — I just wished I could have gotten another hour!

Are you on Dianna Agron’s payroll or something? The girl has subpar talent, an hopefully will get off this show and fizzle out trying to do movies.

Chris maybe, but Dianna, Santana would have been better to do Magenta the whole time.

Chris and Lea are the true breakouts. Second tier I’ll put Dianna but that is more for looks even thoughs is an ok decent actress but certainly not for singing. Your Dianna bias is clearly showing again if you think she is the true break out of the only break out.

Lea overall is still the best singer. If you want some old school
R&B yeah Amber is your girl but overall it is still Lea.

Amber was better than I expected but that is only becasue her Frank was just one song. If she actually had to act as Frank it would have been bad. Amber is getting better but her acting is far behind most the cast.

I agree with a lot of what you said about the show except that Amber has the best voice on the show. She’s the best belter but not the best singer. When she sings songs that need to be sung, not belted, her voice is actually quite thin and it causes her phrasing to be way off.

I REALLY like Amber and I think she has a great voice but not a lot of versatility. She can sing the hell out of the anthem but her version of “Beautiful” was weak (vocally but it was a lovely moment on the show, which distracted from the fact that she didn’t sing it all that well).

Also, I don’t think there is just one “breakout star” of this show. There’s Dianna, Chris, Lea (she was already big on broadway but I referring to HW in this context), and even Harry Shum.

I think Chris Colfer is the breakout star of Glee.

Other than that, I agree completely. This episode needed a little less Finn, a lot less Will, and a whole lot more of Kurt and Quinn. My favourite part of the episode was the Time Warp.

I didn´t watch the episode last night, but everytime it happens, I go rightaway and check iTunes Top 100 chart. After 7 hours after it was aired, there is none GLEE cast rendition on the Top 40. Now I´m wondering if they did any new renditions of any songs in this Horror episodes.

I think they released it as an album. Check the albums section, not the single songs.

Dianna Agron isn’t just sexy as Hell–she’s also a talented singer, with a unique voice. Unfortunately, she isn’t getting enough time on this show.

I so agree! Chris and Dianna were amazing! I usually don’t care for Dianna’s voice, but she was so fabulous tonight that I had to google for another listen and then came across this post.
