‘Glee’: the music of ‘Hold on to Sixteen’

What stood out?

Tuesday night’s Sectionals-themed episode of “Glee” had a song lyric in its title, and there were of course plenty of memorable performances to go along with it.

Then again, there were also some that bordered on ridiculous.

“Red Solo Cup” – This number by Chord Overstreet certainly was funny, but it was incredibly wrong in just about every way. This song was more than a little bit inappropriate to say the least, and it was really just weird to hear everyone talk about boozin’ it up. Grade. C+

“Buneos Aires” – This was certainly a bizarre performance for Lindsay Pearce to perform, but it was at least entertaining to watch. The most important thing about this number was that it enabled Pearce to get one final dose of the spotlight after being on “The Glee Project.” Grade: B-

“I Will Survive / Survivor” – What a strong way to end the Trouble Tones’ reign on TV! As we learned by the end of this episode, the show choir disbanded Grade: A

“The Jackson Medley” – Since the show aired three New Directions numbers in a row, they were really just one standalone performance in that sense. While “ABC” was fun (thanks largely to Mike and Tina getting a chance to shine), “Control” was a bit of a bomb and “Man in the Mirror” was a tad predictable. If we were a judge, we may have voted for the Trouble Tones. Grade: B

“We Are Young” – In closing the show, we had a surprisingly strong number featuring everyone. the two clubs are now together again, though ironically this song was largely dominated by Finn and Rachel. Grade: A
