For our video look at Tuesday night’s “Prom-A-Saurus” episode of “Glee,” we are focusing almost entirely on one performance that already has everyone talking — the random boy band assembled among the cast to perform the One Direction hit “What Makes You Beautiful.”
First things first, let’d look at the performance itself — which features Samuel Larsen, Damian McGinty, Kevin McHale, Chord Overstreet, and Harry Shum Jr. each taking on roles in the group made famous on “The X Factor” in Great Britain. There are some fun moments here, and the ladies in the prom crowd all at one point spontaneously act as though they actually are members of One Direction. (We find it a bit funny that Will and Emma are just dancing quietly to themselves in the middle of this performance.)
In addition to that, we also have a preview clip from the Fox show that features all five of the actors coming up with hilarious ways to describe themselves in the context of themselves. (Overstreet, for example, is “the damaged one whose daddy didn’t love him.”) They also spontaneously try to harmonize to varying degrees of success.
Even if these guys are not One Direction, do you think that they do an admirable job at capturing the spirit of the group?
