Glee is an inspiring musical series with its iconic covers that everyone loves. If there is a better thing than Glee covers, that is Glee mash-ups. Let’s check the 10 best mash-ups of everyone’s favourite TV show Glee!
- Careful, there are spoilers ahead!
First of Glee mash-ups is inspired by the infamous feud between Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj. Blaine (Darren Criss) and Sue (Jane Lynch) sings Nicki Minaj’s Super Bass and Mariah Carey’s I Still Believe cover in a sing-off.
This mash-up is performed by the New Directions and the Troubletones, with Finn (Cory Monteith) and Santana (Naya Rivera) leading. It was sung in the episode “Mash Off” and during a dodgeball game.
Sung by the New Directions Girls, this mash-up of The Rolling Stones and Bon Jovi songs is one of the best rock moments in Glee.
Troubletones mashups these two legendary songs by Destiny’s Child and Gloria Gaynor. This performance is the last one performed by the Troubletones. It is also features the first and only solo that Sugar has ever had during the show, singing only “what”.
Another mash-up sung by the Troubletones, this mash-up of Adele’s two songs is the 300th performance recorded in Glee. It also is one of the most successful performances of Glee. Even Adele herself tweeted about it.
Cassandra July (Kate Hudson) mashups these two songs of Lady Gaga and Jennifer Lopez, and makes us think as if it’s one bilingual song, sung in Spanish and English. She also presents us a well-choreographed scene.
Sung in one of the most emotional episodes of Glee, this mash-up of Nicki Minaj-Rihanna and R. Kelly definitely deserves to be on this list. Rachel’s soft “fly”s and smooth transition between the songs brings the first place for the New Directions in the Regionals, as they “came to win”.
Jean (Skylar Astin) and his glee club Throat Explosion mashups these two completely different songs of Styx and OneRepublic. Throat Explosion gives us a legendary nationals performance performed in the episode City of Angels.
With its perfect prop-use and smooth transitions between the songs, one cannot help but love this particular mash-up of Glee. Also, the sympathetic substitute teacher Holly Holiday, personated by one and only Gwyneth Paltrow, presents us an almost-perfect performance.
This mash-up of Michael Jackson’s Thriller and indie rock band Yeah Yeah Yeah’s Heads Will Roll is sung in one of the best moments in Glee. After Sue Sylvester doesn’t let her Cheerios perform in the half-time show, the Glee club comes to rescue. In the scene, we can see a united Glee Club and football players, ending their rivalry for a short time. This episode of Glee achieved to be the most watched Glee episode ever and became the most-expensive post-Super Bowl episode ever produced, costing $3-5 million.
