A 'Glee' sneak peek: Will 'Hey Soul Sister' be Darren Criss' next hit?

November 24, 2010 | 12:42 pm

On last night's “Glee,” Kurt (Chris Colfer) finally made the move to Dalton Academy, where his crush/mentor Blaine (Darren Criss) sings with the school's all-boys glee club, the Warblers. They'll be headed to sectionals in next week's episode, “Special Education,” and below is a sneak peek preview from that show. In it, Kurt has joined the Warblers, where he'll be competing against his old friends in New Directions, but they don't seem too upset about that as they sit in the audience. Well, maybe except for Mr. Schuester (Matthew Morrison), who looks oddly vacant. Rachel (Lea Michele) even reminds Kurt to smile as she watches the performance.

Blaine once again takes lead on the cover of Train's “Hey Soul Sister,” which makes us wonder if he's the only Warbler allowed solos. Kurt seems to be even more in the background now than when he was competing with Rachel for solos. Putting that aside, “Hey Soul Sister” is pleasant enough but doesn't pack quite the same punch as the love-at-first-song quality of the “Teenage Dream” performance. (But Criss' cover of “Part of Your World” from “The Little Mermaid” at the Grove in Los Angeles? A+)

Readers, what do you think of “Hey Soul Sister”? Wish Kurt was given more to do?
