‘Glee’ Previews Songs For Upcoming Season

With only a few weeks until the season premiere of Glee’s fourth season, the show is letting fans in on what songs will appear on the first two episodes.

In a first listen event on Facebook, the show revealed that this season would feature songs from Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Justin Bieber and Britney Spears.

In the season premiere, airing September 13, new cast member Kate Hudson, who plays Rachel’s dance teacher, performs a mash-up of Gaga’s “Americano” and J. Lo’s “Dance Again.”

“It works really well, it’s fun,” Hudson said in a statement. “It’s got fun and levity and you see a different side of her. … This character actually has some depth.”

The gang at McKinley High will also do their own version of Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” as well as highlight another summer hit by Imagine Dragons.

Darren Criss who plays Blaine on the show, will sing “It’s Time” by the Las Vegas band. Though, this name might not sound familiar, most likely the song will since it’s been blaring out of speakers all summer long.

The second episode is another tribute to Ms. Spears, appropriately titled “Britney 2.0” with a cover of Brit’s 2007 song, “Gimme More” by Glee’s own Brittany.

Criss will also duet with Kevin McHale, who plays Artie, for a mash-up of Bieber’s “Boyfriend” and Britney’s “Boys” from her 2002 self-titled album.

Will Britney appear on this episode like she did back in season two? We’ll have to wait and see.

Watch a preview of the season premiere airing on its new day and time, Thursday, September 13 at 9 pm.
