Wake Me Up Before You Go Go (Original by Wham!): A musical number lead by Blaine that involved leg warmers, old-school dance moves and perms? You could never go wrong with that combination. B+

Copacabana (Original by Barry Manilow): Sam gave it his best effort with a little costume, but where were my back-up dancers moving their hips and shimmying like it's nobody's business? C

Against All Odds (Original by Phil Colliins): Whenever Blaine sits behind a piano, I'm hooked. Add tear-filled eyes and what sounded like live vocals, and this performance was close to perfection. A-

Wannabe (Original by Spice Girls): The vocals were good, the vibe was fun, but I wasn't too impressed with the costumes, probably because I've done better. Yes, I won a costume contest as one-fifth of the Spice Girls in college. So what? B+

My Prerogative (Original by Bobby Brown): Jake's dance moves didn't even need a vocal to partner with, but that didn't stop him from singing his way into my heart. Did I mention the dance moves? B+

Creep (Original by Radiohead): I'm not going to lie. Brody and Rachel duets are some of my faves. And I loved the fact that they took on Radiohead and paired it with their out-of-this-world vocals. Was it "Give Your Heart A Break?" No. But it was great. A-

Mamma Mia (Original by ABBA): Sure, there were platform shoes and lots of rhinestones, but I wasn't exactly obsessed with this performance. It was fun, but I think Glee can do better. B
