GLEE's Teenage Dream Is Expected To Top The Charts!

| Filed under: Music MinuteKaty PerryGlee

WOW! This is HUGE!

According to the Billboard Charts, Darren Criss' AMAZING cover of Katy Perry's Teenage Dream on Glee this week is expected to sell from 150,000 to 175,000 downloads on iTunes, which would make it the single-best sales week for a single from the series - even better than the current number one - Don't Stop Believin' by Journey!

Holy shiz!

Amazing!

If Criss weren't secured a regular spot already, he'll DEFINITELY be getting one now!

Congratulations, bb!

And if you haven't already watched it a hundred times already - like us - then check out the performance (above)!

Thoughts??

    After watching 10 seconds of that clip… I must admit that it was one of the most gay/stupidest things I've ever seen. If people actually watch this shit… then this country is in trouble.

    Yuck. All Glee covers sound terrible. Nothing ever beats the original version.



  3. 3

    It's actually the Tufts University Beelzebubs singing teenage dream.

    OMG awesome!!!

    I've never actually commented on Perez before, but I just had to say that this was an amazing episode. Not only did they look and sound great, but how wonderful was it to see homosexuality portrayed on mainstream television with the same joy and excitement as heterosexuality has been for so long?! The look on Kurt's face throughout the song is pure elation! Especially with the tragedy of recent months, this was a step in the right direction that, I can only hope, will pave the way for more of a normalization of homosexuality in the media.

    Thought it was the best Glee musical moment ever. And Darren Criss HAS to become a regular!

    YAY for Darren Criss!!! This is such a good cover, and such a good episode, and Darren just has to stay now.

    I have been asking myself why this video is so addictive. After all, the elements by themselves are good but not spectacular. Darren is nice-looking but not a knockout and very short (a "hobbit" in his own words), he sings well but doesn't have a spectacular voice… No, it's something else, shown by the ensemble of little things in his way of moving and interacting. At the start of the number he sort of awkwardly points in his toes (No one else does) momentarity, his head clicks and bobs are crisp and perfectly timed (No one else does them as well), towards the end, he makes a crossing movement with open palm then ends it by a downward flap at the wrists (No one else does). It all adds up to something unique, something personal and warm. When his looks fade with age, he will still have this perfect sense of movement and timing i.e. charisma and charm.

    I don't even watch the show, but that was wonderful and a breath of fresh air.

    dayum he has charisma!



  14. 14

    I don't see the big deal.. Don't Stop Believing sounded much better!



  15. 15

    I just can't understand the haters of this Glee cover. It was amazing, from the lead to the harmonies to the sweet emotional connection that Kurt finally feels to someone. It was sung really well, and if you knew anything about music, you would at least know that.



  16. 16

    I actually HATE this song… but b/c the boy's choir did it.. I'll be listenign to it over and over damn it. They are just that damn good!



  17. 17

    BTW.. no way in hell can the glee club beat these guys sadly… So much for sectionals this year. These guys are waaaay too good



  18. 18

    I was not really a fan of the Katy Perry version of this song, but I love this one.



  19. 19

    WoW Perez I actually agree with you for a change!! Amazing stuff!! Loved it!



  20. 20

    This shit is popular? Someone kill me, I no longer want to live on this fetid stinking shit hole of a planet.



  21. 21

    I loved it and it made me love the song :D



  22. 22

    If you are going to keep posting about this, PLEASEEE include that it was actually done by the Tufts University Beelzebubs (2nd place in The Sing Off last december) doing the singing here and give those boys the praise they deserve!!!



  23. 23

    I think this song and Darren definitely deserve to top the charts! I can not stop listening to this song and I think Darren Criss's voice is incredible! I know from Darren's youtube channel and videos of his concert that he truly has an amazing voice which makes this cover a lot better to me because no offense but Katy Perry isn't that good live. Like you said he needs to be a series regular he is so talented and him and Kurt need to date! The way Kurt looks at him when he sings is so cute!



  24. 24

    So i never leave comments, but after all the Darren publicity you have been doing lately, I just had to. This is an amazing cover and I'm sooo sooo happy for Darren Criss. It just makes me = )



  25. 25

    Darren Criss is super dreamy!



  26. 26

    I have seen this clip i think about 100 times. They bring him as a regular. He is mesmerizing. :)



  27. 27

    maravillosooooo!



  28. 28

    I saw the video and the production, and dance looked great together! The song was put together well, the dancing was cute and the boys sung great! I see why everyone would get this added to their list. But it reminds me of something X-factor would do with Joe Mcelderry as their lead!



  29. 29

    Maybe I am hearing it wrong, but all I hear is autotune…



  30. 30

    This clip just makes me feel happy!



  31. 31

    love love love LOVE it!



  32. 32

    GLEE is for people who nothing about music, starring people who can't sing working for people with no originality. KATY PERRY CAN'T SING!
    GOOGLE Katy Perry stuffs her bra! Victoria secrets edition!



  33. 33

    Oh, Darren Criss



  34. 34

    absolutely fabulous



  35. 35

    Gay or not I



  36. 36

    Gay or not I don't give a shit! That was just a great performance!



  37. 37

    Both Katy Perry and Steve Perry of Journey are Portuguese Americans and both have been covered by Glee!



  38. 38

    Amazing? That was god-freaking awful and proof, yet again, that gay men have the worst musical taste on the planet.

    He is an amazing singer, but the real reason that it is number 1 is because he is SOOOO CUTE while singing the song!!! and the song is PERFECT for him. PLus, Katy Perry original version is also number 1 right now, haha. I love this song!



  40. 40

    I like this version, I really don't like the song, but he sang it okay. But I just hate the obvious autotune in it. I don't think that it will top the charts, and it really shouldn't. Why is Glee using autotune so much this season? It sounds stupid on a show that it is supposed to look like they are performing the songs right there.

    loved this song
