Another Glee Star Covers Adele!

| Filed under: AdeleGlee

We don't say this often, but we think you made a mistake, Ryan Murphy. Gwyneth Paltrow shouldn't be singing Adele on Glee next week…

The whole friggin' cast should be! The whole damn episode should be dedicated to her music!

Allow us to prove our point by sharing with you this new video posted by the uber-talented Amber Riley, who plays sassy-pants Mercedes Jones on the show. She's about to blow you away with a beautifully performed cover of Adele's song Someone Like You that she just goes at on the fly in her trailer!

Her tone is perfect. Her voice is flawless. This is just…beautiful! (But again, no one can sing it quite like Adele herself, sorry!)

Check out the video (above) and see if don't agree with us!

Seriously, Ryan, what's wrong with you? Gleeks be lovin' on Adele! You should let them do their thing!!!

    Way better than Gwyneth because Amber kinda sings like Adele. But she can't compete with Adele^^



  2. 2

    NOT EVERYTHING HAS TO BE ABOUT THE FEW ARTISTS YOU LOVE!

    Adele is OKAY… Not an hour long GOOD show worthy.



  3. 3

    Please don't hate on Adele because Perez loves her :)



  4. 4

    I think that she did a fab job. I love Adele and Amber Riley did a great job :-)



  5. 5

    Terrible picture…looks like a hungry pig with a wig!!! Just sayin

    FUCK OFF FAT BOY!! TRUTH IS THIS… ADELE IS A BETTER SONGWRITER THAN SHE IS SINGER. SHE IS NOTHING FANTASTIC. REMINDS ME OF THE 60'S GRASS ROOTS TYPE SINGER, VERY WOODSTOCK LIKE. NOTHING EXTRAORDINARY AS A VOCALIST. POP VERSION OF NORA JONES, YAAAAWN!!!

    Re: :) RaiderChick – who gives a shit? it's about her talent.

    This picture looks like she has a pig's nose.



  9. 9

    Looks like Miss Piggy but not so pink anymore.

    She never mean for this to be seen publicly! She uploaded it on youtube unlisted for her friend. But I bet i'm not the only one who is happy that it got shared, girl needs to sings as much as she can so that we can all be blessed with her voice

    I love Amber Riley but to me this just kind of sounds a bit like one of those youtube wannabe singer who is alright but nothing special. I'm not the biggest Adele fan because I find a whole album a bit much in one go but she has possibly the best live voice of this generation



  12. 12

    That was really beautiful.

    I liked the first trailer for Plant of the apes better

    :)raiderchick just because she's ten times prettier than you does not give you the right to bash her like that. She's looking fucking radiant! By the way please with very little music knowledge you have do not try to qualify a vocalist. Just say that you're not a fan and move the fuck on. I hope we'll get to hear Amber doing this song officially on Glee she literally blew me away :)

    When are glee going to do The Killers?



  16. 16

    Leave it to Adele to make Amber Riley sound like an amateur! Seriously the whole beginning was nothing like the depth Adele can reach. She actually doesn't sound so talented at all.
    And yeah…. bad camera angle, I feel like I could see her brain. :(



  17. 17

    she really just sounds avg…her voice actually sounds very juvenile/little girlish when she isnt belting



  18. 18

    you know maybe GLEE should stick to the cast ON the show and NOT the damn celebs who come in. Gwen was ok for 1 show but 3??? and now someone decided to not only bring her back but have her sing ADELE!!! I don't even know what the story line is anymore and BTW the chick above singing–no. The girl playing Santana is the ONLY one who should be covering this. Her voice is MUCH better then anyone on this show )..but then both these girls have less singing time now anyway because all we get is whinning pissy pants Rachel and the guest celeb. When the boys choir sang Teenage Dream I was in the store buying the GLEE cd. Now I mute when needed.

    Here's an idea GLEE bring the actual singers on to the show OR don't have annoying Gwen sing her songs. Adele worked way too hard for that chick to sing her songs into the ground.

    Adele's fb group has much to say about the fact that NOONE is happy about this.

    nrhgardner did it better on Youtube, and he is a guy.



  20. 20

    Dayyyymn! That voice always gives me some serious chills!

    I love Amber Riley but to me this just kind of sounds a bit like one of those youtube wannabe singer who is alright but nothing special. By JeeksBeek.

    I completely agree.

    I could seriously curl up in a ball and take a nap in her nostrils

    I love her but even she's not your favorite cast member, everyone knows she or Naya Rivera are the only two that should have even been up for doing Adele as a solo, as they're the best voices on the show. I could go on for days about the lack of screen time/character development for the former and singing opportunities for the latter but I'll spare you. The episode hasn't even aired and I'm so pissed about Gwyneth getting it. I adore the whole cast though, so if it wasn't a solo I'd like seeing them all do it together. That aside, why all the hate for Amber? This girl can sing on the fly in her trailer infinitely better than the average person could do on stage with training and preparation. She's extraordinarily talented and to base it off a video she did for fun, that was supposed to be private anyway, is ridiculous. Of course nobody can sing Adele like Adele. Her distinctive voice makes her what she is and Amber still did an awesome job. Nobody's ever heard of a song cover before?

    that camera is too close for comfort..



  25. 25

    This was really beautiful and even though it wasn't meant to be shared to the public, I'm glad it was. I agree with you Perez, I was hopping either Amber, Lea, Jenna or Chris (love my gay boyfriend) to sing Adele not Gwen. She doesn't have a strong enough voice for an Adele song. For the assholes who are talking about her picture and weight are nothing but a bunch of fat asses there damn selves. All you bitches do is come on Perez's website and talk mad shit but have no fucking talent. Go make something of yourselves before sitting on your fat asses and talking shit. FUCKING LOSERS! I love you Amber.

    Not as good as Adele (I suppose only the writer can give the complete emotion to a song) and she is a much better singer in real life than that shit Ryan Murphy makes her do on Glee.



  27. 27

    Amber Riley is not only uber-talented but also THE ONLY TALENTED cast member on this train wreck of a show. I only watched the first half of the pathetic second season on the slight chance that I would hear her sing. But that's not even enough to make me tune in anymore :)



  28. 28

    I wish Amber Riley were featured more often on Glee, she's terrific.



  29. 29

    it doesn't matter how good of a singer you are! no one should cover Adele songs. her success has nothing to do with the writing, its all in her UNIQUE and amazing voice.



  30. 30

    This is no better than an other person covering this song on youtube. Seriously. She may sound good on Glee but she sound ridiculously mediocre on that video. Not impressive.



  31. 31

    I'm not a fan of her voice…



  32. 32

    Gwyneth Paltrow singing ADELE!? She is gonna butcher the F outta the song. Who the hell told her she could sing?? I love Glee but Gwyneth Paltrow is overrated. I dont know how many of her episodes I can watch!



  33. 33

    LOVE LOVE LOVE!



  34. 34

    This video proves why American Idol passed on her…she's good, certainly not great. The producers do wonders on her voice in the studio. This girl is a bitch too. She thinks she's ALL THAT. You're no Adele, honey.
