Without question, some of our favorite episodes have always been competition ones. Sectionals, Regionals, Nationals, Miss Universe - we love them all! Mostly, because Ryan Murphy and Co. save their best musical performances for the big occassion and next week's winter finale (waaah!) is no exception.
Aside from the New Directions mashing the hell out of Nicki Minaj and R. Kelly for a fly remix of Minajesty's single and the iconic I Can Believe I Can Fly, but the Warblers are singing two songs (including the long awaited tribute to The Wanted), Darren Criss takes on Young The Giant, and Lea Michele returns with a solo from Halestorm. Granted, she cleans up the lyrics a little bit, but it's still pretty damn bad ass!
You can hear Lea's solo on Here's To Us in the video (above), then CLICK THE JUMP to hear the rest of the incredible music.
The rapper performed two songs, Ultralight Beam and Highlights on the show, both of which you can ch-ch-check out (below), with guests Chance the Rapper, Kelly Price, Kirk Franklin, The-Dream and El Debarge!!!
