It's time for mid-winter critiques at NYADA and you know what they say. 'The show must go on!'
But those cuts and bruises certainly didn't stop him from getting a standing ovation after his performance of I'm Still Here (above) at his mid-winter critique in front of the intimidating Madame Tibideaux and his NYADA peers!
Critiques and drama aside, we also get a little hint of what's to come for the future of Samcedes, from the looks of these performances of course!
Before Kurt met his fate, the group was hit with the sad news of their neighbor's passing after a violent and targeted attack. Rachel, Sam, Blaine and Kurt attended the candlelight vigil and paid their respects in the form of a song by singing No One Is Alone.
Rachel opted to perform a duet with Blaine, Broadway Baby, for her mid-winter critique but alas, despite their AH-Mazing efforts, the two were failed because the assignment wasn't a duet! But you seriously can't deny how dynamic this duo is!
After finding out Kurt was hurt and in a hospital, Blaine alerts all the NYC Gleeks and they all headed over to the hospital to tend to their dear friend. After everyone leaves, Blaine starts to sing, Not While I'm Around to his unconscious boyfriend and the performance segues into his solo mid-winter critique performance at NYADA.
Let's switch gears over to Samcedes! Despite the fact that Mercedes did not want to rekindle her relationship with Sam last week, sparks imminently flew between the two and we find them, yet again, back on. So, in true Glee form, Mercedes sings You Make Me Feel Like A Natural Woman around a merry-go-round as she contemplates her relationship with Sam.
However, as quickly as their relationship was revived, it was gone in an instant. Mostly due to the fact that Mercedes' backup singers weren't feeling her dating someone other than her race. After some thinking, the up-and-coming diva apologized to Sam and sang her feelings to him with her debut song, Colorblind. And just like that, they're back together again. What a roller coaster of a ride, right?!
