Hands down! We have a winner!
This is the best parody of Taylor Swift's Shake It Off, which is already a perfect song as we all know!
Leave it to Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show to feature a cover of said perfect song…with a twist!
In this video, The Roots' Questlove and Kirk Douglas make up the two-man Black Simon & Garfunkel group, and wow, their harmonies were incredible!
They make Shake It Off feel like it was written in the 1970s!
Watch the folksy cover (above)!!!
YES! YES! YES!
Get ready to be thankful, Gleeks!
Or at least all of you Gleeks who, like us, are ALSO Directioners!
And get this! You DON'T have to wait until Thursday night!
You can give it a listen (above)!
But that's not all that's going down at McKinley High and NYADA this week!
You can ALSO expect the return of Sarah Jessica Parker, as she, Lea Michele, and Chris Colfer belt out an INCREDIBLE mash-up of Let's Have a Kiki by the Scissor Sisters and Turkey Lurkey Time from Promises, Promises; Dianna Agron marching her way back to Lima to duet with Naya Rivera and Heather Morris on The Supremes' Come See About Me; The Warblers ALSO taking on Flo Rida's Whistle; and as we've already posted, Jenna Ushkowitz and New Directions going Gangnam Style; as well as Dianna joining Mark Salling, Harry Shum Jr., Amber Riley, and Cory Monteith to cover Homeward Bound by Simon & Garfunkel mixed with Home by Phillip Phillips…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

If only she could be around to see this…
Whitney Houston has JUST became the first woman to have three of her albums in the Billboard 200 chart's top 10 at the same time!
The three albums that are currently topping the chart are:
We couldn't think of a more appropriate tribute to those who lost their lives so tragically ten years ago.
Please watch Paul Simon, of Simon & Garfunkel, perform a heartwrenching and somber acoustic performance of the classic Sound of Silence at Ground Zero today, in honor of the 10th anniversary of the September 11th attacks on the World Trade Center (above).
Powerful. Moving. And undeniably beautiful.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone who lost a loved one that day.
May they R.I.P. and always be remembered.
Across the pond, Adele is breaking some BIG records.
Her sweet 21 is the longest running #1 album in 40 years .
With 18 weeks in the top spot throne, she joins the cool kids club with The Beatles, Elvis Presley, Simon and Garfunkel, and the Bee Gees' Saturday Night Fever soundtrack.
Dang, girl! Your heart may be broken, but your legacy is going to live forever!
