Ready for Sunshine’s Return? Get Updated on the Glee Storyline

Ready for Sunshine’s Return? Get Updated on the Glee Storyline

Just three more days and there will be Sunshine again on our TVs. Glee’s return after a month-long break also coincides with Charice’s comeback on the show. It’s been seven months since we first saw Charice’s character, Sunshine Corazon, belt out “Listen” and had a “Telephone” diva-off with Rachel. How many non-Gleeks have actually continued watching the series after being disappointed week after week with no Charice on Glee?

Though we here at Charicemania.com encourage you to catch Glee every week, it’s also disheartening to watch a series which took so long to bring back Charice despite her explosive debut on the show. We have religiously posted GleeCaps since the first episode of season 2 until episode 14, but stopped after rumors about Charice’s return became unconvincing.

But now that Charice’s return is a hundred percent sure thing, it’s time for us Chasters to become Gleeks even for just a short time. To better understand what’s happening on Glee, try to watch the episodes you’ve missed. But if you don’t have that much time, just scan through the GleeCaps here at Charicemania.com. Being updated with the Glee storyline can help you relate to discussions and articles throughout the web about Charice being a spy or her new attitude that she’s the best singer alone at the top.

Here are the links for the GleeCaps of episodes 1-14:

The two episodes we haven’t recapped are ep. 15 “Sexy” and ep. 16 “Original Song”. So here are short recaps for each:

“Sexy” was the second episode where Gwyneth Paltrow guested as substitute teacher, Holly Holliday. She is now teaching sex ed, and Will asks for her help in teaching the glee club about sex through a song. Important events that happened incude: Will and Holly kissed, Santana reveals her feelings for Brittany, Finn and Quinn have a secret relationship, Kurt learns about sexuality with the help of his dad, and Emma admits that she’s still a virgin.

Musical numbers were plenty, from Holly’s “Do You Wanna Touch Me” by Joan Jett, Santana’s “Landslide” by Fleetwood Mac, the Celibacy Club’s “Afternoon Delight” by Starland Vocal Band, Will’s “Kiss” by Prince, and the Warbler’s “Animal” by Neon Trees.

For now, Hulu is a U.S. service only.

“Original Song” was the Regionals episode where New Directions competed with other Glee clubs, Aural Intensity and The Warblers. The focus of the episode was the glee club’s search for a winning song list. They first decided to do “Sing” by Chemical Romance, but scrapped it when Sue sabotaged their efforts. New Directions decided to write original songs which will give them an edge during the competition. For the Warblers, Kurt got the chance to sing lead vocals during Regionals when the club agreed to a duet with him and Blaine. They also shared their first kiss in this episode.

During the competition, Sue picked “Jesus is My Friend” for Aural Intensity to sing as the judges all had religious backgrounds. The Warblers performed “Misery” by Maroon 5 and “Raise Your Glass” by Pink. New Directions sang “Get It Right” and “Loser Like Me”, all are original songs. After a heated discussion between the judges, New Directions were proclaimed as the winner. They will now proceed to the Nationals competition where they will compete against Sunshine Corazon’s Vocal Adrenaline.

    Hello! I have already downloaded ABM song by CHARICE on itunes just few minutes ago. However, you must look for GLEE CAST not Charice. I believe it is number #38 on itunes as I speak. It’s worth buying this song. Charice is pitch perfect, amazing, amazing singer!! WOWWW!! Also, her new single “ONE DAY” is an excellent song. Thank you Jonas for writing and producing this song. It is such a fun song to dance to, upbeat, and love the lyrics. I also bought “Before It Explode” another excellent song and I thank Mr. Bruno Mars for your collaborations. I can’t wait to hear all Charice’s new singles on the radio and I am anxious for her new CD. SHE’s BACK!!

    YAY!! After a long and cold winter season, the sun is FINALLY shining again :)!! So fellow Chasters, are you ready to top Itune chart with Charice new singles (ABM and Before it explodes) or what????!!!! I don’t know about everyone else but I ve been nagging (and annoying) just about everyone I know to watch Glee tomorrow and buy her single on Itunes lol.
    PS: This is my first time posting btw. Nice to meet everyone :) However, I’m not really a newbie because I’ve been lurking in charicemania for awhile. But since it’s such a special occasion, I feel like I need to share my happiness, enthusiasm and excitement with everyone here lol.

    Do you think they used the actual vocal/sound recording from this stage performance? I can hear her breath in and it looks so in sync. Charice is one performer who does best performing live, which is a very special talent. I actually love her YouTube live performances sometimes better than studio recordings, not all, but there are a few. The quality of the sound probably not, but the delivery, absolutely! One of which is the “Grown up Christmas Wish” performance in NBC. It was just such an amazing delivery there was magic in that song!!! I still listen to it now even if Christmas was months ago and months away J Another instance was when there was a hitch in her ABM performance in Mandalay Bay, what could have been a disaster, her musical genius just took over and turned it to be one of the most spectacular versions of “All By Myself”. David Foster couldn’t be prouder with the way Charice saved the song.
     
    I remembered reading a Glee article that mentioned when they shot LISTEN, they decided to use the actual, normal reactions of the cast during Charice’ performance and not having to let them “act it out”. I believe it was the same exact scenario here. Did I see some teary-eyed Gleek? You betcha! That’s the Charice’ effect. And I thought I was weird when I found myself tearing up during the early days of my Chaddiction J Thanks to Charicemania, I know I’m not alone. No shrink needed!

    Following Charice’s career is like reading an exciting novel that you cannot put down even for a moment!
    .
    & a whole new chapter begins April 19th!
    .
    With THREE new singles plus her Glee songs being released over the next few weeks – happy days!
    .
    Join us at CM Chat 30 minutes before Glee for a buying party to push “Before it Explodes” and “All By Myself” up in the iTunes & Amazon rankings just before the Gleeks show-up to buy “All By Myself” as that will help sales of both, especially, “Before it Explodes” (which is more important to Charice’s career)

      Webby at what time on April 19 (EST, PST) do we begin downloading together? As long as we get it to no.1 in during that hour…will it be recorded no.1 as such?

    What a WORHTY LONG wait for the light of Sunshine Corazon to shine again in Glee. The other day, I already sneak-peek her lines and listen her sung “All By Myself”..I was already exploding with enthusiam and amazement..kinda satisfied already that I finally watch our princess having an exchange and intense conversation with Rachel and the rest of the cast…and when the part where she sung…my jaw dropped..mouth can’t hardly close..butterflies are tickling inside my stomach and found myself floating in the air! As April 19 hits the clock and Glee airs…I have to wait til a week since Kuwait is late airing Glee but it wouldn’t sadden me coz my fingers will be busy uploading Cha’s 3 singles and ABM at itunes…SO CHASTERS…we hit it and we bring it on… BEFORE IT EXPLODES…!..LOVE you so MUCH CHARICE and proud of my Chaster Family! Good mor-nights CHASTERS! muah from Kuwait!

    To those who worry that Charice’s accent may cause an “Alexandra Wallace (of Asians in the Library fame)” reaction – don’t worry. The American demographic has, in the decades since my youth, swung 180% in favor of all things Asian. The few, isolated instances, where certain individuals express resentment towards “imperfect English”, are usually uttered by freaks, who themselves are destined to experience unsatisfactory marriages, and workplace relationships. Their worlds, tend to be tiny, insulated “made up” environments. That being said, should any of the producers, or writers for Glee, have special headaches associated with Charice’s, novice ability, most likely “inside Hollywood” pressure will cause Charice to continue reappearing. I have a suspicion that the regular cast member’s genuinely adore that beautiful, little lady.

      The way I see it, as long as the other cast members don’t see cha as a threat to displace them, or hurt their careers, all will be fine. Adore Cha the person or not, keep in mind the life of an actor is extremely competitive, cut throat and fleeting, so actors need to make it while they can. It would be great to hear anecdotal stories of some of the more experienced glee actors and others working with Cha on her acting — that would be a big endorsement of their acceptance of her among them.

      Also, if Cha’s Glee appearances can help their careers, perhaps by c8ing opportunities for them in Asian markets — product endorsements, special appearances, either individually or as a group, that would really garner additional support from the cast of Cha success on the show.

      Since Charice is a foreign exchange student, then an accent is expected because stereotypically that is the role that is expected of foreign students (though usually played by other Asians or Europeans, so the accent was not a problem for me (although I do have an issue of everyone assuming that foreign exchange students must have an accent; I mean English in the Philippines if spoken correctly should still be pronounced right, such as F should sound like F not P, and the vowels more pronounced phonetically sound). But that is not issue.

      Anyway, Charice should be not put down for her accent because that is the role she is expected to play – and that she did well (as we all know Charice can remove her accent in signing!), but the acting itself needs to progressively improved as it has done so considerably compared to her 1st appearance.

    right venice,people should not expect that we Asian will speak the language fluently…if in case Charice were born in the US,that will have to be expected…but she is learning fast…and the truth is not all americans can speak their language right coz’ most of them have grammatic failure…let’s just be happy for our princess achievements and to those intriguers…shut your mouth!!!!

    Had to post again today after a hilarious conversation with a friend about CHARICEs ACTING . It caught me off guard . But a very powerful statement made in her behalf . So am sharing for it to multiply.

    HAVE YOU EVER SEEN JACKY CHAN SPEAK STRAIGHT ENGLISH IN ANY OF HIS HOLLYWOOD FILMS , INTONATION INCLUDED ?

    HAVE YOU EVER SEEN JET LI SPEAK SUCCESSIVE SENTENCES IN ENGLISH IN ANY OF HIS FILMS ?

    Never ! ….. Why ? Because thier role is to be Asian and Asian diction is the most natural thing !

    Charice ? her role was the creation of GLEE .

    If the DIRECTOR was not satisfied with her acting , he could have called a thousand and one RETAKES !

    AMEN TO THAT !

      Its the same thing with David Carradine played as Chinese Monk in tv series “Kung-Fu”. David being a Caucasian (White) He tried to act and speak English with asian accent because that’s the role he was playing.I just don’t understand people who expect someone to speak perfect english without a hint of accent even when they are playing a foreign role.Look at former California Governor Arnold schwarzenegger speaks with heavy Austrian accent and yet was successful with his career. Some of Charice fans says they are proud of her and proud to be pinoy and yet some critizes her accent. I just don’t get it?

    it’s about time ryan murphy and the glee producers realize that our little princess can really augment even more the ratings of the show. she should not appear in only just once or two episodes but she should now be a permanent part of the cast until the end. hey, guys, you know very well she is excellent and a fan-producing artist.

    can’t wait till tuesday! “at the top, baby!”

    We know Sunshine Corazon is an unassuming, sweet little girl with a voice in her debut episode. Now it’s surprising to have a twist in her character and suddenly she became vocal in saying she’s a better singer than everyone else! That Sunshine excites me more and so curious to know what she’s really up to in her breaking in to the ground of New Direction. Come 19, I won’t skip Glee episodes anymore.
