GleeCap: “New York” Season 2 Finale

GleeCap: “New York” Season 2 Finale

All you need to know is that New Directions lost and Charice’s Vocal Adrenaline won. But of course, knowing the moments that lead to this result is part of the fun. So here’s a short recap of Glee’s season 2 finale:

One main reason for the defeat of New Directions is, obviously, their lack of preparation. The episode starts off with them chilling in Times Square while they still have two songs to write and choreograph for the competition. Will, instead of coaching them through the song-making process, lies to the club and visits “CrossRhodes: The April Rhodes Story” in Broadway, where a guard catches Will singing on stage.

For inspiration, the glee club explores the streets of New York City with a lot of singing and a lot of choreography. One amazing musical number is the mash-up of “New York, New York” and “I Love New York”. It’s back to songwriting again for the members but the boys convince Finn to take Rachel out on a date. While Rachel and Finn are out on their “work date”, they meet Patti Lupone, Rachel’s idol. Finchel is looking really sweet so right on cue, the New Direction guys serenades them with “Bella Notte”. But the date doesn’t end well when Rachel rejects Finn’s kiss.

The next morning, Kurt and Rachel have breakfast at Tiffany’s and they talk about their New York dreams and how Finn could possibly hold back Rachel. One thing leads to another, and suddenly, they’re on the stage of “Wicked” where they’re given a chance to sing on stage for a couple of minutes by the kind-hearted usher.

Will almost decides to leave the glee club but a meeting with Dustin Goolsby changes that. On the day of Nationals, Rachel finds Sunshine Corazon throwing up because of nervousness. Rachel comforts her and convinces her to continue with Vocal Adrenaline’s number. Sunshine brought the house down with “As Long As You’re There”, while the rest of her club danced in the background.

New Direction’s numbers, “Pretending” and “Light Up the World” were both good but their chance of winning was hurt when Rachel and Finn shared an unplanned kiss on stage. In the end, New Directions didn’t even crack the top 10, while the Sunshine-powered Vocal Adrenaline came out on top.

Charice on Glee

Sunshine Corazon was a trending topic on Twitter for hours after the Glee finale aired. ,While others were critiquing the style of her clothes and physical appearance, almost everyone agreed that her performance of the difficult “As Long As You’re There” was amazing.

The person behind “As Long As You’re There” is songwriter/producer Claude Kelly. He even tweeted in support of Charice and Glee: “who wins at sectionals on @GleeonFox!? i’m rooting for Sunshine Corazon (@OfficialCharice)…#PowerBalladsin2011″.

Kelly also promoted the song through Twitter: “GLEE FANS! the season finale is here! i wrote “AS LONG AS YOUR THERE”-original song sung by Charice (SunshineCorazon)-its on iTunes! Go BUY!”

Lots of Glee fans and Chasters are speculating wether Charice will return on Glee’s third season. Despite the fans’ disappointment about the 3-episode appearance of Charice, everything ends on a high note with “As Long As You’re There”. And just remember the impact Charice had on Glee’s season debut with “Listen” and “Telephone”, and also “All By Myself”, you could definitely say that Glee helped Charice, and that Charice also helped Glee.

So Chasters, do you want Charice to be in Glee’s Season 3?

GleeCap: “Funeral” Ep. 21 Season 2 – Plus Charice’s Finale Song Sneak Peek

“Funeral” is such a sad-sounding title that no one should have been too surprised in shedding a few tears while watching last night’s episode.  What was surprising was the person behind those emotional scenes, and surprisingly, it was Sue. Yes, Sue Sylvester – the adult bully of McKinley.

Preparation for Nationals has begun and Will enlisted the help of Jesse St. James, an ex-member of Vocal Adrenaline. They both agreed on holding an audition to select the New Directions member who will get to sing a solo in New York.  Caught up with the idea of winning their first Nationals appearance, Will stopped Becky from joining the glee club.
