As per usual, album covers for the digital release of Glee‘s weekly music give us the official word on what songs will be featured in the show’s upcoming episodes. You can find the details of tracks to be used in “Diva” below.
The episode will feature seven songs, with eight singles being released:
Glee gossip site GleekOutBR offers up these further details about who’s singing what. These spoilers remain unsourced by the site, but it can be noted that it has proved extremely accurate in the past and has correctly listed the musical numbers each week this season, prior to Amazon’s release. For your speculation:
“Diva” – Beyoncé – New Directions Girls and Blaine
“Don’t Stop Me Now” – Queen – Blaine
“Nutbush City Limits” – Ike and Tina Turner – Santana
“Make No Mistake (She’s Mine)” – Barbra Streisand and Kim Carnes – Sam and Santana
“Bring Him Home” – Les Misérables – Rachel and Kurt
“Hung Up” – Madonna – Tina
“Girl On Fire” – Alicia Keys – Santana
“Bring Him Home” is definitely accurate, as Ryan Murphy has previously confirmed a Les Mis number on Twitter and the covers obviously list the solo singers. This looks set to be another Kurt and Rachel “diva-off,” reminiscent of season 1’s “Defying Gravity,” when a solo version of each half of their “diva-off” was released. The big question is: why? What could they possibly be competing for at this point in the show? Given that the synopsis mentions Kurt becoming frustrated with Rachel’s arrogance, perhaps it’s a personal, “you’re not better than me” confrontation. It’s also interesting that “Bring Him Home” is the inverse of “Defying Gravity” – this time, it’s Rachel singing a famous male show-stopper. It’s unsurprising that Glee has chosen to cover another Misérables song, given the current popularity of the new film, but if it wasn’t a “diva-off,” we would have liked to see these two have a proper Les Mis duet – maybe on a funny “Master of the House” or a moving “Little Fall of Rain.”
As for the other songs, they all make sense. It was already known that Santana will feature on three songs in “Diva,” and that she would be confronting Sam and Brittany about their relationship, so “Make No Mistake (She’s Mine)” seems obvious. The Tina Turner song is also confirmed to be her, and we’re betting that “Girl On Fire” is a big, introspective number where she makes the decision to try and move on – and move to New York City. Stills from the episode confirm a Blaine-and-the-girls number, we can’t think of better way for Glee to do “Don’t Stop Me Now” than as a Blaine solo, and Tina singing “Hung Up” about Blaine fits with the synopsis released by GleeZone.
“Diva” will air on February 7.
