Entertainment behind the scenes
Just when you feared fame may have stripped some of the charm off Fox’s hit show, “Glee”, it sent fans into the summer hiatus with a finale bursting with heart, drama, a few tears, and the magic and chills of the pilot episode.
After a year together, the ageless Glee kids of McKinley High found inspiration with the group and song that started it all, Journey and their hit, “Don’t stop believin’”.
Rachel, Finn and the rest of the New Directions gang were initially dejected and convinced a loss was guaranteed after learning their nemesis, acerbic cheerleading coach, Sue Sylvester, would be one of the “celebrity” judges at the highly anticipated regional competition.
It was nothing a classic Mr. Schue pep-talk couldn’t cure, however. Inspired, they performed a heartfelt and uplifting medley of Journey songs at regionals: “Faithfully”, “Any way you want it”/”Lovin’, touchin’, squeezin’” (mash-up), and “Don’t stop believin’”.
