Darren Criss nails his rendition of “Beauty School Dropout.”
Pairing “Glee” with “Grease” is as obvious a partnership as PB&J, ketchup and fries, Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber, etc. “Glee” must agree with us, because they are officially dedicating their upcoming episode to the classic musical! And did we mention the episode is called “Glease”? We know, IT’S TOO CUTE. Although we’re sure all of the Gleeks’ “Grease” covers will be on point, we’re prematurely nominating Darren Criss’s rendition of “Beauty School Dropout” for the win.
Listen to Darren Criss from “Glee” sing “Beauty School Dropout” after the jump.
Of course the oh-so-suave Blaine would be chosen to tackle Teen Angel’s “Beauty School Dropout,” and guess what — he totally nails it! Showcasing his classic baritone vocals, Darren/Blaine’s rendition has the perfect balance of retro and sparkling pop production found in most “Glee” songs (after all, Darren’s preppified version of Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream” will always live forever in our hearts). Aaaand we’re currently counting down the seconds until the show airs and we get to see Darren act all adorable and do things LIKE THIS. But only way hotter! Look out for Darren/Blaine’s “Beauty School Dropout” cover on Thursday, Nov. 8, at 9 p.m. ET on FOX!
