It’s only a week away from the much talked-about “Glee” 100th episode, which has been previewed in a new sneak-peek video. The snippet offers glimpses at the return of favorite guest stars such as Gwyneth Paltrow and Kristin Chenoweth, who reprise their roles as Holly and April respectively.
They both are featured alongside the current and past members of New Directions in the choir room, singing a never-before-performed track, “Happy” by Pharrell Williams. April also leads the others performing Pink’s “Raise Your Glass”.
Naya Rivera’s Santana is back with her snarky comment, warning everyone about Will’s bad rap skills. She reunites with Heather Morris’ Brittany, as Lea Michele’s Rachel, Amber Riley’s Mercedes, Chris Colfer’s Kurt, Dianna Agron’s Quinn, Mark Salling’s Puck and Harry Shum Jr.’s Mike also return to McKinley High.
Aptly titled “100”, the first part of the milestone episode will air Tuesday, March 18 at 8/7c on FOX. Current and past members of New Directions reunite for one final assignment – to reinvent their favorite performances. But these new versions of the series’ most iconic tracks should not be seen as goodbye to glee club. On the contrary, they are celebrations of what the club has meant to each and every member.
The episode will include a tribute to Cory Monteith’s Finn with Quinn and Puck visiting his jersey memorial. The recent outing “City of Angels”, which aired March 11, also inserted old footage of Monteith’s Finn into New Directions’ performance at the Nationals.
They sang “More Than a Feeling” by Boston, “America” by Neil Diamond and “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” by U2 which were all Finn’s favorite songs, bringing tears to his mother’s eyes.
