Coach Sylvester criticizes Santana for being too young to get plastic surgery because her character got breast implants over the summer. This can be regarded as a comment on the widely reported rumor that before starting to film her role on Glee (2009), Charice received Botox treatments (Botox is also a cosmetic surgery procedure).

Tone down the auto-tune
21 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Fantastic episode, great way to kick off the new season. I really enjoyed the Empire State of Mind routine at the beginning, as well telephone in the girls bathroom.

One thing that is getting rather annoying in the series is the blatant use of auto-tune. Its use seemed incredibly obvious when Sunshine was slightly off at the beginning, of Telephone, then auto-tune kicked in and they both were spot on every note. I really respect the time and effort performers put into their voices, auto-tune is a blatant slap in the face to their skill. Please stop making over-produced songs for this show- let them showcase their real voices.
