Trivia

Rachel (Lea Michele) and Kurt (Chris Colfer) sing a medley of the songs "Happy Days Are Here Again" and "Come on, Get Happy." This combination and arrangement was first performed by Barbra Streisand and Judy Garland on an October 1963 episode of "The Judy Garland Show." Rachel's and Kurt's costumes in this scene are also nods to the Garland-Streisand duet: Streisand wore a white satin sailor-style blouse with a dark tie and Rachel wore a replica of that top; Garland wore a shiny dress and Kurt wore a shiny suit.

Goofs

Kurt mentions that "Make 'Em Laugh" in "Singin' in the Rain" is a duet. It is, in fact, a solo number performed by Donald O'Connor. The closest to a duet it gets is when he uses a life-size rag doll as a prop. The big Gene Kelly/Donald O'Connor number is "Moses Supposes". See more »

Quotes

Rachel Berry: I'm not really a nice person. I'm selfish. The fact is, I'm only really generous if there's something in it for me.
Finn Hudson: Yeah, but I still like you.
Rachel Berry: But you, you're so... kind, and open. Well, it's made me wanna be a better person. We have to throw the competition.
Finn Hudson: I love Breadstix.
Rachel Berry: No, if we wanna win at Nationals, then Sam has to win this contest. Okay? He has to feel like he belongs and the team has to believe in him.
Finn Hudson: Wow, Rachel... I've never seen you like this. I'm kind of impressed.
Rachel Berry: Well, like...

Just a music fan..

I only watch 'Glee' for one reason... I love music! The fact is they could throw out all the story lines and just sing and I would like the show much more. But as the story lines are geared to introducing the varied musical styles/songs, I endure.

There have been several episodes over the past two seasons that have really stood out, musically, for me. Most notably, "Home" from season one with Kristin Chenoweth ("Pushing Daisies".. and a superb singing voice) and Matthew Morrison ("Will Shuster") performing a mash-up duet of Burt Bacharach's "One Less Bell to Answer" and Luther Vandross' styled cover of "A House is Not a Home". Brilliant performance!

The more I watch the show, the more impressed I am with Lea Michele's ("Rachael") voice. Watching her sing last season I kept comparing her to a young Barbra Streisand and in a few performances she blew me away with her Streisand'esquire singing style and range.

In this episode she performs a wonderful duet with Chris Colfer ("Kurt") of "Happy Days Are Here Again" and pays homage to Streisand in voice and in dress. A Great Performance!

The duets by "Kurt" & "Rachael" and "Mercedes" & "Santana" duet of Ike & Tina Turner's classic "River Deep - Mountain High" are the two superb musical standouts of this episode.
