Glee's Five Worst Covers ... So Far
Glee has managed to piss off yet another singer.
After the show's recent cover of "Somebody That I Used to Know," breakout artist Gotye expressed his frustration with the cast's rendition of his song. "They did such a faithful arrangement of the instrumentals, but the vocals were that pop Glee style, ultra dry, sounded pretty tuned, and the rock has no real sense," he said to Australia's Courier-Mail.
Sure, Gleeks may disagree. But this superpopular Fox show has ruined some amazing songs. So while you're patiently waiting for Tuesday's (inevitably terrible) tribute to Whitney Houston, here is a rundown of Glee's five worst covers ... So far.
5. Ke$ha's "Tik Tok"
It might've been your guilty pleasure for about a week. But even the original version of this song sucked. So this just leaves us with one question: How didGlee
make it even shittier? Oh, yeah ... An extra ass-load of Auto-Tune and glitter.
4. Sisqo's "Thong Song"
This record was meant to celebrate women's underwear. Specifically thongs. We're sure that Sisqo never thought a teacher would sing his hit song while seducing a love interest on a musical TV series. Thank you for ruining a '90s novelty track,Glee
