Fox’s Glee continues to gain steam as a crossover hit, entertaining the eyes and ears of audiences nationwide.
Fox Tuesday released on iTunes four of the popular show’s covers for the week: The Supremes‘ classic “You Keep Me Hangin’ On,” Jill Scott’s “Hate On Me,” Jordin Sparks and Chris Brown’s “No Air,” and Avril Lavigne’s “Keep Holding On.”
Ten of the cast’s cover songs — most notably Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’,” “Rihanna’s “Take A Bow,” and Kanye West’s “Gold Digger,” — are dotting the landscape of the iTunes’ current top 200 list. A forthcoming album compilation of songs from the series, Glee: The Music, Volume 1, hits stores Nov. 3, and is sure to be among the most popular stocking stuffers this winter.
The show details the story of Will, a passionate high school music teacher (Matthew Morrison) who tries to salvage the school’s waning glee club program with a Bad News Bears-esque array of talents to choose from. Will, in this week’s episode clashes with the show’s conniving cheerleading coach, Sue (Jane Lynch), leading to a dramatic showdown — in the principal’s office.
Glee airs Wednesdays on Fox at 9/8c.
