Why GLEE is Awesome…

Alright, this post isn’t really going to be about GLEE.  It’s Monday and I’m sitting here thinking to myself, I’ve got nothing new yet I can’t let our 9 fans down who look to us so they know what to think.  Then I read about how MIDWEST MIKE is a secret LES MISERABLES fan.

I am not ashamed to say that I am an out of the closet superfan of LES MIS and being so frustrates me when I watch any of the talent search shows.  Really they aren’t really looking for talented singers anymore.  Why would they with auto-tune?

So how does GLEE fit into this?  On May 18, 2010, GLEE had a remake from LES MIS of “I Dreamed A Dream”.  It featured Idina Menzel, who if you don’t know is an extremely talented singer.  She played Maureen in the original Broadway hit RENT.  You might watch the talent shows, but watch this clip to see truly amazing talent.


So on Saturday when SNL did a remake of “One Day More” I loved it. Maybe it’s because the Bears lost and I’m in kind of in a Les Mis mood myself I don’t know.  Anyway, here is a clip from the 25 year anniversary of Les Mis.  If you watch you will see a young Nick Jonas as one of the performers.

 

I promise after this post we will get back to funny.  But we do have some responsibility to make sure you are a well rounded MWTVG follower.
