This time last year, the “Glee” cast covered Rebecca Black’s viral sensation “Friday” for their junior prom, and now that they’re wrapping up senior year, the Fox crew has taken on the latest song to sweep the nation: One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful.”
In the video above, Artie (Kevin McHale), Sam (Chord Overstreet), Mike (Harry Shum, Jr.), Joseph (Samuel Larsen) and Rory (Damian McGinty) take the stage at McKinley High’s prom, performing the British boy band’s hit. Screaming girls and choreographed boy band moves are, of course, in no short supply. The tuxedoed quintet dances on stage while their peers celebrate senior prom, barely changing the sound or style of the original version.
The dinosaur-themed “Prom-asaurus” episode will also feature Selena Gomez’s “Love You Like a Love Song,” Ke$ha’s “Dinosaur,” Berlin’s “Take My Breath Away,” and Fergie’s “Big Girls Don’t Cry.”
After the prom episode airs on Tuesday, May 8, only two episodes of “Glee” season three remain; the two-hour “Props/Nationals” episode airs on May 15, with the finale, “Goodbye,” airing May 22. With several cast members graduating, it’s still unclear what the future of “Glee” — which has been renewed for a fourth season — will hold.
