As Gleeks await the return of Fox’s hit series ‘Glee,’ those attending the White House’s annual Easter Egg Roll, and anyone tuning in online, were treated to a live performance from the singing and dancing cast.
‘Glee’ stars ran through the Queen song “Somebody to Love” first, with the whole group getting on the action. Next up was “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” performed by Matthew Morrison, playing a ukulele, and Mark Salling, who then sang “Sweet Caroline.” “True Colors” was then sung by Jenna Ushkowitz followed by Stephanie Mills singing “Home.” Wrapping up the energetic set was a group performance of the now smash-take on Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’.”
If anyone was wondering what the upcoming live ‘Glee’ tour might look or sound like, chances are this White House performance was a good sneak peak. And, just so Fox helps reminds viewers when the show returns (April 13 at 9:28 p.m.), the network kicks off ‘Gleek Week’ today, which is set to include multiple ‘Glee’ themed network events.
Fox also promises ‘Glee’ fans an upcoming iPhone and iPad app, although no specific launch date is currently listed.
