Glee First Look: Watch Matthew Morrison and Kristin Chenoweth's 'Dreams' Duet Now!

April Rhodes is back — and just in time to celebrate McKinley High’s version of Fleet week!

Kristin Chenoweth’s randy kookmeister returns to Fox’s Glee this Tuesday (8/7c) to lend her considerable charm (and her even more considerable pipes!) to the Fleetwood Mac-themed hour titled, appropriately, “Rumours.”

Spoiler Alert: Glee Death Clue!

In the following exclusive clip, April and Will get those old sparks flying again when they perform a cover of “Dreams” in front of a glaptive (glee club + captive) audience.

    Glee, Please leave Fleetwood Mac alone.. Landslide was a disaster. This one is just boring. Leave the classics, get back to Rihanna’s songs.

    • Paul says:

      I think they did a great job with this song and the other songs in this episode are really good too. They can sing more than just top 40 songs well you know.

      • N says:

        I heard the other songs and I believe that this is the weakest setlist they had in a while. I love Fleetwood Mac, but Glee can’t really built episode around it.
        and my point was that they can’t. because It’s just not such a hard work to outsing Justin Bieber. but when their covers of The Beatles, The Doors, and AC/DC were a mess. They should cover 80 pop songs only. the big classics are just too good for this massive-production-auto-tune kind of thing. (It works for the old pop songs, I guess).

        • J says:

          Glee is a great television but I agree that it should stop covering so many wonderful songs and sometimes they do cover them very well it’s just the fact that these songs are known from Glee and not the original product that sometimes bothers me.It also gets credit for covers like having the most singles on the billboard hot 100 beating out the Beatles that to me is unfair since the Glee songs are mostly covers and the Beatles all worked hard to achieve what Glee did by covering the songs

          • Kimberly says:

            Learn about music, sugar. Some of the most popular/highly sold singles by the bands you mention were covers themselves. A cover is not meant to be an imitation, that is where people like you get it wrong. They sing a cover, which is their OWN TAKE on a song that already exists. Do a little research on bands like Led Zep, the Stones, AC/DC, and yes, the Beatles. Plenty of their songs were, in fact, covers of songs by the likes of Howlin’ Wolf, John Lee Hooker, and others. Glee does a wonderful job with these songs, as long as you can open their eyes and see them for what they are. Remember that this show is about a high school show choir, not a group of veteran band members. Stop having unrealistic expectations and just enjoy it for what it IS, rather than what you think it should be.

          • gary says:

            I agree 100 percent

          • mommaoftwinners says:

            The fact that Glee is covering these songs is also making them popular with the younger generations that are mostly only familiar with billboard top 100. They are downloading songs by the original artists as well as the “Glee Cast Version”. Besides, I’m fairly certain that the producers have to get permission from the original artists before they can cover the songs. Its a win/win situation.

          • Nick says:

            i agree with kimberly, they do their own take on other songs. Just to make it even, name your favorite singer/band, then look up what “covers” they have done, im pretty sure they at least did one!

          • CB says:

            AMEN. Glee is introducing great music to a generation who thinks that if it was recorded before 1998 it isn’t cool. There are decades of great music out there. They are paying homage and I think, they are doing a great job.

          • Josie says:

            Kimberly, 10000000% agree.

          • alex power says:

            they may be covering songs and beating things like the beatles but the fact is the beatles are past glee is present if they are beating the beatles on the billboard then good for them they have amazing voices and so what if they cover songs not harming anyone!

            i have respect for the cast of glee they are amazing and the stories they put behind the songs make it easy to relate to for alot of people young and old.

            talking about taking it from the original product look how as soon as glee did the whole Journey thing Journey’s albums and tracked sold so much more and became popular again so if anything its helping the original product re-sell and become popular again so i believe your wrong on that one!

        • b says:

          Ok one if you are going to rip on something spell check it. Two they always do an amazing job and you haters are just jealous.

        • Diane says:

          I think this is the best setlist they’ve had in a while, and I think the version of Songbird has a lot of emotion in it. And none of the songs are autotuned, the only horrible autotuning the do are with Top 40 songs. I personally think that their Beatles covers, although they were different, were beautiful.

        • Jeannie says:

          Gotta disagree with auto tune. Both actors are phenomenal singers in their own right. This was a really nice, understated version of the original.

    • Steph says:

      If I may, I know that Landslide is originaly Fleetwood Mac song, but Glee covered the Dixie Chicks version. And it was pretty good in my opinion.

    • rosiesgirl1 says:

      stop being so negative, your opinion sucks

      • Sam says:

        Everyone is entitled to their opinions. I don’t agree with it but if thats what they think then whatever.

    • F says:

      I beg to differ. I think Fleetwood Mac was excellent done but Michele. And I think that this is a great version as well. Landslide is not a favorite song of mine to begin with so I don’t really care about that one.

    • JC says:

      Were we watching the same performance, cuz I absolutely loved it. The whole reason behind the song and the vocals were perfect for the song.

    • keller93 says:

      you have no taste of musik every song they made from glee where great and this one is great too why do you think the young children hear more older musik because of glee

      • Jessica says:

        Uhm, no. Plenty of younger children hear older music from their parents, aunts/uncles and grandparents. I may be 20 now, but growing up all the music I listened to was from my parents generation and I’ve heard the original to almost every song they’ve preformed on Glee long before Glee started airing. I never even listened to what was playing on the radio until well into my teens (excluding acts like Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC.) and I still really don’t. I’ll take 70’s and 80’s music over current any day. My 11 year old cousin listens to more oldies than current as well. Point being, don’t lump whole generations together. Just because one person is one way doesn’t mean the whole group is.

        • Casi says:

          I agree with Jessica. I’m 22 and well-known for my obsession with 80s music. This mostly stems from my parents’ influence.

      • N says:

        Whatever. I like the fact that bands like Fleetwood Mac gets some promotion thru the show, but most of the kids are just going to have the glee versions on their ipods. Those versions are a nice homage to the original songs but those kids needs to be exposed to the real music instead of those weak covers.

    • VballBaby158 says:

      @N- Yeah, I disagree too. I think this was good. Most covers are not going to be better than the originals. And ick, we here enough popular crap on the radio. It’s nice to know people still listen to and encourage others to listen to someone as great as Fleatwood Mac.

    • K says:

      Agreed. Love the Glee, but come on! That was the MOST white-washed, soul-free, bland version of Dreams EVER!! Stick to POP my little Gleeksm it’s what you do best!

    • Licille says:

      Rihanna who???

    • well... says:

      in the episode where they did landslide i thought they were more covering the dixie chicks covering landslide.

    • Pitboy says:

      Not everyone want to continuously hear Rihanna dribble. There’s a lot of music genres out there, and more than just your age group demographic to consider. Touching on Rumours is brilliant, as it pays homage to a sound and a time before you were born, and that sat at the top of the charts for a decade. How was “Dreams”? It was just ok, I will agree, but to NOT do it, would be a mistake. This show continuously dips into material that surprises. They need to keep that up, to keep it fresh. You dont need only new music to do that.

    • Me says:

      You guys suck. You jsut give negative comments on glee. The songs are great. You people just suck. You dont know how to appreciate and you guys are just jealous

  2. C says:

    I thought this was great. Nice fresh sound on an oldie. Plus, the reactions of the different characters to different lyrics seemed fitting and open to fun drama. I’m looking forward to this episode

    • Ruby says:

      Your use of “fresh” implies that you think the original was “stale.” I love Cheno, she’s a wonderful singer, but this version is soulless.

      • BRETT says:

        You’re really reaching there…. it just means a different take, nothing was knocking the original. Where are all the smart TVLine posters today?

      • Kimberly says:

        Calling this fresh in no way implies the original was stale, that’s ridiculous. It simply means it is fresh, as in new, recent, NOW.

  3. amanda says:

    OMG Santana and Artie seems mad but Brittany is so oblivious!

  4. Courtney says:

    Loved what was going on in Artie and Finn’s faces during that song. Both of them looking a mite suspicious while Brittany and Quinn looked on obliviously. Something interesting playing out in Santana as well.

    Aside from the obvious size difference, kinda looked like Kurt was dressing out of his Dad’s closet this week…

    I enjoyed the song, too. Anytime Chenoweth sings is a good time. Landslide was more meh… possibly because I have just heard the original a few too many times.

  5. Kara says:

    Something’s up with Finn and Quinn. Oh god, let them end already!!!!!

  6. Kara says:

    I LOVE KRISTIN CHENOWETH. She’s the best guest star Glee has ever had!

    • BRETT says:

      When she was singing “Alone”, yes, now, no, not even close.

    • cortney says:

      I love her too!!! A co-worker and I were talking about when are the going to bring April back and how we want Schuster and her to get together, this was befor the whole Holly thing started, but we want him over Emma

  7. Lisse says:

    Finn freaking Hudson, you need to wake up and see what’s in front of you. Go back to the girl you really love!

  8. Josh says:

    I think what the show does worst is the audiences’ reactions to all of the songs. They look cheesy and could not appear more fake. It’s cringe-inducing.

  9. Connie says:

    Love Fleetwood Mac.

    Moving along, who is tanner, Kristin or Snooki? She’s gorgeous, but all I can think of when I look at her is scrubbing her down with a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser.

  10. Jenny says:

    Wow, they are great together. So happy she returned!

  11. DDL131 says:

    Even for Glee, which has been doing better about this recently, this is some TERRIBLE lip-syncing.

  12. lucy says:

    She is back. Why miss holiday should come back insted

  13. Maileen says:

    I think it’s Principal Figgins.

  14. Willy says:

    Muy Buenooooo Los Miro Siempre!!!!!!! Besote a Todos Desde Argentina!!!!!! :)

  15. Ciara Tobin says:

    Glee Cast I make sure all of my homework is done and everything is settled so that on time every week I can watch your show! I loved Kristin the first time on the show and watching her on broadway in Wicked. She will be very comical when she returns I am sure! :)

  16. ace says:

    April Rhodes rocks! Forget Glee, can we just have a show of Kristin Chenowith singing?

    • lolo says:

      your right! this song had amazing vocals on her part! people are beinging a little too critical.. it was well done, better than some others.

  17. Alex says:

    I love Kristin Chenowith but gosh, she looks so skinny!!

  18. Marc says:

    It’s amazing!!!! It’s beautiful…I can’t wait for this episode any longer. Fleetwood Mac FTW!!
    btw, why do all the glee club students look/act weird? (it’s a good kind of weird)
    LOVE IT! Kristin & Matt, you always sing great duets “Alone” “Fire” and now “Dreams” simply amazing

  19. Samm says:

    I LOVE glee!and to all the haters..STOP WATCHING IT,glee has tons of people who love it already,we dont need your rude opinions >.< ima a total Gleek(:

  20. elizabeth marie says:

    Glee is so great I have wached every episod and have neve missed one yet I can wait to get them on dvd so I can wach them agein I love glee im a glee person and im proud to be one :) :)

  21. Brandon says:

    Did you see the way that Artie looked at Kurt? And what about the way that Finn was looking at Quinn? I wonder what is going to go on.

  22. Bone says:

    Kurt wore that same shirt in the Duets episode…

    • Sean says:

      I caught that one too! I think he wore it better in “Duets”… maybe because it was buttoned all the way lol.

    • Mark says:

      Lol isn’t that a good thing that he’s rewearing a shirt? It makes it more realistic. Why would they have different outfits everyday in the real world? :P

    • Marc says:

      Everyone wears the same outfit more than once. I saw Rachel’s shirt in “Duets” and in “Comeback” ..and I agree with Mark (with the a K) that it looks more realistic.

  23. thisguy says:

    Is Santana going to be the female Glee character who dies? That’s all I want to know because she has one of the best voices on the show! And with the way that her relationship with Brittany is going, I think it shows definite signs of her self-inflicted departure. Maybe it’s just me though.

    • Paul says:

      It’s a “beloved” guest star. No one in the main cast is dying.

    • Camilla says:

      It’s clearly April! She a female she’s beloved if she dies all glee club would go to her funeral and besides she’d leave all her fortune to glee so could go to nationals and it wouldn’t be surprising ’cause of her drinking problem. I love her but she’s gonna die…

  24. Nichole says:

    I think the worst cover was time of my life at sectionals. I love when glee does classic rock!

  25. JD says:

    Just enjoy it for what it is…….FUN, get over being a critic. They’re young people doing a good show. Enjoy it for what it is. If not, DON’T WATCH

    • Marc says:

      Thank You JD! It’s such a fun show. It’s a dark comedy and musical. People are too critical on every minute thing. The current cast might not be on the show after next year, so have fun while you’re watching Glee.

    • Joyce says:

      Well said, JD. Absolutely agree. And they have beautiful voices and harmonies across the board. Loved Landslide too!

  26. Kristina says:

    Fleetwood Mac, ugh. Enough said.

  27. Kate says:

    WOW i did not know this was originally Fleetwood Mac, i grew up with The Corrs’s cover in the 90;s, i just assumed it was there song, anyways loved this cover, already loved the song and of course KCheno and Matt’s voices just mesh together so well!

  28. Amy says:

    I too am more interested in the stories behind the glee clubbers’ faces than the song.

  29. Connie says:

    Love Fleetwood Mac and Stevie Nicks unique voice….I also love Glee’s music. There should not be comparisons between the original and the music done by Glee. This is a TV show that is fun and very entertaining. Enjoy it…that is what it is all about….just enjoy!

  30. Jasmine says:

    They sound great! I love Kristin/Matt, April/Will duets.

  31. M says:

    As amazing as it is getting to hear these two Broadway greats singing such an incredible song, the incredibly inappropriate behavior at the end ruined it for me. I’m pretty sure the Glee club knows every single dirty detail (and rumor) about their teacher’s love life by now, considering he’s always heating it up with his various love interests right in front of them!

  32. Jess says:

    I enjoyed this version. People, get over the fact that the Glee jams are not exactly like the originals. That’s the point. If you want to hear Stevie Nicks, go pop in your Fleetwood Mac album and call it a day. Otherwise, enjoy Glee for what it is– a fresh, fun take on classic (AND new) songs.

  33. Brandie King says:

    I haven’t listened to any of the other songs from this episode, but thoroughly enjoyed this one. I do wonder something about the posters that are doing nothing but bashing Glee though…if you dislike it so much, why don’t you just go right ahead and stop watching it? You won’t hurt the feelings of anybody who enjoys the show and, believe me, there are enough people watching that you won’t hurt the producers’ or actors’ feelings either.

  34. Jess says:

    So true, Brandie.

  35. SchuesterFan says:

    Some people on here mentioned that Glee has done Beatles covers. I only remember “I Want To Hold Your Hand” and “Blackbird”, both sung by Kurt. Have there been any others?

  36. tin says:

    I think it’s “nice”. I am not into fleetwood mac or any other 70’s bands and I can’t see them as being cool no matter how hard these producers push them. Can we get back to good songs or at least fun songs.

  37. Informantxgirl says:

    WHY IS EVERYONE USING THE BRITISH SPELLING OF ‘RUMORS’? Is this some kind of Royal Wedding backlash???

    • MoxieSue says:

      No. Rumours is the name of a Fleetwood Mac album, and the whole episode is Fleetwood Mac themed.

  38. rico says:

    I agree with Comment by Kimberly – May 2, 2011 01:29 PM PDT stop trying to produce the show and enjoy the music when romers came out the dj’s played it everyother song. Drove me crazy! But now it just brings back great memeories thats what music does, and glee does a great job of it. By the way has any one sugersted Sue’s sister as the death?

  39. MoxieSue says:

    Kristen Chenowith was fantastic! Matthew Morrison, not so much.

  40. StorytellerGal says:

    I’m just SO HAPPY THAT KRISTIN IS BACK! So much better (and funnier) than Gweneth.

  41. Lana says:

    I love that Glee does covers of classic rock and pop. I think those actually tend to be the best episodes. The only cover they did that I thought was weak was the Billy Joel cover, but otherwise they have amazing remakes. I especially loved Kurt’s version of I Wanna Hold Your Hand and the Puck/Artie version of One Love. When they do too much Lady Gaga and the like I tend to stop watching. I agree with some of the comments above- these covers are not meant to be a replica of the original, but thier own version of the song. People are way to sensitive about remakes of films/books and covers of songs. This just means more people will go and explore the originals.

  42. Sensai EyeBal says:

    Honestly, I’m a big fan of Fleetwood Mac, so when i heard they were doing songs from their album, I was like, “ok, lets se how this goes”. I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!! OMG people should not keep comparing Glee to the original because honestly, They might be the same Lyrics and tune, but at the same time, its completly different! I love both versions of ALL the songs, and i think glee should keep on the same track.
    PS- Anyone who didn’t Like landslide, it’s because it’s different, and thats not bad. You just need to stop comparing it, and enjoy glee for what it is.

  43. Sensai EyeBal says:

    Also, i agree with Lana… just sayin

  44. CJ says:

    Dang that woman is HOT!
