Nothing screams “lesbian solidarity anthem” like “I Kissed a Girl,” so it’s no surprise that Fox’s Glee chose to cover Katy Perry’s sapphic smash for Santana’s big coming out episode (airing this Tuesday at 8/7c).
What is surprising is how fresh the ubiquitous tune comes off in this context. Maybe it’s the fact that the ladies of New Directions (and the Troubletones) appear to be having such a blast with the material. Or perhaps it’s the hilarious reaction shots from the all-male peanut gallery.
Whatever it is, it works.
