Round 3 of TVLine.com’s Glee All-Time Best Musical Number Bracket Tournament begins today, which means 16 of the most iconic performances from the show will do bloody battle until only eight competitors are left standing.
Entering the ring right now, Season 2’s buzziest cast additions — Darren Criss and Gwyneth Paltrow — go head-to-head in our Curator’s Choice division, while the one that started it all (“Don’t Stop Believing”) battles the breakthrough original track (“Loser Like Me”) in the New Directions’ Greatest Hits section.
Whittling the field down to eight quarterfinalists is going to be hard, but alas, it’s the only way to determine which song-and-dance interlude ranks at No. 1 in the two-season history of Fox’s smash high-school dramedy.
Every day around 4:00 p.m. ET over the next few weeks, we’ll launch a new set of bouts that will have you mentally humming your favorite Glee moments and anxiously wondering how in the heck you’re gonna decide between ’em. So make sure the right choice is made by heading down to our polls to vote for your favorites (Round 3 voting will be open for 48 hours), and hit the comments to justify your picks.
