'Glee' song preview: Darren Criss is a 'Teenage Dream'

Glee-never-been-kissed

It’s that time of the week when we hear snippets of the songs from the next episode of Glee and pretend we can tell which one will be the best. Listen below to the tracks from the "Never Been Kissed" episode. Per Fox, "After Finn and Sam find an unconventional way of controlling their urges, a few glee club members pick up on the strategy and start using it too. But when Coach Beiste gets wind of what they are up to, the glee club has some explaining to do." This involves two mashups: The boys (pictured, looking Motown-ready) do the Supremes’ "Stop! In the Name of the Love" with En Vogue’s "Free Your Mind," while the girls get Bon Jovi’s "Livin’ on a Prayer" and the Rolling Stones’ "Start Me Up." My thoughts: "Free Your Mind" will always be a ringer, and even though I love Bon Jovi, I’m now more excited to hear Mercedes take the lead on the Stones. New cast member Darren Criss (as Blaine, a gay student on the rival Dalton Academy Warblers) makes his first appearance to sing lead on a catchy rendition of Katy Perry’s "Teenage Dream," while Puck and Artie’s "friendship" results in a duet of Bob Marley’s "One Love (People Get Ready)."
