Considering Tuesday's (Nov. 8) episode of "Glee" sees the McKinley High drama club finally mount their Rachel-starring production of "West Side Story," it shouldn't be surprising that the majority of tunes from "The First Time" come from the iconicmusical.Lea Michele and Darren Criss' duet of "One Hand, One Heart" (as Rachel and Blaine playing Maria and Tony) is particularly lovely, as is their take on "Tonight." The duet between Santana (Naya Rivera) and Rachel on "A Boy Like That" is also completely acceptable. (Nothing special, right? Or are you hearing something we're not?)But even though those three songs are gorgeously sung, we're kind of obsessed with the cast's fake Puerto Rican accents on "America." ("A-merrr-eeee-caaaa" sounds so different coming from a bunch of white-bread Ohio high schoolers.) It's not the most rousing version of the song we've ever heard, but it's certainly the best one we'll hear on a primetime high school comedy."The First Time" also...
