The guest stars shook things up on Glee last night, where the second part of a two-part Beatles tribute showcased the gang covering classics such as “Let It Be” and “Hey Jude,” as well as introducing Dani (Demi Lovato) as a new love interest for Santana, and Penny (Broadway star Phoebe Strole) as Sam’s new crush.
Let’s get the high school plot out of the way first: Glee had an uphill challenge finding a new way to show prom, so instead of a wholly original idea, they borrowed from some of the most iconic. There was a Regina George-homaging neck brace girl (and on October 3rd!) as well as Tina fake-winning prom queen only to be covered in a bucket of
blood red slushies, courtesy of new McKinley High Mean Girl Bree (a.k.a Santana 2.0). Poor Tina. The show really kicked her around, from early in the hour with Sam saying he wished he was going to prom with someone else, to having Tina embrace her inner mean girl and dry up any sympathy viewers might have had for her.
