Focusing on the Beatles experimental years involving musical risks, the New Directions went forth with their second-part tribute to the greatest band in the world. “Tina in the Sky with Diamonds” aired Thursday night on “Glee.” It featured abundant storylines with lesser songs than in last week’s premiere. Once again the Beatle tunes complimented each musical segment brilliantly. Demi Lovato guest starred as a waitress working at the same diner with Rachel (Lea Michele) and Santana (Naya Rivera). “Here Comes The Sun” brought Santana and Demi closer together as lovebirds.
Sam (Chord Overstreet) is smitten with the school nurse, since Principal Sue Sylvester ordered all students, especially the Glee Club, to get vaccinated. George Harrison’s “Something” attracts Sam and the nurse like no other lover. In the “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’s” lively performance, it came complete with Beatles neon-colored satin costumes. This was the perfect introduction for students at the McKinley High prom. Tina (Jenna Ushkowitz) was nominated and then selected as Prom Queen, except for one moment reminiscent from a scene in the horror film ‘Carrie.”
The New Directions come to console her afterwards with “Hey Jude.” Tina is then rejuvenated with a new attitude, while accepting her crown later on. In the finale Rachel receives glorious news of her Broadway audition, interspersed with the New Directions closing out a beautiful rendition of “Let It Be” that had Will clapping.
In exact order, the songs featured in part-two of The Beatles tribute titled Tina in the Sky with Diamonds:
- Get Back
- Here Comes The Sun
- Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
- Hey Jude
- Let It Be
Next week’s "Glee" episode on FOX is bound to be a massive tear-jerker with the memoriam to Finn Hudson titled “Farewell to Finn.”
