Best Glee Performances


The Top Ten

1 Teenage Dream - Blaine (Darren Criss)

The acoustic version of Teenage Dream never fails to make me happy. The song is like a comfort for me. So, good job Darren Criss!

I don't like the original song because I don't like Katy Perry but this version is amazing.

Blaine just rocks that song. I can't stop listening to it. That's when Blaine and Kurt first met and I'm a Klainer.

Klainers voted for this song so high? Lol, it's not the best performance 😂

2 Journey Medley - Glee Cast

The Journey Medley was fantastic! They choise some of the best Journey songs to perform, and the dancing was great too. The cast did a wonderful job that really lives up to the original songs.

Best song ever! Made my hair stand! :D

3 Empire State of Mind - Glee Cast
4 Listen - Sunshine Corazon (Charice)

Very great rendition and audition of Sunshine Corazon for McKinley Glee Club but thanks to Rachel, she just ruined everything. Laugh out loud - hatcher234

One of the best performances ever. - hatcher234

5 Somebody To Love - Glee Cast

Definitely the most orignal cover they've done. It gives me chills every time I listen to it.

6 Smooth Criminal - Sebastian Smythe and Santana Lopez

Sebastian and Santana unexpectedly had insanely good chemistry, add 2CELLOS and you have an amazing performance, this was by far my favourite performance, and not just because Grant Gustin is gorgeous.

So awesome that I could die!

I love this song
Go team santana!

7 Telephone - Sunshine and Rachel (Charice and Lea)

I'm sorry, fans of Sunshine, but Rachel is much better than her in that song. Probably because she has more confident or she is more competitive. Sunshine has a beautiful voice, but it's not grown up yet.

8 Valerie - Glee Cast UListen to Sample
9 Billionaire - Glee Boys (Chord, Kevin, Mark, Harry and Cory)
10 Don't Rain On My Parade - Rachel Berry

Love it! Her performance is so inspiring! NEEDS TO BE HIGHER ON THIS LIST!

With this performance, I just loved Lea's Michele voice.

Flawless performance. No words. Lea Michele totally rocks!

The Contenders

11 Sweet Caroline - Noah Puckerman (Mark Salling)

I'm pretty sure he was singing this song to Quinn. Like, pretty, pretty sure!

He sinds it better than billy joel

12 I Am Telling You I'm Not Going - Mercedes Jones (Amber Riley)

She shows so much power and emotion in her voice with this performance. How is this not #1?

Mercendes is a diva. She gives me chill every time she sings and only a few performers make me feel that way. She was AWESOME in that song. Her performance was very inspiring.


13 What I Did For Love - Rachel Berry (Lea Michele)


14 I Want to Hold Your Hand - Kurt Hummel

The best of Kurt Hummel. I love his voice.

15 Cough Syrup - Glee Cast

This is by Blaine not the glee cast

19 Hate On Me - Mercedes Jones (Amber Riley)

This performance reminds me of the old times of Glee. I really miss the friendship between Mercedes and Kurt. I'm happy Kurt is in New York and he's friend with such great people like Rachel and Santana, but Mercedes and Kurt were (for me) like one of the most inspiring friendship.

20 Don't Stop Believing - Glee Cast

Oh, come on! This song deserves the first place, it made me fall in love with this show from the very beginning. by the way it's surely the most important song of GLEE, it was perfomed FOUR times (punish me if I'm mistaken). Every perfomance of Don't Stop Believing is very touching and dramatic (sometimes it even makes me cry). I'm so disturbed thinking about these perfomances, that I can't even put my thoughts into shape. I'll just add that it's totally LEGENDARY

21 Defying Gravity - Glee Cast

First off, season 1 is of course the best season (in my opinion). Second, this performance is a duet of Kurt and Rachel when they auditioned for a part, the blend of their voices and the overall performance of both characters were really heartfelt (for Kurt's since he lost the part to Rachel).

I loved that performance because even though it's a duet, it seems like it's a solo.
