    I thought it was great hearing Jayma sing Toucha... I remember reading someplace that that was her audition song for Glee.

    Just FYI, Stamos played for The Beach Boys for many years and is a very talented/Multi-instrument musician.

    I would categorize myself as a fan of Rocky Horror. We went to the theater every week in HS that showed it and I dated the girl who played Magenta in front of the screen for a while. Magenta holds a special place for me she is my favorite character, Dianna Agron was a terrible Magenta, I think Santana was a better choice but would have liked to hear her sing. I think the combo of Brittany and Jenna were fine as Columbia.

    Did not get the whole scene with Emma singing, she did a good job but it was his rehearsal for Eddie shouldn't he have sang?

    I guess for the most part I just thought it was uneven. However I think Colfer as Riff Raff and Artie as Dr. Scott were perfect choices.

    There's no chance that they'll actually release a complete Rocky Horror Picture Show with the Glee cast, is there? I would actually buy it from iTunes if they did that.

    Probably not, but the full versions of the songs they did perform are up there now. Unfortunately, they're the bowdlerized versions, including the noted edits to "Touch-a" and "Sweet Transvestite."

    Stamos also had a decent run on Broadway as the Master of Ceremonies in Caberet. Not quiet the same as Frank-N-Furter, but as close as you can get.

    I have been waiting for John Stamos to throw down on Will since the day after last season's finale, when they announced him in the role.

    Sigh.

    I heart John Stamos. :)

    I knew one of the guys from the radio station was Barry Bostwick, but was the other guy Meatloaf? Wow, I absolutely did not recognize him!!!

    P. S. I know a lot of people like the Sue Sylvester character but frankly I find her very boring! I mean the ONLY thing she does is mean spirited. Yeah, she's got a soft spot for her sister and the special member of the cherios, but come on. EVERY thing else she does is evil and again, at least to me, the same old thing. And how dumb is Will? In this episode he reminded me of the Robinson family in Lost In Space where the evil Dr. Smith would constantly do bad things to them and then two minutes later they would trust him like he was their best friend. So here Sue says she wants to help Will and he falls for it hook line and sinker!!!

    The thing I found disturbing about that song is that I couldn't help thinking that if they actually performed the play, it would be Rachel singing it to Mr. Schu. That's just wrong.
    Will was rehearsing for the part of Rocky, not Eddie, and the whole reason he wanted to "rehearse" was to get close to Emma, not to actually practice his part.

    It's probably mean but I laughed so hard when Sue was talking to Meatloaf and Barry Bostwick and the looks on their faces when she said they threw toast at her and her sister when they went to the midnight showing!

    I loved the episode while not my favorite it was really good for a dedicated to one artist ie: Madonna and Brittany Episodes. I am not a purist when it comes to Glee because you have to take in account they are going to make the song work for the singer and the subject. You can not expect them to sing exactly the same as the original artist.

    RHPS is one of my favorites, when I heard the snippets of the Glee Cast singing I was a little disappointed with it but it was actually much better than I expected when I watched the show. I was sad about Quinn singing Magenta's part in Time Warp I don't think she was the right choice for that part. I think Kurt as Riff Raff was my favorite.

    All in all I think they did a great job with what they could work with. I would have loved to have seen John Stamos play Dr. Frank but that didn't work out.

    I am a big fan of the movie. I enjoyed all the songs last night except one, Sweet Transvestite. Nothing against Amber Riley, but it sounded so completely different when sung by a female. They couldn't find a Tim Curry clone somewhere?

    Yes, I was going to mention that. It was hilarious, and perfectly like Sue to take that personally.

    Also, whose lips and voice were used at the beginning?

    Interesting that Stamos' Hot Patootie isn't there.
    I'm assuming there's a rights/contract issue involved.

    I did enjoy this ep, but I agree that the stuff with Shue was worthless. They are making his character so creepy lately that I'm really starting to dislike him.

    :up:
    That was so funny!

    I was kinda disappointed that they didn't perform the entire show so that Sue could get her Emmy, but mostly so that they would have money to go to Nationals and we wouldn't have some other lame fund raiser later.

    I kind of thought it was Quinn - at least, it sounded like her. Speaking of Quinn, she was fine as Magenta on her few lines, but when she sang, she dropped the attitude/accent, which ruined it for me.

    And about the censorship of the songs, they explained it away by being the changes that would be made to perform it as a high school group to a high school audience, and not because it was airing on broadcast TV. Not sure if I totally buy it, but at least it was addressed.

    Most people attribute the singing to Santana, but you're right, it sounds a little like Quinn as well.
