Listen: The 'Glee' cast gets in the holiday spirit with 'Last Christmas'
Black Friday's still not for a couple of days, but the cast from Glee has already gotten you your present: "Last Christmas."
The cast -- with Rachel (Lea Michele) leading, naturally -- is tackling the Wham! holiday classic for a good cause: a portion of the proceeds from the iTunes-only sale will go toward the Grammy Foundation, for music education.
This comes in advance of tonight's newest episode, "Hairography," which promises a show-down with a rival group. The songs that will be featured include cast versions of Beyonce’s “Bootylicious,” John Lennon’s “Imagine,” Cyndi Lauper’s “True Colors” and "a cast mash-up of 'Hair' from the musical and Beyonce’s 'Crazy in Love,'" according to a release from FOX/Columbia.
Check in with HitFix tomorrow for a recap of the episode; follow HitFix's Katie Hasty on Twitter to get updates when it's posted.
