Alright I can say confidently that this 2 hour special is going to have amazing music. I love everything so far especially Lea Michele. You're not Celine Dion but hey you are Lea Michele and that is just fine. :)

ND's deserve to win.

I really love all the music of this episode. Tongue Tied might actually be my favorite of all.

Do I hear Dianna and Jenna singing a verse together again in Tongue Tied :)? Can anyone else hear them?

Everything but Paradise. I rarely react this way but that was one I could barely stand to listen to.

I think that's Lea. I don't think Jenna sings on Tongue Tied.

This is the first competition setlist all season that I've actually liked! I seriously can't pick a favorite from these, they all sound so good.

One word about Lea's version of IACBTM is: WOW!!
Definitely a strong vocal performance by Lea.

Paradise is starting to be catchy. The start sounded something from Happy Days.

Tongue Tied gave me the same vibe to Up Up Up. Very similar. Kevin's voice, where have you been for the past 2-3 episodes?

HOLY F*CK STARSHIPS!! UNIQUE NEEDS TO BE IN ND'S NEXT SEASON.

He slays it.

ND's deserve to win but DAMN Alex sure gives them a run for their money. Just imagine a ND's with Alex, Jenna, Kevin, AND Lindsay.

OMG they could go to Internationals and take that sh*t home.

Yeah, I think that's Lea and Naya, although I often confuse Jenna and Naya's voices ...

"Paradise by the Dashboard Light" is better than I thought it would be, it's pretty good. Alex Newell is really really good!

Lea did an awesome job on the Celine song, wow.

ND were prepared this time around and it shows.

Edit: Why did they not let Alex win, he's amazing! No, I'm not over the fact that Lindsay and Alex didn't win. Bitter shrew

Starships on tumblr.

I just picture a ND's led by Kevin, Jenna, Lindsay, and Alex. NOW that is a monster right there.

I love Tongue Tied and Lea's solo. This is great. :wub:

There are no words to describe how happy I am to hear Chris's voice on Paradise. This one is a lot of fun. I'm in love with this set list. ND nailed this one, without a doubt.

General Schuester, your posts about New Directions as led by those four are my thoughts exactly. They would slay at competitions.

SO MUCH GOOD MUSIC.

I love all three of the ND numbers, especially PBTDL. (I heard Cory, Mark, Lea, Chris, Darren, Naya, and Amber...anyone else?) The end of the number especially, the big note plus Amber's belt is just :wub:

IACBTMN is also amazing, Lea really put herself into it, she nails everything.
Tongue Tied is good, but idk i can't tell the voices apart really well cause the chorus of the song is so shout-along-y

PW and Starships are both great, I like Starships better because I like how they sing during all of the break-down stuff. Hated Alex on TGP, love him here.

and WATC to top everything off....goddamn everything is coming together perfectly!!

That is not performed at the competition but I agree this is the best songlist of the series at least for competition.
