Have you seen Glee
yet? It's absolutely delicious - a big gooey chocolate fudge cake of a musical TV series balanced by a raspberry coulis of tart comedy. Thanks to a combination of keenness, chutzpah and sheer likeability, its cast seem to be able to tackle anything - from Queen ('Somebody To Love') to Kanye ('Gold Digger'), Wicked
('Defying Gravity') to Winehouse ('Rehab') - and carry it off.
However, their calling card is undoubtedly their cover of 'Don't Stop Believin', originally a hit for US arena rockers Journey back in 1981. The Glee
version is bright, bouncy and almost ridiculously big-hearted, featuring "da-da-da" backing vocals, lashings of brass, a shamelessly cheesy guitar solo and a powerhouse vocal performance from Lea Michele. Quite frankly, if it doesn't make you grin from ear to ear, you need to lay off the Botox.> Click here to read our recent interview with Glee star Amber Riley
