Watch Darren Criss’ ‘Teenage Dream’ on ‘Glee’ (VIDEO)

Chris Colfer’s new buddy/potential love interest Darren Criss finally makes his much-anticipated Glee debut tomorrow night, playing charismatic a cappella singer Blaine in an episode titled “Never Been Kissed.”

There’s been much ado about whether or not Criss’s preppy, openly gay character will end up as Kurt’s boyfriend, but judging from the below video clip (c/o Zap2it) he becomes something of a teenage dream for Glee’s resident showman. Check out Darren belting out Katy Perry’s hit as a member of the Dalton Academy Warblers:

Gleeks, make your voice heard in the comments: do you think Blaine will be a good match for Kurt?
