    i think that Blaine should not have sung it with Chris. It should have been just the Warblers & Kurt in the lead. Blaine already took leads in "Raise your Glass" and "Misery". Otherwise, Blaine and Kurt should have done a duet without the Warblers in the background (like in "Baby it's cold Outside") i don't say they ruined it. I think they are purposefully made to lose this competition. This song is amazing. The original is also amazing. It's a good cover. When I heard glee was covering Hey Monday's Candles, i thought it would be Rachel & ND. LOL

    I like the glee cover of Candles but its not the best. I <3 haymonday aswell :) and I <3 glee so i am happy :D

    The beginning started out kind of bad, I absolutely love Chris as an actor but pop vocals are not his strong point. But once they got to the end and his and Darren's vocals started to blend well it was pretty enjoyable.

    i don't understand the dislike for this song. I thought it was beautiful. It was nice to hear Chris sing lead again, and Darren's harmonies were spot-on lovely. I was moved listening to this, and I know seeing it within the context of the scene next week will enhance my enjoyment even more.

    Ouch. I'm sorry, but Kurt's vocals kinda destroyed the song. I hope that it's SUPPOSED to be bad. Cuz otherwise I can't believe they would keep this.

    hehe oh yeah! You're right XD

  • Kenzie

    its meh..dont really like hey monday(team jersey) but the one thing that bothered me was well chris(kurt) was singing wayyyy too high and like i dont know..he just wasnt singing like he always does

    Unless they've put something in that scene, the bit at 2:20 is part of the original song. If you listen to it, Pink goes, "So raise your - aw, f**k! - so raise your glass." But they're obviously not going to have him swear.

  • bexxx89

    To all the people saying its bad...that's the point... I think something happens before they go on stage. In raise your glass, Blaine/Darren sings part of the chorus and then starts again at around 2:20. It sounds, to me, like he may have messed it up. They then sound even more nervous in this and that's probably because they know they're going to get beaten by New Directions.

  • Mikaela
