Oh. Hey there, New Direction boys. What’s that? You want to dress up in dapper black suits and serenade us — okay, fine, Tina — with a fun Beatles tune? We don’t mind if you do!
During Glee's September 26’s Beatles-themed Season 5 premiere, Blaine (Darren Criss),Sam (Chord Overstreet), Jake (Jacob Artist), and Ryder (Blake Jenner) performed “I Saw Here Standing There,” for all of the New Directions ladies, but with the particular goal of cheering up one Miss Tina Cohen-Chang (Jenna Ushkowitz).
Blaine started off the song with a solo — not too surprising, considering he sang in four of the eight songs included in this episode — and the rest of the gang quickly chimed in. The guys are all dressed up in their best Beatles attire, and they're even talking in British accents! In addition to the video of their performance, we also have two Instagram photos that give us a behind-the-scenes look at filming for the number, courtesy of Chord Overstreet.
The first photo shows the boys all dressed in their Beatles attire. Blaine’s playing the bass so we assume that he’s Paul McCartney. Ryder’s on drums so he must be Ringo Starr. That just leaves George Harrison and John Lennon, but we’re assuming that Sam is John... simply because he’s standing closer to the front, and John was better known that George.
Take a moment and watch the performance again. But if you get a bit dizzy and lightheaded, don’t say we didn’t warn you. Swooning seems like a natural response in this situation.
