'Glee' to Cover Rebecca Black's 'Friday'
By AOL TV Editors Posted Apr 14th 2011 01:20PM
According to Vulture, the song will get the 'Glee' treatment from cast members Kevin McHale, Chord Overstreet and Mark Salling.
This isn't the first time 'Glee' has covered an uber-popular song. They have previously performed Cee Lo Green's 'Forget You,' a number of Lady Gaga's hits and later this season repeat guest star Gwyneth Paltrow will sing Adele's 'Turning Tables.'
The one difference? Those songs are by actual recording artists; 'Friday' is by a 13-year-old girl.
Black's 'Friday' video has been watched more than 100 million times. The subject of countless parody videos and national media attention, the song catapulted 13-year-old Black into a new stratosphere of Internet celebrity.
Is 'Glee' too late in jumping on the 'Friday' bandwagon? Should it be jumping on the 'Friday' train at all? Viral videos have a shelf-life of a week or two before they become stale, so it seems strange that a TV show with a long lead time would take such a risk.
