(NEW YORK) — Back in 1986, all the kids at prom were slow dancing to “Take My Breath Away,” a love ballad by the group Berlin that was featured in the Tom Cruise flick Top Gun. Well, some things never change, because on Tuesday’s episode of Glee, it’s prom night, and you’ll see everyone dancing to “Take My Breath Away,” as performed by Santana and Quinn.
But the episode, called “Prom-asauraus,” features plenty of current songs as well. Just as Glee covered The Wanted’s “Glad You Came” a couple months ago, they’re now taking on the hit song by that other British boy band. That’s right, New Directions is covering One Direction, as Mike, Rory, Sam, Joe and Artie sing “What Makes You Beautiful.”
Other songs featured include Fergie’s ballad “Big Girls Don’t Cry,” sung by Rachel and — oddly — Kurt and Blaine, as well as the Ke$ha song “Dinosaur,” sung by Brittany to reflect the fact that, as class president, she wants a dinosaur theme for the prom. Selena Gomez’s “Love You Like a Love Song,” sung by Santana and the Trouble Tones, completes the soundtrack for the episode.
In the episode, the kids campaign to be prom king and queen, while some of the outcasts organize a rival event. It airs Tuesday at 8 p.m. on Fox.
