Glee is a musical comedy-drama series that has become popular all around North America. The show focuses on the lives of teenagers participating in their school's glee club, New Directions.
Adele covers Edit
Every episode of the show includes the characters performing various popular songs. Throughout the show's six seasons, the cast members covered Adele songs on six different occasions. Their most notable cover was the "Someone Like You"/"Rumour Has It" mashup, which proved to be one of the show's most successful songs.
|"Turning Tables"||"A Night of Neglect" (2x17)||Gwyneth Paltrow|
|"Rolling in the Deep"||"Prom Queen" (2x20)||Lea Michele, Jonathan Groff|
|"Someone Like You"/"Rumour Has It"||"Mash Off" (3x06)||Naya Rivera, Amber Riley, Heather Morris|
|"Chasing Pavements"||"The New Rachel" (4x01)||Melissa Benoist (with Glee Cast)|
|"Make You Feel My Love"||"The Quarterback" (5x03)||Lea Michele|
- Gwyneth Paltrow's version of "Turning Tables" helped the song earn success on the charts and has helped it to be chosen as the fifth and final single from 21.
- Lea Michele and Jonathan Groff performed John Legend's acapella version of "Rolling in the Deep".
- In the season three episode "Mash Off," there is a performance of a mashup of two of Adele's songs ("Someone Like You" and "Rumour Has It"). The choice to perform these two songs may have also helped "Rumour Has It" be chosen as the fourth single from 21. The performance was also incredibly popular, especially being that it was Glee's 300th performance.
- When Glee was renewed for a fourth season "Chasing Pavements" became the first group number on the season.
- In a promo for a season five episode titled "The Quarterback" (an episode dedicated to the death of Cory Monteith) it was shown the character of Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) singing "Make You Feel My Love." The song was originally written and recorded by Bob Dylan, but Adele's version of the song was used. This was the second time Lea Michele performed an Adele song on the show, the first being in the episode "Prom Queen."
