Last year, Randy Newman won his third Emmy for the song “When I’m Gone” from the series finale of “Monk.” Two years ago, Hugh Jackman‘s show-stopping opening number from the Oscars took the prize. The previous two champs were both saucy songs — “I’m F***ing Matt Damon,” sung by Sarah Silverman to her beau Jimmy Kimmel on his late-night talker, and “Dick in a Box” which Justin Timberlake wowed with on “Saturday Night Live.”
Among the “Glee” goodies were the comic tunes “Trouty Mouth,” sung by Santana to Sam, and Puck’s performance of “Big Ass-Heart” for Lauren. And the self-involved Rachel debuted her ode to self entitled “Only Child.”
While those three tunes do not feature on the latest “Glee” soundtrack, a trio of others do. Mercedes was in full diva mode with “Hell to the No.” A heartbroken Rachel penned the plaintive ballad “Get It Right” which the group performed at regionals to much applause before launching into “Loser Like Me” which got a standing O.
