At the recent Grammy Awards, “Glee” contended for two awards: Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group (“Don’t Stop Believin’ (Regional Version)”) and Best Compilation Soundtrack Album (“Glee: The Music – Volume 1”). They lost the first bid to Train for “Hey, Soul Sister” and the second to “Crazy Heart.”
The “Glee” cast continues to make music. Among upcoming releases will be one from the Warblers, one of the main rivals of “Glee” club New Directions. Lead songbird Darren Criss revealed this news on Monday’s edition of “Live with Regis and Kelly.”
“Glee” recently shattered the record for entries on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. In just 20 months, the show has had 113 tunes make the cut, exceeding Elvis Presley‘s impressive record of 108 hits. This week, a tune from the TV show — a cover of Katy Perry‘s “Fireworks” — debuts at No. 34. Among the other acts “Glee” has bested are James Brown (91), Ray Charles (74), Aretha Franklin (73) and the Beatles (71). The cast of the TV musical comedy has recorded songs by all of these acts already.
