Last month Glee made a triumphant return with the primetime premiere of its fourth season gaining the time slot’s highest audience rating with over 7.4 million viewers. Following the challenges of the current Glee club alongside the post-grad lives of Rachel and Kurt in New York City, the season kicked off with classic performances such as Adele’s “Chasing Pavements,” Billy Joel’s “New York State of Mind” and this summer’s pop anthem Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe.” The excitement increases this season with Hollywood superstars Kate Hudson and Sarah Jessica Parker guest starring, playing Rachel’s dance teacher and Kurt’s boss respectively.
From the anthem hit “Don’t Stop Believin'” to the pop phenomenon “Teenage Dream” to the widely praised mash-up of Adele’s “Rumour Has It” and “Someone Like You,” Glee has sold more than 48 million songs and over 12 million albums worldwide. Glee scored three consecutive #1 releases with Glee: The Music, The Power of Madonna, Glee: The Music, Volume 3 Showstoppers, and Glee: The Music, Journey To Regionals.
