Had you any idea that the show, which 20th Century Fox Television chairman Dana Walden hailed as “truly a phenomenon,” would have had SO may musical numbers in it?
The 300th song was Someone Like You, made famous by British pop singer Adele but performed in fine style for Glee season 3 by Amber Riley, Naya Rivera and Heather Morris. Viewers will get to see the number on the November 15 episode.
“This milestone is almost overshadowed by the fact that Glee has now sold more than 35 million downloads and has more Billboard-topping hits than James Brown, Elvis Presley and the Beatles – basically more than any musical act in history,” Walden said.
The show has also sold over 11 million albums worldwide.
When you look at it that way, Glee has been a pretty amazing phenomenon, hasn’t it?
Walden was rightly proud and praised cast, choreographers and music producers for making Glee the huge success that it is. In fact, he said Glee is a “brand” now, like Fox TV also branded Family, The Simpsons and others.
Before presenting a large framed 300 print featuring the names of all 300 songs chronologically to the cast and creative team, Stringer teased the cast that had they been presented with discs every time they’d reached a milestone, they’d be able to build a house out of it and have enough wood and metal to build an entire gated city.
Glee’s 300th musical performance will be shown on the show’s November 15 episode.
