This may have been the simplest, most straightforward episode of Glee yet. In the 'A' plot, everyone seems psyched for Regionals -- until they learn that Sue is one of the judges. Since they're all certain she'll ensure that they neither win nor place, Will and the kids are convinced that Glee Club is over.
But a pep talk from Emma gives Will the motivation he needs to get the kids pumped up again. Well, Emma plus the magic of Steve Perry. Because Will decides the kids should perform a Journey medley at Regionals. And they put together a nice medley of "Faithfully," a mash-up of "Any Way You Want It" and "Lovin' Touchin' Squeezin'," and (of course) "Don't Stop Believin'." To counter that, Vocal Adrenaline performs "Bohemian Rhapsody." (And by "Vocal Adrenaline," I mean Jesse with a little back-up.) But New Direction's efforts are in vain, because the judges (Sue, newscaster Rod, Josh Groban and Olivia Newton-John) award first place to Vocal Adrenaline and second place to Aural Intensity.
