'Glee' Final Season: Watch the First Full Performance
January can be a grim month. The fun of Christmas and New Year's Eve has passed, and all you've got are short days and cold nights with little to look forward to until spring — unless you're a Glee fan, of course.
The Fox show starts up again on Jan. 9 for its sixth and final season. The first full performance — featuring Glee favorites Darren Criss and Lea Michele — has the hit the Internet. Check it out below.
In the clip, the all-male group the Warblers perform a version of "Sing," the lead single from Ed Sheeran's Grammy-nominated x, which came out last June. ("Sing," produced by Pharrell, sounds like Sheeran's homage to Justified-era Justin Timberlake.)
Blane, played by Criss, returns this season as the coach of the Warblers. The group executes an impressively choreographed dance routine while performing "Sing" for Michele. It might make Sheeran jealous: The singer recently had to learn how to dance for his "Thinking Out Loud" video.
Catch new episodes of Glee starting on Jan. 9 at 8 p.m. on Fox.
