Criss joined Glee this season and has become a fan favorite, with him and his glee club performing songs including Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream." That song debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Digital Songs chart and had the best first-week sales of any Glee single, with 214,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

The Warblers also have covered Train's "Hey, Soul Sister," Destiny's Child's "Bills, Bills, Bills," Robin Thicke's "When I Get You Alone" and Wings' "Silly Love Songs," which Criss performed on Live [watch the performance below]. They sing Neon Trees' "Animal" on this week's episode, airing Tuesday.

Last month, the cast of Glee broke the record for most charted songs by an act in the Hot 100's 52-year history with 113 hits, passing Elvis Presley.
