Album: Glee Showstoppers

The cast of Glee

The style

Glee Showstoppers is the fourth album from the first series and gives you exactly what it promises - loads and loads of showstopping tunes.

It's an album of theatrical songs to belt out at top volume, along with some classic pop covers you'll either love or hate - there's no in between with Glee!

One big bonus is that there's plenty of choice on offer, so you're bound to find something to warble along to, whatever mood you're in!

The hits

The album showcases loads of different characters singing the leads so it sounds really fresh all the way through.

Physical, sung by Sue Sylvester and featuring Olivia Newton-John, is genius and guaranteed to put a smile on your face. Especially if you saw the episode the track featured in.

Bad Romance is a great group performance from the Glee-sters and as the final track on the album definitely leaves you wanting more.

Other highlights include, Total Eclipse of the Heart, Poker Face, Beth and Lady Is A Tramp, which is bound to get you on your feet.

The misses

If there was one song we could bin it would have to be April's version of Home. It just doesn't sound as good as the others.

Will you still be humming it next week?

There's pretty much something for everyone here, and there'll be at least a couple of tracks you find yourselves going back to again and again.

Will it make the charts?

Without a doubt! This is the best of the Glee albums so far.

It's a perfect mix of tracks to get you up and dancing, and power ballads to sing your heart out to. Love it!
