Chasing Pavements Glee Cast Version: Fail

I love Adele so much I always waited Glee to do covers. Loved Turning Tables and the Rumor Has It/Someone Like you Mash-up.

So imagine my ecstasy when I heard they are going to do Chasing Pavements. You see, Chasing Pavements is special to me although I do not quite get where the lyrics would want me to understand it. Chasing Pavements was the song I was listening to when I was literally chasing pavements when I ran away from home last year. When I heard Glee is doing it, I was so excited I think I panted while watching Season 4’s pilot.

Then, they gave me this.

To be fair, I’m liking Marley and I am all for Sam-Marley tandem. But this cover? No. She over-enunciated each words. It is as if she’s teaching a pronunciation lesson to the listeners. And that choreography, I should say I am disappointed. After Paradise by the Dashboard Light, I expect more from New Directions.

What do you think guys?
