Newcomer Darren Criss takes the lead on this male-fronted cover, throwing a very ‘Glee’-like twist on a song that some would assume the likes of Lea Michele or Dianna Agron would perform.
Criss is rumored to play Kurt’s new boyfriend on the show, so the song is likely in reference to the budding love between the two William McKinley High School students: “You make me feel like I’m living a teenage dream / The way you turn me on, I can’t sleep / Let’s run away and don’t ever look back / Don’t ever look back.”
Sounds like a hot romance is brewing! ‘Never Been Kissed’ also features covers of ‘One Love,’ and two mash-ups of ‘Stop! in the Name of Love’ and ‘Free Your Mind,’ as well as ‘Living on a Prayer’ and ‘Start Me Up.’
The new episode of ‘Glee’ airs on Fox on Nov. 9, but you can listen to the cast’s cover of ‘Teenage Dream’ right now on AOL Radio’s ‘Glee’ station.
