23 Glee Cover Songs That Are Better Than The Original

Sometimes Glee does it better. #SorryNotSorry...

GLE_302-SC28_0809_hires2As you may or may not know everyone’s favorite musical dramedy, Glee, ends its six year run tonight with a two-hour series finale. Throughout its run the Glee gang has covered more than 700 hundred songs, mashed-up countless songs and even performed a few originals.
