Darren Criss And The “Glee” Boys Strip Down For Gaga/Perry-Themed Episode


When the show returns next month, it will bring back the goodies in the form of the shirtless boys err men of McKinley High. Darren Criss (Blaine) and Chord Overstreet (Sam) will take on two sides of the ongoing Katy Perry/Lady Gaga battle that will likely have fans declaring a winner based on abs and pecs.

Criss’ Blaine takes on Katy Perry’s “Roar.”


Meanwhile, Overstreet’s Sam accepts the “Applause” of Lady Gaga.


But don’t forget about Artie (Kevin McHale). His character gets the best of both worlds.



Glee returns on Thursday, November 7th at 9 PM ET on Fox.

    Darren Criss is incredibly hot. I can’t take it

  • hotshot70

    I saw the very first episode of Glee, and never went back. It’s always been a ripoff of Fame. Maybe the series will end when a crazed gunman mows them down. (JK folks, I do not condone violence)

  • Fitz

    Seriously hotshot? So since we had FAME in 1985, no one can ever tell the story of kids who sing again?

  • Polaro

    @Fitz: LOL, yeah.

  • Larkin

    @Rockery: Blaine looks a bit of a fatty.

    Okay, not fat, but certainly not toned. He does look ‘normal’ though. Maybe that’s a good thing, but I’d rather see ripped.

  • Large Marge

    and I’m simply amazed that this is on FOX at all, but they only care about money and ad revenue.

    For those who watch fox, you are not their customers, you are their product.

    I want to see Chris Colfer shirtless. He’s never shirtless. It’s funny, this show is all gay,gay,gay,gay,gay but they’re always throwing shirtless straight men at you. And don’t even bother telling me about Blaine, we all know Darren Criss is straight.

  • yaoming

    @Larkin: I was thinking he was looking a little flabby, too… and totally hairless.

  • robco

    Did they make him wax? He’s not hairless.

    That being said, where is shirtless Harry Shum, Jr.?

  • averageguy40

    Love me some Sam and Ryder…but Blaine doesn’t offend me either. I wish I could be “fatty/flabby” like him.

  • Rockery


    I don’t need my guys to be ripped, he is so beautiful

  • LillianWoods

    Brooklyn recently got an almost new red Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG just by some part time working online with a lap-top… look at this now>>> smal.ly/3vwDi

  • QuintoLover

    Haven’t watched the show in a while, wanna get back into it but I’m not sure about the new characters. Also, WHY do they copy most of their songs’ visuals exactly? Ripping off Gaga’s weird @$$ Applause video is not interesting or cool at all (it wasn’t even when SHE did it originally). Can’t they do something more unique and innovative themselves? They’re already covering popular songs, can’t they develop their own identity?
