Gleeks unite! Regionals are right around the corner on Glee, and the New Directions have never been more determined to get to Nationals. The season finale should be full of drama: from Ryder finally getting a lead on his mysterious chat buddy to Brittany copping a new attitude from her M.I.T. trip, plenty will distract the singing students from their work onstage.

Here, get an exclusive first listen to a moment from the finale: the group's cover of Icona Pop's "I Love It." The cover maintains the original track's hard electro beat and dance-pop vocals, then throws in the show's signature harmonies and some impressive solos. We can only hope it serves them well on their road to Nationals.

Catch the season finale of Glee on Thursday, May 9th at 9 p.m. EST on Fox.

“Wake Up Everybody”

John Legend and the Roots | 2010

A Number One record by Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes in 1976 (a McFadden- and Whitehead-penned classic sung by Teddy Pendergrass) inspired the title and lead single from Wake Up!, John Legend's tribute album to message music. The more familiar strains of "Wake Up Everybody" also fit his agenda. "It basically sums up, in a very concise way, all the things we were thinking about when we were putting this record together in that it's about justice, doing the right thing and coming together to make the world a better place," he said. Vocalists Common and Melanie Fiona assist Legend on this mission to connect.
