According to reports (spoiler alert), tonight's episode depicts Kurt (Chris Colfer) being harassed by football players before taking a look at the New Directions' competition. There, he meets Blaine (Darren Criss), star of the glee club at the all-boys Dalton Academy.

In the episode, Blaine, who might become a potential love interest for Kurt, will teach him to be comfortable with his sexuality and not let bullying get him down.

Back at McKinley, another boys vs. girls musical role reversal takes place, with the boys singing a Supremes/En Vogue medley of "Stop! In the Name of Love/Free Your Mind" and the girls mashing up the Stones' "Start Me Up" and Bon Jovi's "Livin' On A Prayer."

Song Stories

“Hungry Like the Wolf”

Duran Duran | 1982

This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
