LISTEN: Darren Criss Covers Tears for Fears

By: Jase Peeples

It appears our mild-mannered boy Blaine is quickly becoming Glee’s aggressive alpha gay now that his BF Kurt is chasing the dream in NYC. (All that pent-up sexual energy has got to go somewhere, right?)

Not only has he already set his sights on becoming the glee club’s new golden boy, but in this Thursday’s new episode “Makeover” Blaine will challenge Brittany for student body president while he covers a much-loved 1986 classic tune.

"Blaine will be singing 'Everybody Wants to Rule the World,' the great Tears for Fears song which wraps up the student body election in a nice bow,” Darren Criss told The Hollywood Reporter. “He wants to rule the school and that's his song that articulates that."

Give the track a listen below and let us know if you think the Criss cover lives up to the original.
