So last night, my better half and I were watching this TV show called glee (Jane Lynch is awesome!) and in this particular episode “Vitamin D”, the members of glee club split up into two teams guys vs. girls and performed mashups. Yeah, and they were pretty damn awesome. Pumped full of pseudoephedrine the boys performed It’s My Life/Confessions Part II (Bon Jovi vs. Usher) and it was pretty sweet. The girls, not willing to be out done by the boys, popped some pseudoephedrine and performed Halo/Walking on Sunshine (Beyonce vs. Katrina and the Waves) and it was just as awesome.
I can’t help but smile and laugh a little as the mashup scene is reaching a broader audience now more than ever. What was once this niche underground scene is really starting to grow. Part of me is a little hesitant, but another part is excited to see where this is going to go. Interestingly enough, you can buy these mashups performed on glee on itunes. Have a listen to the preview.
That being said, what do you think about mashups making there way into the mainstream like this? Leave a comment below!
