Ryan Murphy reveals another musical number than never made it to air
Glee creator and executive producer Ryan Murphy shared with fans a never-before-aired holiday scene between the show’s gay couple Kurt and Blaine.
It was a charming and romantic scene that ended up on the cutting room floor due to time constraints.
On Monday, Murphy shared another un-aired scene with Kurt (Chris Colfer) and Blaine (Darren Criss) with an entirely different dynamic. The couple, accompanied by fellow McKinley High glee club members, head over to Blaine’s former school, Dalton Academy, to check out the competition.
The scene has the academy’s glee club, called The Warblers, performing I Want You Back, in a musical number cut from last season’s Michael Jackson episode.
Singing lead is bad boy Sebastian Smythe (played by Grant Gustin) who has romantic designs on Blaine which is clear in the way he sings the song directly to him. Blaine tries not to react as stands by looking as if he is going to explode.
In an interview with Gay Star News in May, Gustin talked about playing the guy who is trying to break up Kurt and Blaine.
‘It’s a lot of fun,’ he said. ‘I’d like to think he’s very different than me! We have about the same face and that’s it. It’s very funny writing and it’s a great role. It’s really fun to be a part of the show.’
