'Glee': Rachel Berry's Barbra-vention -- another flash mob?

kurt-glee-sunset-boulevard.jpgWe feel kind of petty picking on "Glee" for going back to the flash mob well since the show is -- technically -- one big flash mob fest. But, in the strictest sense, this is ground the show already covered with Artie's season 1 "Safety Dance" flash mob. (And, hey, if we're splitting hairs -- the show had already covered the Gaga ground, too, but whatever -- the episode was about as Gaga as "The Ed Sullivan Show.")

Anyhow, apparently all it takes to dissuade someone from cosmetic surgery is a "Barbra-vention." At least it works if you happen to be Rachel Berry ( Lea Michele), a massive Streisand fan.

Oh, and it also helps if you are surrounded by a group of caring friends who also happen to be Streisand fans and won't balk at dancing around the local mall to a techno-fied paen to the famously nosy singer.

In one of his characteristically uncharacteristic gestures, Puck ( Mark Salling) enlists the help of Kurt ( Chris Colfer) and some of the other New Directions gang to stage the flash mob for Rachel. And, like all good aversion therapy, it totally worked. Thanks to a mall full of Ohio teens getting jiggy about Barbra (and maybe because Finn told her she was beautiful just the way she is) Rachel decided own her nose.
