'Glee's' high and low notes: Amber Riley's Mercedes
Next Wednesday, December 9th, "Glee" will finish the first half of its inaugural season, not returning to our TVs until next April. To toast the freshman series before its extended hiatus, we're counting down the characters' high and low notes. On tap today? Mercedes Jones...
High Note: Hairography's "Imagine" performance
We all know Mercedes can blow. The girl's got pipes. And she's had several shining moments on the series to show them off. But her highest note in our book was during "Glee"'s recent "Hairography" episode when she briefly softened that star quality. A visiting choir, made up entirely of deaf students, was doing their rendition of "Imagine" for McKinley's kids and Mercedes stood up to join them in an impromptu collaboration. But instead of overpowering their performance with her spectacular talents, she toned it down, allowing the deaf choir to truly shine as she humbly sang beside them, showing her support. If you missed the moment, you can watch it below.
Low Note: Mercedes jacks up Kurt's automobile
The girl threw a rock through the windshield of Kurt's car because he wasn't interested in being her man. "Se-KUR-ity!" Mercedes has clearly got some anger and aggression issues -- not to mention being a bit clueless... the boy is into other boys, hello! -- But we'll forgive her. We got to watch her sing "I Bust The Windows Out" because of it, so it's all good.
Before The Fat Lady Sings: Kind of want to know a more about what makes Mercedes tick, maybe get friendly with her parents, have her chase a viable love interest... And if we could see a couple more showstoppers from her, that would be good too. A subdued Mercedes may have been her "highest note" so far, but seeing that once was plenty. The more opportunities she gets to let her light shine, the better.
