Wait, ‘Glee’ is Covering Rebecca Black?

Everyone’s favorite musical TV show has covered a lot of great artists. From Lady Gaga to Britney to Cee Lo, Glee is no stranger to putting their own unique spin on popular songs. But what exactly makes a song popular and where does one draw the line? Does a YouTube sensation with more than 100 million hits on her video constitute a singer worthy of a Glee cover?
Personally I don’t know what to think about this latest development. TV doesn’t always have the quickest turn around so part of me wonders if any of us will even remember who Rebecca Black is when the episode airs. And the fact that the Glee producers think she’ll be around long enough that we actually might? That’s a little bit scary. Does Glee covering this girl give her staying power? Will she be around for a while, or is Friday just another so bad it’s hilarious viral video that we’ll all forget about in a few weeks? I thought I knew the answer to that question but now I’m not so sure. (I’m also not so sure I want to know the answer anymore.)
But what about you girls? Do you think Rebecca Black will stick around or is she just another internet meme? Take our poll or leave us a comment and let us know!
