Flashdance (What a Feeling) by Irene Cara is featured in Props, the twentieth episode of Season Three. It's the first duet sung by Rachel and Tina.

Tina asks Rachel that before Rachel graduates, if she would perform a duet with her. Flashdance (What A Feeling) is the closing/final performance in the episode Props. During the performance, it's as if, Rachel is passing on the New Directions leader baton for Tina. Rachel starts off in the auditorium as Tina comes in. They are later running through the empty school hallways together, singing and enjoying themselves and then, finishing off their first duet together in the New Directions school bus on the way to Nationals. In the bus, everyone is enjoying themselves and singing along. At the end of the performance, Will excitedly yells "LET'S GO TO NATIONALS!" as the kids cheer and the episode comes to an end.

ReceptionEdit

Futterman said of "Flashdance (What a Feeling)" that "there was a glimmer of old-school Glee in the performance, carefree underdog status that made me smile". Saskin and Chaney both found the performance lacking; the former wrote that "something about this version falls flat", and Chaney gave it a "B−" and said it "wasn't as soaring as it could have been", though "Rachel and Tina's bonding moment was sweet" and she liked "the way it took us from hour one into hour two and Nationals". Slezak and Strecker both gave the performance an "A−" Source

TriviaEdit
