Speaking of the well-known song from the movie Frozen, it seems that people really can’t let it go. As the final season of Glee kicked off Friday night, Lea Michele did an impressive cover of one of the most iconic songs of recent times, “Let It Go.”
As the popular series, Glee, started its final run on Fox Friday, Michele blasted out Frozen‘s “Let It Go,” a rather appropriate song considering the drop in popularity of the show. According to the Atlantic apparently a clip will also appear on the next episode of American Idol.
As USA Today notes, Michele definitely nailed the song, as she goes through an emotional experience on the first show of the season. Her character, Rachel Berry, has returned to Lima, Ohio, and is trying to get the glee club going at McKinley High School after it was disbanded by Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch). The song ended the first hour of an emotional two-part premiere, “Loser Like Me,” and has a lot of significance because Idina Menzel, singer of the original version of “Let It Go,” played Rachel’s mother on Glee.
While many will be sad to see the show go, apparently the cast and writers are just not feeling inspired to continue. With rumors spreading of a feud between Michele and Naya Rivera along with several cast members leaving, just to return for uninspired guest spots, their hearts are just not in it anymore.
The Atlantic reports that, speaking of the series, exhaustion has pretty much made it necessary to literally “let it go,” and the final season will see the number of episodes cut down to 13, with not much creative thought to fill them.
While Michele’s rendition of the Frozen song “Let It Go” gives an emotional start to the season, the second hour, dubbed “Homecoming,” is set to feature virtually every original Glee cast member coming back to introduce the new kids.
Meanwhile, as reported on the Inquisitr, the original song has caused controversy during Menzel’s live performance in Times Square for Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, where fans criticized her handling of the high notes.
There was also a overly-cute video of an adorable toddler who went into a gleeful rave dance mode every time his sister’s Frozen Elsa doll sang the iconic song. To his parents’ huge amusement, the toddler’s sister kept pressing the doll’s belly button, and every time the little guy reacted in the same joyful way.
