And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going from Dreamgirls is featured in Sectionals, the thirteenth episode of Season One. It is sung by Mercedes in the choir room as the New Directions finalize their ballad for their Sectionals setlist. 

Rachel initially wants to sing a ballad, but Mercedes demands a chance to sing. Emma, the faculty adviser for the Glee Club after Will was prohibited from being their coach, agrees to let Mercedes sing. Her rendition of this song gets an overwhelming response from the entire club, Rachel included, who concludes that Mercedes deserves the chance to sing it at Sectionals. However, at Sectionals, Jane Adams Academy performs this song because Sue leaked their set list to the other teams, and the New Directions cannot perform the song at sectionals without being blamed of copying them.

Lyrics

Mercedes:
And I am telling you
I'm not going
You're the best man
I'll ever know
There's no way I can ever go

No no there's no way
No no no way I'm livin' without you
I'm not livin' without you
I don't want to be free
I'm stayin'
I'm stayin'
And you and you
You're gonna love me
Yeah ohh
You're gonna love me

And I am telling you
I'm not going
Even though the rough times are showin'
There's just no way
There's no way

Were part of the same place
Were part of the same time
We both share the same blood
We both have the same mind

And time and time
We've had so much to share
No no no way

I'm not waking up tomorrow morning
And finding that there's nobody there
Darlin' there's no way
No no no way
I'm livin' without you
I'm not livin' without you
You see there's no way
There's no way

Tear down the mountain
Yell scream and shout
You can say what you want
I'm not walking out
Stomp on the rivers
Push, strike and kill
I'm not gonna leave you,
There's no way I will

And I am telling you
I'm not going
You're the best man
I'll ever know
There's no way I can ever ever go

No no there's no way
No no no way
I'm living without you
I'm not living without ya now
Living without ya
I don't want to be free

I'm stayin' I'm stayin'
And you and you and you
You're gonna love me
Ohhh

You're gonna love me
Yes you are
Yes you are
Yeah
Love me
Love me
Love me
Love me
You're gonna love me
