Don't Stop Believin' by Journey is featured in New Directions, the thirteenth episode of Season Five. It is sung by Will, the alumni and the New Directions, with solos from Artie, Blaine, Kurt, Rachel, Tina and Will. They re-did the song previously sung in Season One and Season Four. This version was done as part of the show's special hundredth episode.

As Will finishes watching the video the Glee Club has put together for his unborn child, Rachel appears out of the shadows to begin the song, joined soon after by Kurt and the rest of the original five members. As the song grows, the rest of the club and alumni (entering in the order in which they joined the club) join in and gesture for Will to join them. He sings a solo part, dances with Mike, Jake, Brittany and Kitty, and is carried by Jake, Sam and Ryder on their shoulders. He joins his students past and present in the last part of the song, and is mobbed by everyone in a huge group hug after it ends.  From the back of the auditorium, April and Holly watch with pride, their work now done.

Lyrics

Rachel:
Just a small town girl
Living in a lonely world
She took the midnight train
Going anywhere

Kurt:
Just a city boy
Born and raised in South Detroit
He took the midnight train
Going anywhere

Artie:
A singer in a smoky room
A smell of wine and cheap perfume

Artie and Rachel:
For a smile they can share the night
It goes on and on and on and on

Strangers, waiting
Up and down the boulevard
Their shadows
Searching in the night

Streetlight, people
Living just to find emotion
Hiding
Somewhere in the night

Will:
Working hard to get my fill
Everybody wants a thrill

Will with Blaine:
Paying anything to roll the dice
Just one more time

Tina:
Some will win

Tina with Blaine:
Some will lose
Some were born to sing the blues
And now the movie never ends

Blaine and Tina:
It goes on and on and on and on

Rachel with Blaine (Artie):
Strangers, waiting
Up and down the boulevard
Their shadows
Searching in the night (In the night)

Streetlight, people (People)
Living just to find emotion
Hiding (Hiding)
Somewhere (with Artie: in the night)

Rachel with Blaine, Alumni, New Directions and Will (Artie):
Don't stop believin' (No, woah)
Hold on to that feeling
(with Artie: Streetlight) (Yeah)
People, oh, oh, woah (Yeah, yeah)

Don't stop (Don't stop)
(with Artie: Believin')
Hold on to that feelin' (Hold on)
Streetlight

Artie and Rachel with Blaine, Alumni, New Directions and Will:
People, oh, oh, woah

Rachel with Alumni, New Directions, and Will:
Don't stop

Trivia

  • Rachel is the only character to be a soloist in every released version of this song.
  • This is the only version in which TinaWill, and Blaine have solo parts.
  • During Matthew's solo part, Naya can be seen raising her arm and accidentally hitting Darren in the head. The next shot we see her kissing his head apologetically.
  • During Kurt's solo part, Will briefly looks up at the ceiling as a tribute to Finn.
  • Mercedes is the only one from the original five members to not get a solo part in this version.
  • This is the only version of Don't Stop Believin' not to feature Finn in any way.
  • This is the second time the song has been performed in the April Rhodes Civic Pavilion.
  • This is the last song to feature Marley performing on the show.

Errors

  • When the five original members are on stage, Mercedes and Kurt are embracing and missing the choreography from behind. In the next scene from the front, the two of them are in sync with the group.
  • In the final chorus, Brittany is on Santana's left. However in the next frame, she is on the right.
  • After Quinn says goodbye to Mr. Schuester she can be seen passing Mike closer to Puck twice as the camera view changes.
