Come on girls, do you believe in love?
Cause I got something to say about it
And it goes something like this

Trivia

  • In the album booklet and on iTunes, Jonathan Groff is credited as a singer, even though it is obviously only sung by the girls.
  • Jenna Ushkowitz (Tina) isn't credited in the album booklet for this song.
  • This is the first time we hear Santana sing on screen, and the second time is also in this episode (Like a Virgin).
  • Brittany is the only girl in New Directions that doesn't have any solo lines in this song.

Errors

  • In the final lines of the song there is a jacket in front of the girls on the side angle, but it is gone when the camera switches back to the front view.
  • When the girls perform the song they are wearing tight corsets. When you look at Quinn, she has an almost perfectly flat stomach, even though in the scene before, she has a noticeable baby bump. But, in one picture, you can clearly see the baby bump pop under the corset.
