Episode: Dynamic Duets

Heroes by David Bowie is featured in Dynamic Duets, the seventh episode of Season Four. It is sung by Blaine and Sam.

After their locker scene together, Blaine gives Sam a chance to show him why he should stay at McKinley. In the auditorium, Sam plays the guitar and sings as the band plays. Blaine eventually throws himself into the music as he holds on to the microphone stand. He replaces Sam on the small platform.

As he sings Blaine, Sam, and the rest of the New Directions are heroes as they clean up a wall full of graffiti and repaint it. Sam and Blaine high-five each other in the school hallway in their superhero costumes in front of a Thanksgiving banner, selling Thanksgiving gifts, meaning that Blaine has chosen to stay at McKinley. New Directions have fun together as the song comes to an end. Afterwards, Sam asks Blaine if he's going to stay to which Blaine says there is one final thing to do as he passes a mask to Sam. They break into Dalton to retrieve the Nationals trophy together as their superheroes. 


I, I wish I could swim
Like the dolphins, like dolphins can swim
Though nothing, nothing will keep us together
We can beat them, for ever and ever
Oh, we can be heroes, just for one day

I, I will be king
And you, you will be queen
Though nothing will drive them away
We can be heroes, just for one day

Blaine and Sam:
We can be us, just for one day

I, I can remember (Blaine: I remember)
Standing by the wall (Blaine: By the wall)
And the guns shot above our heads (Blaine: Over our heads)
And we kissed as though nothing could fall (Blaine: Nothing could fall)

Blaine and Sam:
And the shame was on the other side
Oh we can beat them, for ever and ever
Then we could be heroes, just for one day
We can be heroes
We can be heroes
Just for one day
We can be heroes
We can be heroes
Just for one day


  • The song was covered by Chord and Darren when Darren toured in Nashville, Tennessee for his Listen Up! Tour.
  • This is Blaine and Sam's first duet ever on the show.
  • During the song, a wall is shown that has been graffiti-ed with many phrase including "Figgins likes to be milked like a cow". That phrase was mentioned in Britney 2.0, by Principal Figgins himself as he claimed it wasn't true.


  • At one point we can see Blaine's shoes changed from black to white.
