Redirected from List of Mash-Ups performed on Glee

A Mash-up is a song or composition created by mixing two different pre-recorded songs, or two different versions of the same song. There are several methods for "song blending." The songs in mash-ups do not have to be by the same artist.

Mash-ups received special attention after the introduction of the concept and the creation of different song mixtures in the popular TV series, Glee. The series musical producer, Adam Anders, is responsible for composing the mash-ups that are performed on the show.

Season One

In Season One, nine mash-ups are performed.

The concept is first introduced and performed in this episode. Will defines a Mash-up as: "Taking two songs, and mashing them together to make an even richer explosion of musical expression."

The members of New Directions are split up in 2 teams: New Directions Girls and New Directions Boys, and they both have to create a mash-up and compete with the opposing team. The winner gets to choose a number to perform at Sectionals.

Following this premise, the girls perform a mash-up of Beyoncé's Halo and Katrina and the Waves' Walking on Sunshine. The boys perform a mash-up of Bon Jovi's It's My Life and Usher's Confessions Part II.
