By: Katy Perry

Episode: A Katy or A Gaga

Roar by Katy Perry is featured in A Katy or A Gaga, the fourth episode of Season Five. It is sung by the New Directions and Pamela Lansbury with solos from Dani, Elliott, Kitty, Rachel, Sam, Santana, Tina, and Unique.

Sue threatens the Glee Club once again, suspending everyone because of their costumes. Will and Sue's war continues but Will is sure that it's another war that he will win again and that she should be ready for their "roar." The band begins the music, Sue suspending the band as well. The New Directions sing and confront Sue in their costumes and chases her out as they progress with the performance throughout the hallways of McKinley. In the auditorium, the New Directions recreate Katy Perry's Roar video, the stage recreated into a jungle and the New Directions complete with costumes worn in the jungle. Will and Penny watch the Glee Club sing, dance and swing on vines across the stage. Back in New York, the Pamela Lansbury New York band surrounds the loft with their mics as they sing while Dani also plays guitar. The scene intersects between New York and Ohio as both sides perform and swing. Marley enters the auditorium and waves at a surprised Jake on stage in Ohio as Bree joins Marley. The final performance comes to an end with Will and Penny applauding.

Tina:
I used to bite my tongue and hold my breath
Scared to rock the boat and make a mess

I guess that I forgot I had a choice

I stood for nothing, so I fell for everything

Trivia

  • In the promo for this episode, a scene shows Elliott swinging like the others while singing. This scene didn't appear in the episode's performance.

Errors

  • When New Directions run into the jungle scene, Tina is running on the left whilst Kitty is running on the right, but when they get into position on stage and the camera angle has changed they have swapped places.
  • When Jake looks at Marley and Bree in the audience, Jacob Artist's tattoo can be seen unsticking.
