Released: November 16, 2010
By: Cast of Singin' in the Rain/Rihanna featuring Jay-Z

Place: The April Rhodes Civic Pavilion
Episode: The Substitute

Singing in the Rain/Umbrella from Singin' in the Rain/Rihanna featuring Jay-Z is a mash-up featured in The Substitute, the seventh episode of Season Two. It is sung by Holly and Will with the New Directions. Artie is the only New Directions member with a solo. 

At the end of the episode, Will announces that the Glee Club will perform the song Singin' in the Rain from the musical Singin' in the Rain. Because the song is almost 50 years old, the club is displeased as they were hoping to sing more modern songs. Will goes to Holly and asks her what he can do to make the song more modern for the kids. They decide to mash it up with Rihanna's Umbrella.

Trivia

  • It took 727 people to clean up the water used in the performance.
  • The outfits for Holly and the girls — black trousers and buttoned-up raincoats — were inspired by Rihanna's "Umbrella." Will and the boys were dressed in costumes inspired by the 1952 film Singin' in the Rain (though from the song "Good Mornin," not "Singing in the Rain" itself): they wore white shirts, vests, and black hats. In the group scenes, every dancer had a black umbrella, while a yellow umbrella was used in the solo scenes for Will and Holly.
  • Singing in the Rain was mentioned by Kurt in the episode Duets, the fourth episode of Season Two, during his talk with Sam.
  • Matthew Morrison says this was one of the hardest numbers to film.

Errors

  • After introducing the song, Artie heads towards the back of the stage. He is seen heading backwards at three different points.
  • During the first verse from "Singing in the Rain," Finn initially heads offstage. In the middle of the verse, he suddenly reappears.
