For the Justin Bieber song, go here.

Somebody to Love by Queen is featured in The Rhodes Not Taken, the fifth episode of Season One. It is sung by all twelve members of New Directions for their second act at their Invitationals, after April is kicked out by Will because of her drunkenness before their first song and Rachel decides to rejoin after not liking being in the musical Cabaret by herself. She already knows the lyrics to the song and so Finn and the others agree to help her with the choreography. The song isn't performed onscreen in its entirety, but it is still featured entirely on Glee: The Music, Volume 1, featuring Artie in the missing verses. It is the first song in which all of the first twelve members perform together. In Sectionals, Quinn suggests this song to be used again as the closing song at Sectionals because it's a "crowd pleaser". That happens after the group's initial set-list is stolen by the opposing schools (with a helping hand from Sue); however, this song is not seen performed onscreen. The song is originally performed by Queen from their fifth studio album, A Day at the Races.

This song is featured on The Glee Karaoke App and is one of the three free songs from the show available upon downloading the app, along with You Keep Me Hangin' On and Rehab.

Reception

Zap2it's Liz Pardue praised what she called "a truly outstanding rendition" of Somebody to Love. Flandez deemed the performance of Somebody to Love the show's best number since Don't Stop Believin' debuted in the pilot episode. Mike Hale of the New York Times opined that The Rhodes Not Taken was "the best episode musically since the pilot," calling the performance of Somebody to Love "truly rousing". Reviewing the episode the day after it aired, Jarett Wieselman for the New York Post commented that he had already watched the performance of Somebody to Love fifteen times, and that it gave him goosebumps every time he watched it. The Los Angeles Times' Denise Martin also praised the performance of Somebody to Love, writing: "Love or hate Queen, when New Directions sings it, it's magical. And it's the first time since Dont Stop Believin' that I got goosebumps. Something about kids singing songs, raising all those arms, makes everyone—can't just be me!—giddy and hopeful. They're not as technically skilled as Vocal Adrenaline—yet—but that only makes their underdog story more real".

Trivia

  • It is the first number where all 12 of the members of New Directions perform together.
