Album: Glee: The Music, Dance Party and Glee: The Music, The Complete Season Two
Released: February 22, 2011
By: Ke$ha
Sung by: Brittany with New Directions
Solos: Brittany
Place: William McKinley High School Gymnasium
Episode: Blame It on the Alcohol

Tik Tok by Ke$ha is featured in Blame It on the Alcohol, the fourteenth episode of Season Two. It was sung by Brittany with Artie, Mercedes, and the New Directions singing backup vocals.

The New Directions were asked by Principal Figgins to perform a song at the assembly for Alcohol-awareness-week. The New Directions performed this song while being hungover after a party the previous Saturday night, and after drinking Rachel's "mixed drink". Before the performance each one of them drinks the mixture. During the song, Brittany tells Rachel that she is feeling sick. Rachel responds by encouraging her to "power through it".

Unfortunately, Brittany throws up on Rachel at the end of the song while on stage, which is followed by Santana also throwing up. Principal Figgins later credits the "special effects" during this performance for the fact that no McKinley students showed up to school intoxicated the day following the assembly and gives the New Directions prizes.

Lyrics

Brittany:
Wake up in the morning, feelin' like P. Diddy (Artie: Hey, what up girl?)

Reception

Morris as Brittany was lauded for her performance in "Tik Tok", which Bulter called the "performance of the night" and praised her "mad dance skills and awesome vocals". Reiter wrote that Brittany "owned that rendition", and CNN's Lisa Respers France gave "kudos to Brittany for her awesome performance". Benigno gave the song an "A−", noted that Morris has a better voice than the original artist, Kesha, and the rendition was a case of "a bunch of really talented kids making a simple song better". Futterman praised the "dance-centered performance", but said she wished Rachel or Mercedes had sung lead. VanDerWerff "really liked" Morris on the number, but said he "didn't buy" that it was the song selected for the assembly. Source

Trivia

  • In order to perform the vomiting effects, the actors wore plastic tubes which were connected to a liquid dispensing container. One was taped to the side of Heather Morris' cheek and another one on Naya Rivera's hand.
  • First of the two Ke$ha songs featured on Glee, the second one being Dinosaur which one was also sung by Brittany.
  • At the end of this song, after the glee club throws up, Brittany says "Everybody drink responsibly" to raise the alcohol awareness and pull off the scam that they actually drank before performing Tik Tok.
  • Second McKinley Assembly Pep Rally at the beginning of the year that ends in a disaster or bad performance with Brittany singing lead. The first is Toxic in the episode Britney/Brittany. Sue hits the fire drill and the student body has a large riot as they rush to the emergency exits. The third is Gimme More in the episode, Britney 2.0, when Brittany lip syncs and the New Directions are booed off for the bad performance.
