Surprise singing sensation Rebecca Black may have her share of critics, but don't count the cast of "Glee" among them. In fact, the students of McKinley High will be performing her viral song "Friday" on an upcoming episode of the Fox series.
Though Black's video features the teen heading out for a night on the town with her female pals, it won't be the "Glee" girls who'll be singing her song, reports Vulture. Instead, Artie (Kevin McHale), Sam (Chord Overstreet), and Puck (Mark Salling) will take on the tune about weekend partying and fun.
As Marquee previously reported, "Friday" is part of a $2,000 package Black's mother paid to Ark Music Factory, an L.A.-based production company for aspiring teen singers. The video, released on YouTube, has gone on to rack up more than 100 million hits — and just as many criticisms.
"Those hurtful comments really shocked me. At times, it feels like I'm being cyberbullied," says Black. "When I first saw all the nasty comments, I did cry ... I don't think I'm the worst singer, but I don't think I'm the best."
And with her song making it onto "Glee," it looks like the drama will end on a high note.
