My Top 10 Rachel Berry Duets: A Picspam  




10. Endless Love
I was trying to decide whether this or Need You Now should get the 10th spot. While I love me some Puckleberry, I just value this performance more for the humour.
I love everyone's voice overs in this! The teacher crush storyline was a crazy but fun subplot :P It's things like this that make me miss the old school Glee!




9. Defying Gravity
There's too many Rachel duets that I love equally xD I was trying to not be ~too biased and place all the Hummelberry duets in the top 5 lol




8. Happy Days Are Here Again/Get Happy
I remember this song didn't win me over right away, but sometimes they take a little longer to grow on me and then I end up adoring them. In fact, I actually love the live concert version of this a whole lot more than the episode version ;)




7. Maybe This Time
This may not be a popular choice for most people but omg, I think Lea and Cheno absolutely rocked this! I had recently been introduced to the Wicked fandom just before Glee first started, and I'd heard that Cheno would be guest starring in an upcoming episode, which was actually one of the main reasons I felt that I simply must continue watching the show! Needless to say, I was not disappointed ^_^
Also I have to share this old video right here because memories <3






6. Hello
The 'Jesse era' is probably my most favourite time of the series. I'd never seen Spring Awakening or anything before this episode, so all I really knew was that he was Lea's irl BFF and even I could still appreciate the chemistry between them during this scene ;D




5. I Feel Pretty/Unpretty
Moar Faberry friendship, plz!




4. Rolling in the Deep
This arrangement is just as epic as Adele's original!
I recommend you check out John Legend's version if you haven't already ;)






3. Take Me Or Leave Me
I love the turn this takes during the performance. Mercedes and Rachel start out as two divas set against each other, and they end up just playing around and having fun, so sweet!

2. I Dreamed A Dream
I wasn't a big fan of the original song, but I thought this performance was so powerful in relation to the storyline and vocals, and it still gives me chills whenever I listen to it!
Lea + Idina = perfection every time.




1. For Good
Bet you didn't see that one coming ;P
No further explanation necessary.

I love all of your season 1 choices. They really are some of my favorites the show has done, especially Maybe This Time and I Dreamed a Dream.

this is brilliant >_________< I'm nodding along to all these choices, and especially the reasons!! Ahh old school Glee... how I miss you :')

tbh all bias aside I agree Defying Gravity < For Good if we talk about duets, Kurt ripped it up with Defying Gravity, but it was a character piece, a character moment, so completely about him whereas For Good is just the best expression of Hummelberry there can be. Still on the fence about the Happy Days mash-up, though I know what you mean about songs growing on you

Maybe This Time is more a Cheno thing for me again, because she made the song about April in a way that no other song has been, but I love the visuals that the two of them brought together, the 'subtext' was epic, and any excuse to have these two sing is good enough for me lol. All-time favourite Glee song, I don't know why it's unpopular :O

the St. Berry duets ftw! Jonathon and Lea make chemistry happen and out of thin air, and that's a really hooking extra to two already amazing voices. Plus the Rolling in the Deep rendition was :') the background chorus aside, I'm debating whether it's more genius than the original Adele version

Take Me or Leave Me, I agree, I didn't see that one coming at all! Especially how they just went with Maureen's part, and Sue's plan backfiring on her in the sweetest way possible :3 irresistible!

I Dreamed a Dream... what she said -_- absolutely mte *_____*

I Feel Pretty/Unpretty imo was very little Rachel, but they structured it so cleverly! Rachel revisits Maria for the first time after season one, and Quinn was tailored for Unpretty!

all that aside, I also ♥♥♥ how you made the graphics, the texting, colours, and with the little bars above and below

Awesome choices! I love them! :D

(LMAO, your mood icon is fantastic. I actually remember that episode.)

I love your colouring- very pretty :D
I agree with you about all of these- especially Happy Days Are Here Again/Get Happy and Maybe This Time!

I love pretty much all those, but my most faves are: For Good, Take Me or Leave Me, I Feel Pretty/Unpretty, Maybe This Time, Defying Gravity and Happy Days Are Here Again/Get Happy. :)
