glee 420 lights out songs fox 'Glee' songs: Preview 'We Will Rock You,' 'Everybody Hurts' and more music from 'Lights Out'

For its next installment, “Lights Out,” a power outage is going to force “Glee” to go acoustic. All of the kids at McKinley High get to try out their low-tech singing with such classics as Queen’s “We Will Rock You,” REM’s “Everybody Hurts” and more.

We even get to hear Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch) performing Miss Hannigan’s song from “Annie”! Check out that song and five more in this musical preview for “Lights Out.”

No matter how hard they try, the kids of New Directions aren’t exactly up to the standards set by Queen. But this is seriously an impressive attempt with “We Will Rock You.”

It’s too bad they didn’t think to segue into “We Are the Champions” like Queen did on the album. Oh well. This is still good.

Despite being fired and supposedly banned from the school, Sue is back for “Lights Out,” reportedly skulking behind the bleachers and ranting about “Little Girls” (from the musical, “Annie”).

Because this is an acoustic show, New Directions simply cannot skip Billy Joel’s “The Longest Time.” There pretty much is no way to **not do this other than acoustic.

Another oft-acoustic classic, The Righteous Brothers’ “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling,” gets a lovely performance from Sam (Chord Overstreet) and Ryder (Blake Jenner).

Ryder does get another song, but it’s probably not for a good reason. Only sadness can accompany “Everybody Hurts” by REM, after all.

Lest we forget the older “Glee” stars off in New York, there is also a single song, “At the Ballet” (from “A Chorus Line”), performed by Rachel (Lea Michele), Kurt (Chris Colfer), Santana (Naya Rivera) and the returning character, Isabelle Wright (Sarah Jessica Parker).

“American Idol” Season 11 runner-up Jessica Sanchez is expected on this episode as well, but “Glee” didn’t release any of her tunes ahead of time. Instead, we will have to wait until “Lights Out” airs on Thursday, April 25 at 9pm on FOX.
