‘Clarity’ reaches pinnacle of mainstream status with cover on Glee season finale
It’s obvious at this point that dance music has reached commercial prosperity, but what would be considered the ultimate peak? A cameo on Glee. “Clarity, ” by Zedd featuring Foxes has been a ubiquitous festival and remix favorite of the season, reached #1 on the Billboard dance charts and even received some late night exposure on David Letterman. It must have caught the attention of Glee’s producers for they chose the cast to perform it on the pivotal season finale. The show choir version boasts a feverish Broadway-like intensity with a heavier bassline and lower vocal sung by American Idol runner up Jessica Sanchez. The exposure has undoubtedly opened up the world of dance music up to an entirely new audience who will only be craving more. In fact, Zedd’s original version broke the Top 25 American mainstream iTunes chart over the weekend. Click here to watch Zedd play piano while Jessica sings an acoustic version.
