The Dalton Academy Warblers debuted on Glee this season with a bang as their version of Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream” had the best first-week sales of any Glee track to date. Also featured on Glee: The Music presents The Warblers are two album exclusives, the much talked about opening performance of Barbra Streisand’s “What Kind of Fool” from the 2011 MusiCares Person of the Year gala and a never before heard rendition of Rod Stewart’s “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy?” (see below for full track listing).

I CANNOT WAIT!!! This will definitely be one of the best CD's from GLEE yet! There's definitely a reason why Blane and the Warblers' songs are selling nearly 1 million songs in a week!!! They're the main reason I watch Glee each week...

Ok this is definitely gonna be the best album eva! and i agree with whoever said they like the warblers better, so do i! <3333

Love the track list except for the fact that Teenage Dream was already on another CD. I will still buy this album though. The Warbler numbers are always good.

I may sound like a complete traitor for saying this...but I think I might like the Warbler's covers more than I like the New Directions covers! <3

i may just cry with joy.
