In anticipation of "Glee" upcoming holiday episode, two festive-themed music videos featuring the cast embracing the holiday spirit are revealed. One features a cover of Mariah Carey's classic "All I Want for Christmas Is You", and the other has a rendition of Bob Geldof-written "Do They Know It's Christmas?".
Mercedes (Amber Riley) leads the revamped tune of the Mariah song. She sings the song, while her school mates serve as backing vocalists while decorating the Christmas tree in their music room. Rachel (Lea Michele) and Finn (Cory Monteith) bring romantic vibes by locking lips under the mistletoe.
For the "Do They Know It's Christmas?" cover, the cast share the joy of sharing with others. It's opened by Finn before Mercedes, Rachel, Blaine (Darren Criss), Kurt (Chris Colfer), Artie (Kevin McHale), Puck (Mark Salling), Tina (Jenna Ushkowitz), and Santana (Naya Rivera) take over.
The two music videos are expected to be featured in "Extraordinary Merry Christmas" which airs December 13. It will see New Directions in dilemma as they are asked to perform at two different events - on the same day, at the same time. One of the gigs might be an offer to appear on TV, while the other might be a small community gathering previewed in "Do They Know It's Christmas?" music video.
"Glee" will donate 100% of the net monies from the sales of its version of "Do They Know It's Christmas?", which was popularized by Band Aid in 1984, to The Band Aid Trust. Due to the charity effort, the TV series is applauded by Bono and Sting.
