The mash-up of Duran Duran's tracks is sung by Darren Criss and Matthew Bomer, while the cover of Christina Aguilera's song is performed solo by Criss.
In anticipation of "Glee" episode titled "Big Brother" that's going to air April 10, two songs from the upcoming outing are unleashed. One features Darren Criss and Matthew Bomer doing a mash-up, while the other is a solo performance by Criss.
Criss will team up with the "White Collar" actor in mashing up Duran Duran's songs "Hungry Like the Wolf" and "Rio". In the solo song, the actor who plays Blaine Anderson covers Christina Aguilera's hit single "Fighter".
For Bomer, singing Duran Duran's songs is like a dream come true, and "getting to perform it with someone as talented as Darren was the icing on the cake." He told THR, "I grew up sharing a room with my brother, and every night for a good solid year we'd listen to the tape .. I know I'm dating myself! .. of Duran Duran as we went to be."
Bomer guest stars in "Glee" as Blaine's on-screen brother narcissistic, Cooper, who is also a Hollywood actor. He returns to Lima for a visit, and gives an acting masterclass to New Directions. In addition to joining forces in Duran Duran's songs, they will also collaborate in Gotye's "Somebody That I Used to Know".
