Thanksgiving has just passed but already "Glee" cast is ready to welcome Christmas. A new sneak peek at the upcoming "Previously Unaired Christmas" episode has landed online, giving a look at behind the scenes of the filming of a living Nativity Scene, which the New Directions kids audition for.
Becca Tobin's Kitty takes the role of Virgin Mary and she tackles a solo part of "Away in a Manger". Alex Newell's Unique is Angel Gabriel, Blake Jenner's Ryder is a shepherd and Jacob Artist's Jake apparently plays Joseph. Jenna Ushkowitz's Tina rocks fake mustache to portray one of the Three Wise Men, and Lauren Potter's Becky stands in for the face of Baby Jesus.
At the end of the video, some cast members sing a bit of classic holiday songs with a fun twist. Blake raps "Jingle Bells", Becca delivers a pitchy rendition of "O Holy Night" and Alex tries on opera style.
The Christmas episode will air Thursday, December 5 at 9/8c on FOX. Sue Sylvester will introduce the said outing as a Christmas special that FOX did not allow to air from last year. Songs from the episode, including "Here Comes Santa Claus", "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree", "Mary's Little Boy Child" and "The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don't Be Late)", have been made available for listening pleasure.
