JORITV: Rent's "Take me or Leave Me" by Glee Versus Rent Manila Cast

I've been losing faith over FOX's Glee ever since it returned from the Christmas break.  I dunno, maybe the songs don't interest me at all or the story is beginning to become tiring and boring.  But the latest episode just show me a little glimmer of hope.  But before you throw rocks on me, I'm not talking about the Bieber fever.  What excites me is when Rachel (Lea Michelle) and Mercedes (Amber Riley) performs "Take me or Leave Me" from the broadway hit musical "Rent".  Watch the clip below.

The only difference with this version is Lea and Amber alternates more often on the song landing them on different parts.  I think on the last part Lea ends up on Joanne's parts while Amber is belts Maureen's lines.

Lea and Amber are so great on this production number and believe it or not we Filipinos can also do it and definitely much better.  Below is a clip from Rent Manila press conference with Mian Dimacali (Maureen) and Jen Villegas (Joanne) performing the same song.

Well ako sanay na ako sa musical na simple ang plot. Because most musical sa songs talaga humahatak ng spirit. Pero habang tumatagal di ko na feel yung mga music na ginagamit. They should use more broadway songs now. Dapat nag magkaroon sila ng Joanthan Larson tribute episode.
