I actually searched for this version. Idina is amazing. Although, Lea is as overexposed as the Lady herself, she does a fantastic job (as always) blending and complementing Idina's alto. The tempo is schmalzy and jazzy, like Lady G sang in an acoustic version with piano (see youtube). Watching her performance in what I think was a sparse rehearsal space, without any of her full drag, made my respect level go up a notch for her actual musical talent. This duet is superior to the faster version in my opinion (obviously). Glee is for those who actually sing, have sung in choirs, or for those who wish they could. I hope the show inspires those who wish they could to join their community choir. You don't have to be as good as the Glee cast. Lady Gaga is an acquired taste, but there's a spot for everyone in the industry. For those of us who enjoy listening to good singing rather than a fast thumping beat,or if you just want to listen to something less aggressive for the moment, this is the preferred version.

I watched the episode of Glee where they went Gaga. Up until that point, I had no real knowledge as to who Lady Gaga was. Sure I had heard Paparazzi and other stuff of hers, but had no idea that those songs was performed by Lady Gaga. Pokerface, I didn't know.So when Rachel and her mum sang Pokerface around the piano, I thought they did some song from a broadway show that I had never known.
After the episode I googled Glee and Pokerface and was amazed to find that it was a Lady Gaga song. Sure, the Glee episode was mostly a tribute of sorts to the Lady, but the song Beth sure wasn't a Lady Gaga song, so I saw nothing wrong in me thinking that Pokerface wasn't either.
On the web, I found a link to a youtube recording of Lady Gaga performing an acoustic version of Pokerface. Much like how the Glee cast tackled the song - how ever I still liked the Glee version best. Then I found the official video by Lady Gaga for Pokerface and that's when Lady Gaga won my respect!I just love that Lady now. She is an amazing talent for staging, writing lyrics and performing.
To the cast of Glee I just have to say WELLDONE! Mission accomplished! You have succesfully paid tribute to an artist that should be remembered and known by as many as possible.
Can't wait to see Lady Gaga in concert!
And I would love for the cast of Glee to perform a musical song like "Wouldn't it be lovely" from My Fair lady or something else and transform it into a tune like Lady Gaga performs paparazzi, Pokerface or Bad Romance.

This version of Lady Gaga's song is amazing. I thought it was so well done and had to buy it. It actually made me like Lady Gaga's music more which I found kind of interesting.

There is no question that Lady Gaga has honestly been one of the most overexposed artists of the past few years. But when it has came down to the cast of Glee, they know how a to make a bad song, sound absolutely worse than before. That does come as no surprise with their cover of Lady Gag's Poker Face. I felt that there was not a hardhitting drive into the song. It really didn't seem to showcase a better or organic sound all their own. I think Lady Gaga wouldn't be impressed either. I also think the cast needs to find more original material than to just do covers all the time. That wouldn't be such a bad idea, or just another poker face being flushed down the toilet.
