'Glee': Madonna! Stevie Wonder! The top ten tribute episodes -- ranked! VIDEO

As anyone with even a passing familiarity with Glee — or iTunes charts — is aware, the show knows its way around a tribute episode, a.k.a. an episode where all of the music is from one artist or film. A ‘tribute episode’ also typically means there are seven or eight songs in the hour-long dramedy, as opposed to the usual standard of four. Great news for those of us who are watching the show for the karaoke! (I can’t be the only one dancing around my living room to Madonna or Lady Gaga Glee covers, right?)

Last night, Glee added Stevie Wonder to the diverse group of icons the show has celebrated, which got me thinking — where does Wonder fall among the Glee kids’ homages? Below, check out our rankings of the top ten tribute episodes Glee has undertaken in the past four seasons — along with some videos of the best performance from each musical-icon-filled hour.

Blaine-and-Kurt.jpg

We asked, and you answered, PopWatchers. More than 150,000 passionate EW.com readers voted in the final contest that resulted in Glee‘s Kurt Hummel and Blaine Anderson defeating Doctor Who‘s most beloved romantic pairing to be named your Greatest TV Couple of All Time. In celebration of Klaine, who bested Marshall and Lily, Buffy and Spike, and Carrie and Big on their way to the crown — see the entire bracket here — we’ve rounded up the most essential songs (plus a bonus non-Klaine duet that, if we left it out, you would certainly savage us).

Below, a timeless, groundbreaking TV love story in six songs.

'Glee' tackles school violence: How'd they do?

Last night’s Glee struck a nerve with viewers loyal and otherwise. But how could it not?

The episode addressed one of the most sensitive issues of recent memory, as McKinley High School was put under high alert after gunshots were fired in the school. Naturally, one can assume that this is the show’s way of tackling a topical subject that four months ago rose to the top of public consciousness in wake of the stomach-churning tragedy in Newtown, Conn. that left 20 children and six faculty dead.

Glee has never shied away from tackling heavy topics. In fact, episodes usually have more than one topic du jour. (Last night’s school shooting hour also included a “catfishing” storyline.) In the past, students have dealt with everything from homophobia, bullies, eating disorders, domestic abuse, and teen sex. The latter, actually drew some negative attention from a parent group.

But that’s what Glee does — it rocks the boat. And a quick glance at the comments on EW’s recap is evidence that this episode did exactly the same. READ FULL STORY

Love is on the air: Who is the Greatest TV Couple of All Time?

face-off-final.jpg

You know how CBS puts its NCAA basketball tournament to bed each year with a video montage set to “One Shining Moment”? I can’t help but envision the “One Shining Moment” for EW’s Who is the Greatest TV Couple of All Time? bracket game, reminding us of the loves lost during this often ruthless contest. There’s a shot of Sam and Diane getting engaged in court, there’s a clip of Marge getting all Officer and a Gentleman with Homer at the power plant, and there’s Ross in the rain staring at Rachel inside Central Perk. But who will get the final glorious we’re-number-one embrace? Will it be the Doctor and Rose, whose love knows no time or space boundaries in Doctor Who? Or Kurt and Blaine, whose trailblazing romance continues to give hope to those yearning for a happy forever-after on Glee? Both finalists are beloved by the passionate followings of the show and have the online support to prove it.

The polls are open now and will close late on Thursday night, before we crown the Greatest TV Couple of All Time on Friday. You can check out our full bracket here.

Love is on the air: Who is the greatest TV couple of all time? The Final Four

It was a stunner: Even President Obama likely had Ross and Rachel advancing to the Final Four in his Greatest TV Couple of All Time bracket. But that’s why they play the games… and the popularity contests that skew towards current favorites. Like Marshall and Lily of How I Met Your Mother, deserved darlings who upset the presumed No. 1 seed with a little help from their friends. The couple joins Kurt and Blaine from Glee, The Doctor and Rose from Doctor Who, and sentimental favorite Lucy and Ricky from I Love Lucy (who’ve made it this far without a grassroots social-media presence).

Check out our full bracket here and vote in the polls below to determine who will move on to the championship round. Now, the Final Four remaining couples battle it out below!

Marshall and Lily, How I Met Your Mother vs. Kurt and Blaine, Glee

We’ve watched Ted tell the story of his search for the would-be mother of his children for nearly eight seasons, but How I Met Your Mother‘s greatest couple actually didn’t have to search very hard for one another at all. Marshall and Lily’s tale began in college — she was an art freak and he loved, um, sandwiches. For both Ted and the audience, the couple quickly became the ideal for that right-in-front-of-your-face/call-just-to-say-I-love-you romance — the kind of love where you know the search is over.

'A Very Potter Senior Year': Darren Criss & Team StarKid's last Potter parody hits YouTube

In the beginning, God and Darren Criss created Harry Potter: The Musical, a madcap Harry Potter parody originally performed at the University of Michigan in 2009. The musical, cowritten by Matt Lang, Nick Lang, and Brian Holden and produced by StarKid Productions, arrived on YouTube that summer and quickly went viral, inspiring a 2010 sequel that helped to launch Criss into mainstream stardom. (Its popularity also inspired a name change meant to stave off the litigious Warner Bros; that’s why you now know the show as A Very Potter Musical.)

Potter‘s Harry soon joined the cast of Glee, and StarKid’s other members moved on to other projects as well. Still, though, the story didn’t seem quite finished — which is why a whole passel of StarKids (including Criss) reunited for a one-night-only performance of a second Potter sequel at Chicago’s LeakyCon convention last summer. Though the gang released the show’s cast recording in December, the full musical itself remained absent from YouTube… until this past Friday.
