‘Glee’ Cast, ‘Without You’ – Song Review
The 'Glee' version, performed by Rachel (Lea Michele), nicely replaces the synths and programmed electronics of Guetta's hit with real instruments, starting with a piano intro, leading up to drums and strings during the more up-tempo sections.
The instruments give the song more of an emotional punch, especially when the powerful drums kick in as Rachel serenades Finn with the words, "I won't run, I won't fly / I will never make it by / Without you, without you / I can't rest, I can't fight / All I need is you and I / Without you, without you." The People's Choice Award winner impresses with her steady vocals.
