Chris Colfer's gay character, Kurt Hummel, on the Fox musical-comedy Glee is paired up with Blaine, played by Darren Criss, in an upcoming cover of Hey Soul Sister.

The bullying storyline playing out on the second season of the hit show has Hummel running from McKinley High to join Blaine, an out and proud student, at the Dalton Academy.

Hummel is fleeing from his tormentor Dave Karofsky, played by Max Adler, after school officials decided against disciplining the bully. Karofsky – a closeted football player – threatened Hummel after kissing him in an earlier episode.

Hummel joins the school's rival glee club, the all-boys Warblers, who, lead by Blaine, perform a cover of Hey Soul Sister in an upcoming episode.

The performance suggests more than a friendship when Blaine beams at Hummel and sings, “I knew I wouldn't forget you, and so I went and let you blow my mind,” to the delight of Hummel. (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page.)

Criss' cover of Katy Perry's Teenage Dream is Glee's biggest hit yet.
