Darren Criss' "Teenage Dream" Cover On 'Glee' Turned Out To Be Pretty Major

That cover of Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream" that was performed by Darren Criss (aka "Blaine") on Glee last week didn't just have the gays fizzing with excitement. (Though, admittedly, I fizzed.) Billboard reports that the a cappella rendition had the best one-week sales ever for a single from the show after racking up 214,000 paid downloads. (That beats previous record holder "Don't Stop Believing" from the series pilot episode.)

With little to no radio play, I find it hard to believe this version of "Teenage Dream" will debut at #1 on the Hot 100 tomorrow. But at least Criss is now signed as a full-time regular Glee cast member.

Too bad last night's episode was snooze central.
