There are numbers on Glee where the theme or lyrics of a song performed by the cast are directly linked to the plot, and then there’s the other 95% of performances on Glee where someone sings a song just because it’s a Top 10 hit. Such is the case with the show’s cover of One Direction‘s “What Makes You Beautiful”, performed at McKinley High’s prom on the May 8 episode “Prom-asaurus.” You know one thing the video for 1D’s hit single didn’t have? Heather Morris in a teeny, tiny hat.

Other songs in the episode include Berlin‘s “Take My Breath Away”, Selena Gomez‘s “Love You Like A Love Song”, Fergie‘s “Big Girls Don’t Cry” and Ke$ha‘s Animal track “Dinosaur”, which is actually about older dudes inappropriately creeping on young women. Maybe someone is finally singing about Mr. Schuester?
