'Glee': Darren Criss previews the new season


The new season of "Glee" premieres this week and Darren Criss who plays Blaine of the show. Billboard caught up with the actor during last week's Fashion Night Out where he teased the new season. Check out what he had to say about Blaine's new role in the school. 

The first episode of the Glee season is call "The New Rachel" and in promos we see that Blaine is one of the New Directions members vying for her leadership position.
Yeah! Blaine's like a meanie now. I don't know what really happened! I read the first script and I was like, "why's Blaine so feisty?" I think the writers were getting bored with Blaine being nice. We joke about Season 4 Tina too, she's really sassy. We're all vicious, maybe it's Senioritis, who knows. When we read the script I was like, "since when is Blaine really competitive?" But who knows, maybe Kurt's gone and the gloves are off.

Fans got a preview of some songs from the new season this week, and for the "Boys/Boyfriend" mashup you and Kevin McHale talked about how choreographer Zach Woodlee instructed you to act "boyband" for the performance. Any particular boyband inspirations?
We just jumped around, we just wanted to be silly and cheesy and stupid, so that's exactly what we did. There's like, cliches. I hope this one made it into it -- the hands in front of your face like "where did I go? There I am, I'm behind my hands." You can't see that on a recorder...

"Glee" premieres on Thursday, September 13 on Fox.
