The “Glee” cast has recently broken the record set by Elvis Presley for the most single entries. The cast has six new songs that are to be released on the singles chart this week, raising their number to 113 entries on the Hot 100. It is incredible that show is less than two years old.
The King of Rock and Roll had 108 singles listed on the chart, which was started in 1958. Presley’s career began around two years before the chart’s inception.
“Glee,” the Fox show that won an Emmy, features a group of unusual (or perhaps, highly usual) high school students in a choir. The show produces five or six covers versions of songs from all genres in each episode. Guest stars such as Britney Spears, Broadway singers Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth have also made appearances throughout the show.
In October, the Glee cast passed the 71 Billboard Hot 100 entries of the Beatles. Other marks it has passed include those set by James Brown, Ray Charles and Aretha Franklin.
