Glee vs. YouTube: Who Did ‘Born This Way’ Best?

Last night's Glee ended with a super-fly performance of Lady Gaga's "Born This Way," and it seems a little bit against the spirit of the song to make a competition out of it. But this bull never met a china shop it didn't love to pieces, so let's get to it: a chamber group, a spooky duo, a precocious banana, and more all duke it out with Glee this week to answer the question, who did "Born This Way" best?
