Sue Sylvester introduces the episode as a Christmas special that FOX did not allow to air from last year. The New Directions audition for roles in McKinley’s living Nativity Scene. Meanwhile in New York, Rachel, Kurt and Santana work as Santa’s elves at a mall.
Blaine believes he has the best plan to win Nationals, but he doesn’t take the glee club’s criticism too well when the students accuse him of being too controlling. Over in New York, Kurt also runs into control issues when the band disagrees over the venue of their first official gig that Kurt booked. Meanwhile, Sue reveals the story behind her iconic tracksuit and gets in touch with her feminine side.
When Sue points out to an irate Will that the exclusion of any arts related career booths at McKinley’s Career Fair is simply indicative of the fact that “there’s no such thing as a career in the arts,” Will is forced to concede the fact that choosing to be an artist is a path fraught with uncertainty. He strives to teach the gleeks the power of perseverance by assigning them the music of the resilient Billy Joel. Blaine and Sam travel to New York ostensibly to look at potential colleges, but while Kurt is thrilled with the thought of Blaine joining him at NYADA, Blaine may have other thoughts on the subject. And when Sam tanks his interview at the only school offering the only scholarship he could qualify for, he makes a confession to Rachel, leading to a new world of opportunity for the former male stripper. Meanwhile, despite considerable resistance, Artie encourages Becky Jackson to look past the walls of McKinley for her future plans. And after being dumped by Marley, Jake embraces his reputation as a lothario, but regrets his decision when she agrees to date another guy.
When a video of Blaine twerking goes viral, an inspired Will seeks to harness the power of the dance of the hour in a bid to “edge up” New Directions’ “America’s Sweetheart” image at Nationals. When several of the kids express concern over their inability to perform the new booty-shaking dance, Mr. Schue enlists Jake and Kitty for a tutorial. When a morally offended Sue uses her position as acting principal of McKinley to try and put an end to the “sexually explicit excuse for a dance craze,” the gleeks stage a protest leading to some potentially serious fallout.In New York, Rachel feels the need to add a bit of rebellion to her life, so she convinces Kurt that they should get tattoos together. When things at the tattoo parlor don’t go quite as planned, a follow up visit leads Kurt to shake things up even more. Meanwhile, Unique struggles to find transgender equality in the bathrooms of McKinley High, and Marley learns that her boyfriend, Jake, has been cheating on her with Bree of the Cheerios.
The members of New Directions tackle their assignment of getting out of their comfort zones and determining whether they’re more like “Katy” (Perry) or (Lady) “Gaga.” Kurt holds auditions for his new band and must decide if he’ll let in the overly bold performer, Starchild. Meanwhile, Jake gets closer to Bree as he and Marley grow apart.
In the wake of Finn’s sudden death, former members of New Directions return to McKinley to remember their fallen friend. While a stoic Mr. Schue encourages all the gleeks to “memorialize him the way we do everything – by singing about it,” some of the kids find the exercise more cathartic than others. At the Hudson-Hummel home, Kurt, Burt and Carole sort through Finn’s belongings and what begins as a somber occasion blossoms into a poignant and much needed family moment. Meanwhile, Emma grows concerned when she believes Will is so busy taking care of others that he’s not allowing himself time to grieve; Santana struggles with using her “bitch” mask to hide her fond feelings for Finn, and has a run in with Bree, McKinley’s "New Santana"; and following a heart-to-heart with Coach Beiste, Puck honors Finn’s memory by making a life-changing decision about his future.
As Beatlemania continues at McKinley, it’s time for the students to vote for prom queen and king. When Tina receives a nomination, she takes on a fierce attitude that alienates her biggest supporters. Meanwhile, Rachel adjusts to a new attitude of her own, as she and Santana work at a Broadway diner to make ends meet.
New Directions examine the early classics of The Beatles. After a disappointing callback, Rachel tries to gain much needed life experience by taking a job as a waitress. Artie is dismayed when his sort-of girlfriend Kitty demands they keep their romance on the “downlow.” Blaine plans a spectacular event that will unite friends and foes when he decides to ask Kurt to marry him.
