Hailey was a little excited over discussing what songs they should do for sectionals. It was the one thing that she had never experienced, and wondered how the whole process would pan out. At least she could sit back and take in what was being said, and see if she couldn't participate somehow in the discussion process. Being the newest member to the glee club, Hailey knew that taking an initial backseat to this talking and discussing would be the most appropriate thing to do.
Slowly closing her locker, Hailey placed her bag over her shoulder, and headed towards the rehearsal room where they glee club would be meeting. Her ballet flats made a small soft sound as she headed inside, and her eyes wandered a bit, giving small grins to some of the members. When her gaze fell on Charlie's face, she gave him a bit more of a smile, as he seemed to be nice enough, and gave some sort of comment on what she had sang when she auditioned for a spot in New Directions.
Sitting down in a spare chair, a seat away from some of the members, Hailey rested her bag on the leg of her chair, and placed her hands in her lap. She wondered who might start this discussion.

(OOC incredibly sorry for my absence)
Charlie was playing Angry Birds on his phone in the choir room while the others where gargling on and on about sectionals and what they wanted to use in their set list. Now that Vocal Adrenaline had Rachel they were all running scared due to the vacuum left in the place of a lead female vocalist.
Personally the cheerleader didn’t understand why they were worried. Unless there was an unusual draw in the balloting for regionals, they would only meet the Carmel team at the national competition, meaning they wouldn’t have to worry about Rachel’s admittedly impressive vocals. Besides, they had plenty of hot bitches in this club who were more than capable of rocking any song they wanted to such as Santana and Mercedes.
‘Now there’s an idea that would win sectionals for us’. Charlie thought to himself. That was when he heard someone mention RENT. He wasn’t sure who it was that said it but that didn’t matter, RENT was a key word that brought out a musical performance in him and Mr. Schue wasn’t here yet, so he wouldn’t face any of the bigotry that Kurt had once faced when he tried to break a gender stereotype.
Standing up from his seat, Charlie walked to the front of the room.
“Fellow gleeks” he said, addressing the others. “I’d like to take this opportunity to address your incessant ramblings about our upcoming sectionals competition.” He noticed Santana snickering at the back, despite a few faces looking offended. “I heard someone mention doing a song from RENT and I think I have the perfect song that will also help us decide how to address the current lack of a spotlight hogging female lead. That being said, allow me to demonstrate how we do RENT. Hit it!” the band begun to a play a rock beat that had that infectious ability of certain songs to make people dance as Charlie pulled a chair forward, turned it around and sat on it backwards, straddling his legs over it and resting his elbows on the back as he held up his chin with one hand and pouted. “What's the time? Well it's gotta be close to midnight My body's talking to me It says,'Time for danger'” Charlie sang, seductively winking at the club as he stood up, kicking the chair away and twitching his fingers at the girls , signalling for them to come up and dance with him.
“It says 'I wanna commit a crime Wanna be the cause of a fight Wanna put on a tight shirt And flirt with a stranger'” Charlie continued to dance and sing around the girls, taking Mercedes’ hand and letting her spin him. He sang the rest of the song in his sweet, sultry voice, dancing suggestively with each of the girls as he continued towards the end of the song.
“When I get a wink from the doorman Do you know how lucky you'll be? That you're on line With the feline of Avenue B Let's go out tonight I have to go out tonight You wanna prowl Be my night owl? Well take my hand we're gonna howl Out tonight” the music slowed down now as the song entered it’s final verse, Charlie now stood in the centre of the room gently holding a mic stand that Mercedes had dragged out for him during the dance. The girls were now stood behind him harmonizing as he sang.
“In the evening I must roam Can't sleep in the city of neon and chrome Feels too damn much like home When the spanish babies cry” the girls moved forward as Charlie unhooked the microphone, kicking the stand over and begun to belt the song.
“So let's find a bar So dark we forget who we are And all the scars from the Nevers and maybes die” he couldn’t help his arrogant smirk as he watched the others watch him hold the note impeccably.
“Let's go out tonight Have to go out tonight You're sweet Wanna hit the street? Wanna wail at the moon Like a cat in heat? Just take me out tonight Please take me out tonight Don't forsake me - out tonight I'll let you make me - out tonight Tonight - tonight – tonight” he winked at the others as he put the microphone back on its stand after picking up. “And that, my friends” he said into the mic “is how you perform a RENT song.”
