'Glee' Season Premiere: Track List, First Full Scene Released

By the time the second season of Glee premieres Sept. 21, there may not be much left to see. In addition to the promo released last week, now more plot details, an entire scene from the first episode, and the premiere's track listing are coming out:

Rolling Stone has learned that the first episode will feature renditions of Jay-Z's "Empire State of Mind," Lady Gaga's "Telephone," Travie McCoy's "Billionaire," and Poison's "Every Rose Has Its Thorn." In true Gleek fashion, the cast will also perform two vintage Broadway musical standards -- "What I Did for Love" from A Chorus Line and "Getting to Know You" from The King and I -- as well as "Listen" from the film version of Dreamgirls.

Also check out this promo that came out last week, which includes a glimpse of Rachel vocal-sparring with new rival played by Filipino pop star Charice, the Gleeks in the Big City, and a preview of some Sue Sylvester gems:
