The Jesse St. James mystery!

March 25, 2010

Note: Hi gleeks! It seems that lately a lot of you have found this post via Google and I’m so glad that you came to check out my blog! Please note, however, that this post was written on March 25, 2010 – that’s about 3 and a half weeks before the episode “The Power of Madonna” aired, in which Jesse St. James left Vocal Adrenaline and joined New Directions. That’s why when I wrote this post, the reason behind Jesse St. James’ appearance with New Directions was still a mystery!

Gleeksters, we have a mystery to solve! Who’s up for the task? I’ve been alerted (thank you @kylieallport!) to a strange sighting of Jesse St. James, the new character played by Jonathan Groff, being present during New Directions’ performance of “Like a Prayer.” That’s right, the lead male singer of Vocal Adrenaline, performing with New Directions. Uh…WHAT?! The photographic evidence is below:

A screenshot from the most recent promo aired during American Idol, Rachel is very clearly singing with Jesse. (Source:

Again, screencaps from the most recent Idol-aired promo, this time with my horrible white circles. (Source:

This seems to be a posed set photo that they perhaps took for the choir to have? (Source:

So, gleeks, tell me! What are your theories as to why Jesse St. James (Jonathan Groff) is clearly in the “Like a Prayer” performance? Did he leave Carmel High and Vocal Adrenaline and is now a McKinley High New Directions’ kid? If so, is he doing it legitimately or is he secretly a spy? Is this a dream sequence of Rachel’s where she’s singing duets with Jesse instead of Finn? What is going on here?! Head to the comments and share your theories!

    He’s obviously spying for the other team. I’ll bet he says he’s going to McKinley to “be closer to Rachel” but doing secret rehearsals with Vocal Adrenaline and telling them all of ND’s songs, dances and set lists. He’ll drop out of McKinley and go back to Carmel the day of Regionals and VA will win the competition.

    There is this story by the minsk on fanfiction which could be a possible story line for the show. Here is the link
    It is a really good story and could be a real possibility for the show. I’m kinda hoping it is in a way because it ends with Finn and Rachel together and Kurt and Jesse together. K and J could totally be a power couple!

    I’m more worried about where Kurt is?! He’s not in the pictures!


    But yes, I think he’s possibly a spy because he was also hanging in the hall during school, if I remember correctly…

    We know that Jesse and the vocaal coach of V A are there to destroy New Directions and Will’s reputation. Jesse is pretending he likes Rachel just to be there and spy. We know Kurt’s boyfriend is comimg on the next season so we’ll have to wait.
    Dear Kurt definatly deserves someone much better than that.

    jesse st. james transfered to mckinley high already in that episode since his parents were away and he was living with a relative who is living close to mckinley high…

    … but i’m thinking there is still an evil plot behind it..

    dado que este comentario es de principios de junio y ya he visto los capítulos, ya se que Jesse es un maldito espía. A pesar de ser un bastardo, me encanta. Es bellisimo y con una voz magnifica.

    It was obvious that he was spying but I think that helped us understand Rachel more (she’s gullible).
    It meant he was in the programme more which can only be a good thing!
