Glee fever!
— Ally to Trish

"Glee Clubs & Glory" is the 6th episode in Season 3 of Austin & Ally and the 51st episode overall. It first aired on January 19th, 2014 to 3.0 million views.[1]


After the tenor gets hurt, Austin joins Ally's glee club. But when he gets his own ideas on what the music should be, he forms a rival glee club. Will Austin and Ally be able to work together and win regionals? Or will they lose not only the competition but their partnership as well?

Episode Summary

In order to replace an injured tenor, Austin joins Ally and Trish in Marino High's Glee Club. He is introduced to several other members of the club, including Miles, a boy with a quiet voice, B.B., a girl who happens to hate everything, Sunhee, a girl who speaks fluent Korean, and Elle, who is shown to have a giant crush on Austin, as well as the sponsor in charge, Coach Simmons.

In the midst of one of their rehearsals, he has an idea to change the club's style that would lead away from its traditional roots. As Ally doesn't like it, he; Trish; and some of the other kids start their own rivaling glee club against Ally's. In order to counter against Austin's team, Ally allows Dez to join her team so that she has enough members.

In a later rehearsal, the two teams duke out in a mini-musical competition. Though, because of their fighting and arguing, Coach Simmons kicks both Austin and Ally out of the club, somehow making


Dez the new club president. However, Dez's leadership, dance moves, and ideas are so strange and annoying that it makes Trish tell Ally to make up with Austin. After a talk in the practice room, the duo makes up, thus having Trish then getting the coach to let them back in the club. Then, combining and compromising both of their ideas for a new song, the glee club sings the Austin & Ally Glee Club Mash Up, having them win first place at regionals.

At the end in Sonic Boom, Austin, Ally, Trish, and Dez agree to keep the trophy on the counter, but they all rush back because they want it. They end up breaking it, then tossing the pieces back, not wanting it anymore.
