Glee Clubs: 10 Real High School Song-And-Dance Groups That Rival New Directions

The third season of "Glee" wrapped up this week with a cliffhanger and enough dazzling musical numbers to make you wish you'd stuck with your elementary school chorus classes. But Broadway dreams, powerhouse vocals, perfectly-choreographed dance routines and matching costumes aren't just a made-for-TV fantasy.
