OKAY so i have a small story to go with this kurtcede’s duet headcanon of mine!
OH OH maybe Mercedes is trying to get attention for her album, but this other girl is trying to sell her album at the same area. Mercedes was there first but the girl insists that they have a sing off, and let the crowd choose which girl is better.
Mercedes already has an idea, ‘Saving All My Love For You’ by Whitney Houston of course~! Mercedes writes out her idea, and arrangements and puts it in her giant purse and decides to get some juice at the food court or something. On her way she sees Kurt and Blaine and they chat. Kurt points out that he sees that girl and a few people going through her bag, finding her song choice! SO KLAINE ARE LIKE “WHAT THE WOW???”and almost runs over there but Mercedes stops them and tells them that she’ll handle it.
SO she confronts them but pretends she didn’t know that they took her song. After they leave Mercedes is like bombarded with ‘WHY’ questions by Kurt and Blaine. She answers with something like “A real musician knows how to improvise, boys!”.
On the night of the sing-off, you have Artie, Blaine Santana, and Sam with his shirt off and chest covered in painted ‘Mercedes ROX’ scibbles (which Rachel is still painting on Sam). There’s a whole crowd surrounding Mercedes and the girl. The girl goes first, performing Mercede’s first song choice and the crowd LOVES IT.
Then once it’s Mercede’s turn, she snaps her fingers and Kurt comes outta no where wearing some ridiculously cool outfit and they pretty much bring down the house.
Once they finish the crowd cheers, and now they must choose who’s album deserves more attention! It’s very hilariously tense and there’s dramatic close ups and stuff! The girl mentions that Mercedes did not even SING but RAP, plus she had a back up singer, when it was supposed to be a one-on-one match.
The crowd agrees and votes the girl as the winner and buys her copies (they both had boxes with copies of their albums to give out!).
So Mercede’s doesn’t win, but it’s cool because it isn’t easy selling your work! So everyone pats her on the back and comforts her but Mercedes is okay because she’s just happy that she got to get herself out there some how, and now people kind of know who she is, even if it is for accidentally cheating in a sing off!
So we end it with them walking to get some ice cream, and Artie rapping the song while Sam, Blaine and Santana dance provocatively, and everyone laughs
