Did you miss Glee's mash-off between the New Directions and The Troubletones? If so, keep reading to see who brought the goods.

Glee's 300th musical performance, Adele and a mash-off? Did we die and go to Glee heaven? Nope it was just the new episode, "Mash Off."

A few noteworthy stories played out during "Mash Off," including the public outing of Santana (she hasn't told her parents yet) and the long-awaited mash-off between McKinley's own New Directions and The Troubletones.

We brought you a preview of Shelby's all-girl group The Troubletones taking on a mash-up of Adele's "Rumour Has It" and "Someone Like You," but seeing it fit into this week's episode brought on a whole other level of excitement.

Mr. Schue and Shelby thought some friendly competition between the New Directions and The Troubletones would prepare them for sectionals -- Gleeks, we give you the first annual mash-off!

Finn nominated Rory to lead the mash-off for the New Directions with him -- wait, what?

Yeah, the new kid did the honor of leading the mash-off with Finn after Santana tortured them both for 45 minutes of the hour-long episode -- it was pretty funny.

The New Directions hit the stage first with a mash-up of "I Can't Go For That (No Can Do)" and "You Make My Dreams" by Hall & Oates.

Let's just say their bright pink and blue shirts, mock mustaches and skinny ties made the whole mash-off!

The Troubletones, which includes Mercedes (Amber Riley), Brittany and Santana, (Naya Rivera), were fierce!

Their Adele mash-up was nothing but soul, sass and serious singing. If you didn't see it, check out the video...

In an interesting twist, Sue's campaign came back to hurt Santana.

After Finn called Santana out for being in the closet, one of Sue's opponents caught wind and used the information to make Sue look bad for promoting a lesbian on the Cheerios.

That story is going to play out more when the show returns in two weeks.

We also have to mention that Kurt and Rachel made up after she withdrew from running for class president and Shelby found out Quinn was setting her up.
