Note: information from YouTube

Judy Garland and Barbra Streisand sing “Get Happy” and “Happy Days Are Here Again” in a counterpoint duet. This performance is from episode 9 of the Judy Garland Show, broadcast on October 6, 1963. It is available in a number of DVD “Judy Garland Show” collections which seem to go in and out of print. US viewers can probably buy or rent one of these DVDs online; worldwide viewers are probably out of luck. Barbra was 21 years old at the time and received an Emmy nomination for her guest appearance. On October 12, 2010, the hit television series GLEE featured this duet, with Barbra’s role performed by Lea Michele and Judy’s role performed by Chris Colfer. Lea was 24 at the time while Chris was 20 years old. Both Lea and Chris are very talented young singers and gave an amazing performance of this song. Kudos to GLEE for including this song on the show. I still wish GLEE didn’t feel the need to disguise the warmth of their talented cast members’ voices with AutoTune. They hire wonderful singers, then electronically distort their vocal skills. However, GLEE is introducing a new generation of viewers to wonderful songs like this, so I can’t really complain.
