One way to take a TV show from epic to iconic is to give viewers a memorable music-filled episode. These shows definitely shimmied and sang their way to straight-up legend territory.
In season 2 of the dark, comic-inspired hit, our favorite drama-prone high schoolers put on a production of Carrie: The Musical. The cast (within a cast) sings “A Night We’ll Never Forget” as they prepare for their big debut.
How I Met Your Mother
Barney’s suits are pretty much a supporting cast member in themselves, so it totally made sense when Neil Patrick Harris led the gang in an epic number called “Nothing Suits Me Like a Suit.”
During the seventh season of Grey’s Anatomy, the cast proved they’re not only elite surgeons, but they can sing. The doctors performed multiple songs throughout the episode, including (appropriately) a cover of The Fray’s “How to Save a Life.”
In its third season, the cast of Community rang in the holidays with a Christmas-themed musical episode. Yep, that meant five different songs.
The Scrubs musical moment remains one of its most iconic. The season 6 episode was so epic, in fact, that it earned five Emmy nominations (and won one!).
Disney Channel fans fondly remember “Influenza: the Musical,” an episode that found everyone from Christy Carlson Romano to Shia LaBeouf showing off singing chops.
The climactic moment of Skins‘ season 1 finale was this somber cover of Cat Stevens’ “Wild World.”
Hart of Dixie
Hart of Dixie went out with a bang, thanks to this musical number in the series finale. The whole cast joined in to wrap up the storyline and show where our fave Bluebell residents were headed.
