ew.com on Charice's debut as Sunshine Corazon in "Glee": "The other major newcomer tonight was that Oprah-endorsed nugget of soul. Charice/Sunshine's voice is insane, especially considering she’s about the size of a lawn gnome and dresses like a Harajuku girl (although I do always love the addition of a nice beret). And just like Beiste's arrival brought out the beast in Sue, so too did Sunshine's debut provide a focus for the crazy machinations of our fair Rachel Berry, and that, in turn, shone a spotlight on Lea Michele's undeniable skills. Girl was absolutely bitch-tastic in this episode -- sending the brand-new exchange student to a crack house? -- and then surprisingly touching at the end (and that’s hard to do while wearing socks with loafers)."
