Maybe This Time from Cabaret is featured in The Rhodes Not Taken, the fifth episode of Season One. It is sung by April and Rachel.
The song is performed after the New Directions became very reluctant to have April join the Glee Club since Rachel quit. It is April’s first song performed, and she sings it as proof that she does have the talent. The performance makes Kurt emotional to the point where he cries at the end of the song.

Trivia

* Lindsay Pearce sung this as her second last chance performance on The Glee Project.
* This is April’s first duet on the show.
* As well as being performed, the instrumental version of this song can be heard for a few seconds late in the episode The Rhodes Not Taken, when April is walking down the hallway, prior to Somebody to Love.
* Kristin Chenoweth sang this song for her live-album ‘Coming Home’ at her own theatre in her hometown Broken Arrow, Oklahoma.

April:
Maybe this time, I’ll be lucky
Maybe this time he’ll stay
Maybe this time, for the first time
Love won’t hurry away

He will hold me fast I’ll be home at last
Not a loser anymore like the last time, and the time before!

Rachel:
Everybody loves a winner!

So nobody loved me
Lady peaceful, Lady happy
That’s what I long to be
All the odds are, they’re in my favor!
