Obligatory "WOO LOOK AT ME I AM SO EXCITED!" shot.
|Woo! Glee Live!!!|
|Ready to go!|
We booked it up to the
|Damn, that's a lot of people.|
|Aaaaah! ZOMG IT'S STARTING|
|Fittingly, the concert began with insults from the queen herself.|
|"Don't Stop Believin'"|
But fear not! A few bars later, everyone else joined them on stage, even the much beloved Brittany S. Pierce.
|Hey! It's everyone!|
Last year, the concert followed a story arc and ran very much like an episode. This year, they launched right into the songs, which I appreciated. Jenna Ushkowitz and Amber Riley did lead vocals on "Dog Days Are Over" from Florence + The Machine.
|"Dog Days Are Over"|
After a brief pause and some "Hey Chicago!"s from the cast, they went right into what everyone was waiting for:
|"It's Brittany. Bitch."|
|"Slave 4 U"|
After that, they brought out Puckerman (what's his name?) to sing one of my favorite songs from the season.
|It's PUCK! He was right below us. "Fat Bottomed Girls"|
|It's Finn, er, Cory Monteith on drums. Who knew?|
|"I Want To Hold Your Hand."|
Can I just say how much I love him? Like, for reals. I'll have a million little gay babies if they're all as well spoken as Chris Colfer and/or as fabulous and wonderful as Kurt Hummel.
Next up, Amber's turn at the mic.
|"Ain't No Way."|
|"P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)|
FYI, I think he dances even better in person. Not that I'm an expert, but I didn't see him stumble or miss a step or hesitate. He just owned it. So awesome.
Last year I was super pissed to have missed "Bad Romance". This year, they gave me my Gaga fix with "Born This Way."
|"Born This Way"|
|Shirt cannons during Born This Way.|
After thousands of audience members fought for a shot at a shirt shot from a cannon, they let
Brief pause.....and then....ohmygoshandthen................THE WARBLERS!!!!!!!!
Darren Criss. DARREN CRISS. DARREN. CRISS. Oh wow....I really love him. Like in a "Can I please make out with you for 10 minutes and that's all I'll ask forever?" kind of a way.
I'm such a sucker for a guy who can sing. A "puddle of mush" kind of sucker. Just ask anyone from the Quigley Prep Glee Club, circa 2001.
|"Silly Love Songs"|
He seriously makes me feel like I'm 16 again. It's like it's 2000 and I'm standing at the back door of St. Laurence High School, trying to flirt with the captain on the wrestling team, only he's too in love with his creepily tight suit to notice I'm saying words.
|"Raise Your Glass"|
Three songs wasn't enough. I'd totally go to a Warblers concert. Glee? Glee who?
I'm glad they made space in the set list for solos AND duets. Made for a much better concert. AND it meant I got to hear my favorite duet of the season....
|"Happy Days Are Here Again/Get Happy"|
Those two have some seeeeeeeeeerious talent.
OMG GUYS, THEN WE GOT TO GO BACK TO HIGH SCHOOL!!!!!!!!
|ZOMG WE'RE TOTALLY AT MCKINLEY|
Instead, Dianna Agron and Chord Overstreet sang 'Lucky'. I'll take it.
|"River Deep, Mountain High"|
|Brittany woos 'Blaine Warbler'|
Maybe it's because I couldn't hear a damn thing, but I didn't think their dialogue was that funny. Heather Morris has had much better to work with on the show. BUT, since it's Blaine and Brittany, they could have stood on stage speaking Klingon and the fans would have eaten it up.
|Is Blaine going to leave Dalton and join Glee????|
|"Loser Like Me"|
|We've all been slushied.|
They sang the next song even though Friday was the day before.
After "Friday", they let Kevin McHale out of his
They followed up that number with a reminder that they went to NYC in the last ep.
|"Empire State of Mind"|
|"Somebody to Love"|
|A big ole flashy finale.|
But it was still a really good show! Yay Glee!
Afterwards, we met up with Graham's cousin Rebecca. She was the next section over with her boyfriend Mike. Small world, eh?
Because I'm a sheep, I got a foam finger. Whatever. You're jealous.
All in all, it was a really fun concert and a great night out. I'd definitely go to another Glee concert, especially next year. Looks like most of the principle cast will be graduating, so it very well may be their last concert as a cast. It was suuuuuuuuuuuuper fun and, as I am a humongo nerd, I had a great time. Teenage girl: engaged.
