Lea Michele made her rounds in New York City this weekend for their annual Fashion Week festivities:
Alexander Wang – Spring 2012
Last episode of Season 2. That came around fast…
Love the way they started the episode. I made it! She definitely did…right smack dab in the middle of Times Square NYC!
Umm…WHO GOES to NYC for Nationals and THEN tries to write original songs?! WTH?!
Times Square…Central Park…Washington Square Park…Lincoln Center. *sigh* I miss NY (was just there in April!)! Great location scenes!
Can you say PROMOTION?! How awesome that Matthew Morrison got to sing one of HIS OWN songs (Still Got Tonight from his newly released self-titled album) on the show?!
Umm, the Finchel date was a bit silly. Rachel got all dressed up for a “work date”?! Come on. Pretty cute tho…meeting on the Bow Bridge in Central Park…Finn giving her flowers. And this ISN’T A DATE?!
Patti Lupone cameo = Awesome. Especially since they’ve used her name in the show MANY times. I mean, Rachel even thought she could be Patti Lupone’s daughter at one point! Very cool.
Quite cute with the boys singing Bella Notte (can you say Lady & the Tramp?) in the background of Finchel’s walk. I have to say I’m glad Rachel just didn’t give in and kiss Finn at that moment tho. Geez…gotta at LEAST make the guy work a little for it, considering what a jerk he was at one point!
Although totally unrealistic (financially) for two high school students to be dressed up like that, gotta say I LOVED what Chris & Lea wore to “breakfast at Tiffany’s.” So stylish and classy. They looked so glam!
Words cannot describe how ELATED I was that Lea & Chris sang For Good. It was AMAZING! Lea especially did a little bit extra with her part in the song, which was perfection! And wouldn’t have it any other way that she sing it with Kurt/Chris! For Good is my #2 song from Wicked behind Defying Gravity!. LOVE LOVE LOVED it! And the song is very fitting for Kurt & Rachel’s relationship/friendship.
Not to mention the fact that they got to perform it on the ACTUAL Wicked stage in NYC’s Gershwin Theatre!!! That must’ve been SO SURREAL for both Lea & Chris! Talk about a dream come true! I was JUST in that theatre not long ago…I saw Broadway’s Wicked right in that theatre!
I guess I felt a LITTLE bad for Quinn when she was throwing her little tantrum. I mainly loved that scene because it was great to see the three girls together like that…Santana, Quinn & Brittany. They don’t have many scenes together now that they aren’t Cheerios anymore.
I suppose the Sunshine/Rachel relationship had to come full circle. YES Rachel DID send Sunshine to a crack house…but the way she handled herself here made up for that FOR SURE. She was so classy about it, knowing that Sunshine is a HUGE threat towards New Directions winning/placing at Nationals.
But Rachel really did give Sunshine to confidence to perform…Don’t think she would’ve been able to go out there if Rachel wasn’t in the stand’s cheering her on. Even tho Rachel is SO DETERMINED to win and be a star, she really does have a HEART…that’s one of the things I love about her.
Wonder if that was the last we’ll see of Sunshine? Will Charice be back next season? I’m assuming Sunshine WASN’T a senior yet…and Charice is definitely popular enough where they could bring her back.
Now…that big FINCHEL KISS. What do we all think about that?! Although I KNOW all the Finchel fans were just DYING seeing that…since it’s been a long time coming…I personally thought it was a bit much. Especially during a live COMPETITION PERFORMANCE. But I guess at least the kiss was appropriately linked the words of the song. Do you think that kiss really was THE REASON they didn’t place in the Top 10?
What did everyone thing of the original songs at Nationals? I thought they were pretty good…not as good as the Regionals ones, but good. Who knows…maybe the quality of these songs, since not quite AS good as Regionals, is ANOTHER reason they lost?
Sam & Mercedes? KINDA CUTE. I guess the whole prom dance thing WASN’T Sam just being nice. I’m happy for Mercedes! Hopefully this relationship will last! At least for a while anyway.
Although I’m STILL not quite on the Finchel bandwagon yet, I will admit they are pretty cute together. I definitely like Rachel with Finn over Jessie, that’s for sure. Let’s hope Finn doesn’t become a DOOFUS again and screw it all up. Sorry Finchel fans, but I’m figuring they can’t keep these two together forever. It’ll become boring. Something’s GOTTA happen at some point. But I’m sure for now they’ll be rock solid again. After all…they are THE couple of this show. We all know that.
12th place never felt so good! We all kinda figured they’d HAVE to lose Nationals this year. Then they’ll have something to strive for next season!
Sad the season has come to an end. For a finale, didn’t really think this episode was THAT great. Other than all the NY stuff, which I LOVED, it was just okay. They didn’t even really leave anything up in the air for next season. Guess they’ll have to come back with a BANG in Season 3!
Can’t wait! Although I’ll HAVE to wait…and quite a while too.

Glee was the cover story for The Hollywood Reporter, where they went with the cast to NYC, where they taped their season finale!
A few of the Gleeks attended the annual MET (Metropolitan Museum of Art) Gala in NYC tonight. This is the event where a lot of celebrities (especially the ladies) dress pretty wild & funky…which I guess is supposed to be “artsy.” The Gleeks were pretty tasteful:
I’m guessing this look is a “goddess” look. The dress has an interesting cut, and Dianna pulls it off very well. Her hairdo is a bit severe, but it matches the look. Love how the dress just falls. So sleek and flattering.
Altho Matthew looks great, I’m not a big fan of the white tux. I guess it adds a little bit of “pizzazz” to the look…and if you were going to be more “bold,” this would be the event to do it.
I thought Lea looked gorgeous! Loved the red…and her hair! Haven’t seen her hair so straight like this in a while…so pretty! The dress (Escada) had kind of a “patchwork”/ragged look…interesting. Kinda funky yet classy. Altho her purse was so tiny, I thought it was really cute and matched her look so well!
What did YOU think?
Yesterday it was Times Square…today it’s Central Park! They’re killing me…they’re going to all the places I JUST visited!

Wish I was still there!
Talk about TIMING. Right AFTER I leave NYC, the Glee cast heads over there and are taping all around NYC this week! Tons of pics and vids have been posted of the cast filming on location in Times Square today!
Looks like the Glee girls were filming a musical number RIGHT ON the TKTS bleachers! I was JUST there (and took pics) on those bleachers just last week!
The Gleeks also interacted with fans…signing some autographs and even giving high fives to the crowd! How cute!
How AWESOME is that?! I WISH I could’ve been there to see some of that!
