The cast of Glee reunited to perform "Shallow" this weekend — and we're totally Gleekin' out!
On Saturday (June 8), several of the hit television show's former castmates — Darren Criss, Chord Overstreet, Diana Agron, Amber Riley, Jenna Ushkowitz, Harry Shum Jr., and Kevin McHale — met up in Los Angeles for a fun night of karaoke to sing the smash song from A Star Is Born made famous by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper. The show, which birthed some of the entertainment industry's brightest talents, went off-air for its final episode in 2015.
Per videos posted to several of the co-stars' Instagram accounts, the group went to a piano bar in the area called Tramp Stamp Grannys, where, after catching up and snapping selfies, Criss took a seat at the piano and invited his Glee buddies and singer-songwriter Winter Rae to join him in an ensemble performance of the Grammy-winning record.
McHale posted a few group shots (see below) from the fateful meet-up — albeit one blurrier than the other, which Shum Jr. quipped his own re-post — along with the hilarious caption, "Reality vs expectations." Riley also took jest in the blurry snapshot, sharing the image with: “Figure it out. #10yearsandthisisthebestwecoulddo.”
Last night must have been a purely adorable moment for Gleeks everywhere who haven't seen the cast together like this since several of the alumna — including Heather Morris and Becca Tobin — battled each other on Drop the Mic in March and rejoined over dinner in Los Angeles a year prior with Mr. Schue (a.k.a. Matthew Morrison).
