I forgot to post this earlier. Glee actually got a little bounce in the finals! It finished with a 2.5 rating in 18-49 and 6.01 million people. Not great but in relation to what’s happening with everybody else, not too bad. It’s off .2 from the Whitney episode.
I love that Kurt Hummel’s first instinct will always be “Maybe I need to bedazzle some shit.”
“Not the Boy Next Door” — Kurt
Forget “Phantom,” and throw on your gold lame pants, Kurt Hummel! That’s precisely what he did, making an 11th-hour audition switch — one that somehow still allowed him to wear the appropriate tear-away costume and bring on a trio of New Direction ladies as back-up singers — to sing this Hugh Jackman song from “The Boy From Oz.”
He was fabulous, winning over Tibideaux and proving that Hummel knows how to shake those hips when he has to. Grade: A.

The really important thing, though, is that Blaine loves him in it. I believe he applauded wildly, but this massive cloud of gloom is making it hard to be sure.
I do remember that when Kurt started worrying that he should do a different song, or something, or change everything, or maybe get more candles, Blaine says, “Oh god, no. No more candles.” And it was like the funniest thing he’s ever said. Plus he said it in that way that says, “So. Married.”
