Glee is, above all, a completely unique pop artifact. When it burst onto the television and music scenes in 2009, it seemed like a truly terrible idea. Television musicals had been attempted before, of course, but never successfully, and it seemed as though Glee was just riding the waves of successful Disney Channel products like High School Musical. This was a show about teenagers in a high school singing and dancing, after all. To say that the show could have been a colossal disaster is an understatement, and it certainly doesn’t describe what Glee was and what it became. It also doesn’t make sense to call Glee a tremendous success, as it would have been easy to label it following its first and maybe even its second season. From there, the show dovetailed and more than occasionally became a parody of its earlier success. Make no mistake though, when Glee was succeeding, »

Glee closed up shop for good last week, and the cast was all over social media talking about it. Some of them have been with the show for the full six seasons, so we don't blame them for getting a little emotional. Kevin McHale, Jenna Ushkowitz, and Mark Salling expressed their thanks to fans and shared vintage pictures with late costar Cory Monteith. Meanwhile, Naya Rivera took things to the next level. Take a look at the pictures and quotes below, then relive the last moments with pictures from the finale, behind-the-scenes photos, and info about where to see the cast next.

Since we saw all the pictures from the series finale of Glee, we knew that the first half of the two-part episode would be a flashback set in 2009 - when the first season was set - but we also knew that it would be impossible for one beloved original character, Finn Hudson, to be part of that flashback. However, last week, the Glee cast told Ellen DeGeneres that there would be "a moment" dedicated to Cory Monteith in the episode, and there is - Finn shows up! While the majority of the episode was shot by the actors in the present day, and the characters only talk about him (and even have a secret meeting to oust him from the glee club) at the very end, we get to see old footage featuring Monteith - and it's goose-bumps-inducing. The series chose the clip from the pilot where the glee cast »

TV show description:
The Glee Club at McKinley High School used to be at the top of the show choir world but, after a series of scandals, it's now become an unpopular haven for social outcasts. Optimistic teacher Will Schuester (Matthew Morrison) pleads with the principal to let him take over teaching the group, to try to return the club to its »
Don't stop believing! After six drama-filled seasons of loves and losses, triumphs and tragedies, show tunes and mash-ups, Glee ended its run with a two-hour series finale that flashed back to 2009, paid tribute to Finn, and showed us the Tony Award-winning, Vice Presidential, success-filled futures of our beloved New Directions members. The May 2009 debut of Ryan Murphy's pilot — and the spunky rendition of Journey's "Don't Stop Believing" from the red shirt-clad misfits of McKinley High's glee club — turned newcomers Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, [...] »
With flashbacks, fast forwards, Oval Office aspirations and a tribute to Cory Monteith, Glee (0.8/3) sang its last song last night after 6 seasons on the air. Even with being relegated to a new direction on Fridays this season, the "2009" titled season closer was actually up last year's finale when it ran on a much more watched Tuesday. Matching the season high note of its January 9 premiere, Friday's 2-hour Glee leap up 33% from the 1-hour 8 Pm May 23, 2014 Season 5… »
And that’s all she wrote! The two-hour series finale of Glee aired last night, ending a six-year run of boundary-pushing story lines and characters. While the popular Fox show has definitely decreased in quality in its later seasons, it looks like Ryan Murphy finally listened to fans and delivered a flaw-free final act. Rachel won. Kurt won. Hell, everyone won. And that’s exactly the kind of sunshine fantasy fans needed to feel satisfied.
The finale was divided into two acts: “2009,” which took audiences back to — you guessed it — 2009, and “Dreams Come True,” which took us five years into the future. (Where Sue Sylvester is Vice President of the United States. Really.) In order to emotionally process all of last night’s feels, we’ve broken down the highlights from each episode. Grab a tissue; we promise you’ll need it.
Kurt is in trouble.

[Youtube "qaqVwlkTENc"] Many faces have passed through the halls of William McKinley High School. On Glee's series finale Friday, an impressive number of the show's alums - not to mention some of its more memorable fashion fads and cultural touchstones - appeared in Lima for one last song and dance. Here are a few of the highlights from the welcome returns, quirky character traits and celebrity cameos from Glee's two-hour finale.Everyone in the "I Lived" numberMike Chang (Harry Shum Jr.)! Sugar Motta (Vanessa Lengies)! All those Glee Project kids! The series-closing musical number had nearly everybody - old, new and in between. »

Let’s face it, “Glee” has been running on fumes for several seasons, making its two-hour finale more a subject of curiosity than the emotional event it would have been except for the hardiest “Gleeks.” Nor did this season’s buildup inspire much confidence, including such out-there moments as Sue Sylvester’s “Saw” homage and the combination of the McKinley High glee bunch with the rival Warblers, creating a giant if colorless super-team. Still, the big finish was everything it should have been, a sweet remembrance of what initially made the show take off. For a night, anyway, the series regained its voice.
Much of that can be attributed to the first hour (and Spoiler Alert if you haven’t watched), which flashed back to the formation of the Glee club in 2009, recalling such elements as Kurt (Chris Colfer) struggling to come out to his dad and Tina (Jenna Ushkowitz) still faking a stutter. »

The tears were flowing tonight for the New Directions. After six seasons of ups and downs, "Glee" came to an end on Friday night with an emotional two-hour episode that poked fun at the series' past, honored the late Cory Monteith and made us hopeful for our favorite characters as we learned where their lives will take them. The first hour gave us some missing backstory leading up to the events of the pilot, showing us why Kurt, Rachel, Mercedes, Tina and Artie all tried out for Mr. Schuester. We finally got to see Artie's audition (Ginuwine's "Pony," naturally), a missed connection between Kurt and Blaine and a near-ousting of Finn Hudson. But there was one moment that hit us in the gut: The first hour ending the same way as the pilot, reusing the original footage of the now-famous "Don't Stop Believin'" number. Seeing Cory Monteith looking happy, »

To illustrate just how much things have changed during the past six seasons, “2009” began with a still-closeted Kurt getting slapped with an unthinkable ultimatum: join an extracurricular team… or sacrifice his precious sewing machine. A chance meeting with Rachel Berry — of whose MySpace videos he was a big fan — led Lady Hummel to the glee club, »

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from the series finale of Fox's Glee.] It's the end of an era: Fox's Glee closed the book on McKinley High on Friday with a two-hour series finale that revealed not only the origins of New Directions but the futures for its respective alums. The two-part conclusion — written by creators Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan — also paid its respects to former leading man Cory Monteith, who died in 2013 at age 31, with a scene that put the spotlight on Finn's huge heart for one final time and included a

In Glee's six seasons, the show has seen massive highs and tragic lows, and Et was there for it all.
While the Fox hit became a TV phenomenon, winning four Golden Globes and six Emmys, the tragic and sudden death of star Cory Monteith in 2013 from a mixed drug toxicity forced the show to change everything.

"It used to, of course, end with Cory and Lea [Michele]," co-creator Ryan Murphy said. "It was a much more micro relationship ending, but I think that we've taken the heart of what we were going to do and expanded it so it feels sort of more macro and universal."
The Glee finale comes full circle with a look back at what made everyone join the club in the first place.

With a catalog that spans from Barbra Streisand to Queen, the Beatles to Adele, original songs and many more, the “Glee” cast has quite the menu to choose from when it comes to naming musical highlights from the past six seasons. The group took time out at PaleyFest to talk about some of the most memorable numbers from their years at McKinley High, including the most challenging.
In season one the show took on its first tribute episode, “The Power of Madonna,” and Jane Lynch says one song required more rehearsals and pre-production meetings than any other and was still quite the undertaking: “Vogue.”
“There was one step that I just didn’t get until they started rolling the cameras and it just happened magically,” Lynch said of the sequence, which re-creates Madonna’s music video for the hit tune. She laughed that she told the crew the one take »
