There are many songs that “Glee” has become known for over the years, but “Don’t Stop Believin'” is one of the few that sits atop the entire list. This was the final song in the pilot, and if you ask casual fans what song they remember the most, it is this one. It’s been redone a few times on the show over the years, and never gets completely old.
That’s why we are thrilled to hear that some selected cast members got a chance to perform the hit, potentially for the last time (depending on if there are reunions or whatnot in the future), at the Family Equality Council Awards in Los Angeles last night. The likes of Becca Tobin, Jenna Ushkowitz, Chord Overstreet, Lea Michele, Darren Criss, Alex Newell, and Harry Shum Jr. were all present to perform a multi-song set, with their signature song at the very end of it.
There are a couple of different reasons to be emotional about this song. It represents a bookend of sorts for one, and it also reminds us of the late Cory Monteith and what he meant to the show. We specifically mentioned Michele and Ushkowitz in the title because they are the two cast members present here who were there back when the song was first performed; they were joined in the pilot performance by Monteith, Chris Colfer, Amber Riley, and Kevin McHale.
There are a few moments in which you will smile while watching this video. The cast’s smiles during the performance says a lot about their experience with the show, and Harry’s dance moves in particular are sick. You can really just watch him the entire time and be happy.
There are still a few episodes of “Glee” remaining, but you can preview one of them right now over at the link here. Also, sign up to score some other great TV news via email, courtesy of our CarterMatt Newsletter. (Photo: Fox.)
