Darren Criss won our hearts pretty much the day we first met him at Dalton Academy belting out pop songs in his crisp navy blue and red blazer. In honor of the Glee star's 28th birthday, we're celebrating his 8 best Glee performances. This was somewhat hard to do because pretty much EVERY Darren Criss performance is amazing.
But we persevered and here is the ranking of our favorites:
8. Don't Stop Me Now - Queen
Yeah. Darren Criss + Queen should pretty much be illegal.
7. All of Me - John Legend
Real talk: KLAINE FOREVER.
6. It's Time - Imagine Dragons
This moving performance from Blaine to Kurt is what taught us that if you love something you have to let it go.
5. I'm Not Gonna Teach Your Boyfriend How To Dance With You - Black Kids
We can't EVEN handle how much attitude Darren brings to this song!
4. It's Not Right But It's Okay - Whitney Houston
Never say Darren can't pump it up from time to time!
3. Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.) - Katy Perry
So... Darren basically is Katy Perry now, right?
2. Cough Syrup - Young The Giant
Another sad one but this just makes us feel so many things!
1. Teenage Dream - Katy Perry
Falling in love with Blaine and that blazer all over again!
BONUS: Teenage Dream (acoustic)
Try to watch this performance and not cry forever. CAN'T. BE. DONE.
