So I wasn’t allowed to stay up past 4AM -.-
Luckily though, I forced my parents to let me watch the opening number. And all I can say is: WOW! 😀 I literally beamed when the show started and ROFLed to my hearts content. Jimmy Fallon was a great host and the Glee inspired opening really got everything started. And I can’t seem to stop myself from falling for Chris Colfer, it’s too bad he’s gay, he just oozes charisma and he looks amazing.
The random bunch who performed ‘Born to Run’ by Bruce Springsteen was also genious: Glee Cast members (Amber Riley, Chris Colfer, Lea Michelle, Cory Monteith, the great Jane Lynch), Tina Fey, Jon Hamm, Hurley from Lost, Joel McHale and Nina Dobrev (her appearance was a little surprising seeing how The Vampire Diaries wasn’t nominated for ANYTHING, but i guess she’s just that popular :P). The random cameos by Kate Gosselin, Tim Gunn and Randy Jackson on bass tied everything together, but according to most reviews that seemed to be the highlight of the show which is disappointing seeing as how for every award show, the opening is the only thing that I seem to love. That and the red carpet.
Here’s the opening, prepare to smile like crazy :):
