The concert was amazing. I took pictures with my phone, but honestly, I was too busy staring with mouth agape and hands clapping to do anything much.

They surprised us with the Warblers! The WARBLERS! They were all there. All of them. Oh my gosh. It was amazing. There were video segments with Sue and Mr. Shue. Cheerios handed out barf bags because the show was going to be that vomit-inducingly bad. I didn't get one...sad sad. There was confetti, t-shirt guns, and tons of music. I was staring at the stage at one point and not paying attention to the little stage that was close to us, and Robb smacks me and goes, "LOOK!"

Puck. Was. Right. THERE!

Oh my gosh. There were a few points in the show where I was so overwhelmed by the fact that all these kids I've watched for two years on TV were RIGHT THERE! SINGING! LIVE! that I might have teared up a little. I'm such a fangirl. And going in to it, I was thinking, "This is going to be a lot of fun, but nothing earth shattering or anything..." I don't know if it was the crowd or what, but I got caught up like a little 'tween.

They opened with "Don't Stop Believin'", Britney did "Slave 4 U", Mercedes sang the hell out of "Ain't No Way", they did "Fat Bottom Girls", the Warblers did "Raise Your Glass"...and many others including "Loser Like Me". The show was about an hour with a half hour encore, so about an hour and a half. I thought it was on the short side, but I understand that singing and dancing for two hours can probably be pretty tiring.

All-in-all? Phenomenal.

Again- major jealousy. Sigh. That sounds like it was awesome. They really do need to ease up on the 80s songs though. Dag! I also watch "Glee" on Hulu, because I usually have supervision on Tuesday nights at exactly that time. It's probably the one techno-savvy thing I do ever.

And yay, by the way, on the possibility of a wedding! What fun! I'll try to pay attention to your posts so I can say "mazel tov" at the appropriate point(s). :- ) Wow, who'd have thought Illinois would get it together on this? Good for Illinois!
