Glee - Opening Night

Opening night of Funny Girl finally arrives for Rachel (Lea Michele). Kurt (Chris Colfer) takes away the cell phone of his panicking roommate to create a “bubble of love” in the hours leading up to her Broadway debut with the help of several other former members of New Directions.

But it’s Santana (Naya Rivera) who ends up having just the right words to get her out of bed, forget the negative gossip blogs, and take her rightful place on stage.

This leads to Holly’s performance of Eddie Murphy‘s “Party All The Time” during a meeting of the school’s Animal Husbandry Club which, of course, fails miserably leaving Will (Matthew Morrison) no choice but admit defeat and close the choir room for the final time (but not before we get a host of new and recreated numbers for the show’s 101st episode and the past and current members of New Directions coming together to create a short film thanking Mr. Shue and offering their look at the teacher who changed their lives for his future daughter or son).
