A Merry Little Christmas With Darren Criss!

| Filed under: Music MinuteGleeDarren Criss

This kid is blowing up!

While you check out this video of Glee's Darren Criss spreading a little Christmas cheer through song (above), we'd like to tell you that at this very moment, Darren is SELLING OUT shows at the Roxy in West Hollywood!

That's right, selling out! Apparently, tickets for his first show on this coming Saturday went so quickly, they had to add a second show - at 3 in the afternoon!

Ha! Guess the tweens will be able to get in before bed time!

We admit the guy is talented and all and we've loved the stuff he's done on Glee, but he's not THAT special to be selling out the Roxy!

Behold the power of the Gleeks!

    Trust me, he has been selling out gigs BEFORE Glee. And to say that he's not all that special, then you are seriously under informed. He's is a musical genius and is supremely talented and DESERVES all the recognition he's getting.

  2. 2

    He's Harry Freaking Potter!! THAT's why he's selling out the Roxy. Not the Gleeks, the Starkid fans :)

  3. 3

    Are you joking? This guy is so talented and deserves sold out shows!

  4. 4

    I'd say it has a lot to do with a very potter musical…along with the glee explosion

  5. 5

    he's not just selling out shows because of glee, he's been doing shows for a while now and you're just covering him now because he's on glee.
    he has other fans who aren't just glee fans, he's huge because of a very potter musical.
    and obviously he deserves to sell out shows at the roxy if he's basically already sold out two.

    Re: Jamie Light – For real! I drove 5 hours to go see in perform in A Very Potter Sequel in Ann Arbor this past spring. For all 3 performances, fans had to contact the show and ask for tickets, if you were lucky, they gave you tickets. My group wasn't that lucky, but we went anyway and still got to get in and watch the show. He is very talented and who are you to say he isn't and doesn't deserve to sell out a show?

    I agree with everyone else who's commented so far: he's far more talented than the average Gleek realizes. He doesn't just sing, he writes music as well. He definitely deserves to be selling out shows, I'd love to see him!

  8. 8

    Honestly, I don't think he fits very well on Glee, no matter how much he sells he just doesn't have the kind of charisma that should be compatible with Kurt and his acting is very after-school-specialesque.

  9. 9

    He's super talented and deserves sold out shows.

  10. 10

    Just so you know its not just because of Glee. Have you even seen A Very Potter Musical? Plus he has done shows before. Hes amazing im so glad hes selling out shows and doing so well.

  11. 11

    It's not the Gleeks that are causing him to sell out the Roxy. It's the Starkids!

  12. 12

    He IS that special in fact. It's thanks to GLEE we got to discover this talented and charming young man, not the other way around. You're just jealous YOU didn't discover him. I'd buy a ticket, I'd even buy an album. So stop hating, Mario, I thought that was in your past, remember?

  13. 13

    i'm not 1 of those ppl who come here daily, i never created an account for that but this got me to finally make 1.

    i gotta say its a bit sickening when you come here and read articles with peoples talent being downplayed yet we have to sit though 1000 stories monthly about how talented Lady Gaga is (or Mr Gimmick as i call her) or how Perez is in gay love with her and Britney Spears. its annoying.

    this Criss guy is actually pretty talented. his plays and songs are pretty dope.

  14. 14

    Perez, first your his biggest fan and now you say he dont deserve to be selling out? Weird! Everytime he takes a crap you write and prase him, now you say he is not that great. Stick to your stories already. Unless someone else wrote that post, make up your mind please.

  15. 15

    Re: ToWhomItConcerns. – and btw before anybody starts with the "your a homophob!!!"…trust me i'm not.

  16. 16

    He's been selling out Before GLEE!!! SO check your facts perez!!! He's not that special?? You're just sooo jealous aren't you? Like always! He deserves all what he's getting now! and more!!! He's worked really hard to earn it!!! I'll forever love Harry Freakin' Potter!!! Starkids taking over the world!!!!

  17. 17

    Darren Criss isn't selling out shows simply because he's on Glee, though he does have more fans now than he did before. He has sold out shows before he landed the Glee role, both in LA and NYC. His original music is wonderful and beautiful and as Darren himself has said before "It is the kind of music you can be friends with." Darren's fans are very dedicated to him, and he humbleness at his new found stardom only adds to the fact that people want to see him perform live.

  18. 18

    He's been on thousands of people's radar for a year or two now. Just because he's new to your radar, doesn't make him any less talented, or worthy of selling out stadiums. He has the goods, why not sell tickets for it? whats that saying about lemons?

    Darren Criss is fricken amazing and i'm glad he's blowing up, he deserves it. But so do all the other characters from AVPM. Joey Richter, Lauren Lopez, Jaime Lyn Beatty, Joe Walker, Bonnie Gruesen. [there are so many more.] These are all amazingly talented, authentic creative people that should be recognized for their light and their talent. They are the gems within the rubble pile. I would rather read the reports about them selling out stadiums, in stead of the pointless chatter about someone's divorce, of nude pictures, Lindsay Lohan's upset about a glee line or Miley smoking salvia. Most of the people you cover on this website that are famous for just being famous. Starkid production people should be in the lime light. it's a breath of fresh air.

    jealous mario? when's the last time one of your great musical finds sold out the roxy? oh… guess you're not a very good judge as to when people are THAT special enough!

  20. 20

    I love him :)

  21. 21

    Both my 10 year old daughter & I SWOON over him whenever he has a scene on GLEE…LOVE him!

  22. 22

    Team Starkid!

  23. 23

    Love him to bits, he deserves all the fame he's received of late. Super performer. Just wish I could see him live- plus I want his Dalton hoody :D

  24. 24

    Re: scb11104 – Damn right, he deserves it although this better not stop him doing any more starkid shows :( starkid geeks forever

  25. IamB says – reply to this


    The sweatshirt he is wearing is from the actual Dalton School in New York. Not a prop he got from the set.

  26. 26

    He soo looks like a Jonas brother. lol

  27. 27

    Adding to the Darren lovefest - I've been a fan of his for about a year now, ever since I saw A Very Potter Musical on Youtube. He's really talented! And as other have said, he was selling out concerts way before Glee. I'm so happy that he has finally been given the recognition he deserves. Seriously Perez, give credit where credit it due. You'll hawk any no-name loser on your label until you're blue in the face, but won't give a good guy like Darren a chance in the business? Get over yourself. You're not exactly A-List either.

  28. 28



    Gleeks and Harry Potter fans TYVM.

  29. 29

    He is so talented and deserves everything. Its rare to come across someone with the many talents he has. I respect him more then any other artist out there because hes unique and very humble. Darren Criss, May your talent bring you far and all your dreams come true :-) Btw, come perform with my Rocky Horror Cast! your amazing.

  30. 30

    "behold the power of GLEEKS?!" fuck you perez it's more like BEHOLD THE POWER OF STARKID FANS& AVPM & AVPS FANATICS. Gleeks are just now jumping onto Darren Criss' dick…

  31. 31

    I'm going to agree with everyone on this one but I'd like to add that I'm NOT a tween and I see his talent. He's more than just his Glee character (which I think is very appealing to tweens). He's extremely talented musically (plays piano, guitar, violin, etc.) and writes his own music (including all the music/score for a full length musical).
    That's why he's selling out shows.

  32. 32

    more like the power of harry potter

  33. 33

    i went to see him live at the living room in nyc before he was on glee, and it was sold out! (luckily i was one of the first people in line!)
    it's not just the gleeks that are coming out to see him, it's also the avpm fans!

    btw, he is the sweetest guy! he stayed to talk to everyone after the show individually. i wish i could see him again!

  34. 34

    "…but he's not THAT special to be selling out the Roxy!"
    Fuck you, Perez. You wouldn't know talent if it bit you in the ass.

  35. 35

    lol its for sure mostly a very potter musical geek and then a few gleeks
    avpm was a mega hit way before darren was on glee
    millions of people have seen the musical and other starkid productions– he was famous before the attack of the tweens

  36. 36

    Yuo realize he has a massive fan following beyond Glee, right? Have you not watched A Very Potter Musical/Sequel, in which he wrote the majority of the music and lyrics for? He's pretty damn special, and people in the Potter fandom are just glad to finally have a chance to see him perform more frequently. Glee has definitely helped him, but that is not what defines him, it's just what you know him from.

  37. 37

    Well - I am happy he was cast on GLEE cause I never wouldve known him. I love HP but knew nothing about the Potter Musicals….I have spent the past two weeks finding out everything I can about Darren! I am an adult and I just cant get enough of him. He is BEYOND adorable. I have never seen a performer convey such joy when he is singing/playing. He is kind of corny but in a cool way. And the dude can write/compose. Just do look at his performance at the Trevor Project….the song he sang before he did the Katy Perry song….He plays and sings a song called Your Not Alone….its wonderful. He is truly appreciative of where he is and thats so rare. I only wish he was touring the country….I just love him!!!!

  38. 38

    LOL of course hes selling out! Hes supermegafoxyawesomehot xD
    If i were in america i would by all the tickets to his shows, he better bloody come to australia :S
    O and btw, we're not tweens, we're starkids, huge difference :P

  39. 39

    It's because he's SupermegafoxyAWESOMEhot.

    lol. But yeah. Never underestimate the Harry Potter fandom. There's a lot of overlap, but we definitely outnumber Gleeks :P

    "We admit the guy is talented and all and we've loved the stuff he's done on Glee, but he's not THAT special to be selling out the Roxy!"

    Perez Hilton, meet the Darren Criss/Team Starkid Fandom. There's a lot of us, so don't get lost among the crowd.

    (I can't believe I created a profile for this).

  41. 41

    not that special? fuck you perez, he's one of the most talented musicians there is. he's a shitload better than most of the top 40 artists these days, because he can actually sing, he doesn't need to hide behind flashy gimmicks and auto-tune.

  42. 42


  43. 43

    I just wanna say that though he's blowing up because of Glee so many people knew him before that, and there are Harry Potter/Darren Criss fans now watching Glee because of him!

  44. 44

    Its SOOOOOOO not just the Gleeks, sorry, but the STARKIDS are mostly the ones buying out his shows.

  45. 45

    Um, sorry but it's not just Gleeks that are fans of Darren.

    Starkids have known and loved him for almost two years now as Harry Potter in A Very Potter Musical and A Very Potter Sequel. People are saying that he came out of nowhere and instantly had fans which is so wrong. We Starkids have stuck with Darren and all of the other peeps at Starkid Productions for a LOT longer than he's been on Glee!!!!

  46. 46

    hes hot and talented. just read that he's in the philippines right now visiting his folks' family and promoting his music.
