Oh, don't mind that sound, it's just the noise from our hearts shattering into a million pieces!
If you watched the New Directions' performance of I Still Haven't Found What I Was Looking For (above), you know what we were talking about!
When his mother Carol has a revelation and realizes the New Directions are performing all of Finn's favorite songs at Nationals, cue the tears!
But before we all relived those wonderful memories with Finn in the choir room, Glee started off on a happy note with Mr. Shue announcing their trek across the country with Carol and Burt in the form of a song! Duh! And of course all of our favorite Gleeks followed suit, living out their dreams in the City of Angels with I Love LA!
Here come the Nationals performances! The New Directions started off their set by performing More Than A Feeling, with Tina & Blaine taking the duet lead. Of course they're no Rachel & Finn, but that doesn't mean the senior duo didn't have what it takes to blow everyone away!
Moving on to America, this one was more of a group effort with mini solos from Artie, Sam, Kitty, and the rest of the New Directions.
And here we have the performances from the New Directions' rivals at Nationals, but let's be honest here, do they really matter? Ha! We're totally kidding. The kids at McKinley High definitely had their great moments on stage, but the ones that really stole the show? Throat Explosion with their stellar medley of Mr. Roboto/Counting Stars! Skylar Astin really steals the show with this one.
The New Directions' other competition, The Go-Gos, did a number with the classic Vacation, which was totally fitting for the episode. Seeing as how the Gleeks traveled from tiny Lima, Ohio to the City of Angels, it was somewhat a mini, well-deserved vaycay for the kids!
