Wow!! Should we all have seen this coming all along?!
However, could they have been plotting the 22-year-old's sudden 1D exodus for a while??

So. Many. Emotions.
After many grueling months of drama and rehearsals for Funny Girl, we finally get to see Lea Michele in all her Fanny Brice glory!
Well, okay, it wasn't actually Lea Michele playing Fanny Brice, it was Princess Lea as Rachel Berry playing Fanny Brice on Glee.
Got it? Lolz!
Jane Lynch is getting much more singing time!
While Rachel was performing Who Are You Now on stage (above), Sue sang alongside her at a restaurant next to her new found NYC love! Meanwhile Rachel called on Finn in her heart and mind to help her dig up the emotion she needed to nail this incredible performance.
Before her opening night, Rachel had a nightmare where she found herself back on the old McKinley high stage with many of her Glee clubbers in their old high school garbs. Like, Blaine in his old Warbler uniform, Tina with her fake stutter, and well, you get the deal. Rachel was back to the old Rachel Berry we all know and love with her animal sweaters and plaid skirts, she stood on that stage and sang Lovefool!
The first number of the night, I'm the Greatest Star, which was perfect and fitting for our favorite Jewish Glee star! The tiny starlet sang her heart out with so much confidence on that Broadway stage!
After a successful first night of Funny Girl on the Great White Way, the Glee gang took their star out for a celebration! Even though they didn't how the show fared with the critics, Kurt convinced Rachel to celebrate and party the night away. So, in Glee tradition, the gang celebrated the only way they know best, in song! Rachel, Mercedes and Santana performed Pumpin' Blood at the club they were at and the rest of the night was history!
