Um…. What did we just watch?
Was that… flirting? Was that… a new romance? HOLD THE MEGAPHONE!!!!
We’ve been waiting probably since Glee did their Madonna tribute episode for them to get around to paying homage to the great Piano Man himself, Billy Joel. With an episode serenade from Darren Criss on the piano and a song that was basically written for Matthew Morrison to belt, the music did not disappoint.
HOWEVER, something seemingly started to develop between two characters that we didn’t very much think was possible… and one of those character’s is Lea Michele’s Rachel Berry.
Yeah, things took a sudden turn last night and to find out more, you’re going to just have to jump into our recap (below).
WARNING: THERE ARE BIG SPOILERS AHEAD AND MORE THAN A FEW ?!?!?!?!? REACTIONS. IF YOU THINK YOU CAN HANDLE IT, KEEP ON READING. IF NOT, CARRY ON AWAY FROM THIS PLACE.

Princess Jasmine, erm, we mean Lea Salonga surprised the patrons of Marie's Crisis in NYC with a special duet of A Whole New World with Darren Criss!!
