Can you think of a better way to help bring things to a close???
Glee‘s finale is set to air on Friday, and that means we’ll hear Lea Michele‘s final ballad! The song, This Time, was written by her co-star Darren Criss. During PaleyFest, Criss talked about what went into the song, saying:
“I wrote This Time as a love note to all things Glee. The show itself, the emotions of the people leaving it├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥both the characters and the actors themselves, the effect it had on everyone ├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥ I tried to cram all these ideas into a single person’s narrative. I wanted Rachel’s words to encapsulate not only her own personal journey, but everyone’s experience of being a part of this show├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥whether you were behind the camera, in front of the camera, or watching it at home for these past few years. Hearing Lea sing this song was a really cathartic moment for me. It was a perfect way to say goodbye to the whole experience, and I really look forward to getting to share it with the world. I hope This Time will resonate with as many people watching Glee as it did for me and those of us who had a hand in making it.”
Wow! So much emotion, but how could there not be?!
