Taking it back full circle, the glee club stormed the stage performing a medley of Journey's biggest hits, including "Faithfully", "Any Way You Want It", "Lovin', Touchin' Squeezin'" and of course, "Don't Stop Believing." But before they could even savor their showing, Quinn's water broke and the team raced to the hospital.
Cut with footage of Vocal Adrenaline performing Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody," Quinn delivered a baby girl named Beth, while Rachel, who stayed behind to watch the competition, approached birth mom Shelby with a proposition – come teach at McKinley. But much like their last conversation, Shelby said she regretted missing her chance to raise Rachel, and instead wanted a family of her own. Apparently meaning sooner rather than later, Shelby quit coaching glee and adopted Quinn's daughter.
Back at the judging, Sue faced off against returning guest-stars Olivia Newton-John and Josh Groban. Though she originally wanted to ensure New Directions' defeat, the queen of mean changed her tune after having been made to feel inferior, and instead voted for McKinley High to take top prize. But her last-minute change of heart proved too little, too late, and Vocal Adrenaline was crowned champions, with Aural Intensity placing second.
Resigned to their fate, the glee club packed it in and prepared for another year of school without each other and their leader Mr. Schuester. But in a surprising showing of heart, Sue saved the day by convincing Principal Figgins to give the club another year. ''You're a good teacher, Will," she admitted. "I admire you, and the work you're doing with your kids.'' With New Directions gaining a second chance, could a championship be in the cards for Glee's second season? –Kiran Hefa
