Glee Series Finale: Ranking the Songs

Originally posted 03/21/2015 12:55AM

Glee wrapped its six-season run Friday night with a two-hour finale that evoked the best of the show's early days.

Twelve songs – ranging from the saccharine to the sublime – figured into the night's two episodes, "2009" and "Dreams Come True." Some provided character insight, some tugged at the heartstrings, and some were pure expressions of joy.

While the show was creatively as good as its been in a long time during its closing installment, some songs succeeded more than others. Below, our take on how each tune fared.

Glee Series Finale Recap: The New Directions Don't Stop Believin' for One Minute

Originally posted 03/20/2015 11:25PM

Over its six seasons, Glee has consistently proven that it can stick a landing, and the series finale was the absolute epitome of the scrappy musical dramedy's ability to obliterate the memory of the bumpy road behind with one revelatory moment of heart-pumping, tear-jerking, can't-stop-yourself-from-smiling, singing-and-dancing glory.

The series's two-hour finale appropriately ended with One Republic's anthemic feel-good tune "I Lived." Indeed, the show "did it all." It was, for better or (often) worse just as messy and ridiculous as life – but, in its best moments, also as uplifting and powerful.

Considering how wildly uneven Glee has been for, well, most of its run, the ending turned out to be pretty darn near pitch-perfect.

More specifically, Murphy addresses Lea Michele's reported feud with costar Naya Rivera, who apparently got booted from the show for poor behavior on set.

Chris Colfer leaves the headline-making to his costars.

The Glee star, 23, told PEOPLE on Friday that he makes "a great deal of effort" to stay out of the controversy that some of his castmates have unfortunately been unable to avoid.

"It's really sad," he said. "I've seen some of my closest friends on Glee go through where these horrible things are written about them and none of it is true, but some reporter wants to get a hit, they say so-and-so is a raging bitch."
