[YOUTUBE "qaqVwlkTENc"] Many faces have passed through the halls of William McKinley High School.
On Glee's series finale Friday, an impressive number of the show's alums – not to mention some of its more memorable fashion fads and cultural touchstones – appeared in Lima for one last song and dance.
Here are a few of the highlights from the welcome returns, quirky character traits and celebrity cameos from Glee's two-hour finale.

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.

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.

However, even superstars need their first big break – see below for the very first auditions from your Glee faves.

Glee's Jenna Ushkowitz, Project X's Miles Teller and former Gossip Girl actress Jessica Szohr all visited Hollywood hotspot Blok on Tuesday night.
Szohr, Teller and Ushkowitz arrived around 1:15 a.m. and headed straight for the dance floor.
"They had some cocktails and danced until the club closed," an onlooker tells PEOPLE.
Szohr and Teller will costar in the upcoming indie romantic comedy Two Night Stand.
The trio of friends weren't the only big names spotted at the club. On Friday, Sofia Vergara, rumored fiancé Nick Loeb visited.
"Sofia came in with Nick and a few friends. They were very cute, holding hands and dancing at their table," a source says. "She was taking pictures and having a great time."

Fresh off the plane from N.Y.C. on Wednesday, Joe Jonas wasted no time getting back into the L.A. party circuit, heading downtown for the Absolut Greyhound vodka bash at the Belasco, where he joined other celebrities, including Nicole Scherzinger, Joel Madden and Glee's Jenna Ushkowitz, who was there with her Vampire Diaries beau Michael Trevino.
Taking in the sounds of DJ Politik and Swedish House Mafia, Jonas sipped on the signature cocktails of the night and hung out with his guy friends, including a member of his band.
"Girls came up to his table the whole time he was there," a source tells PEOPLE. "He was polite, but he mainly just stuck to his guys the entire night."
