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

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.

For many, it was a decidedly un-gleeful morning in LA.

Less than two weeks after the shocking death of Cory Monteith, friends and costars of the actor, including his girlfriend Lea Michele, reunited for a memorial on the Paramount studio lot, where Glee's auditorium scenes are filmed.

Michele joined producer Ryan Murphy and costars including Kevin McHale and Darren Criss at the indoor/outdoor event where guests mingled, dined on buffet food and listened to Glee-appropriate tunes like "Good Vibrations" in Monteith's honor.

Blok party!

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."
