I agree. This was my favorite moment too. It was so unexpected, like you said! And I just fell in love with this live version. He sounds so good, doesn't he? Just felt very nostalgic (about about Glee and Blaine).

I hold so much fondness for Darren playing the character of Hedwig and singing the songs. I agree that they suit him very, very well. I was just thinking about that, that those songs just seem to be perfect for his voice.
What a treat and a surprise to see Journey to the Past performed with Liz Callaway. Sneak attack by Darren!

Yes, I don't think he's played that before (Lin? Lillikoiluv, is that right?). Haha! I guess I didn't think about that, but good point. Cute for him to close a Broadway festival with a Nirvana song.
What I love about ElsieFest so far is he's switching up his setlist from the usual, so we get to hear him perform songs we've never heard him do before.
It seems like he made a special effort to sing news songs for his fans. Very much appreciated, Darren! (Although I also enjoy hearing Teenage Dream and of course, he had to sing Cabaret again for his second Elsie Fest!)
