Stars Lea Michele, Chris Colfer, Chord Overstreet, Jenna Ushkowitz, and Darren Criss appeared on the Thursday, March 12 episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show to talk about taping the emotional finale.

“We were watching Matt Morrison sing us all a song so we were very much in our own world experiencing this,” Criss, 28, said of the final scene they filmed. “And one take they pulled a fast one on us, they took Matt out of it and put basically the entire crew and production there looking at us.”
