Gauging by their slightly off-key performance and their incredulous Tweets, the Glee kids were completely starstruck to be in President Obama’s orbit – and in his house!
Don’t stop believing miracles happen, BFF’s — because dreams really do come true. Just ask the cast of Glee, who performed Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin'” at the White House’s Easter Egg Roll April 5.
After watching cast members Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Jenna Ushkowitz, Dianna Agron, Mark Salling, Chris Colfer, Amber Riley, Kevin McHale and Harry Shum Jr. charmingly stumble through their performance on the South Lawn, we have to say that we feel their pain! WE’D be nervous if we were singing for the President, wife Michelle and children Sasha and Malia, too!
But at least the cast enjoyed their experience, if their tweets are any indication.
“Inside the white house. no big deal. this was after we met the president. also, no big deal,” wrote 27-year-old Cory Monteith, who tweeted a photo of himself posing inside the President’s home.
Wrote Chris Colfer, 19, “I feel like today was a dream! I met the President of the United States, JK Rowling, and Ellen’s Mom Betty DeGeneres! so surreal!”
Added Dianna Agron, 23, “Just when things couldn’t get crazier…we met Obama & family, including Beau. They couldn’t have been more charming or kind. Surreal.”
Jenna Ushkowitz, 23, tweeted, “Sang at the White house, watched @msamberrileykill the national anthem on the WH balcony and met the OBAMAs!!!! What?!?!?! Best Day Ever.”
Kevin McHale, 21, summed up his experience at the White House nicely, writing, “Best day ever! Don’t even have the words.”
