We’re swooning over the sexy ‘Glee’ star’s sweet version of Katy Perry’s big hit!

Listen up, Gleeks! Darren Criss — who plays prepster Blaine — belted out a big birthday surprise for Perez Hilton at his Blue Ball Birthday Bash in LA on March 26.

Darren, 24, serenaded party-goers with a mellow version of Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream” – the song that made him an instant hit with Glee fans as Kurt’s new crush after premiering back in November.

Darren also wooed fans at the party on guitar with an acoustic rendition of his own song “Human,” which was released on iTunes last July. While we love hearing his “Glee” mashups every week, it’s nice to hear Darren sing an original for a change.

And Darren’s performance sure hit a high note for the birthday boy, Perez!

Do you like Darren’s Katy cover better, or his original tune? Vote in our poll!

I would pick an original song but I just have never liked ‘Human’.

That. Was. Intense. I get goosebumps every time he sings…

I vote for the original Human. Not that Darren’s cover of TD isn’t appeal. But originals are always larger. And Darren is an amazing song writer.
