'Glee' Recap: Who Was Crowned Prom Queen?

Senior prom has finally arrived — and it’s dinosaur-themed! Find out who took home the crown!

On the May 8 episode of Glee, the New Directions celebrated their senior prom — and did a little growing up.

After blowing her big audition, Rachel (Lea Michele) tried consoling herself with the thought of dancing with Finn (Cory Monteith) at their senior prom. But when she learned Finn and Quinn (Dianna Agron) were campaigning together for prom king and queen — Rachel wasn’t even nominated — she totally overreacted, Rachel Berry-style.

With Kurt (Chris Colfer) and Blaine (Darren Criss) in her corner, Rachel decided to throw an anti-prom for those disenfranchised by the actual prom. (Seriously, Rachel was born to be a stage actress. She is so melodramatic!) Kurt agreed to attend because he was worried he would be voted prom queen again, while Blaine was put off by President Brittany’s (Heather Morris) nonsensical ban on hair gel. Santana (Naya Rivera) called Rachel out for being petty, labelling her “a selfish, self-centered, lameass wannabe diva from hell.” A little harsh, sure, but not wrong.

Despite making huge strides in physiotherapy, Quinn insisted Joe (Samuel Larsen) not tell anyone until she was ready. In the meantime, Quinn used her condition to win votes for prom queen. At prom, Finn threatened to walk out on Quinn after finding her standing up in the bathroom. Quinn begged him to stay, but when Finn asked her to stand up and dance in front of everybody, Quinn refused, so Finn left to be with Rachel.

Finn showed up at what had to be the lamest anti-prom ever (total attendance: 5) and convinced Rachel — who looked absolutely gorgeous in her dress, by the way — and the others to go to the real prom. Puck and Becky stayed behind, engaging in a little game of strip poker. In a sweet moment, Puck crowned Becky queen of the anti-prom and escorted her to the real prom.

Back at the prom, Rachel apologized to Quinn for being jealous and told her how happy she was to have her as a friend. Later on, while nominees Santana and Quinn were counting the ballots — to keep things legit — we learned Ms. Fabray had won by one vote. Cut back to the gym, where Principal Figgins (Iqbal Theba) was announcing the winners. Finn was crowned prom king (no surprise there), but when prom queen was announced, Rachel’s name was called out! I guess Santana and Quinn realized there are more important things than winning a popularity contest.

What did you think of tonight’s episode, HollywoodLifers? Were the right students crowned king and queen? See you in the comments section!

I completely agree. Rachel (my favorite) was being her over dramatic self and I loved it! She looked absolutely gorgeous! Finn got on my nerves. BTW – He also looked gorgeous! He should have understood why she was feeling so down on her self and stayed with her, not Quinn. He did redeem himself in the end though.

I really enjoyed this episode and I love that Rachel was named prom queen!!

Why not Kurt as Prom Queen again ? Joking… Don’t want to see Kurt humiliated again.

I wish Quinn was Prom Queen despite the pity vote. I can understand how she felt… She was still too weak to be on her feet during the whole prom, so it was necessary for her to be in the wheelchair anyway. So I don’t really agree with Finn who thinks that she was manipulative. It just takes time before someone is back on her feet.

Just like Rachel, it took her one episode before she was back on her feet… from the Nyada debacle…
