Darren Criss makes Ellen DeGeneres an honorary Warbler

Posted on

LEGEND ZELDADarren Criss and his finely coiffed friends from Dalton Academy made the talk show rounds this week to promote the release of the Warblers very own album, Glee: The Music Presents The Warblers. The group stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show today to perform “Teenage Dream,” the song that first had us snapping along to their sweet voices. Afterwards Criss managed to charm the pants jacket off host Ellen DeGeneres, as the two talked about his recent road trip to Coachella with costars Chord Overstreet and Harry Shum Jr., his brother (Chuck Criss of Freelance Whales), and his accidental snub of Gwyneth Paltrow. A true gentleman, he capped things off by presenting his fellow blazer enthusiast with the ultimate sign of achievement: her very own Warbler jacket. Check out the performance, as well as Criss’ (shirtless) anti-Blaine look from the music festival, below: 

Sigh. Sweet and kind, just how we like ’em, right PopWatchers? Does this mean Ellen has to guest star now?
