Several Glee cast members, Emmys host Jimmy Fallon, Tina Fey, Betty White, and Jon Hamm were just some of the stars who came together to kick-off the 2010 Emmys with their awesome cover of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." I'm convinced the award-show writers assembled this TV dream-team specifically with me in mind. Many of my favorite TV shows were represented, including Glee of course.
The show that once reminded viewers to "Don't Stop Believin'" arrived at the 2010 Emmys after a whirlwind first season which included a live tour and performances at the World Series and the White House. The Emmy opening performance demonstrated the impact one-time underdog Glee has had on television and popular culture in just one year.
I couldn't imagine a more perfect way for the Glee cast and crew to complete that year than to share the Emmy stage and accept the award for Outstanding Comedy Series. While that honor ultimately went to Modern Family, the Academy recognized Glee with awards for Ryan Murphy, the show's wunderkind creator and director, and Jane Lynch, who portrays the glee club's zany antagonist Sue Sylvester. The Glee team celebrated these accolades as their own, demonstrating the grace and heart central to their success.
