Been Missing 'Glee' Lately? Lea Michele And Darren Criss Come To Your Rescue With Two New Duets.

Gleeks unite!

Lea Michele and Darren Criss reunited last night, and gave us a Glee mini-reunion — with a Facebook Live video and, later, two duets — that is giving us so many feels.

Michele is busy promoting her upcoming album, Places (dropping April 28), and joined up with Criss to discuss a variety of topics. Turns out these two are BFFs in the real world — revealing that they listen to each other's music — and had a lot to catch up about.


In addition to chatting about their current projects — her solo career and his work with his band Computer Games — they revealed some tidbits about their time on the hit Fox musical dramedy. For example, Michele still watches the show; the song that reminds Criss most of his former co-star is Funny Girl's "Don't Rain on My Parade"; and they have plenty of songs they wish could be covered on Glee — such as Rachel Platten's "Fight Song," Lorde's "Green Light," and The Weeknd's "I Can't Feel My Face," to name a few.

Check out the full Facebook Live for even more nostalgic goodness, and to hear more about their musical process and inspirations:

While all of that is grand, the real surprise came in the final minutes of the video when the two revealed that they'd be releasing some new duets online today. Michele and Criss made quick work of things and already both of these musical moments have been released. 

The first is a stunning performance of is "Getaway Car," one of Michele's songs off Places.

The other was a big throwback to Glee and the first time their characters, Rachel Berry and Blaine Anderson, sang together. It was a cover of The Human League's "Don't You Want Me" from the season 2 episode titled "Blame It on the Alcohol," which aired in 2011.

For reference, here's that epic TV performance:
