DSB:

JellyRolls I suspect that it's for the Season  One pilot  version, since I do know that a few years ago it had already achieved platinum status...

I doubt if Season 4 and Seasons 5 had as much as 20-25,000 in sales, if that.

now that the show is over, people can finally talk about it truthfully. i mean, one doesn't exactly bash the show their are on and get payed for it. no, with nor fear of potential penalties, financial or otherwise, actors can be more sincere, but honestly unless someone is totally butt hurt about it i doubt we will get outright bashing. glee made those people famous, house hold names and opened so many opportunities. it would be kind of ungrateful. that would be the fastest way to destroy your carrier.

The Glee shade season has started.  bubgum
Matt is only telling the cold hard truth, it was Ryan's stupid idea that he could fire the old cast and repopulate the choir room with weak copies that no doubt caused a big dent in the ratings.

Glee comes to an end tonight — six seasons, 15 albums, and seven EPs after its debut. The cast’s success on the charts paved the way for the musical crossover of shows like Empire and Nashville — but, out of all the classic Glee covers, which did fans love (and buy) the most?
Here are the top ten most downloaded Glee original cast recordings, according to Nielsen Music.
10. “Poker Face” (410,000 downloads)
9. “Rumor Has It/Someone Like You” (413,000 downloads)
8. “Somebody To Love” (418,000 downloads)
7. “We Are Young” (455,000 downloads)
6. “Singing In The Rain/Umbrella (ft. Gwyneth Paltrow)” (492,000 downloads)
5. “Defying Gravity” (529,000 downloads)
4. “Loser Like Me” (617,000 downloads)
3. “Teenage Dream” (652,000 downloads)
2. “Forget You (ft. Gwyneth Paltrow)” (783,000 downloads)
1. “Don’t Stop Believin’” (1,422,000 downloads)


Absolutely NOTHING after Season 3, what a shocker...

It's so cool that Chris got a gold record selling song from Glee!
And only 1 song from mythical "iTunes seller" Darren. moque
There are 4 songs from season 1, also 4 from season 2, and 2 from season 3.

@DarrenCriss #ThisTime that we had I will hold forever @GLEEonFOX


@Michael_MacRae The #glee peeps. I miss u all!


Behind the Scenes on Glee’s Final Days

And even more shade:
Jane Lynch: It’s like emotional whiplash, my character. I have that redemption scene with Matt: ‘I want to be your friend, I’m jealous of you.’ I had that scene six times.
Matthew Morrison: They have so many things that we don’t even talk about. Sue having a child. We’re always like … I forget the baby’s name right now. Where’s Wanda, or whatever its name is?

Hopefully we get a full breakdown of all digital sales now that Glee is over.

I suspect there are at least 50-75 songs from the first 3 seasons that got over 100,000 in download sales.

BTW since Chris was Grammy nominated as part of "Don't stop believing", technically he's part of a platinum record also. Razz

“Yet he admits the show may have overstayed its welcome on the air. “Glee had its heyday, and then it kind of just slowly started declining,” ending up on Friday nights, “which no one watches. It’s where shows go to die.” He ofers, “There were just so many characters. There are a lot of people and a lot of story lines. It’s one of the biggest casts on television. They have the New Directions, the original New Directions, and then you have the new New Directions … The new ones didn’t really click with people, so they had to start bringing back in the old people.””

Matthew Morrison (BroadwayWorld)

Haha  I guess as he's not attached to glee,he is free to say more stuff.

“But what really made Glee the best show ever—both for those of who knew what was happening at the time and for those who were clueless they were bearing witness to a TV revolution—was, as Peitzman rightfully points out, how soooo gay it was.

More, for all the talk of the role a show like Will and Grace played in changing the minds of the nation when it comes to gay rights, Glee broke down another barrier: making them comfortable with the idea of gay teens.
It’s interesting to think how a character like Kurt might be embraced if he was debuting on TV now, as opposed to six years ago.

Diversity on TV today is all about normalization, creating a fictional mirror to reality that reveals, as in life, people of all colors and sexualities exist on a spectrum as varied and complicated as white, straight people have always been allowed to exist on for decades. The groundbreaking thing about Kurt, and Glee in general, was that his flamboyance and fabulousness was meant to set him apart. It was because he was different that he was embraced.

His message was to design your own, absolutely fierce freak flag, and proudly wave it high. An act so simple, while polarizing, is enough to change people perceptions about you and your fellow freak-flag waving brethren.
Funnily enough, considering how progressive his storyline was at the time, Kurt might actually seem retrograde today, when the Jamals of Empire and the Conors of How to Get Away With Murder are out to prove they’re not defined exclusively by their gayness. Kurt never was either, but there’s a discernible difference between what we hoped for in our LGBT characters then and what demand of them now. Of course, no gay character currently on TV could exist the way they are if it were not for Kurt paving the way.”

There was a scene in "Hold on to 16" that I still remember clearly...it was Kurt, Santana, Blaine, Brittany confronting Sebastian, with a Seb/flashback scene with Karofsky, and I remember thinking "Damn, that's 6 gay/bi characters casually thrown in in a  scene together."  For all that Glee went downhill, there was something with how Glee showed representation at it's best.

There is also my all time favorite Kurt group number "The Happening" where the band "One three Hill" was just Kurt, Elliot and Danni, who incidentally just happened to all be gay. No plot point was ever made of that, which spoke volumes.

“The biggest gift Glee gave the gay community was, of course, Kurt Hummel. Played with sweet charm by Chris Colfer, the fashion-forward soprano singer glided into the hearts of America in season one. He was the rare gay character that wasn’t a sidekick. Yes, he embodied a lot of what some would call “stereotypical gay behavior,” but there are plenty of boys out there who actually do love Liza and Judy and ascots and anti-aging skin regimens. And those boys don’t often get to see their stories treated with the kindness, depth and care bestowed on Kurt.”

What is funny the media are critising Glee but also praising Chris/Kurt. Razz 

Nothing about Klaine from most of them, just Kurt.

I hope Chris is able to get on-line and read these publications, because I am sure he would love what is being said. wub

I saw it. It was a short interview with him and Lea, and then one with Cory and Lea.

It has always been my feeling that the only thing really remembered about Glee in 10 years, other than it's absolute self-destruction by showrunners who ceased to give a crap, is the ever wonderful Kurt Hummel. No matter how much they tried to ignore him the past few seasons, and give all the stories or at least scenes to others, Kurt and Chris are what stands out.

It is so heartwarming that even now the media/critics are recalling the Glory days of Glee with the character of Kurt Hummel and Chris extraordinary acting.

I have the feeling when people mention Glee in the future,Kurt will be the first to come in mind, and Rachel and Finn in second,and so on. Overall GA will remember mostly season one and two,probably season three,and luckily the other seasons.
