Darren's Best 'Glee' Songs
Relive the finest Criss musical moments!
Glee guy Darren Criss was a little star struck himself on Monday night when he was asked to perform for Oscar winning writer Alan Menken, who received the 2011 Maestro Award at the Billboard/Hollywood Reporter Film & TV Music Conference. 

Darren first did an acoustic spoof of some of Alan’s Disney songs, before performing a lovely duet of “Part of Your World” with Lea Salonga. Can all Leas sing?! Darren tweeted his excitement, writing: 

 “I am beside myself with joy. I got to sing with @MsLeaSalonga for one of my musical idols, @AlMenken today.”

This isn’t the first time the actor/singer has performed a song like this.

Before he was famous, Darren would upload videos of himself performing, and he even sang the Little Mermaid tune “Part of Your World.” It’s all very Justin Bieber of him! Check out one of his renditions below!
