Actually, Dianna Agron, Jayma Mays, Jessalyn Gilsig, Lea Michele, and Mike O'Malley weren't present at the panel.
Ryan Murphy was also joined by Creators/Producers Brad Falchuck, Ian Brennan and Dante Di Loreto. Darren Criss (Blaine) also joined the cast for the panel.
Prior to the panel, they screened the 16th episode, Original Song, of the 2nd season. I was really hoping they would've showed something I haven't seen but I enjoyed re-watching the episode, especially with a crowd full of gleeks.
The discussion was fun. The whole panel was nice. They discussed the original songs, the upcoming tour, the glee reality show, Gwyneth Paltrow, Ashley Fink, Santana being a lesbian, filming the rest of the season, possibly having Blaine change schools to McKinley in the 3rd season, a Fleetwood Mac RUMOURS episode, and more spoilers.
This event was a little over a week ago, so sorry for lagging on posting about it. I was searching for reviews of the glee panel and I found this real cool website called GLEEhab. Am I lame for not finding it sooner? Possibly :) but I found it and they combined several sources into one post; pictures & videos too. So please direct yourself there for more information on this event.
As soon as the panel ended, everybody rushed the stage for autographs! Luckily, my niece and I got a good spot to get autographs. I was disappointed that several of the gleeks hurried off the stage, including Cory Monteith, but who am I to judge? Maybe they had things to attend to.
I am forever grateful to the gleeks that stayed after to sign autographs for fans. I know it could be overwhelming with all the fans. What I want to know is why does their publicist stand behind them and try to get them to leave?
I also wanted to give mad props to Matthew Morrison for staying til the very end and making sure that he signed everything. Super nice & sweet!
