15 Times Darren Criss OWNED 2013

You have to admit, the dude was everywhere. Totally not complaining!

1. When he sang from the soul at the Kids’ Inaugural Concert

“Not Alone” written by Darren Criss and accompanied by Walt Whitman’s Soul Children of Chicago.

And then fist-bumped the President

2. There was that time he made us laugh at the 2013 SAG Awards

3. He looked gorgeous on the cover of Essential Homme Magazine

Essential Homme Magazine

4. Was voted 1/2 of of EW’s “Best TV Couple of All Time”

The people spoke and they love them some Klaine!

5. Became an honorary member of the Yale Whiffenpoofs

6. Then he totally crashed a Hanson rehearsal

He’s been “stalking them for years”.

7. His first North American tour SOLD OUT!

With venues such as various House of Blues and NYC’s Roseland Ballroom (RIP).

And he absolutely CRUSHED IT!

Not to mention this adorableness when a special guest stopped by

8. There was the release of his first major motion picture

Guyliner was involved


I want HIM that way.

9. He took part in PBS’ Capitol Fourth Celebration

Because he is a national treasure!

10. He co-hosted the 2013 Teen Choice Awards with Lucy Hale

Where he got Harry Styles to twerk that ass

And did some twerking himself

In a onesie. Because he doesn’t give a single f**ck.

11. He went on to host We Day Toronto

Awww! It’s mini-Darren.

12. Teamed up with the creative crew of The Motley

He’s now the face and “high-level lab rat” for the brand.

13. Then there was the time when he announced the People’s Choice Award nominations

Where he was nominated in FOUR categories!

Darren Criss: Comedic TV Actor
Blaine/Sam: TV Bromance
Kurt/Blaine: On-Screen Chemistry
Glee: Network TV Comedy

And got so adorably excited


14. He joined Cher Lloyd and Andrew Schulz as a host of the MTV EMA Kick-Off Show

He always looks so dapper.

15. And appeared in HBO’s Six by Sondheim

A documentary exploring the great Stephen Sondheim’s life and work.

So it’s no shocker he’s one of Tumblr’s most reblogged actors of 2013

Now let’s hope for EVEN MORE Darren in 2014!
