VIDEO: Darren Criss Sings 'Call Me Maybe' at GLAAD Awards
GLAAD Media Awards
Criss told the crowd he planned to sing a classic jazz standard for the event until he received a text message from Carly Rae Jepsen which read 'Criss, you have to sing the original lyrics to my song." While the Glee star was a little uncertain at first, he decided to follow her advice and sing the song which turned into a true crowd pleaser.
Among those in attendance at the awards were President Bill Clinton, Harvey Weinstein, Jennifer Lawrence (The Hunger Games) host Drew Barrymore, Kelly Rowland; Leonardo DiCaprio (Inception, Django Unchained); Charlize Theron (Monster); Andrew Rannells, Justin Bartha, Jayson Blair and Georgia King (The New Normal); Chaz Bono (Dancing with the Stars, Being Chaz) and Ryan Murphy.
