After the full season buildup, it was finally sectionals. Mr. Shue was banned from the competition, Sue Sylvester had given the competing teams the set list, and now the kids had to band together and come up with a winning set on the fly. The moment the always-a-diva Rachel appeared at the back of the auditorium belting out, "Don't tell me not to live, just sit and putter..." chills ran up and down our spines. Rachel finally got her well-deserved turn in the spotlight (especially after her selfless act of giving the solo spot to Mercedes). We're guessing Barbra herself was floored by Lea Michele's performance of "Don't Rain on My Parade." The cutaways to Mr. Shue's tears of joy via cellphone and even the audience's seemingly genuine surprised reaction to the performance (the best extras in the biz!) proved to us that TV might not always give us what we want, but "Glee" always gives us what we need.
