I honestly think he deserved it, I really do. Did you watch that Episode 3 of Season 2 of Glee? Grilled Cheesus? I basically bawled through the entire thing, and it was thanks to him. I can't even listen to his rendition of I Wanna Hold Your Hand without at least tearing up.
He seemed so stunned to have won, which is unbelievably endearing. Also, the fact that his cast members looked so genuinely overjoyed for him (Lea cried!) was touching; I was in tears the minute Don't Stop Believin' started playing, even before he got to the podium. His speech was lovely and he just seems like the sweetest person ever.
Congratulations, Chris! We're proud of you!
