Glee - Spring Superlatives

It's hard to believe it's only been a year since the birth of McKinley High School's New Directions and the Gleek Revolution. With four chart-topping albums, a nationwide tour and millions upon millions of fans, it doesn't feel like Glee only just finished its first season.

After last fall's "Sectionals" mid-season finale we suffered through a harsh, cold winter, with only a bleak and tragically boring season of American Idol to keep us warm. April 13th did not come a second too soon and with "Hell-O," the back nine episodes began. Madonna! Gaga! Idina! Kurt's dad! Funk...?

As with the fall, here are the Spring Superlatives. The best of the best. To be sure, there were some incredibly difficult decisions. The decisions were so difficult, in fact, that an Honorable Mention category has been added this time around. Chances are you probably won't agree with some (most? all?) of these recipients. But trust that just because it doesn't appear on this list doesn't mean that it isn't loved or that it won't appear in next week's full season yearbook (a.k.a. Thunderclap 2010).

So, without further ado...
