Jimmy Fallon hosted the awards, which meant that there was no shortage of jokes, musical numbers or costume changes. Here, he dressed like none other than Sir Elton John.

Fallon opened the show with a big musical number (you know, because Glee was such a huge deal) and even got slushied by Coach Sue Sylvester (a.k.a. Jane Lynch).

He sang "Born to Run" alongside everyone from Tina Fey to Jon Hamm and told Kate Gosselin that she couldn't join his glee club. Oh, and Randy Jackson also showed up to play guitar with him. Times were simpler then.
