This is in the new TV Guide for 3/10-3/23
The whole page is Glee and has the following quote from Darren:
Although Criss says he was jazzed to “have all the gang back together,” he was worried about tackling songs his costars crushed the first time around. “The numbers that were great were great because of the people who did them. I don’t want to be screwing up someone else’s number!” Criss is thankful that the songs fans most wanted to hear again won’t be cookie-cutter remakes. “We’re doing different versions of them and re-celebrating them.”

- "When Blaine proposed to Kurt in Glee”
Glee’s current season kicked off with the engagement of fan favorite couple Kurt and Blaine. Blaine arranges a surprise musical proposal at Dalton Academy, where the couple first met as Blaine serenaded Kurt with “Teenage Dream.” For the proposal, Blaine is backed by four choirs and the visiting Rachel, Santana and Mercedes, while singing “All You Need is Love” with a bit of pronoun-altered “he loves you” at the end. Once Kurt is standing in the exact spot they met, Blaine asks Kurt to marry him and Kurt (of course) says yes.

Currently starring as Blaine on the Emmy-Award winning Fox television series Glee, singer/songwriter Darren Criss first participated in Musicians On Call’s Bedside Performance Program last fall at Mattel Children’s Hospital, UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles. Darren was accompanied on guitar during this visit by his friend Tom Poleman, Chairperson Emeritus of Musicians On Call’s Board of Directors and Clear Channel Media+ Entertainments President of National Programming Platforms. Although Darren had many other commitments that day, he ended up staying for hours to play for the young patients and their families, and immediately asked how soon he could come back to do it again.
"I enjoy Musicians On Call because it strips down the performing aspect of music to its most basic function - to share, to heal, to inspire," says Darren. "It’s just you and another person sharing an intimate moment that is actually bigger than the both of you."
Darren started off the new year with another visit to the same hospital, spending several more hours with the kids. Then he became a man on a mission, determined to share the healing power of music with as many people as possible! Next up, he’s generously lending his advocacy to Musicians On Call through an outdoor advertising campaign that will begin running in NYC on February 10.
And he wanted to do even more than that, so through his Prizeo Birthday Campaign, he’s encouraging his fans to help Musicians On Call raise funds to expand the number of facilities and patients it is able to serve every week.
