Darren Criss Looking Hot At Broadway.com Audience Choice Awards [PHOTOS]

May 14th, 2012 // Leave a Comment

After a successful run run on Broadway in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, Glee’s golden boy, Darren Criss, was been tapped to host the 13th-annual Broadway.com Audience Choice Awards in New York which took place last night.

On Glee, Darren and Matt Bomer performed a rendition of Gotye’s runaway hit song “Somebody That I Used to Know” on April 10th’s episode, they weren’t quite expecting a diss from Gotye himself.

HLNs Showbiz Tonight reports that in the wake of the performance, Gotye commented to The Sunday Mail saying that the Glee version was “dinky and wrong.”

However, Criss and Bomer have responded no less than graciously to the singer’s views on their duet version of the song. On the red carpet of the Met Costume Institute Gala this past Monday night, Criss said, “That’s a common example of the media running away with something I think was completely harmless.” 

He added, “I’ve been a long time Gotye fan…The fact that Gotye even knows who I am and what my name is, I am super thrilled.”

“I was not mad or disturbed at all by what he said…He’s allowed to say whatever he wants.”

Bomer also commented on Gotye’s comments, saying that “art is totally subjective.”

Following the fallout from Gotye’s response to the duet, the singer clarified his thoughts at a concert in Los Angeles, saying that he was referring to his own song as “dinky” and that he actually thought the Criss-Bomer collaboration was “clever” and a “great idea.”

    Nick Jonas or Darren Chris? Both super talented, but the audience proved to the producers How to Succeed on Broadway and how NOT to. Kudos Darren Criss!
