Glee’s Darren Criss on Voice 2013 Contestant: I Was Totally “Into” Her!
Glee heartthrob Darren Criss (Blaine) has taken to Twitter to reveal that he went to college with one of the contestants on The Voice 2013 — and he was totally into her back in the day.
So just who is the lucky lady? That would be none other than Michelle Chamuel, the bespectacled rocker from Ann Arbor, Michigan. Both Michelle and Darren went to college at the University of Michigan, and the Glee star can’t stop singing her praises.
“So glad @Usher's as into college pal @MichelleChamuel as I was in school. She was killin it then, she's killin it now. Good choice. #GoBlue” he tweeted on June 5.
He then mused about how “insane” it was to see his college pal in the same room as music greats like Taylor Swift and Usher. “#mindBLOWN” he wrote.
Darren is currently on a nationwide concert tour, and almost all the members of his band are fellow U of M alums. “What a joy to be with all my Ann Arbor music scene buddies on our tour bus, celebrating@MichelleChamuel & freaking out! #TheVoice” he wrote.
Michelle later wrote back, “Hey @DarrenCriss! Thank you for your love and support. Huge hugs and wish you a wonderful tour. HOPE TO SEE YOU IN BOSTON :D. You = the BEST”
So let’s get this straight. He’s in the middle of a sold-out concert tour, and she’s on The Voice. We’d say that these two former college buddies are doing pretty well for themselves!
