The cast and crew of Glee weren't just crying when they wrapped filming the series finale on Saturday.

"Everybody was balling and all of a sudden I couldn't stop laughing," Chord Overstreet told me at the Oscars Governors Ball. "And then everybody started laughing and we couldn't stop laughing. It was so infectious and it was so amazing. It was one of the best experiences in my life."

In fact, Overstreet said, "I can't imagine it ending any better than the way it did. I was the most content I had ever been. It was the last take that we did. It was just us—the original cast—and a Steadicam."

Overstreet said the cast ended the night by talking for two hours. "It was one of those things where I couldn't stop smiling," he said. "There were tears and there was laughter. It was every emotion you could think of."

Lea Michele revealed on Instagram that she took home her late boyfriend and co-star Cory Monteith's football jersey as a memento from set.

She also posted a photo of the cast with a caption that reads, "Last day at Glee tomorrow... It's been the most incredible 6 1/2 years. I'm going to miss Rachel Berry so much."

Matthew Morrison told me just a couple of hours after wrapping that it was a "really tough day."

While singing the last song of the series, Morrison said Michele, Amber Riley, Darren Criss and Chris Colfer began to cry. "There were a lot of hugs and a lot of tears," he said, adding, "It's been an amazing almost seven years."
