No, Darren Criss won't be singing "Happy Birthday." (At least we don't think so.)

But he will be taking Pink's place—darn stomach flu—as the headliner for Barack Obama's LGBT fundraiser gala, which will be held at the Beverly Wilshire hotel tomorrow night.

":) So bummed I'll have to miss my dental appointment to sing for The US President Wed night. thanx @Pink for messin that up!! #greattiming," the Glee star tweeted.

"... But in all seriousness @Pink- what an honor! & while I'm at it, thanks for letting me sing your songs on glee :) hope we did ya justice!" he continued.

After the gala, Obama will attend a fundraising dinner at the home of Glee creator Ryan Murphy (Barack must be a Gleek). And if you're wondering how you can be a part of the shindig, tickets are selling for $40,000 per couple.

See you there?
