Glee, Matthew Morrison, Onscreen Teacher

We've already started crying.

As we all know, Glee is coming to an end.

And just yesterday, the cast and crew gathered for their final day of shooting. Yes, their absolute last day of filming.

"We just wrapped about an hour ago," Matthew Morrison exclusively told me late last night at the Weinstein Company's pre-Oscar party at the Montage in Beverly Hills. "It was a tough day. I'm not going to cry now because I kind of got it all out, but it was a really tough day."

Morrison sings the final song in the final scene of the series finale. I'm not going to spoil anything by telling you what song, but Morrison said, "It was a beautiful send-off. But it was tough. I was singing to all the kids and Amber Riley starts crying and I'm like, 'Come on, don't do this to me right now.' And then Lea Michele starts crying and then Darren Criss and Chris Colfer."

Morrison had to rush from the set to get to the Montage to perform a number from his upcoming coming Broadway return, Finding Neverland (more on that later).

"There were a lot of hugs and a lot of tears," he said, adding, "It's been an amazing almost seven years."

It certainly has.

See you on Broadway, Mr. Morrison.
