Darren Criss Joins Erika Van Pelt On Stage at the Inaugural Ball (VIDEO)

I love when world collide! At last week’s Vice Presidential Inauguration Ball, Glee star, Darren Criss, joined American Idol season 11 alum, Erika Van Pelt on stage. The Idol singer was performing with her band for the crowd of party-goers.

Unfortunately, it’s only a short snip, but here’s Darren playing guitar and singing some backups while Erika belts out “What’s Up” by 4 Non Blondes.

    Nice… Love it too when world’s collide… still thinking fondly about Glee’s  Chris Colfer  giving a hug to American Idol (AI) alumn Adam Lambert (happy birthday !!) at a talkshow (VH1 morning buzz) last year… and sooooo looking forward to AI’s  Jessica Sanchez performance on Glee !!

    Cool that Erika got this gig! Nice to see her again. I hope that Idol enables her to have a singing career full-time.

    I would really like to have heard that entire song by Erika. IMO she should have placed much higher last season.

    Erika is recording her album as we speak, so hopefully we will be getting music from her soon.  Last I heard she said April.  She’s also said she’s moving to LA, but probably not until later this year (and will possibly living with some of her fellow S11 alums).

    Glad she got the gig. Her delivery seems much less strained than the 4NB original based on what little I could hear, but I still don’t care for the song very much.

    I am curious to hear what happens with her album. She’s quite talented.
