It is said that Will and Rachel had agreed that the Troubletones can do one performance at a competition. Will walks in near the end of the song, surprised and happy with what he sees. The version of this song used in the episode included Quinn's and Santana's parts louder and clearer than the studio version.

Trivia

  • This song showcases Rachel's 100th solo in any performance in Glee.
  • This is the third time New Directions sung a celebratory song after a Sectionals competition, with My Life Would Suck Without You in Sectionals and Dog Days Are Over in Special Education. Interestingly, this last one was also performed in the auditorium, finalizing with a group hug.
  • The cloud backdrop is the same used in the performance of Dog Days Are Over, which was also sung after winning their Sectionals competition. Just like the Dog Days Are Over performance, this one is sung in the Auditorium.
  • First time New Directions breaks the 13-member barrier (and second time to break 12 after Kurt's return in Born This Way). As of the end of this song, they stand at 15 members.
