The popular actor of the Fox series -- who poked fun at himself for forgetting part of the lyrics to original track "Jealousy" -- raised proceeds for the "Toys For Tots" organization.

Glee star Darren Criss made 100 fans very happy on Monday when he performed a secret show at Joe's Pub in New York City. The event's proceeds benefitted Toys for Tots organization.

Criss, who portrays Blaine Anderson on the Fox series, gave attendees a five-hour headstart when he announced the concert on his Twitter page. The first hundred in line were required to bring a brand-new toy that cost $15 in addition to $10 in cash. The reward: a ticket to see Criss sing and a concert poster.

On his set list: covers of The Little Mermaid song "Part of Your World," Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream" and a duet of Bob Dylan's "New Morning" with Criss' musician brother, Chuck Criss.

Criss also sang his 2010 single "Jealousy," but (adorably) forgot part of the lyrics. Watch the footage below:
