Lynch surprised many with the notes she hit and the length of time in which she held them. Thank Fox for lip-syncing. The Emmy nominee took a stroll through TV’s past and present paying homage to the final seasons of Entourage with Jeremy Piven and Rex Lee, as well as a tour through the hallowed halls of Friday Night Lights. She then came face to face with her own character, Sue Sylvester.

Other opening number guests included Grey’s Anatomy’s Eric Dane, Parks and Recreation’s Nick Offerman, and even the stars of Discovery Channel’s Mythbusters.

The audience gave her a standing ovation, but what did you think of Lynch’s grand opening number?
