Remember When Five-Time Grammy Award Winner Finneas Was on 'Glee'? The Internet Does

At Sunday night's Grammy Awards (Jan. 26), Finneas O'Connell turned out to be a major winner — Billie Eilish's brother and producer snagged five Grammys in one evening, including song, record and album of the year, along with producer of the year and best engineered album. 

The internet, though, wanted to make sure that we all remembered one specific aspect of the superstar producer's career — that he had a brief acting stint on Fox's Glee. In a series of tweets, fans began referring to Finneas as the "most successful Glee alum" for his massive wins at the Grammys. 

It turns out they're right — O'Connell did star in four episodes of the show's final season. He played Alistair, the romantic love interest of glee club member Spencer in the final few episodes of the series. He also got to perform a few numbers with the cast, including "Rather Be," "Cool Kids" and more. 

Check out a clip of O'Connell's time on Glee, along with some excellent fan reactions, below:
