I too enjoyed the last song - it nicely "bookended" the series, and brought back the best of what it was originally.

Didn't Derrick win director? Or was that choreographer?

I also agreed that Daisy's win was absurd. (Although in real life, it wouldn't have been unusual for a mother/daughter pair to split the vote.)

And really? Yes it's live TV, but they can't just send an entire cast on stage and hpe they'll be properly lit and miked!

OK, enough nit-picking. I will admit I'll miss the show.

I thought Derrick won for choreographer. And I don't remember seeing director announced...but wonder if it was Tom since he was shown last admiring his Tony -- but I guess that could have been for the music too.

Eileen and Nick

Derrick and Ivy

I didn't watch. I tuned in, but as soon as I saw Jimmy I just couldn't watch it anymore. Even to see how the show ended.

So did those two couples listed above end up together?

So sorry to lose a scripted show with such a wonderful premise, great talent and some fabulous original music along with performances of songs we know. The ending told me that the folks on the show knew for quite a while the show was done. All the word that kept leaking about this person and that person leaving was not really them leaving the show, but rather the behind the scenes knowledge the show was done.

DD walked in on the final number & said, wait, does the stage say Tony Awards? I thought it was a wonderful wrap and a high note to go out on -- even throwing the SMASH sign up behind them.

So ready for reality TV to go away & see some real creativity on the screen.

Sure looked like they did. Ivy and Derek was quite sweet I thought.

I was watching the finale with a friend, and we both agreed we liked Kyle, and that we'd rather have seen Jimmy killed off. I wish Jeremy Jordan continued success, but I don't know if I could ever see him on Broadway.

We also wondered if Katherine McPhee was consistently bland because she can't act her way out of a paper bag or if her character was supposed to be vapid. Or maybe they adjusted her character to vapid.

I will miss SMASH! I hope they put Season 2 on DVD!

And I'm the other way around! I saw him on Broadway in Newsies first, and couldn't believe that was him singing in Smash because it was so bad in comparison!

She seemed more vapid in Season 2 than in Season 1. Maybe because Jimmy was so boring, and there wasn't a drop of chemistry between them. At least she had chemistry with Dev and Derrick.

OK, I just watched the final episode. I cried. There, I admit it! I am really going to miss this show, I love Broadway and it was a nice little fantasy/reality escape. The cast was so wonderful, too bad the writers ruined it.

Wow, very interesting, and I love the picture at the very end. Oh how I wish there was a new season ahead!
