The Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Concert Special
"Yes, It’s Really Us Singing: The Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Concert Special" was a musical special featuring the cast of "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend." The set included the shows more popular songs performed by the actors with several solo and group numbers. The special was taped over two nights at Los Angeles’ Orpheum Theatre . It aired on April 5, 2019 as the the 18th episode after the series finale "I'm In Love" . A digital album of the performances was released on April 12, 2019 featuring songs not seen on the special.
Since the concert has had to be aired within a 42 minutes at the CW, some changes were made. Almost all of the songs where cut short, and the actors did not perform the full versions of the songs. During some sons, when characters names would appear in a song, it was changed to the actor's name; for example, when performing "I'm So Good At Yoga", Gabrielle Ruiz sang "exhale on another sigh... Rachel Bloom sucks", however during "You Stupid Bitch" Rachel Bloom does start the song with the lyrics from the show "Well Rebecca, you’ve done it now".
When performing "West Covina", Rachel says that actually West Covina is not in the inland Empire, but in the San Gabriel Valley.
When performing "I'm a Good Person", instead of threatening two people to say she's a good person or else she'll kill the husband, Rachel threatens her parents to say she's a good person or else she'll put them in a bad nursing home.
When performing "You Stupid Bitch", much like the music video, Rachel says to the audience "Yeah, you guys know this one" when the song begins. Also, during the last chorus, she tells the audience to sing with her, just like Rebecca does, and the audience joined her during the chorus.
When performing "George's Turn", just like in the show, the lights go out mid-song, and the song is abruptly stopped.
