  • For the first time in the show's history, Canal+ allowed the show to go on for an extra few minutes after the normal ending time to allow Nirvana to play an extra song.

Notes
  • The band stopped playing "Serve The Servants" when Kurt noticed a fake smoke effect that he didn't like, according to a cast member of the TV show. It is not known exactly when the band stopped and started, since this part was not included in the broadcast.
  • The band played "Dumb" because the tour manager told Kurt to choose a song with cello since Melora Creager was hanging around anyway, according to Melora.
