Patrons at the Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica got a special treat this afternoon.

This week's challenge on On the Spot was "Acoustic Corner." The contestants were given songs and then had to go out where they live and perform on the streets to see if they could draw a crowd.

Someone who is familiar with doing the same thing is "Glee" star Darren Criss. Darren went down to the Third Street Promenade this afternoon unannounced to see just what would happen if he started playing.

Within minutes a crowd gathered and you could hear many say "Is that him? No, it can't be…wait, it is!" Word quickly spread and a nice crowd gathered. Darren performed songs from his EP as well as hits from "Glee" and some fun covers like "Since U Been Gone" by Kelly Clarkson and "Part of Your World" from The Little Mermaid.

Check out some exclusive pictures and stay tuned for exclusive video. Come back Friday for a full behind-the-scenes look at the Acoustic Corner with Darren Criss and also tune into "On the Spot" on Friday to see how the contestants did with the challenge.
