Darren Criss, who plays out-and-proud Blaine Anderson on the Fox musical-comedy Glee, and singer Adam Lambert on Friday cheered passage of a gay marriage bill in New York.

The New York Senate late Friday night approved the marriage legislation championed by Governor Andrew Cuomo with the help of four Republicans who joined all but one Democrat in voting for the measure. The Assembly overwhelmingly approved the measure last week. A last-minute amendment that broadens the bill's religious protections helped win over two undecided Republicans in the Senate. Upon hearing of the bill's passage, proponents who had lined the Senate hallways for days began chanting, “USA! USA! USA!”

“As if I didn't already have enough to celebrate and enjoy today,” the 24-year-old Criss tweeted to his more than 350,000 followers. “A big hug for New York from my lone hotel room in London. #MarriageEquality.”

Moments later he added: “I sing it every night, but now its has better meaning: 'New York concrete jungle where dreams are made of, there's nothing you can't do.' :)”

Lambert, who is openly gay, retweeted to his more than 1 million followers a message on the historic legislation from gay glossy Out: “We Do: GAY MARRIAGE IS LEGAL IN NEW YORK: Start dieting for that dress fitting gals!!!!”
