'Glee' Pays Tribute To Cory Monteith

Tears were streaming down the face of Lea Michele, Cory Monteith's real-life girlfriend, when she sang a tribute in Thursday night's emotionally charged episode of Glee.

The tribute episode of the series picks up three weeks after the death of Monteith’s character in the show, quarterback Finn Hudson. His death isn't explained but the cast mourns their loss as only they can, by singing.

The lines between the real life mourning for Monteith and the on-screen mourning for his Glee character blurred in emotional scenes.
