GLEE: The Emotional Tribute to Cory Monteith's "Finn Hudson"

 
 
There were a lot of things left unsaid during Thursday's episode of the "Glee," which said goodbye to Finn Hudson, the character played by the late Cory Monteith. What was left unsaid was how Finn died, but what was said was how much of an impact he left on the McKinley gang, and how much they all will miss him.
 
Fans had waited to see how the Fox television show would address the loss of one of its founding cast members following Monteith's death in July from an accidental overdose of heroin and alcohol at age 31.
 
The show opened with a performance from the current New Directions in honor of Finn, with the old New Directions -- Kurt, Santana, Puck, Mercedes and Mike -- joining in on "Rent's" "Seasons of Love." The number was followed by a scene with Kurt, in New York, packing his things to head back to Lima, Ohio, for a special memorial for Finn, held three weeks after his funeral.
 
 
"Glee" went on to honor Finn in a very "Glee" fashion, with the gang performing songs in tribute to the late character, or, to express their emotions.
 
Sam and Artie lead the New Directions in singing the James Taylor classic Fire and Rain.
 
 
Santana shows a softer side with her performance of If I Die Young
 
Mercedes pays tribute to Finn with the Pretenders' hit I'll Stand By You. 
 
Puck remembers his best friend with Bruce Springsteen's No Surrender.
 
 
Finn was a central character on the show, a high school football star turned choir member who defended the school's misfits and played an integral part in advancing the series' theme of tolerance.

"Glee" star Lea Michele, who was dating Monteith in an off-screen romance at the time of his death, appeared near the end of the hour-long episode, singing the Bob Dylan song, "Make You Feel My Love" while tears streamed down her face. Her character, Rachel Berry, had dated Finn on the show.



"Glee" premiered in 2009 and instantly became a hit and a pop culture phenomenon, with motivational storylines, upbeat musical numbers and a diverse young cast playing popular and oddball school students who come together in a musical choir group. The show has won Golden Globes, Emmys and Peabody awards.
