Thursday night Glee said goodbye to Cory Monteith and Finn Hudson. Unquestionably, the heart and soul of Glee, Monteith's Finn will be much missed. From Finn's friendship with Kurt (Kurt Colfer) to his relationship with Rachel (Lea Michele) and his ability to bring everyone together, Finn was Glee's emotional anchor.

The performances of original gleeks Chris Colfer, Kevin McHale (Artie), Naya Rivera (Santana), Amber Riley (Mercedes), Mark Salling (Puck),  Jenna Ushkowitz (Tina) and Michele were poignant and heartfelt. I doubt anyone made it through "The Quarterback" without shedding a tear or two.  However, the absence of Dianna Agron (Quinn) and Heather Morris (Brittany) was glaring. I won't spoil the episode's final scene for those who haven't watched it yet, but it was heartbreaking.   

Glee served up a number of songs memorializing Finn. My favorites were the glee club's "Seasons of Love" and Mercedes' "I'll Stand by You."

Rewatch the performances after the jump and share  your favorite moments from "The Quarterback".

We'd also love to know what your favorite Finn Hudson moments were. One of my favorites was when Finn and Rachel memorably broke up at the train station.
