Glee Bids Emotional Farewell to “The Quarterback” (VIDEO)



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.

Was Glee Almost Cancelled After Cory Monteith’s Death?


After the death of Glee star Cory Monteith many fans wondered what would happen to their beloved show. In an interview with E! Online, creator Ryan Murphy reveals he questioned whether the show should continue and how Lea Michelle had the final word.
How did you decide what to do with the show?

Once you're faced with this situation, which is devastating…There's really no way to win in this situation. So our position was, do we go off the air permanently? Do we go off the air until November? Do we start shooting again in January? But the thing that we ultimately found was that our cast and crew wanted to be together, they wanted to go back to work, they wanted to sort of be in a place where they could all remember and discuss Cory sooner than later. As for me, I really had no set opinion. I was willing to do what people wanted.

So who made the call?

Ultimately the person who made the decision was Lea, who felt that the best thing for the cast and crew was to be together and to get back to work and be together every day and talk about our memories of him. So we decided to do that with Lea's blessing and we're going to go back to work and have grief counselors on the set for two weeks because people are really hurting.
