I’ve put together a collection of great Glee performances from Cory Monteith, who was found dead in a Vancouver hotel room yesterday.
Cory played the dumb, but sweet football player, Finn Hudson on the FOX musical comedy. He elevated a role that would have seemed stereotypical and one dimensional in lesser hands into a fully fledged character. I always felt that Cory’s acting abilities were underrated and had looked forward to his post-Glee career. So much potential there–a life and career cut tragically short.
Watch the performances below:
Don’t Stop Believing – Glee Pilot – Season 1
This is the performance that started the Glee phenomenon.
Somebody to Love – Official Music Video – Season 1
Jessie’s Girl – Laryngitis – Season 1
Losing My Religion – Grilled Cheesus – Season 2
Just the Way You Are – Furt – Season 2
Girls Just Want to Have Fun – I Kissed a Girl – Season 3
Man in the Mirror – Hold on To Sixteen – Season 3
The Scientist – The Break Up – Season 4
We’ve Got Tonight – I Do – Season 4
Don’t Stop Believing – Sweet Dream – Season 4
This was Cory’s last Glee performance–ironically a reprise of the first “Don’t Stop Believing.” Full circle.
