'Glee' honors Cory Monteith during nationals episode

By Chelsea Lewis ,

Glee normally ends a season with the Glee club attending nationals and competing for the top honor. This season ended with the glee club once again on the national stage, but this episode featured another dedication to the late Cory Monteith, which was unexpected.

In the episode, the group decides on a set list that was created from Finn's favorite songs. Featured in the episode is Finn's mom, Carole, and stepfather, Burt, who watch the performance in the audience, Variety reported.

Before the New Directions finished their national set, they closed with "Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" by U2. Audiences saw flashbacks to some of the best moments on the show that featured Monteith. The flashbacks went all the way back to the series pilot, which featured Monteith being discovered for his vocal talent while being in the shower, to a moment between Finn and Mr. Schuster, who is played by Matthew Morrison. The scene is often remembered as an emotional and important moment for the show, Vulture recapped.

The entire performance during the show was dedicated to Finn.

Monteith died back in July of last year at the age of 31. Following his passing, Ryan Murphy, the creator of Glee, dedicated the episode "The Quarterback" to his character and to the actor.
