Lea shares a heartbreaking photo from the ‘Glee’ set as the cast prepares to honor Cory’s memory on camera.
In case you had any doubt that Glee‘s tribute episode to Finn/Cory Monteith would be the most emotionally devastating hour of your life, allow this to remind you: Lea Michele tweeted a picture of herself, in character, wearing a Finn necklace Aug. 23 while filming the highly anticipated episode. The necklace was modeled after the “Cory” necklace that Lea, herself, often wears.
Along with the photo attached, Lea tweeted, “Today…” and ended the message with a little heart.
Lea didn’t have to tweet this picture out to her 3.79 million Twitter followers, but because she’s been depending on her fans for love and support during this difficult time, she decided to let them into her world once again.
Lea Michele’s ‘Powerful’ Performance On Tribute Episode
Rachel may be rocking a commemorative “Finn” necklace during the emotional tribute episode, but don’t expect to see her in the entire episode. E! Online reports that Glee‘s leading lady won’t appear until the final act of the episode, aka everything after the final commercial break.
That said, Lea’s song — oh, yes, she will belt out a heart-wrenching tune — is expected to be “powerful.”
Santana (Naya Rivera) will also reportedly have viewers in tears with her emotional performance.
Lea Michele Tweets Casting Spoiler
This is hardly the first Glee scoop Lea has shared with fans of the show. She broke the news of Phoebe Strole‘s casting Aug. 22 with this tweet:

Phoebe will be playing Penny Owen, a college sophomore with dreams of becoming a nurse — and a major thing for Sam (Chord Overstreet).
