‘Glee’ Pays Homage To Cory Monteith On Finale: ‘We Could Feel Him’ There

So touching. The cast of ‘Glee’ has revealed that, while they were filming the final moments of the series, they could feel the presence of Cory Monteith there with them.

Cory Monteith will certainly live on. Glee recently completed shooting its sixth and final season, and the cast is still coming to terms with the fact that the show is done for good. Lea MicheleDarren Criss and others from the musical series recently dropped by Ellen to discuss what it was like on set, and they even talked about the ways that they could feel Cory during those final days.

‘Glee’ Finale: Cory Monteith Honored

This is just beautiful.

Along with Lea and Darren, Chris Colfer, Jenna Ushkowitz and Chord Overstreet all paid a visit to Ellen DeGeneres and the conversation took an emotional–albeit heartwarming– turn.

“I assume, and this is tough, but there must be some kind of homage to Cory Monteith, right?” Ellen asked the group.

“There’s a moment in the last episode that we had and obviously when we wrapped we all kind of took a moment to kind of…” Chord said, letting his thought trail off. “He was there though. We could feel him. He was there.”

Sobbing. Sobbing everywhere.

‘It Was Really Cathartic’

The Glee stars talked more generally about the last day of filming too.

“It was really cathartic,” Darren said. “Everyone’s always like ‘did you cry? Were you crying?’ Of course, of course I’m gonna cry. There were moments where I didn’t feel the need to cry, but then everbody else was so I felt like a jerk for not crying and then I would join and go ‘Oh My God this feels so good to cry it out.’ It was so nice.”

And apparently Darren and the rest of the boys crying is a very big deal!

“Chord and Chris never really cry so when you see them cry then you’re like…” Lea said. “And Darren doesn’t cry either.”

Well, if there’s one thing that’s gonna bring a tear to those boys’ eyes, it’s saying good bye to the show which made stars out of them that they’ve worked on for six years, right?

Do you think it’s appropriate that Glee honors Cory?
