Lea Michele had an emotional heart-to-heart with her co-star Jonathan Groff for a different kind of interview in Teen Vogue. She revealed how she came up with the name Louder for her new album — and what Cory Monteith‘s favorite song on it was.
It was fitting that the Grammy Awards honored Cory Monteith by including him in their “In Memoriam” segment on Jan. 26 and trying to remember all the great contributions he made to the music world. However, the ceremony’s execution of the tribute left a whole lot to be desired.
The world lost a fair share of legends in 2013, in the entertainment industry and outside of it. But with every star, like Nelson Mandela and Paul Walker, the amazing outpouring of support and love that followed their deaths proved how much they meant to the world. As we turn the page on 2013, let’s remember the stars we lost this year.
Glee revolved around the relationship between Rachel, (Lea Michele), and Finn, (Cory Monteith) — but everything changed after Cory passed away after his battle with addiction inevitably took his life on July 13 at the tender age of 31. Co-creator Ryan Murphy revealed on Oct. 18 at an event at the Paley Center that he always imagined the ending of the show — and it was a scene between Rachel and Finn. Now, in an extremely emotional excerpt from the eulogy Ryan delivered at a private memorial service for the late star, fans will be moved by the beautiful ending that Ryan always wanted for the show — and the characters.
We’ve heard Lea Michele‘s extremely strong voice on Glee over the years, but for the first time ever, we got to see her perform her own song live on Ellen! Watch the amazing video below.
Lea Michele‘s Dec. 12 interview on Ellen didn’t leave a dry eye in the audience, since she spoke about what it was like working with her Glee “family” again after the passing of her boyfriend, Cory Monteith. She also said she wants “rise” from her grief for Cory, because he inspired her to do her best, and his love made her feel like the “luckiest girl in the world.”
