Cory Monteith Tribute Episode: First Details on an Emotional Solo
We haven’t yet heard many details about which songs will be performed during the upcoming Glee Season 5, Episode 3 tribute to Cory Monteith (Finn). But we’re starting to learn which characters will be singing during the episode.
Amber Riley (Mercedes) has revealed that she has been recording songs for the tribute, and she sounded understandably drained from the process. On August 21, she tweeted:
Now I need to go back to sleep, I had a full day yesterday and it wore me out. I have to record some too secret glee songs tomorrow ????
We can’t wait to hear Amber’s sure-to-be-powerful vocal contributions. We’re especially glad that Amber is involved in the episode, since we’d heard that she wasn’t likely to appear much this season. And Mercedes and Finn weren’t particularly close, but they shared plenty of key scenes over the years, so we can’t imagine her not being part of the episode.
It has also been revealed that Rachel (Lea Michele) will sing during the tribute episode as well. With Rachel and Mercedes both performing, we can already guarantee that we’ll be getting extremely emotional while watching it.
