Tonight on the Dancing With The Stars finale, Glee’s Amber Riley (Mercedes) will face off against the last two competitors in hopes of bringing home that coveted mirrorball trophy for her very own.

As Amber prepares mentally for this huge moment in the competition, she’s receiving words of comfort and encouragement from one very unlikely place: Her former Glee co-star Cory Monteith (Finn). Hold on a second, you’re probably saying, ‘How does that work?’ After all, Cory passed away suddenly this July. How exactly can he be sending his support from beyond the grave?

What can we say? The internet can do weird things. You see, Cory’s Twitter account has not yet been closed. On November 26, a Glee fan named Alisha shared with Amber a tweet of Cory’s she had screen-grabbed...a tweet he sent way back on April 9, 2009.

Cory’s four-year-old tweet contained three simple words: “amber...bring it.”

Amber retweeted the post for all her fans to see, writing, “@finnickoblaine thank you for that tweet, just sent me into tears. I could hear his voice saying that.

Oy. Anyone else start tearing up?
