In Memoriam: The greatest Cory Monteith moments

When we heard Cory Monteith passed away last Saturday in Vancouver, we couldn't really believe it. We’ve loved seeing Cory sing and dance it up as Finn Hudson on Glee ever since the show premiered in 2009. He’s kinda the heart and soul of the show in a way, and we’re not sure how it’ll be without him. 

It’s pretty clear Cory was a good guy. Despite all of his inner battles, Cory did try to get the help he needed to become sober. A lot of his Hollywood buds have tweeted and released statements saying how heartbroken they are by this tragic situation and what a kind, generous and fun person he was.

To honor his memory, we’ve put together a list of our favorite Cory moments from one of our favorite shows. Play these to help us celebrate his talent.

1. “Don’t Stop Believing” (Season 1)

This is where it all started. The Glee gang’s first time singing “Don’t Stop Believing” made millions fall in love. And it really was the start of Finn and Rachel’s relationship (and maybe Cory and Leah’s, too). 

2. “Man in the Mirror” (Season 3)

As Finn felt threatened by some new members of their group, this Michael Jackson song is where the boys finally put aside their differences and come together as a group.

3. “Bye Bye Bye” / “I Want It That Way” (Season 4)

Finn & Mr. Schu battle it out on stage in this dueling mashup of N'Sync's "Bye Bye Bye" and Backstreet Boys' "I Want It That Way." We think Finn won on this one!

4. “Just the Way You Are” (Season 2)

When Kurt was struggling with being bullied, Finn sang Bruno Mars' “Just The Way You Are” to show Kurt he loves him exactly the way he is and not to be afraid of who you are.

5. “Jesse’s Girl” (Season 1)

This classic ’80s song from the first season of the show is one of Cory’s most memorable solos. You can't help but want to sing along!

6. “The Scientist” (Season 4)

We think this performance is one of the best. The song starts right after Finn and Rachel confront each other. It’s pretty emotional, but a good one to remember him by.
