Fox has released Glee’s Cory Monteith tribute episode songs in video form all online for free viewing so fans can re-experience the touching performances again.
Having debuted on network television last night during a hour-long tribute to their friend who died in July, the six Cory Monteith tribute songs were emotional looks at the struggles the cast and crew dealt with when saying goodbye.
The episode featured a return for several characters including Puck. The plot line took place three weeks after Finn’s death when Mr. Schuester decides to hold a memorial for Finn at McKinley. One of the running plot points of the episode was the mystery of who stole Finn’s jacket which had been in possession of his step-brother Kurt for the first half of the episode.
A poll we conducted yesterday about the episode found that the majority of viewers (62%) found the tribute episode to be a “perfect” send off. 21% said it was a good farewell but could’ve been better, while 5% said it should’ve been very different and 12% were unsure what they felt yet.
Glee will be off for the next few weeks due to baseball playoffs on Fox but will return on November 7 with a new episode pitting Lady Gaga music against Katy Perry. You can see a first look at the episode in our previous story from earlier this morning.
