Glee Warblers Curt Mega and Riker Lynch performed the song “The Scientist” in honor of Cory Monteith.
In one of the more touching displays of remembrance since news broke of the passing of Cory Monteith, Curt Mega and Riker Lynch, who have played Dalton Academy Warblers throughout the 4 seasons of Glee, performed an acoustic version of Coldplay’s song “The Scientist” in honor of the actor’s tragic and unexpected death.
Curt Mega, who had worked closely with the cast of Glee on several occasions tweeted out his condolences on the passing of Cory Monteith:
I’ll never forget the love, goofiness & vulnerability Cory expressed through playing Finn. His work touched people’s lives (including mine)

“The Scientist” was a part of the on-again off-again trials and tribulations between Finn and Rachel during season 4 of Glee. It was arguably the best performance of season 4, according to fans of the show. You can check out the full performance that aired on Glee right here:
