I'll admit the story line was a bit corny, but when the characters broke out into song, I was in awe. First, these kids were triple threats. Second, Rachel Berry's voice. Lastly, I was a jealous my life didn't involve breaking into song a couple times a day. After watching a couple episodes, the characters grew on me, especially Finn Hudson. He may have just been the handsome star football player with an incredible voice, but Cory Monteith took his character to the next level. Over the years, I watched Cory's character evolve as an inspiration to kids and teenagers standing against the status quo. He was passionate about acting and it shows in every episode.
Tonight, Glee is airing a tribute episode in honor of Cory and I think we all know it will be a tear jerker. With most of my favorite TV shows, I get overly attached to characters. I was pushing for Finn and Rachael to make it, so this evening will be difficult to watch. In memory of Cory, I decided to share my top 5 favorite songs and moments from Glee. Even if you've never watched an episode, I'm sure you'll enjoy a couple of these videos.
