Man, this week’s Glee is going to be tough to watch.
On Thursday, the show will officially say farewell to Finn Hudson – and, by extension, to Cory Monteith, who died after taking a lethal heroin-alcohol mix in July. The song list for this special episode will include “Seasons of Love” from the musical Rent, Adele’s version of Bob Dylan’s “Make You Feel My Love” – sung by Monteith’s on- and off-screen girlfriend Lea Michele – and The Band Perry’s “If I Die Young,” performed by Monteith’s costar Naya Rivera. All proceeds generated by the tribute’s music will go to Project Limelight Society, an arts organization in Monteith’s native Canada.
MTV premiered Rivera’s emotional cover earlier today. Get a first listen of it below – and then get a box of tissues ready.
