Lead star Cory Monteith‘s life might have ended on a tragic note, but it doesn’t conceal the fact that his performances were to be reckoned with. Check out our list of his 10 ‘Glee’ singing highlights!
Gleeks will never forget Finn’s shower scene, singing the REO Speedwagon hit, as his ticket to the Glee Club. What happened there on, was history.
With him and Rachel (Lea Michele) leading the pack of misfits recruited onto the New Directions, they affirm their destinies of greatness courtesy of this Journey song.
Awkward! As Rachel falls for the claws of rival Jesse St. James, Finn fittingly sings an aptly-titled “Jessie’s Girl” in front of her, and the Glee club.
After seeing Jesus’ likeness in his grilled cheese sandwich, Finn must have thought he has found the key to success. He even affirms it with an R.E.M. cover!
After so many disagreements in season 2, Finn finally reconciles with his stepbrother Kurt (Chris Colfer) during their parents’ weddings. He charmingly serenades Glee’s sweetheart with a cool rendition of a Bruno Mars song.
Oh no! Finn and Rachel split up in season 2’s latter part, and it couldn’t get any more colder on Christmas Day, especially when they see each other, and burst out into song with an even-more colder WHAM song.
Using Greg Laswell’s arrangement of this Cyndi Lauper classic, Finn thoughtfully sings to Santana (Naya Rivera), who has came out to the world, and her grandmother, in season 3.
8. I JUST CAN’T STOP LOVING YOU
Yup, the finicky Rachel and Finn get back together, and what better way to celebrate a reunion than with a MJ cover!
9. BYE BYE BYE/I WANT IT THAT WAY
Things go to a head in season 4 when Finn and club director Mr. Schu (Matthew Morrison) develop somewhat of a tension, probably on who’s going to be a better leader. But of course, every argument is solved by song, especially when they’re boy band mash-ups.
10. YOU GOTTA FIGHT FOR YOUR RIGHT TO PARTY
Finn’s last leading performance consists of – well, typical Finn – partying hard in college. With help from buddy Puck (Mark Salling), they tear down the house with this Beastie Boys cover.
