The Pretenders Help ‘Glee’ Say Goodbye to Corey Monteith

Glee capped off what was already an emotional episode last night — a tribute to the show’s recently deceased star, Corey Monteith — with a moving rendition of the Pretenders‘ “I’ll Stand By You.”

Monteith, who played Finn on Fox’s musical-comedy show, was found dead in a Vancouver hotel room last July. The song was a poignant callback to Monteith’s work on the show, as the actor sang the same track (originally featured on the band’s 1994 album ‘The Last of the Independents’) in an episode of ‘Glee”s breakout debut season.

Above you can see last night’s performance, handled by longtime cast member Amber Riley. Along with her fellow actors, she understandably appears to fight back real-life tears as she sings. We’ve also included Monteith’s rendition below.
