While performing at the Roxy Theater in West Hollywood on Saturday afternoon, Glee’s Chord Overstreet dedicated a song to his pal Cory Monteith — exactly a week after his death. RumorFix was there.
The song brought Dianna Agron and Jenna Ushkowitz — who were in the audience — to tears.
Chord said, “I wasn’t going to play this but.. Argh. I recently have been going through a lot of stuff with a losing really, really dear friend of mine, so I want to play this song for him. This is for you Cory.”
Glee’s Kevin McHale and Samuel Larsen were also in the audience along with Rock of Ages’ Julianne Hough.
The VIP section was filled with several Glee cast and crew members who appeared happy to see each other — many of them gave each other long hugs.
Glee’s co-creator told Deadline that Glee is planning a memorial for the cast and crew on the Paramount lot.
