Glee's Farewell to Cory Monteith – and Finn – Was Beautiful

Originally posted 10/11/2013 08:30AM

Glee said goodbye to Finn Hudson and Cory Monteith Thursday night with an hour that was very moving – how could it not be? – but also very kind.

Kind because a viewer's buttons were never pushed. Whatever you felt just seemed to come, scene by scene, as everyone found a way to articulate their grief. And, of course, to sing.

Monteith, who was only 31 when he died July 13 from a mixture of alcohol and heroin, had already shot appearances in the season's first two episodes – those, a salute to the Beatles, were re-edited leading up to last night's memorial.

Whitney's Body Transported Nine Hours After Medics Arrived

Whitney Houston's Body Transported Nine Hours After Medics Arrived

In the early hours of Sunday morning, while Clive Davis's pre-Grammy bash pressed on just floors below, the body of the late Whitney Houston was removed from her 4th floor room at the Beverly Hilton hotel.

At 12:45 a.m., Houston's body was transported in the back of a white coroner's vehicle – nine hours after she was declared dead – and was met by a mob of 50 cameramen. Her autopsy is presumably underway at the L.A. County Department of Coroner, which will no doubt include a toxicology test to determine the presence of drugs in her system.
