Lea Michele speaks out about Cory Monteith's death, upcoming 'Glee' tribute

For the first time since Cory Monteith’s untimely death in July, the fallen actor’s on- and off-screen girlfriend Lea Michele has addressed her loss in an interview with TV Week Australia.

“I feel like, for me personally, I’ve lost two people: Cory and Finn,” Michele told the magazine. But even though Monteith’s death was devastating, Michele added that she never really considered quitting the show: “Everyone is asking, ‘Is it hard to do this? Is it hard to be back at work?’ But the truth is, it’s no harder at work than it is in life — so we might as well all be together as a family supporting each other to get through this together.” READ FULL STORY

Hear all the Cory Monteith tribute songs from 'Glee'; which one is the saddest?

Yesterday, we got a first listen at Naya Rivera’s emotion-drenched rendition of “If I Die Young” — a cover featured in Glee‘s special tribute episode to Cory Monteith, which airs this Thursday on Fox. Now the rest of the tribute’s heart-wrenching tunes have made their way to YouTube as well.

Each of these six tracks may make you misty — but given view counts, it seems the one that’s had  the greatest impact so far is Lea Michele’s cover of “Make You Feel My Love.” (That figures; after all, Michele and Monteith dated both on and offscreen.)

Do you agree that Michele’s song is the most poignant — and saddest — of the whole collection? Give a listen below, then cast your vote.

Naya Rivera sings 'If I Die Young' for Cory Monteith tribute on 'Glee': Listen here

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.

'Glee': What to expect from tonight's premiere

Little did we know when Glee wrapped its fourth season, the show — and the fans who love it — were in for one heck of a hard summer. A lot has changed since the musical dramedy went off the air in May, and the show now brings with it questions much larger than “Will Rachel land her Broadway dream?” Cory Monteith tragically passed away in July, and the show announced, perhaps inevitably, that the upcoming season will feature the death of his character, Finn, as well.

Before that depressing turn of events, starting tonight, the show will kick off its two-part Beatles tribute episode (“Love, Love, Love” and “Tina in the Sky With Diamonds”). If tribute episodes of the past — such as hours devoted to Madonna or Britney — are anything to go on, tonight will be an upbeat, music-filled hour (eight songs as opposed to the more typical four per hour) with brief storylines focused on the themes of the artist’s oeuvre. Since The Beatles are all about love, it’s likely the show will kick off with a continuation of Blaine’s will he/won’t he proposal to Kurt. The show is going to be dealing with more than its fair share of tragedy this season, and getting Kurt and Blaine back together can provide a happy counterpoint, not to mention a great excuse to break out even more classic love songs.

Amber Riley takes EW's Pop Culture Personality Test, talks 'Lion King,' more

Amber-Riley.jpg

Amber Riley has a built-in advantage when it comes to Dancing With the Stars: Her partner, Derek Hough, has won the most trophies of all the professional partners. “I’m with someone who knows what they’re doing,” Riley laughs. “It eases my mind a little bit.”

Already, the Glee alum (who’ll return for at least a few episodes of the musical dramedy this season) is wowing the judges, perhaps because she knows what they’re looking for. “I’m a huge fan of Dancing With the Stars,” Riley told EW prior to the start of the season. “I was really nervous, but I don’t want to ever live in a place where I’m just too scared that I don’t at least try. I’ve always enjoyed ballroom dances, and I’ve been watching it since I was a kid, so to be able to do this is a fun dream come true. I don’t need to do it professionally, it’s just for fun.”

Watch Riley take EW’s Pop Culture Personality Test below, where she shares what movie she always has to watch when it’s on TV and why Lion King makes her cry (Stars! They’re just like us!)

Ask Chris Colfer for his favorite villain in children’s entertainment, and he can’t help but pick the titular character from the second book in his The Land of Stories series, The Enchantress Returns: “I purposely tried to make her a little bit of all the classic villains,” he says of evil Ezmia, who resurfaces long after cursing Sleeping Beauty to strike fear in the fairy-tale world and beyond. “I say she’s deliciously evil.”

Also wicked: Colfer’s sense of humor when he recently stopped by EW to take our Pop Culture Personality Test. Watch the video below. READ FULL STORY
