During the 65th Emmy Awards, actress Jane Lynch gave a touching tribute to the late Cory Monteith and reminded us of how much we miss the Glee star. The 31-year-old Canadian actor passed away suddenly in Vancouver this past July, and sent fans and Hollywood into a state of shock and mourning. Monteith first charmed his way into everyone’s hearts as the lovable Finn Hudson, William McKinley High School’s star football player turned New Directions singer on Glee back in 2009. “I wasn’t like Finn. I didn’t really go to school as much as he does,” he once told InStyle.com. “I cut a lot of class, so I’m glad things worked out as well as they did!” It was on the very set of Glee that Monteith met his girlfriend, Lea Michele and they quickly became one of the most adorable couples on the red carpet and we can’t help but remember one of our favorite Cory moments, when the couple got ready for the SAG awards together in January. The actor told us, “Lea’s dress? It’s stunning. I am the luckiest man!” We miss you, Cory!

Cory Monteith, we will miss you. The 31-year-old Canadian actor passed away suddenly in Vancouver on Saturday, and sent fans around the world into a state of shock and grieving. He first charmed his way into our hearts as the lovable football player with a softer side Finn Hudson on Glee in 2009. “I wasn’t like Finn. I didn’t really go to school as much as he does,” he once told InStyle.com. “I cut a lot of class, so I’m glad things worked out as well as they did!” It was on that very set where he met his girlfriend, Lea Michele. A TV power couple since last January, they traveled the world together — even doing fun fashion things like stopping at a Versace runway show during Couture Fashion Week last summer — and became one of the most adorable duos of red carpet season. We can’t help but remember one of our favorite Cory Monteith moments, when the couple got ready for the SAG awards together in January. The actor told us, “Lea’s dress? It’s stunning. I am the luckiest man!” Cory, you are gone too soon.

“Rule #1 is that you gotta have fun” is the first lyric in “How to Be a Heartbreaker” by Marina and the Diamonds, and it’s a phrase that also easily applies to every single minute of the FOX show Glee. It makes perfect sense then that this will be one of the tunes featured on this week’s all-new episode “Feud,” sung by head honcho Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) and her new boy toy Brody Weston (Dean Geyer). The woman behind the song, Marina and the Diamonds (real name: Marina Lambrini Diamandis) is also excited to see the playful “don’t-fall-in-love-too-soon” lyrics come alive in a Glee-ful way. “I’m thrilled,” the 27-year-old Brit told InStyle.com when we caught up with her at her New York record company, Atlantic Records (seen above right). “It’s rad for me as an artist. That has never happened in my life.” And not only will she gain a handful of Gleek fans, the exposure also provides a nice entry into the tongue-in-cheek, lovely land of Marina. “I want people to get into the humor of the record,” she said. “They’ll see that I’m playing with the idea of a pop singer, as opposed to being so in the pop world.” Catch the song in its Glee form Thursday, March 14 at 9/8c on FOX, and then visit marinaandthediamonds.com to see when Marina’s Lonely Heart’s Club Tour is coming to play a town near you.
