There will be a special tribute to honour Cory Monteith at the 65th Primetime Emmy Awards.
Ken Ehrlich, the executive producer for the awards show, announced on July 30 that the segment will be held at a separate time than the “In Memoriam” part of the show, and it will involve music in some way.
He admitted in an interview with Deadline that there has been a lot of pressure to do something big for the Glee star, and reassured everyone that something is in the works.
Ehrlich said that the tribute will be, “Something that reflects an homage what the extent of that is, or how we’re going to approach it… well, it’s too early to tell.
“If Cory had passed away in March, we’d have had four months to look at this with a little more perspective. The reason we’re getting all of this discussion now is because he passed away two weeks ago. But we are going to deal with it.”
Host Neil Patrick Harris will open the Emmy Awards on September 22.
