Millions of people tuned in on Sunday to watch the 65th Annual Primetime Emmys. Some of us tuned in for one reason only: to witness Jane Lynch memorialize her fallen co-star, Cory Monteith. Jane stood alone on stage with only photos of Cory as her backdrop. She was poised, classy, and clearly fighting back tears as she talked of Cory’s kind and generous spirit and his unbelievably tragic death, caused by an overdose in Vancouver just a few short months ago. Lynch told E! News at the after party: "I was honored to be the one that they asked to remember Cory to the rest of the country. There's a whole generation of kids whose lives have been enriched, and I'm really grateful to our show for that, and Finn Hudson and his openheartedness and inclusiveness is a big reason why kids love our show so much, and he's gone." Lynch also took that opportunity to defend Cory: “I think it’s important for everyone to know, especially those kids, that he was as bright a light as his character.” During the memorial, Lynch hailed Cory as a “gifted and wonderful young man,” who was certainly “worthy” of the outpouring of love and adoration he received from fans of Glee. "It is remarkable and perhaps a little curious how television shows become like families. This summer, on our show Glee, we suffered a painful death in our family.” Powerful and true words, Jane; I know that when I heard the news, it rocked my world more than I care to admit. One can only imagine how those that actually knew Cory are coping. Many were unhappy with the inclusion of Cory into the extended tribute portion. And while I understand that some felt other more seasoned actors should have been given the same consideration, Cory’s reach should never be questioned. To diminish what he’s done just because he hasn’t been around for very long or because of his age is incredibly short-sided. Cory may have been only 31-years-old, but his legacy and Finn Hudson will live forever.
