The 5th season of Glee kicks off tonight on FOX to the tune of the Beatles.
And although the two part premiere of the hit show kicks off with an upbeat bang, the show is also set to honor late cast member Cory Monteith in the third episode.
Jacob Artist, who plays Jake, shares he couldn’t be happier with the way the tribute plays out for Cory, who passed away in July from an overdose.
Jacob shares with On Air with Ryan Seacrest: “There’s a bunch of beautiful songs in the episode. I think the writers did a really beautiful job representing all the love and respect we had for Cory and Finn. So, I think it’s going to be a real special episode.”
Catch the premiere of Glee tonight on FOX at 9/8.
