The cast will be performing "Seasons of Love" from the Broadway musical, "Rent," as Hollywood Life reported on September 19, 2013.
Additionally, Amber Riley will be performing a solo during the Finn Hudson tribute. Although she did not reveal the name of the song, she did say that she broke down while singing the solo. "Singing the song to him, the specific song I sing, it’s very touching. People are going to recognize the song when they hear it. But we also were laughing, you know, reminiscing, watching old videos of Cory dancing, and our first time in New York on a private plan and how goofy we were. It was times of laughter, also."
Lea Michele, Cory's soul mate, both on and off-screen, will have a "limited but incredibly powerful" song in the final act of the episode.
"Glee" season 5 premieres Thursday September 26 at 9/8.
The Cory/Finn tribute episode, "The Quarterback," will air on October 10 at 9/8c on FOX.
