Not surprisingly, viewers tuned in in huge numbers to watch Glee's tribute episode to Cory Monteith, titled "The Quarterback", and the show posted its best ratings since September 2012.
The emotional episode features the entire cast performing "Seasons of Love" from Rent. Monteith's real-life girlfriend Lea Michele broke into tears during “Make You Feel My Love.” Naya Rivera sang “If I Die Young” and Amber Riley performed “I’ll Stand By You." Mark Salling performed "No Surrender", and Chord Overstreet and Kevin McHale sang James Taylor's "Fire and Rain".
Just about everything in the show was filmed in one take, according to creator Ryan Murphy.
