During the 65th Emmy Awards, actress Jane Lynch gave a touching tribute to the late Cory Monteith and reminded us of how much we miss the Glee star. The 31-year-old Canadian actor passed away suddenly in Vancouver this past July, and sent fans and Hollywood into a state of shock and mourning. Monteith first charmed his way into everyone's hearts as the lovable Finn Hudson, William McKinley High School's star football player turned New Directions singer on Glee back in 2009. “I wasn’t like Finn. I didn’t really go to school as much as he does,” he once told “I cut a lot of class, so I’m glad things worked out as well as they did!” It was on the very set of Glee that Monteith met his girlfriend, Lea Michele and they quickly became one of the most adorable couples on the red carpet and we can’t help but remember one of our favorite Cory moments, when the couple got ready for the SAG awards together in January. The actor told us, “Lea’s dress? It’s stunning. I am the luckiest man!” We miss you, Cory!
