Chord Overstreet dedicated a song to Cory Monteith at his show at The Roxy in Los Angeles on Saturday, July 20. The 24-year-old singer covered Travis McCoy's "Billionaire" and recalled, "I sang this with Kevin McHale and Cory Monteith." The three stars performed the song in the second season of "Glee". "I love you Cory!" Overstreet added.
After the show that was attended by "Glee" castmates McHale, Dianna Agron and Jenna Ushkowitz, Overstreet talked about Monteith in an interview with E! News. "He was the greatest dude you'd ever met," Overstreet told the site. "Never met anyone who said anything bad about him."
"Everybody loved him... I spent more time with him than I have with anyone in my family in the last three or four years... We're a family," he added. Overstreet also admitted he felt sad that Monteith wasn't able to see his performance. "If he's out there watching, I would want him to look down and give me a high five," Overstreet said.
Overstreet is not the first "Glee" star who paid tribute to Monteith. Last week, Matthew Morrison played "What I Did for Love", which was taken from the Broadway classic "A Chorus Line", and dedicated it to the late 31-year-old star.
Monteith died in Canada earlier this month after taking a lethal combination of heroin and alcohol. FOX has decided to delay the start of production on season 5 of their hit series until the beginning of August.
