Matthew Morrison Dedicates Song to Cory Monteith

by at . Comments

The show had to go on for Matthew Morrison last night. But it wasn't easy.

In the wake of castmate Cory Monteith's death, this Glee star performed at the club 54 Below in New York City last night.

"Matt came out before the show started and said, 'We lost a great young man too soon,'" a witness tells Us Weekly. "He said Cory was a beautiful person." Then he told the crowd, "You came out to see a show, I came out to do one, so let's honor Cory with this performance."

He proceeded to choke up while singing a rendition of "What I Did for Love," which Lea Michele covered on the Season 2 premiere.

"He was very emotional on stage," the source adds. "It was difficult for him to get up to perform, but he did not want to disappoint anyone."

Michele, who had been dating Monteith for over a year at the time of his passing, has not spoken out since the tragedy. But her rep asked for privacy during this "devastating time."
