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."

Onlookers tell Life & Style that Michele and Monteith spent Valentine's Day together in Los Angeles.

"They were into each other all night," a source tells the tabloid, adding that Cory fed spaghetti to his date that night. "She was very happy, flirting and touching Cory a lot. He just stared at her with puppy-dog eyes."

Michele split from Theo Stockman in September and rumors of a romance with her fellow Fox actor first started in November.

"As long as I get to have scenes with Cory, it makes me really happy," the actress said in the past of Glee's grueling work hours.

Since splitting with Kyle Howard, who hasn't Lauren Conrad been linked to?

She briefly dated Derek Hough, then was spotted kissing Chace Crawford.

Now it's a Glee star that she's rumored to be romantically interested in.

While out at Beacher's Madhouse at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood Saturday, Conrad was "very flirty" with Cory Monteith - and later gave him her number.

When she wasn't chatting up the cute actor, Conrad, clad in a tank top, skirt, blazer and Chanel bag, danced in her seat, chatted with friends and sipped on a cocktail.

Later in the evening, her former maybe-flame Derek Hough came by, but it wasn't too awkward as they hugged and had a friendly conversation before parting ways.

LC finished the night with champagne, staying until the club closed. Sometimes that's just how a single gal rolls. Who do you think she'll flirt it up with next?

Glee did not pick up any major Emmy Awards last night, but the Fox hit was well-represented nonetheless.

Most agree that Jane Lynch did an outstanding job as host of the ceremony - her best joke: responding to questions about why she's a lesbian with an introduction of the Entourage cast - while stars Chris Colfer, Darren Criss and Cory Monteith all walked the red carpet of the event.
