Cory Monteith's untimely death in July was devastating and shocking, especially for Glee fans, who have watched Monteith break out as character Finn Hudson. We've watched Finn go from singing football player to teacher and college student, and unfortunately we won't get to see the rest of the character's evolution. It's a tough realization, but in anticipation of tonight's Glee tribute to Monteith, we're looking back at his most memorable moments on the musical show, starting with that unforgettable performance of "Don't Stop Believin'."
