It's difficult to imagine Lea singing and performing musical numbers so soon after the death of her on-and-off-screen partner Cory Monteith. As the season returns, the writers and producers of Glee have decided to pay tribute to The Beatles, and Rachel will sing a heartwrenching rendition of their classic song "Yesterday" for the season premiere. This tune provides a respectful and tasteful nod to Cory.
Though it must have been beyond difficult for Lea to sing, undoubtedly it will be a moving and powerful moment to watch.

In contrast, there is an upbeat storyline in the works of one of our favorites, Naya Rivera, and newcomer to Glee, Demi Lovato. It is complemented by their performance of a well-chosen "Here Comes the Sun." These two are moving into a new relationship and their performance lightens the mood of the Glee episode with the song's skippy beat as it projects the potential happiness of their future together.
Listen to Naya Rivera and Demi Lovato sing their duet!
