Matthew Morrison will sing one of his own songs on Glee season 2 finale!
The hunky actor – best known as teacher Will Schuester in the hit Fox TV show – will sing ‘Still Got Tonight’, which will be the lead single from his first solo album, on the New York themed episode.
Matthew will perform the song alone on an empty stage. The track was co-written by former ‘American Idol’ winner Kris Allen.
He told The Hollywood Reporter: “It was going to be just a big dance piece with me doing this big dance number. But they said, ‘We want you to sing it and make it a big moment.’ ”
Dana Walden, 20th Century Fox Television chairman, agreed to allow the track to be put in the finale – which airs in the US on May 24 – only if it fitted the character.
‘Glee’ creator Ryan Murphy said: “It’s about aspiration. It worked because we wanted to do a scene where Matt goes into a Broadway hall and sings something alone. Plus, Matt is such a great team player and he’s done so much for different ‘Glee’ charities.
“We worked really hard to make it feel organic to the show.”
Matt recently confirmed there would be a death at the end of the second season of ‘Glee’.
He said: “Somebody’s dying. Obviously I’m not going to tell you who it is, but it is no-one you would probably expect.
“The episode right before the finale is called ‘Funeral’.”
