Lea Michele Records a ‘Beautiful & Perfect Song,’ Tweets First Pic on Set of ‘Glee’ Season 5
She pretty much tweeted that she recorded a track for Season 5. The cast always records in advance, and one can’t help but think it has something to do with the show’s planned tribute ep for Monteith, who played Finn Hudson and will be written out. That ep will be the season’s third and be Beatles-themed. Michele’s tweet is below.
Couldn’t have picked a more beautiful & perfect song to start the year with..

Proceeds of the sales of music from the Monteith episode will go towards a fund in the late star’s name, according to PEOPLE.
Lea also tweeted her first photo back on set.

Meanwhile, with ‘Glee’ beginning production on Season 5, a source said that things were emotional, which is to be expected. “Today was first day back. Last week was rehearsals but today was first official day of production on new season,” an insider said. “Everything went as well as it could have. Very emotional but everyone is starting to move forward. Getting back on track.”
Another source declared, “It was business as usual.”
Cast member Chris Colfer previously stated that returning would be hard, simply because the cast and crew are such a family and have never dealt with something as painful as this.
“I know we’ve always come together – always – in the past, because we are such a family in the cast and the crew,” the actor, who plays Kurt, said. “I’m assuming things will be very different, and I’m sure they’ll be difficult at first. But…. We’ll see. I think I’m positive.”
Darren Criss, who plays Blaine, also tweeted a photo from the set and noted the return to work.
