LOS ANGELES (AP) - The cast and crew of "Glee" is saying goodbye to star Cory Monteith, who died earlier this month.

Twentieth Century Fox Television says "Glee" co-star and Monteith's real-life girlfriend Lea Michele and show creator Ryan Murphy gathered the show's cast and crew for a memorial on Thursday. They shared memories and music in "an emotional celebration" of Monteith's life.

The 31-year-old actor was found dead in a hotel room in Vancouver, British Columbia, on July 13. An autopsy revealed he died of an overdose of heroin and alcohol.

Murphy said recently that the show plans a tribute episode honoring Monteith that will address the death of his character, Finn.

"Glee" is set to begin its fifth season on Sept. 26, a week later than originally planned.
