Wow. If this is just a taste of what is hidden in the vault, we don't know if it should be opened. This just tore us up.
Seasons Of Love is the wonderfully moving song from Rent that Glee used in their tearful tribute to the late Cory Monteith.
But it turns out the song was initially intended for use on the show's third season finale. They even recorded a demo version with original cast of New Direction members as a graduation song. Including Cory.
And on Monday evening, six months after his passing, the track leaked online.
It's a sad song made unbelievably sadder, but it's worth it to hear Cory sing along with his beloved Lea Michele one more time.
Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to hear the original version of Seasons Of Love featuring Cory, Lea, Amber Riley, Chris Colfer, Mark Salling, Dianna Agron, and Naya Rivera.

Ugh! How many times do we have to say it?? No more bad auditions!!
Devon Talley wasted everyone's time by doing a ridiculously horrible rendition of Rent's Seasons of Love. It hurts our ears AND our hearts by having to listen to this.
Look, we're sure he's a nice guy, but he even forgot the lyrics!
As Simon said, it feels like 525,600 minutes times 100. LOLz!
If you dare, watch his audition above.

We knew it just couldn't stay away!!
Yes, Rent is returning to off-Broadway in 2011 and will be given a whole new production, complete with a different set and a whole new cast. "We love the original cast, but they're all on Social Security now," jokes a production source.
The original Broadway production cost $3.5 million and grossed nearly $300 million. The off-Broadway version will cost $1.5 million.
Original producer, Allan S. Gordon was inspired to revive the show after he attended a concert version at the Hollywood Bowl last summer. "The truth is, it really is timeless," he says. "It still works."
We agree! Now a whole new generation can experience Seasons of Love!!
Would U see the newly-revived Rent???
