According to The Hollywood Reporter, Fox also cut Glee’s episode order that season from 22 to 20, reportedly unable to justify the original count following a production hiatus at the start of the season.
In this case, Lea Michele and the other stars of Fox’s ” Glee ” often pre-record the songs, then lip – sync to their own singing while performing the complicated choreography in the final versions of the show’s musical numbers.

Rivera’s fellow ‘Glee’ cast members Cory Monteith and Mark Salling had untimely deaths. Monteith was found dead in a hotel room in Vancouver in 2013. He played the lead character Fin Hudson in the show. His death was later ruled accidental – a result of a drug overdose.
She was never meant to be killed off because they simply still wanted her as a dancer/Actress on the show, and Heather wanted to come back.
Instead, Coach Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch) ended up taking blame for the incident claiming the gun was her own and accidentally went off. In turn, her character was fired. Lynch has been set to leave ” Glee ” for some time as she will be joining the Broadway cast of “Annie” as Miss Hannigan in May.
Salling was found dead from an apparent suicide by hanging on January 30, 2018, near his home in the Sunland area of Los Angeles, six hours after he was reported missing.
Michele allegedly received $80,000 per episode, which could total to $1,600,000 per season. Chris Colfer and Amber Riley received $45,000 each. It is safe to say that “Glee” launched Michele to stardom and provided her opportunities after the show ended.
All cast members do their own singing and dancing. Lea Michele appeared in more episodes than any other cast member, with “Dynamic Duets”, “The Role You Were Born To Play”, and “Shooting Star” being the only ones where she’s absent.
