Matthew Morrison to Sing His Own Song on Glee Finale

Morrison's character Will Schuester will perform the sweeping ballad, which was co-written by American Idol Season 8 winner Kris Allen along with Andrew Frampton and Steve Kipner, alone on a stage in an empty theater -- a far cry from the big dance number that the series had originally planned -- in a scene directed by Glee creator Ryan Murphy.

Morrison told THR that, after he first approached Murphy about including one of his songs in an episode, the producers opted to change the scene into something bigger. “It was going to be just a big dance piece with me doing this big dance number,” Morrison said. “But they said, ‘We want you to sing it and make it a big moment.’ ”
