Matthew Morrison to sing original song on 'Glee'

The season finale of "Glee" will get a small assist from "American Idol."

Matthew Morrison, who portrays glee club adviser Will Schuester on "Glee," will sing a song from his new album, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Morrison, who is releasing his self-titled debut on Tuesday, will sing “Still Got Tonight” – a song co-written by "Idol" season 8 winner Kris Allen.  Morrison told THR that after he asked "Glee" co-creator Ryan Murphy if he could sing the original tune, Murphy made some changes to the script.

“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.’"

Murphy said the song worked for what the show's producers were considering for the episode.

“It’s about aspiration,” Murphy said. “It worked because we wanted to do a scene where Matt goes into a Broadway hall and sings something alone. Plus, Matt is such a great team player and he’s done so much for different 'Glee' charities.”

The "Glee" season finale will air on May 24.

      Oh Evel... again? Really? Can't you spew anything else? Why are your comments full of so much weak sauce? Seriously, if you're gonna troll at least do it well. You seriously must love Dane Cook bro, cause you on repeat. Someone didn't get enough love as a child apparently or maybe daddy touched your red rocket one too many times?

    Quiet please, the ADULTS are speaking. You're wasting precious time here instead of in your room where you should be planning your "Coming Out" Party! *sigh* Trolls these days. Whatever happened to originality?

      Shut your f'ing mouth! The only good thing about this show and let's be honest honey, you, is the fact that a dog can poop on you.

    Looking forward to this. I bought the song last week and I really like it. I have Kris Allen's CD and love it. Kris is a really good songwriter and Matt's voice blends beautifully with this song.

    Best of luck to both Kris and Matt. '

    Love the song, but then I've been very impressed with all the songs that Kris Allen has had a hand in writing. Downloaded it last week.
