Matthew Morrison to Sing Original Song in 'Glee' Finale

Matthew MorrisonMatthew Morrison will sing an original song from his debut album in the 'Glee' season 2 finale.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Morrison will sing 'Still Got Tonight,' the first single off his self-titled album due out May 10.

'American Idol' season 8 winner Kris Allen co-wrote the track with Andrew Frampton and Steve Kipner. Morrison's Will Schuester will perform the ballad alone on a stage in an empty theater.

Original plans had Morrison performing a big dance number along with the song, but it was changed to allow Morrison to sing.

"It's about aspiration," 'Glee' co-creator Ryan Murphy told the Hollywood Reporter. "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."

"We worked really hard to make it feel organic to the show," Murphy said.

On Morrison's upcoming album, the actor/singer teamed with Sting, Elton John and Gwyneth Paltrow among other notable music stars.
