For the next round, he would have to sing.  He said he had never sung before and went out and bought a Billy Joel CD.  He decided to sing "Honesty" for his audition.

He said he left the audition about 4:00 p.m. and received a call about 4:35 p.m. that he had the part.

When Ms. DeGeneres asked if he was dating, he said he didn't have time.  She showed a picture of him with singer, Taylor Swift, and he said that the picture was cute, but they were friends.

Ms. DeGeneres gave Mr. Monteith a large set of "Ellen" drumsticks that she asked him to use on the show sometime
