Cause Gleeks gonna be getting their Michael Jackson on.
A huge topic of speculation amongst Gleeks this year has been Glee's upcoming post-Super Bowl show. Considering that it is following the biggest sporting event of the year, naturally fans are expecting something HUGE to come out of Ryan Murphy's hit factory T.V. show. In the past, big episodes have been primarily tribute shows to pop music's biggest stars like Madonna and Brit-Brit.
Guess what? Ain't happening. Know what is?
A full-blown, epic MASH-UP of two iconic Michael Jackson songs!!! Amazing!
Right now, all we know is half of the equation, but it really is a biggie. The kids of McKinley will be tackling arguably MJ's biggest hit ever, Thriller! Totally rad, right?
But wait, there's more!
Sources explain that this is bound to go down as one of the most expensive episodes in the show's history and will feature cover songs from OTHER artists besides MJ, like the Black Eyed Peas, Lady Antebellum, and Katy Perry.
Want more? Fine, here's more!
The episode won't be a tribute show, but it will in it's own way be dedicated to it's on-air predecessor. The theme of the episode will be sports, following the school's football team and Sue Sylvester's Cheerios as they head into major sporting competitions. Gleeks can expect appearances from Darren Criss (squeal!) and Dot-Marie Jones as Coach Beiste and as General Motors is co-sponsoring the episode, more than likely the episode will be longer with limited commercial interruptions.
And we're spent…and completely stoked. This doesn't sound like it's going to disappoint any Gleeker out there!
