Oh hell to every yes!
Now, some have said to us that they've felt a drag in the current season of Glee. Not that it hasn't been good, but that something has been missing; something that was really prevelant in previous seasons, but blantantly missing from this one. To them we say … quit your whining! Here's your damn tribute episode!
Kicking off the new year, we're getting season three's mega-ultra-super-extraoridnary tribute to the late-great Michael Jackson. What is truly incredible about this episode is the sheer mass amount of music that will be covered and the nice homage to the full spectrum of his catalogue.
While promoting the show this weekend at FOX's Television Critics Association bash, a few of the show's cast members teased what will be coming on the episode. Let's go ahead an put up a SPOILER ALERT right here, before someone stumbles upon a tidbit of info they just don't want to know. For the rest of you…
First of all, the episode is going to feature EVERYONE, including newbie cute Grant Gustin. According to the stud, his character Sebastian is going to do something "majorly douche-y" to one of the members of New Directions that pits him against the entire group, particularly Santana. (We're guessing his target is her beloved Brittany then!) Grant reveals:
“Santana comes to Dalton [Academy] and confronts me. And then we go into ‘Smooth Criminal’ together.”
Okay. So far, so good! Now, you Dalton fans will be getting a double dose of Warbler fare, as the boys will pop up for their own number (a Jackson 5 treat) and a throwdown against the New Directions to Bad. Other HIGHlights from the episode are said to include Harry Shum Jr. and Kevin McHale waling and dancing to the Michael-Janet duet Scream, while Kurt Hummel will be serenading his beloved Blaine with the oddly picked tune, Ben. No one — and we do mean no one — is more confused by the song selection than Chris Colfer, who says:
“I have no idea [why it was chosen], but I know it was voted the worst song in history by some group. It was about a rat, but we’re singing it about Kurt’s boyfriend. I’m not sure what the connection is! They didn’t [change lyrics from "Ben" to "Blaine"]; that would have been clever, though.”
Guess we'll have to wait and see how that one pans out! LOL!
Are U looking forward to the upcoming Michael Jackson tribute? Is there a scene or song you are really looking forward to?
