Glee Super Bowl Episode to Honor Michael Jackson, Katy Perry and More

by at . Comments

Glee is set to air one Thriller of an episode on February 6.

Fox will air a special installment of this hit following Super Bowl XLIV, an hour Entertainment Weekly confirms will feature a mash-up of Michael Jackson's most famous single. But the episode - which will be the most expensive in show history - will NOT be a full-on MJ tribute, as had been previously rumored.

Sectionals Song

In fact, sources say Jackson will be just one of several singers covered on the episode. Others will include the Black Eyed Peas, Lady Antebellum and Katy Perry.

Among other tidbits revealed by the magazine:
  • Consistent with the major sporting event that will preceded it, this installment will center around the local football championship, along with the Cheerios at Regionals.
  • Both Blaine and Coach Beiste will appear on it.
  • General Motors will co-sponsor the episode, resulting in reduced commercial interruptions.
  • There will likely be an Elton John tribute episode at some point in 2011.

Glee Quotes

You know, the New York Times said, um, half the increase in support of gay marriage is due to generational turnover. That's what smart people call 'crazy, uptight bitches dying.' You guys lost, okay? And honestly the rest of us are just going about our business being normal and waiting for you not to be around, and not because you can stop us from getting married, but because you're kind of annoying.


I just want somebody to love me.
