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.
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.
