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.

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.

ok, so this picture must be from a future episode? When does the girl with the classes join the club? I cant remember her name, but she was the one who was sick and sneezed on Figgins and Mr Shue this week.

Glee Quotes

[to Kurt] You know, these Mounds bars are delicious, but you have to eat them. If you just hold them in your hand hoping that you might get to eat them one day, they're going to melt and you'll look like somebody just pooped in your hand. Don't let waiting for things to maybe work out with Blaine turn you into the guy who looks like somebody just pooped in their hand.

Blaine: Where's the bed?
Brittany: I removed it because when I imagined you two having sex I imagined a U-haul mounting a moped.
