Glee to Rush Together a Whitney Houston Tribute Episode?

at . Comments

On this Tuesday's episode of Glee, Amber Riley's Mercedes will sing a cover of "I Will Always Love You."

This is merely a coincidence, of course, following yesterday's tragic passing of music icon Whitney Houston - but sources now tell E! News the show is considering a last-minute, extended tribute to the latte artist.

"Yes, we are trying [to do a tribute]," a show insider tells E! News. "The episode had been locked but we are going back in."

Said Matthew Morrison - at Clive Davis' pre-Grammy party last night - of his show airing a Whitney track a couple days after her death: "It's kind of eerie."

The Grammys, meanwhile, will pay tribute to Houston themselves tonight, with Jennifer Hudson reportedly taking center stage for a medley of the legend's hits.

Listen, people. If you're gonna come to a Glee SITE, then stop ratting on it. And be thankful that they honored such an incredible artist.


@vampirelover08, you mean her EX-husband, but whatever. I didn't say she was a bad person or anything and it has nothing to do with having respect for the dead. But why should anybody get so much attention just because they're dead? It's always the same with celebrities that nobody cared about. When they die, suddenly everybody pays tribute to them, although before they were dead nobody paid tribute to them. It's stupid.


@stella Have a little respect for the dead. Her daughter and her husband and the rest of her family care about her.


Nobody cares about Whitney Houston. Her songs were all the same and she was famous 20 years ago. So not worth a tribute on Glee.


Amber did a beautiful job on this song.


Every other Glee episode seems like they rushed to put it together so what's one more


Oh, Lord, this is a bad idea. I mean, kudos to them if they do pull it off tastefully and respectfully, but Glee is bad enough when it spends weeks shooting an episode. I hope this last minute addition doesn't come off as tacky or unpolished.


Glee Quotes

[to Finn] You know, I don't really know what's going to happen between us, but I know that you used to be the guy that would make me feel like the most special girl in the whole world, and it doesn't feel that way anymore. Now it just feels sad and confusing. And the worst part is that it doesn't even feel that bad anymore.


I'm engorged with venom, and triumph.
