Confirmed: Glee to Air Whitney Houston Tribute Episode

at . Comments

A title card at the conclusion of its winter premiere was not enough for Glee.

Sources now confirm to E! News that the Fox hit will is filming an entire episode dedicated to Whitney Houston, with an insider saying it will "not be a typical tribute" in the form of past such episodes based around Madonna or Britney Spears.

"It's using Whitney's music as a way to say goodbye," the source adds. "A way to respectfully say thank you for her music."

Look for the installment to center around seniors such as Rachel, Kurt and Finn and their difficulty in letting go.

What do you think of Glee airing a Whitney episode?

personally I think they should do a Davy Jones tribute, it is only fair, not only was she a pioneer of music but so was The Monkeesm they were one of the original mind set of boy bands and did have a numerous amount of hits. They also had great songs that did not make it main stream.


No need to take some other steps to grab more audience @ Glee such it already has massive fan following within fewer time frames. I hope Ryan Murphy rethinks about this.


Glee is a good show, but there are better entertainers than Whitney Houston. Glee should have a tribute show for Davy Jones, who just passed on 2/29. Davy was a great man, a decent family man and deserves a Glee tribute. Tony Award nomination for Oliver in 1963 and so many number one songs the list is endless.


Not only Michael this season but Saturday Night Fever 70's music like The BeeGee's music tribute also. 6 more episodes. Not enthused about Whitney Houston tribute at all. There are so many wonderful artists song to convey the emotions of the seniors. Save this tribute til s4. I agree with a prior poster I enjoyed the Madonna and Michael tributes. Britany was a flop. Whitney Houston was an artist unequal to anyone. She had flawless talent and deserves a special tribute just not this season-too soon.

There should have been a third option in the poll that said, "Rachel, Finn and Kurt? Why not also Santana and Brittany?? We need more lady kisses." or "As long as the episode is more like the Michael than the Britney/Brittany, I would interested. And Santana should get the best performance."


Omg, RM! Another tribute?! Honestly, how hard is it to stick to GOOD STORYTELLING??? No offense to Houston and may she rest in peace, but really there is no need for this. This show already has enough trouble writing sensible and coherent stories, now there going to write another episode that's based around songs! For pete's sake, stick to CHARACTER DRIVEN episodes. This show has become one big iTunes commercial. We have enough Houston songs being re-released on iTunes now.


No thnks! I think we deserve smth better then just another "tribute". Whitney was great & stuff but to be honest: I´ve never heard smth else then her AND IIII... blah. I really hope it´s the last tribute for this season, im kinda fed up with them although I loved Madonna´s Vogue from s2.

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.
