“Glee” Pays Tribute To “Thriller” For The Superbowl Episode
Fox recently announced that the hit-series Glee would produce a Superbowl themed broadcast before this years event. Since the announcement, speculation has been rampant regarding which song/artist the cast would pay tribute to. A Glee source confirms to EW exclusively that Glee will be tackling Michael Jackson’s iconic Thriller for their post-Super Bowl episode…but with a twist. The Jackson classic will be performed as a mash-up with another song, yet to be chosen. But the supersized episode, which our source says will be the most expensive in Glee history will also feature covers of tunes by Black Eyed Peas, Lady Antebellum, and Katy Perry.
Although Thriller is featured in the episode, it will not be a Michael Jackson tribute but rumours have pointed to producers mulling over paying tribute to other artists such as Prince, Bruce Springsteen and Sir Elton John. (EW says to expect a John-centered tribute in one of the back-nine episodes of the current season). Whatever they choose, the episode is sure to draw its largest ratings in its history.
