'Glee'-Cap: Michael Jackson Invades McKinley High

King of Pop's takeover leads to some head-scratching song choices.

"Glee" paid tribute to Michael Jackson during Tuesday night's episode and, shockingly, kept the story moving along in the midst of several MJ-inspired musical numbers. Kurt, Rachel and Quinn all received great news about college, Rachel finally accepted Finn's proposal and evil Sebastian's plot to harm Kurt with a doctored slushee backfired when Blaine took the hit for his boyfriend.

Yet the forced "all Michael, all the time" song selection led to some head-scratching scenes including Kurt, Rachel and Finn serenading an injured Blaine with Jackson's love song to a rat, "Ben," and two different music-video re-enactments only appealed to Jackson superfans. The rest of us can enjoy my latest "Glee-cap"! Hit play on the embedded video and sing along with these lyrics.

"Glee," "Glee" 's really hit the skids

MJ would have loved all the singing kids

Time for a tribute

Veiled as a dispute

They all imitate

Michael's vocal takes

Wish they didn't try

To simply ape his sigh

I guess "Glee" got paid

In tickets to Cirque du Soleil

It's bad! It's bad! Come on!

Oh, pointless themed episodes

Make me push fast-forward on my TiVo

Artie's "Scream" remake

Complete with head shakes

Tired of getting dissed

Mike Chang's now his sis?

Warblers fight for songs

No prob doing wrong

They're all blindly cruel

Since Blaine left their school

Quinn sang goodbye to every ex

Have a seat, this'll take awhile

(She's had lots of sex)

Quinn got into Yale

And I'm all, "How?"

Then got distracted by Damian's hyper eyebrows

They're bad! They're bad! Relax them!

If you don't, I will come wax them!

Slutpig tried to slushee Kurt

But Blaine got in the way

Left him needing surgery

How dare you hurt my gay!

Despite Blaine's cute eye patch

Kurt is hungry for revenge

But that's a different better show on ABC, my friend

"Glee," drop the shtick, you're better than this

Forcing Jackson songs is just as bad as this forced kiss

Just because you can afford it doesn't mean it has worth

Unless you're trying to give me nightmares

In that case, it worked

No more bells and whistles, please

Clever songs are all you need

I get it, Ryan Murphy, Blaine had to bleed

So Darren could star in "How to Succeed"

But making Kurt and Finchel sing "Ben" to Blaine

Is the very definition of insane

I hope next week they get it right

With no stupid guests hogging "Glee" 's spotlight

[Cue clip of next week's episode starring Ricky Martin]
