"Glee"'s gonna thrill ya Super Bowl night, Gleeks, and we couldn't be more excited! Despite the fact that Ryan Murphy chose not to do a Michael Jackson or Bruce Springsteen themed-episode for the big night, it looks like he still wants to honor the King of Pop. According to Entertainment Weekly, "Thriller" will be performed as a mash-up with another song that hasn't been decided yet.
The episode will center around the football theme of the night and will focus on the cheerleading regionals and the local football championship. The "Thriller" mash-up will be performed during half-time at the game. The episode also promises appearances from fan fave Blaine (Darren Criss) and Coach Beiste (Dot-Marie Jones).
EW reported that the episode will also feature covers of the Black Eyed Peas, Lady Antebellum, and Katy Perry. Can we be the first to suggest finding a way to incorporate "Where Is The Love?" and "Hot and Cold" into the episode's plot?
Apparently, if the episode had been a tribute to an iconic pop star, Ryan Murphy had been planning on featuring the music of Elton John and not MJ or Springsteen as was previously rumored. EW says that we can expect an Elton John tribute episode during the back nine episodes of this season.
What other artists do you hope get a tribute in the Super Bowl episode?
