This week’s Glee episode, “Michael,” is going to feature a number of the King of Pop’s iconic songs, including “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin'” and “Smooth Criminal.”
Curious as to how the music of Michael Jackson fits into this week’s stories?
Here’s the synopsis via Fox: “New Directions battles the Dalton Warblers and their devious new leader, Sebastian (Grant Gustin), for the right to perform a Michael Jackson song at Regionals. Meanwhile, Kurt (Chris Colfer) and Rachel (Lea Michele) receive news regarding their admissions process at NYADA, and things continue to heat up between Sam (Chord Overstreet) and Mercedes (Amber Riley).”
Battles, love and acceptance. Could there be a library of music more appropriate for these themes? We think not!
Does that make you want to say “GleeHee?” Okay, we can’t take credit for that. The adorable Chris Colfer (Kurt) has been throwing that little gem around to get fans pumped for the big episode.
Feast your eyes on Santana and Sebastian going head-to-head in “Smooth Criminal.”
To our delight, Blaine’s also getting in on the action with a crazy-cool version of “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin'” that you won’t want to miss.
Michael Jackson aside, there’s also another order of business the episode has to take care of: Finn’s proposal to Rachel.
Will she say yes? Will she break his heart? Only time will tell.
