While “Glee” is gearing up to celebrate Christmas in the Dec. 13 episode “Extraordinary Merry Christmas,” directed by star Matthew Morrison, the cast is currently shooting the upcoming Michael Jackson tribute episode.
Star Kevin McHale shared his excitement on Twitter, writing, “This MJ ep is gonna be crazyyyy. Can’t believe we’re doing this! Just did such a fun scene, can’t wait for you all to see! ahhh!”
For those who can’t wait until January to find out more about the special MJ installment, TV Guide has more details. Apparently, Mr. Schuester will host “Michael Week” after the Troubletones ladies get sad that they didn’t sing the Jackson medley at Sectionals. The episode will include 12 songs spanning Jackson’s entire career.
Specifically, Blaine will sing “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’,” Finn and Rachel will duet on “I Just Can’t Stop Loving You,” and the Warblers will also get a track. Look for more details to leak as the air date looms closer.
Meanwhile, Morrison spoke to E! Online about what’s coming up for his character. He says, “When we come back from the break after the holidays it’s going to be a lot of Will and a lot of really great storylines. It’s already out there that the next episode is called ‘Proposal,’ and there’s going to be a proposal in a way you’ve never seen or could have ever imagined in your life.”
That doesn’t necessarily mean that Will and Emma are getting hitched, but Morrison is on board with the idea. “That’d be kind of fun! That would be great,” he says.
