Glee to Do ‘Thriller’ for Post–Super Bowl Episode

Though it was rumored that Glee might use its plumb post–Super Bowl spot to do a tribute episode to either Michael Jackson or Bruce Springsteen, the show will instead go the regular-episode route, performing just one song by the King of Pop. “Thriller” will get the mash-up treatment with a track to be named later (will it, per the mode of the "Umbrella/Singin' in the Rain" mash-up, be another song about monsters or killer nights?). Songs by the Black Eyed Peas, Lady Antebellum, and Katy Perry will also be included in the episode. Football fans are surely getting excited! [Inside TV/EW]
