Will Rachel tell Finn yes? Are Sam and Mercedes back together? Will sneaky Warbler Sebastian make another effort to split up Blaine and Kurt? Sure, these things may all come out in tonight’s episode of Glee, but what we’re really looking forward to are the 10 — count ’em 10 — Michael Jackson songs that will be featured on the show. As the New Directions head toward Regionals, the rivalry with the Warblers intensifies and in the process, the King of Pop’s legacy will get a bigger track listing than any previous Glee tribute show (the Britney Spears episode had five songs, the Fleetwood Mac one had six). Some of Jackson’s biggest hits will get the McKinley treatment:

“Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’”

“I Want You Back”



“Never Can Say Goodbye”

“Human Nature”

“Smooth Criminal”


“I Just Can’t Stop Loving You”

“Black or White”

Check out the preview video we shared with you last week (to get you through that lonely week without an episode!) below:

Join us to chat about the episode live at 8p.m. Eastern/7 p.m. Central here, come back to this post after you’ve watched ”Michael” to share your reactions, and look for our full recap tomorrow! It’s sure to be a thriller…

Are you moving the couch so you can dance to “Michael!” in your living room tonight PopWatchers, or is that just me?
