The Fox hit series "Glee" will pay tribute to late pop legend Michael Jackson and The Jackson Five on the Jan. 24, 2012, episode, according to TVGuide.com.
In the upcoming episode, Will Schuester (Matthew Morrison) declares that it is "Michael Week" at McKinley High, since members of Shelby Corcoran's (Idina Menzel) Trouble Tones missed out on the Jackson medley performed at sectionals.
The episode will feature 12 Jackson songs that span the artist's entire career. Blaine, played by upcoming How to Succeed star Darren Criss, will take on "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'." Rachel and Finn, played by Lea Michele and Cory Monteith, respectively, will perform "I Just Can't Stop Loving You."
Also, Sebastian Smythe (Grant Gustin) and the Warblers will be featured in the Jackson episode.
