On Feb. 6, Fox will reward its hit show, Glee, with the best lead-in of the year: The Super Bowl. And Glee isn't about to miss an opportunity to shine for that extra, added gaggle of viewers. Entertainment Weekly has reported that the post-Super Bowl episode is not only supersized, but also the most expensive Glee episode to date. (And maybe even the priciest of any TV show.)
What will viewers get for the money? The regular episode (i.e. not a specific tribute to one artist) will feature its own, high school football game. During that game's halftime, there will be a performance mash-up of Michael Jackson's "Thriller" and another, as-yet-unnamed song. The end product isn't what you'd expect. "It's definitely Glee-ified," Lea Michele told Broadwayworld.com.
Since Black Eyed Peas is the actual Super Bowl's halftime entertainment, it's only natural that the Glee kids would take on one of their songs. Gleeks can also watch for covers of Lady Antebellum and Katy Perry. (Ten bucks says the Perry song will be "Hot N Cold," since they did "Teenage Dream" last month.)
Will Couric sing? If so, I hope she's got pipes. Lots of people are going to be watching!
What song do you think they will mash up "Thriller" with? Chime in below!
