The Michael Jackson tribute episode of Glee — aptly titled “Michael” — is just three weeks away (it airs January 31), and TV Guide Magazine got the inside scoop and some pics from the set. “Michael’s kids are somewhat fans of the show, so the estate was lovely,” says show runner Ryan Murphy. “In fact, they liked the writing so much that halfway through the planning they asked us to do another one about him next year.” Ten MJ tunes will be performed by the cast, four of which are “Rock With You” (which wasn’t included on the supposed set list that leaked last month), “Bad”, “Smooth Criminal” and “Black Or White”. Flip through the following pics from Glee‘s tribute to the King Of Pop. [Via ONTD]
