Gleeks, remember to take this news with a grain of salt, but what we’re about to tell you may be the greatest post-Christmas gift ever — if it’s true. The track list from “Glee’s” anticipated Michael Jackson tribute episode has reportedly leaked, and it looks pretty legit.
We already know that the cast will perform 12 songs from Jackson’s extensive music catalogue, extending back to his time with the Jackson 5. A few weeks ago, TV Guide magazine reported that the Warblers and Sebastian would also partake in the Jackson tribute, and that Blaine would take on “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin,’” while Finn and Rachel would do a duet of “I Just Can’t Stop Loving You.”
Even though this list has not been confirmed by Fox or anyone over at “Glee,” judging from what we already know of the episode, it doesn’t sound too far off. However, we’re surprised that the show’s token Michael Jackson cover crooner Artie (Kevin McHale) was shut out from a majority of the tracks. Artie has previously covered “P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing),” “Thriller” and “Man In the Mirror” for New Directions. According to this track list, he only gets one MJ song of his own — “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough.”
