"Glee" Does Michael Jackson

"Glee" Does Michael Jackson

Unless something weird happens, I'll be tuning in to watch the MJ tribute on "Glee".

First off, I want to say that I don't watch "Glee". It's not that I have anything against it, it just doesn't fit into my limited television viewing schedule. I have caught a couple of partial episodes by chance. I have to say the show seems entertaining, and I understand why people follow it, but I just have never gotten hooked on it. 

Recently, I've noticed that the cast of "Glee" is planning on airing a special tribute show to Michael at the end of January. That's peaked my interest in trying to fit "Glee" into my viewing schedule -- well at least for this one episode. 

I've read that there will be 10 to 12 of the King of Pop's on the episode, including classic favorites such as "Rock With You", "Beat it" and "Bad". Different actors and actresses will perform. Since I don't have any faves (because I don't watch the show) it doesn't really matter who performs. What matters is they do the song justice. 

Now, I know no one can cover one of Michael's songs and do a better job than Michael himself did. I don't expect that. What I do expect is that the performers put their heart and soul into the songs and try to connect with the viewers in some sort of way. Hopefully, the cast of "Glee" has much love for the late music star and will give everything they've got to make this episode worthy of a tribute to Michael Jackson. 

Unless something weird happens, I'll be tuning in to watch the MJ tribute on "Glee". Just in case, I'll set my DVR to record the episode. I'm looking forward to something awesome. I hope it doesn't disappoint.
