'Glee' Cast's Take on Michael Jackson Is Anything But 'Bad' (LISTEN)

'Glee' castFrom the second I first heard that the Glee kids at McKinley would only be doing ONE tribute episode this season, I knew it was going to be a) all about the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, and b) epic. With that said, it's crazy to believe that the MJ episode (appropriately titled "Michael") is almost here. Next Tuesday, we're finally going to hear all of the songs from that totally amazing setlist we snuck a peek at a few weeks ago.

Prepare yourselves my fellow gleeks -- because I have a little treat for ya. Two of the songs from the January 31 episode, "Bad" and "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'," have leaked onto the Interwebs, and The Stir has them for you right here!

Prepare yourself for a little smooth sounding Blaine Anderson. Swoon!


First up, "Bad" sung by the Warblers and the New Directions:

Wowza. That's pretty intense! Doesn't it just make you want to dance? Guilty. I think my favorite part of it all is how outrageously fierce Santana sounds.

Now, "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'" featuring Blaine:

Ahhhh! The soothing quality in actor Darren Criss's voice is just unreal. I can only wonder how this song fits into the plot of things. Could Sebastian be causing some problems in between Blaine and Kurt again? I mean, if it causes him to sing this little number, I guess I can't be mad about it.

While both of these renditions are pretty awesome, I think we can all be in agreement though that it's hard to top Michael himself. Can't wait to hear the rest of 'em next week!
