Glee Video: Watch New Directions Bust Out Their Best MJ Moves in "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin"

Glee

Michael Jackson is the latest musical icon getting the star treatment on Glee, and from the looks of things, the New Directions kids have been doing their homework when it comes to the songs, the moves and — just as important — the outfits Jackson made famous.

In this video from the King of Pop's tribute episode, airing Tuesday at 8/7c on Fox, the group performs his 1983 hit "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin.'" Blaine (Darren Criss) takes the lead, dancing on his tip toes (and imitating that notorious pelvis thrust) while sporting Jackson's signature combo of... read more

First Look Photo Gallery: Glee's Michael Jackson Tribute

Glee

Despite an exhausting shooting schedule, the Glee cast had a blast playing dress up yet again — this time in red leather, glittery gloves and fedoras, for their Michael Jackson tribute episode, airing Jan. 31. "One of our challenges," explains co-costume designer Jennifer Eve, "was to take the inspiration of Michael Jackson but keep the iconic Glee characterizations."

But it's not all sparkle and no substance. According to Cory Monteith, who plays Finn, "What makes 'Michael' a great tribute episode is that it successfully carries a lot of our storylines forward while at the same time paying homage to the King of Pop."

On The Set: Glee's Michael Jackson Tribute Episode

Glee

The thunder's just stopped rumbling, but a storm's still a-brewin' in a chilly parking garage just outside the Paramount Studio gates on a gusty Hollywood night. Inside, oblivious drivers exiting for the evening pass choreographer Zach Woodlee putting the warmly bundled-up Glee kids through a rigorous routine. Having only just been introduced to their complicated dance moves, the physically drained troupe will be in costume and before cameras in less than an hour shooting their big "Bad" production number — the crown jewel in a tribute episode to the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, that airs on Tuesday, January 31.

As the deafening prerecorded track plays "I'm bad, I'm bad/Come on/You know it," Woodlee, a recognizable face himself as one of the judges on Oxygen's The Glee Project, shouts his marching orders: "Walk, walk. Swipe, swipe, punch. Now swing! Ladies, you have to start backing up against the wall like you're scared." Woodlee separates Lea Michele (Rachel), Naya Rivera (Santana), Dianna Agron (Quinn), Heather Morris (Brittany) and Jenna Ushkowitz (Tina) from the boys in a dance-off pitting the New Directions against the Warblers. "I promise you this will work. Well... maybe."

Katy Perry

Katy Perry has been named MTV's first-ever Artist of the Year.

"Perry is one of the new millennium's biggest pop stars, and she matched some of pop's greatest icons on the charts this year," MTV wrote on its website. "She made us giggle with an LOL-worthy hosting stint on SNL and made her big-screen debut voicing the iconic Smurfette in The Smurfs. Offscreen, she's proved to be the kind of girl that can laugh off rumors that she's pregnant and getting divorced. She's loud, cool and a real girl's girl."
