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."

Got any scoop on The Office? — Matt
NATALIE:
Someone (who may or may not be depicted above — Andy's da boss now, so he gets the photo) has a secret girlfriend! We have to admit we're a little saddened by the development, as it dashes the hopes — perhaps temporarily — of a hookup we thought was in the makings. Guesses?

On Glee, how can McKinley High have two glee clubs? They can't send them both to sectionals, right? — Jessica

X Factor Episode Recap: "Judges' Homes #2"

The X Factor

It's been four X Factor-free days and I bet you were developing cold sweats and severe anxiety — right? Well, thank goodness we're back at the judges' amazing mansions and can continue to feel completely inadequate about our own lives and homes again.

Jazzlyn Little starts out the evening by underwhelming us with a tired rendition of "I Will Survive." I honestly didn't think it was possible to make that song a snoozefest, but Jazzlyn proved me wrong. Given the talent she's demonstrated in the competition, this was totally... read more
