Michael Jackson - Jackson Set For Glee Treatment

Michael Jackson's relatives have given their personal approval for Glee bosses to make a special tribute episode featuring the King Of Pop's tunes.
Co-creator Ryan Murphy has received the Jackson family's "enthusiastic support" after convincing them the show would serve as a respectful homage to the late icon.
The special installment, due to air in the U.S. on 24 January (12), will feature 10 to 12 Jackson songs.
The cast of the hit TV musical previously paid tribute to Jackson by recreating his Thriller video on a school football field, while also covering Man in the Mirror and the Jackson 5's Abc.

The Jackson family has no control over Michael's music. The Estate/Sony has to give approval for 'Glee' to use any of MJ's solo work.

May I remind you, Zen2580, that Glee has already used a Michael Jackson song in their show - they covered Thriller. They will be using his songs to introduce a new generation of people to his music, which can't be a bad thing, right?
