"Glee" songs have a way of leaking online before they officially air on the show, so it's no surprise some of the covers from the Fox hit's upcoming Michael Jackson tribute episode have started trickling out.
Agron always sounds best on the retro tunes -- remember her lovely "I Say a Little Prayer" during Season 1? We dig the sweet tone of her voice, so this Jackson 5 track was a fantastic pick for her.
Listen to the song below, and tell us which "Glee" Mj cover you're most anticipating. You can find the full track list here. Personally, we can't wait to hear what mind-blowing things Kevin McHale does with "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough."
Fans of Quinn Fabray finally have something to celebrate because Dianna Agron's first "Glee" Season 3 solo has arrived -- and it's a cover of Michael Jackson's "Never Can Say Goodbye" for "Glee's" anticipated "Michael" tribute episode.
We already know that the cast will perform 12 songs from Jackson's extensive music catalogue, extending back to his time with the Jackson 5. A few weeks ago, TV Guide magazine reported that the Warblers and Sebastian would also partake in the Jackson tribute, and that Blaine would take on "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin,'" while Finn and Rachel would do a duet of "I Just Can't Stop Loving You."
Take a listen to Quinn's sweet soprano cover of "Never Can Say Goodbye" below.

Glee 3.08 "Hold On To Sixteen" Recap - Trout Fishing
Glee continues on toward its holiday mid-season finale with “Hold on to Sixteen" which sees Finn working to re-recruit Sam Evans (Chord Overstreet) to the New Directions, while Quinn faces a difficult decision on what to do with sensitive information, and Tina encourages Mike to pursue his dreams.
Don’t have the time to spare? Then here's what you missed on Glee’s “Hold on to Sixteen!”
Meeting up in the halls, Quinn reveals to Rachel that Ms. Shelby Corcoran (Idina Menzel) has been having student-teacher relations with Puck, for which she plans to report to the school. Rachel chimes in that technically speaking, their actions aren’t against the law, and jeopardizing Ms. Corcoran’s career would only be huting Quinn’s biological daughter Beth, truly hitting rock bottom.

Sam Evans is back. That blond-haired rack-of-abs returned tonight to serve as pinch-hitter to the downtrodden New Directions in tonight’s Sectionals competition. Where has he been?
Well, let’s just say he made a little detour by way of Kentucky, having transferred in order to help his family survive the recession. (Yes, hard it is to believe, there’s some realism to Glee.) But instead of scooping ice cream for the local Dairy Queen, he’s scooping up »

But aside from the funny-but-also-weird-when-you-think-about-the-fact-that-he's-underage bit in the beginning about Sam stripping for money (and the subsequent country-fied "Red Solo Cup"), there was actually very little Sam in the episode.
The episode was more about togetherness and sharing and acceptance and all those warm, fuzzy things, with a good chunk of storyline dedicated to Mike Chang's ongoing daddy issues. While we frankly don't care a whole lot about Mike's home life (we do care a little!), we do appreciate that this gave us opportunities for like three Tina scenes. Girlfriend consistently gets the shaft on screen time and solos, so we were ecstatic that this episode featured so much of her.
Of course, it would've been better if she had a storyline of her own, »
The King of Pop is the subject of Season 3's sole tribute episode (in the vein of Madonna and Britney Spears). According to TV Guide, the January 24 episode will feature around a dozen of Jackson's biggest hits.
The reason it took so long to announce is because Murphy spent a great deal of time convincing Jackson's family that the show would pay the appropriate respect. According to TV Guide, it paid off -- he now has "their enthusiastic support."
Interestingly, the cast covers two Jackson numbers in tonight's episode (Dec. 6), with Tina, Kurt and Mike doing the Jackson 5's "ABC" and Finn, Puck, Blaine and Mike singing "Man in the Mirror." (A lotta Mike Chang this week, »
Alec Baldwin served up a double helping of impersonations during his appearance on Monday night's "Conan," singing some old school Jackson 5 to set up his impression of "30 Rock" co-star Tracy Morgan. Baldwin, who returns for the sixth season of "30 Rock" on Jan. 12, said Morgan used to unwind in his dressing room by watching tapes of a young Michael Jackson. Also read: Alec Baldwin for NYC Mayor?

X Factor USA contestant Chris Rene revealed a family connection to Michael Jackson during this week's King of Pop-themed performance show. In a video package before his performance of 'I'll Be There' on Wednesday night's Top 7 live show, the singer explained that his grandfather had written the Jackson 5 track 'Rockin' Robin'. Rene said: "When I found out it was Michael Jackson week I was really excited because my family has a connection to him. My grandfather was a songwriter. He wrote 'Rockin' Robin' and then the Jackson 5 picked that song up." When asked by The Hollywood Reporter backstage why he hadn't performed 'Rockin' Robin', he explained: "We thought about it, but then we decided this song was a better song for me.

Michael Jackson’s “The Immortal World Tour” opened Oct. 2 in Montreal. The show, produced in collaboration between Cirque du Soleil and Jackson’s estate, features ambitious reinventions of some of the King of Pop’s biggest hits, performed by a live band as Cirque’s acrobats do seemingly impossible feats. The band, led by keyboardist Greg Phillinganes, plays to the late singer’s vocals. Similarly to Cirque du Soleil’s tremendsously popular “Love,” which is built around the Beatles' hits, “Immortal” takes Jackson’s music (solo and with the Jackson 5) and creates mash-ups and new arrangements. However, in the case of “Love,” the musical designers were »
Is there an actor out there working right now who.s capable of playing The King of Pop? Would an up-and-coming talent be crazy to try? We.re about to find out, as Variety says that the estate of the late Michael Jackson reportedly wants to mount a full-scale biopic now that the trial of Dr. Conrad Murray has come to a close. John Branca, executor of the Jackson estate, allegedly has approached director Ivan Reitman and his Montecito Picture Company about the possibility of putting Mj.s life on screen. The trade elaborates that the film would .only cover certain periods of the late singer.s life,. but that raises more questions that answers. Will it go all the way back to the Jackson 5 era, with a pre-teen Michael belting out Motown hits in angelic falsetto? Will it focus on the pop singer.s Golden Era of Off »
Michael Jackson's brother Jermaine Jackson has said that Conrad Murray deserves a long jail sentence. Murray was convicted of Jackson's involuntary manslaughter on Monday and will remain behind bars as he waits to be sentenced on November 29. The physician was found guilty of administering a lethal dose of the anaesthetic propofol to Jackson in the moments before his death on June 25, 2009. Jermaine was in the courtroom with several members of the Jackson family as the verdict was read this week and watched as Murray was led away in handcuffs. The Jackson 5 singer told The Ellen DeGeneres Show that Murray's maximum sentence of four years behind bars simply isn't enough punishment for contributing to a man's death. "I think the sentencing [is] very soft. I mean, you would probably do more time if you stole," Jermaine said. (more) »

It's hard to think of something more embarrassing for a 17-year-old boy than going to the mall with his mom to buy jeans and having her measure his inseam while all his friends fall out of their food court chairs giggling.
Well, except being a 17-year-old international pop superstar and having your manager discuss the status of your little fellas with all the world. Cue to what we can only imagine was a very red-faced Justin Bieber slouching on a couch during a cover story interview with Billboard magazine recently in which his longtime manager, Scooter Braun, dropped this bon mot. "Vocally, his balls have dropped," Braun said of the vocal changes fans might hear on the singer's upcoming Christmas album, Under the Mistletoe.
Wow, okay. Thanks Scooter, but seriously dude, Tmi.
Of course, Bieber isn't the only teen dream who's had to deal with ch-ch-ch-changes to his voice at the peak of his powers. »
