Best Tribute to Michael Jackson on TV EVER!
31 January 2012 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

As a loyal fan of Michael Jackson -- I have watched every tribute that has been aired to this magnificent human being.

This episode of Glee is extraordinary. From the very start - it captured my soul. In fact, I will be sad to see it end and wish my DVD was hooked up to record it. I will be buying this episode on DVD, for sure.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that every kind of person is represented, including FEMALES. Simply an outstanding tribute by amazingly talented people inspired by the greatest entertainer of all time.

Where ever he is, I am certain he is smiling.
