‘Glee’ Whitney Houston Tribute Makes Us Wanna Dance With Somebody — PICS

Glee Whitney Houston TributeYou’ve read the headline and now you’re singing the classic Whitney Houston song. Don’t deny it. But fully expect to continue singing, because we’ve got a sneak peek at Glee’s swiftly approaching Whitney Houston tribute.

The series threw together a quickie tribute immediately following Houston’s passing for an episode that coincidentally featured Amber Riley singing Houston’s biggest hit, “I Will Always Love You”  — the episode simply stuck a “Whitney, We Will Always Love You” card in the end credits. Of course, because tribute episodes are one of Glee’s favorite guilty pleasures (and, oh, do they have many), it’s only natural that the series devote an entire hour of television to one of music’s greatest performers.

And from the looks of these stills, the best of which feature Brittany and Santana reenacting what looks like Whitney’s iconic “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” music video, we can expect a campy, sentimental good time. (Not to mention Brittany and Santana nabbing much-needed time in the spotlight.)

“Dance With Somebody” airs April 27 at 8 PM ET/PT on Fox, and the first Glee episode since the winter finale airs April 10. Are you ready to cringe and dance and smile all at the same time?

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
