UPDATE: E! Online is reporting that there will indeed be a Whitney Houston-tribute episode.
And this will apparently not be any ordinary tribute episode — or at least not like last month’s Whitney-centric episode: This one will feature eight of her songs and is said to be more of a “character piece.”
ORIGINALLY: They’ve done Madonna, Michael and, Gaga; is Glee tackling Whitney next?
When news of Whitney Houston’s passing first spread, there must have been a bit of a panic over at Fox’s hit series Glee. Just days after the tragic event, the series aired a lead character, Mercedes (Amber Riley) singing Houston’s most recognizable hit, “I Will Always Love You.” The uncanny timing was coincidental and didn’t allow the series to prep a proper tribute, so the episode simply concluded with a placard that read, “We will always love you.” But that’s not the way Glee does it. They deliver grandiose, episode-consuming tributes, so where’s Whitney’s?
