'Glee' Michael Jackson Episode: Official Images Released (Photos)

Posted: Updated:
"Glee," "Michael" On Fox

Wanna be startin' some excitement over the Michael Jackson episode of "Glee" (airing Tues., Jan 31 at 8 p.m. EST on Fox)?

Fox has released the first official photos from the upcoming episode, which reveal a main stage performance -- in which each member of the New Directions dons a different iconic Jackson look -- and a slushie-hurling number in a desolate garage.

Though a reported song list that hit the web in late December has not yet been confirmed, the photos give some definite hints about who will be singing what in "Michael."

The rumor that Santana and rivaling Warbler Sebastian duke it out over Jackson's "Smooth Criminal" appears to be true, based on her ensemble. And considering it's the only rumored naughty-themed group battle cry, if the song list is accurate, it looks like the New Directions and the Warblers will be crooning "Bad" in that abandoned parking garage where Blaine gets a slushie in the face.

As for the New Directions' big stage performance of "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'" -- on which Blaine takes the lead -- the photos do offer a look at which Michael each of glee clubbers is dressing as: Kevin McHale, who plays Artie, recently told The Huffington Post that the red leather "Thriller" jacket was bestowed upon him while Brittany got tied up in a "Bad" costume.

"The one number we did where everybody wore a different Michael outfit was just incredible. It was like everybody liked somebody else's more than their own," McHale said. "We had no idea what everybody was going to wear until we got to set and were like, "Oh my god! Look at yours!' ... We were all just freaking out."

Check out the photos and see if you can guess which Michaels the rest of the cast are supposed to be below!
