'Glee' Michael Jackson Episode: Darren Criss Sings 'Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Watch out Warblers! Something tells us that Blaine Anderson, played by Broadway charmer Darren Criss, "Wanna Be Startin' Somethin'" with bad boy Sebastian Smythe (Grant Gustin).

Fox recently released the first official video from "Glee's" highly-anticipated Michael Jackson tribute episode.

Besides ten MJ songs, what can viewers expect from the upcoming "Michael" episode? Expect a showdown between Sebastian and Blaine, while Finn's (Cory Monteith) proposal to Rachel (Lea Michele) is still up in the air. Will Rachel say yes? The cast isn't spilling any secrets, but we do know that the "Glee" lovebirds will sing Jackson's classic tune, "I Just Can’t Stop Loving You."

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."

Watch the performance below.
