There are no plot details yet. But another spoiler, Gleekto, is reporting that “Into the Groove” will be performed by Kurt (Chris Colfer) Starchild (Adam Lambert) and the rest of the Madonna cover band. Details on who sings what is forthcoming. I’ll update this post with the info when it’s available.
UPDATE: Adam is filming (Oct 30) for Episode 7 titled “Puppet Master” according to a reliable spoiler.
For NYC they’re doing 5.07. The scene is set at a hipster bar in NYC. It’s a nice piano bar and the extras are instructed to dress very hipster-y. There’s a specific group of hipsters who are booked as “hot guys” and told to dress nice and have their hair done up like they are “every man or woman’s fantasy guy.”
The interesting part: The idea of the scene is that it’s Kurt’s fantasy. It is noted specifically that since Kurt is all about the fashion, and this is a nice, hipster piano bar club, they want the extras to come looking very nice.
(ETA: Demi, Adam, Naya, Chris, and Lea are all filming for the NYC scenes.)
On Oct 29, Lea Michele tweeted this:

It’s pretty clear the gang is filming Madonna’s “Into the Groove”.
If true (and I think it is) it marks the return of Adam Lambert after his episode 4 debut. Also, it looks like Kurt dealt with his insecurities and agreed to let Starchild into the band!
The title “Puppet Master” looks to be literal, as actual puppets are involved, per tweets from Ryan Murphy. It all looks rather Avenue Q.
Look at these cute New Directions puppets.
And Blaine surrounded by puppets!
The New York City kids get puppet doppelgangers too!
According to the photo captions, Marly and Jake perform together and Sue reveals the story behind her ubiquitous track suit. Also she and Unique have a discussion in her office. It looks like she’s still McKinley High principal.
