According to E! Online, Glee is currently shooting a tribute episode to Whitney Houston that will include 8 songs from her catalog.
A reliable show source told E the show “will not be a typical tribute..” and that, “unlike the show’s Madonna and Michael Jackson episodes, the Whitney tribute is more of a “character piece” that focuses on Glee‘s graduating seniors having a real hard time letting go.”
Today, Lea Michele tweeted: “Starting a new episode today. A very special tribute to one of the worlds most amazing singers. Very excited about this one.”
Can I say UGH? Double UGGHH?? Triple UGGGHHH??? Last summer, when Creator Ryan Murphy was talking up the season, he promised there would only be ONE Season 3 tribute episode. But now there will be at least THREE.
There was the Michael Jackson episode a few weeks ago. Production just wrapped on Episode 16, a Saturday Night Fever tribute, and it looks like the very next episode will be this Whitney thing. It’s only been a couple of weeks since she passed–did the producers just throw this show together?
I know the ratings are down, but this is getting a little desperate. Whatever, Ryan.
