Glee's ready to be startin' somethin' on Jan. 31 when McKinley High's New Directions pay tribute to Michael Jackson.

In the episode, which will feature about nine songs from King of Pop's vast musical library, Naya Rivera's Santana dons Jackson's famed fedora, the Warblers and New Directions go head-to-head for "Bad" and Blaine (Darren Criss) gets a slushie in the face from Dalton Academy bad-boy Sebastian (Grant Gustin).

Leather jackets, a "Bad" re-enactment and Criss (hopefully) doing Jackson's famed Moonwalk, the episode will join Britney Spears, Lady Gaga and Madonna as artists who have received the Glee tribute.

Also coming: an April tribute episode to the Bee Gees' Saturday Night Fever soundtrack.
