TV Line and Deadline.com had previously claimed that the show’s producers were planning an episode that would feature the cast performing a number of the teen pop sensation’s hits. In an interview with PerezHilton.com, Murphy shot down the news reports.
“Glee is NOT doing a Justin Bieber tribute episode,” he said. “We are not doing any more of those this season. Those are reserved for artists with a big catalogue, ala Madonna and Britney, etc.”
Murphy added that the show does, however, have plans to include Bieber in an upcoming episode, albeit on a smaller scale.
“We are doing an episode where Sam (Chord Overstreet) sings a Bieber song to win Quinn (Dianna Agron) back … and copies his hairstyle, etc.,” he revealed. “But it’s a small part of a big episode that has a LOT of other things going on.”
Glee returns with its highly anticipated Super Bowl episode Feb. 6.
