Early last month we learned that Glee is planning a tribute episode to the memory of the late Whitney Houston and today we get our first look at the first released photos from the ep. As you may recall, Glee inadvertently paid tribute to Whitney very shortly after her death by featuring a stunning performance of her song I Will Always Love You. But this upcoming tribute episode will be devoted to her music by design. Check out the photos below from the forthcoming episode of Glee titled Dance With Somebody.
Glee is going tribute-crazy this April, with New Directions paying homage to two major influences on pop culture: Saturday Night Fever and late musical icon Whitney Houston … “Dance With Somebody” (set to air April 24) will use Houston’s heartfelt tunes to help the graduating seniors cope with their impending goodbyes.
I have to say, Glee does a lot of things very right. Using the music of Whitney Houston to say goodbye to the graduating seniors on the show is just … brilliant. The show does a very good job of using songs to tell their stories. The usage isn’t always pitch perfect but far and away, they get it right more than they get it wrong. I am really looking forward to this episode. I Wanna Dance with Somebody is not only one of my favorite Whitney Houston songs but it is one of my fave pop songs of all time — period. I hope we get to see preview video from this ep soon, I’m really anxious to watch Glee pay tribute to Whitney Houston and her music.
