This Tuesday's all-new episode of Glee is going to be a good one, guys -- they're doing a Whitney Houston tribute episode! That means a full 42 minutes' worth of the New Directions kids singing Whitney classics, including this absolutely stunning acapella rendition of "How Will I Know." Watch the sneak peek clip below!
Did that not give you major chills?! Already this episode is leaps and bounds better than last week's disco fiasco. And it's so nice to hear a rare acapella song on Glee. Sure, it's over-produced and auto-tuned, but what song on Glee isn't? It's still beautiful and heartfelt and such a fitting tribute to Whitney Houston.
It's also nice to see that, rather than doing a big number with the entire glee club, the show chose to feature only the singers whose voices are right for this type of harmonizing -- Rachel, Mercedes, Santana, and Kurt. Of course, there will surely be big group numbers in the episode as well, but this is a good sign that they're going to spend more time focusing on doing Whitney -- and her music -- justice rather than trying to get Finn to dance well.
There will also probably be some memorializing/eulogizing of Whitney during the episode as well -- in this clip we see the four of them building a short of shrine to her in a locker. Maybe they'll have another scene like the post-high-school-dreams scene where they all go around the circle and share what Whitney's music means to them?
Besides "How Will I Know,' which Whitney Houston songs do you think Glee will tackle in Tuesday's episode?
