Get ready for an epic showdown between New Directions and the Warblers during Glee’s January 24 Michael Jackson tribute episode!
One of MJ’s greatest songs (with, ahem, one of his greatest videos — Joe Pesci? Sean Lennon? Amaaaazing!) is getting a Glee spin courtesy of two members of two different glee clubs.
Here’s a hint:

Santana (Naya Rivera) and… Sebastian (Grant Gustin)!! Word ‘round the Tumblr-verse from an insider on set is that “Smooth Criminal” will go down as a battle between the competing glee clubs, with Santana and Sebastian serving as each other’s competition on lead vocals!
While no “official” word exists, both stars were tweeting one another’s praises yesterday after the long work day came to a close.
“Just finished doing an amazing song with the extremely talented@grantgust This kid can dance!!” Naya said.
Grant echoed the sentiment with, “Legitimately my favorite day of filming thus far!! Had the most fun with the amazing @NayaRivera! And thanks for the kind words. :)”
Now isn’t that sweet… and telling!
Wait! There’s more! Lea Michele (Rachel Berry) is busy tweeting up a storm of spoilers for the new year from the set, and one that caught our eye this morning could mean there’ll be more to come from the Warblers come January 24!
“Morning! Rachel’s first visit to Dalton today! So excited to see all the#Warblers and watch them sing and dance!” she chirped.

UPDATE: Naya tweeted the above pic from the Dalton set. Where’sKurt (Chris Colfer), hmm?
Could Sebastian’s involvement in the number make him the “smooth criminal” in question? He is, after all, on a mission to steal Blaine (Darren Criss) from Kurt. Is this a hint of further troubles for Klaine?

DARREN CRISS IS DANIEL RADCLIFFE DOUBLE? we all know criss was in very harry potter musical which is based after harry potter (daniel radcliffe) but now, after radcliffe retires from his broadway show criss is cast as the new leading man! i want to say congrats and both of them are amazing actors!(: good luck to him
In a lengthy new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Grant Gustin – the actor who will have a major role on next week’s new episode of Glee (3×05 The First Time) – discusses his character Sebastian and how co-star Darren Criss helped him through the filming process.
Gustin spoke at length about getting the part and how it has all been very new for him:
What was it like coming to set for the first time?
Gustin: It was crazy, I’d never been on a TV or film set before, ever. It was my first camera experience. I didn’t know what to expect, but it was so much fun. I feel so lucky to part of such a wonderful, relevant project when it’s at its peak. Darren was actually very cool, he would walk me through things as they were happening, helping me figure out what everyone’s job was and the lingo of a set, what type of shot was happening. I had no idea how wide a shot was or how tight a shot was, what the guy next to me was doing touching my costume between takes. Darren was really cool helping me figure out the ropes, and he wanted to be really clear he wasn’t demeaning me and I as like “no, bro, I need it!” Everyone was really cool and nice to me, and they didn’t need to do that! They’re TV stars and I’m nobody!
Darren had the same experience last year as coming into the Glee family did he give you any words of wisdom?
Gustin: Kind of, he told me nothing is going to prepare me for what’s going to happen. He said, “I wish he could give you advice, but your life is going to drastically change.” That’s the part I haven’t really wrapped my mind around yet I guess. My episode hasn’t aired, no one knows who I am, no one recognizes me, I’m just me. I don’t know what to expect yet I guess. Darren’s great, from what I’ve heard from people who’ve known him before this all happened, that he’s remained the same, and very cool. I can only hope the same for myself if I’m so lucky to blow up the way that he has.
just want a chance to see them in real person for once *deep sigh* we usually only see drawings!
