We're getting a new glimpse at Glee Season 5, Episode 8: "Previously Unaired Christmas," and the episode looks to be spectacular. Translation: Get ready to see someone wearing a manger around their face. 


Glee's Christmas episodes tend to be among our favorite episodes of the year, and this new one will be no exception, judging by this behind-the-scenes preview video. Plus, the cast gives us the inside scoop as New Directions members dress up for a Nativity scene.

"This is our Christmas episode, and we're all being merry around the Virgin Mary," Blake Jenner (Ryder) says. "And we're all singing, and we're all having a great time." 

"This scene that we are doing right now is a living nativity," Alex Newell (Unique) reveals. "I am the angel Gabriel. I should have been the Virgin Mary, but that's fine." Don't worry, Alex — we're sure you make an excellent Gabriel.

The character who is playing the Virgin Mary is Kitty (Becca Tobin). "The number we're doing now is 'Away in a Manger,' and Kitty  or sorry, Virgin Mary  gets a little breakout, and she kills it," Becca jokes.

This video is definitely a must-see, not only for the look at the episode but also because of the amazing "Jingle Bells" rap that Blake does. Trust us, you just need to see it. Plus, you'll find out who's wearing the manger.

Do you think this year's Christmas episode will live up to the previous ones?
