Now, we know there’s a big Michael Jackson Tribute episode coming in the new year, and with the cast taking on a reported 12 songs , we’re searching for any and every clue to narrow down the set list. (We’ve already spoiled you with a few.)

So when Chord Overstreet (Sam) tweeted this pic of his fellow Glee bros lookin’ all tough for the camera, one question came to mind...

“Who’s bad?” That’s right: The leather. The intense stares. The parking garage setting. It is all too reminiscent of the 1987 music video for MJ’s #1 hit, “Bad.”

And we thought the “Smooth Criminal” face off was going to have us lying awake in anticipation on the night of January 16.  

What do you think, Gleeks? Are we on the right track? And what MJ song would YOU like to see Glee cover?
