Set your DVRs, Gleeks: The cast of TV’s song-dance comedy Glee will perform a cover of Michael Jackson’s groundbreaking 1982 single “Thriller” as a mashup for their post-Super Bowl episode airing next year, FOX snoops divulged to Entertainment Weekly on Wednesday.

Fitting in with the night’s Super Bowl Sunday theme, the episode will be sports-themed and will focus on McKinley High’s football championship and Sue Sylvester’s cheerleaders. And there’s plenty more soul-snappin’, toe-tappin’ pop covers where that came from. The eagerly-anticipated television event — which is also set to feature covers of songs originally recorded by Lady Antebellum, Katy Perry, and the Black Eyed Peas — will be the most expensive Glee episode produced to date and likely one of the most pricey televsion episodes in recent history.
