Darren Criss will be missing for two episodes after “Glee’s” big Michael Jackson tribute episode on Tuesday, Jan. 31, so it’s a good thing he’s going out in a big way.
“Glee” released the full video of Criss’ performance of “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin'” from the episode, and it is just as epic as you’d expect, as Blaine crotch-grabs and “hee-hee”s his way through the halls of McKinley to another impossibly amazing stage setup in the auditorium.
Criss recently said of the MJ episode, “I shot all my stuff in four days. It was quick! It was a shotgun of crazy, exhausting stuff and it was both a thrill–because you really wanna do justice to these awesome songs–but frustrating, because I wanted it to be perfect and amazing.”
Check out the full performance below. We especially love that the entire New Directions club has different versions of Jackson’s iconic costumes.
