It looks like the cast of Glee had the same idea we had this week — spotlight [lastfm]Billy Joel[/lastfm]! Tonight’s episode will give a nod to legendary singer/songwriter with a cover of his 1977 hit “Only the Good Die Young.”
The episode, “Grilled Cheesus,” follows Finn’s spiritual journey after he finds an image of Jesus in his grilled cheese sandwich. Meanwhile, Kurt is helped through a personal struggle.
In addition to covering the Billy Joel classic, the cast will also offer up renditions of other religious-themed hits like R.E.M.’s “Losing My Religion,” and Joan Osbourne’s “One of Us,” among others.
In August, we found out that Billy Joel gave Glee producers the ‘ok’ to use more of his music catalog for a possible upcoming tribute episode. While the ‘piano man’ has thus far turned down offers to make a cameo appearance on Glee, we look forward to seeing the cast tackle more of his classic songs.
You can visit E! Online for a sneak peek at tonight’s Billy Joel cover, and be sure to tune into FOX tonight at 7c for the new episode of Glee.
