This cover of the King of Pop's hit single
was performed on the Michael Jackson-themed episode of Glee
, which was broadcast on January 31, 2012. It was sung as a duet between New Directions' glee club member Santana (Naya Rivera) and the Warblers' captain Sebastian (Grant Gustin) after he challenged her to a duel. "It is an unbelievable honor to even get to be a part of such a legendary song by the one and only Michael Jackson on one of America's favorite TV shows," Gustin told Billboard
magazine. "I had a blast doing this song with Naya Rivera and the positive response from the fans is an unexpected bonus to an already surreal opportunity."
