Glee's highly-anticipated Michael Jackson tribute episode finally airs tonight, and cast member Harry Shum Jr. is letting us in on a little secret.

Harry, who plays Mike on the hit FOX show, revealed that Kevin McHale's wheelchair-bound character Artie is going to boogey down tonight in honor of the late King of Pop! 


“You’ll see Kevin dancing,” Harry told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover on Access Hollywood Live today. “Kevin is what is going to blow people away. He’s dancing!”Harry explained that he and Kevin played a big role in how tonight's episode would shape up, along with the help of the producers and writers. “Ryan Murphy was like, ‘Anyone who has any ideas for the Michael episode, come tell us,” Harry explained. "We had like two minutes to put it together and we had this whole PDF file… we made CDs for all the writers.” How cool is that? And although we all know Harry is one of the best dancers on the show, he admits that channeling the moves of Michael was very intimidating! OK!
