Following the occasional rumor of the past few months, it looks like Glee producers have finally come down with a case of Bieber Fever.
Michael Ausiello, one of the most reliable sources in TV journalism, reports that the Fox smash will dedicate a full episode to Justin Bieber this February.
Despite his recent claim to be open to an appearance on the series, sources say Bieber is not currently scheduled to make a cameo.
Instead, as it has done for artists such as Britney Spears and Madonna, Glee will simply cover a number of Justin's singles on the upcoming episode. Insiders do say, however, that "Bieber himself will figure into the plot" in some fashion.
Commence hyperventilating, Beliebers, in 3... 2... 1...
UPDATE: Glee creator Ryan Murphy has released a statement that reads: "Glee is NOT doing a Justin Bieber tribute episode. We are not doing any more of those this season. Those are reserved for artists with a big catalogue, ala Madonna and Britney, etc."
However, Murphy says episode 13 will feature a Bieber single, sung by Sam to impress Quinn.
