Photo Courtesy - 20th Century FoxThe news that Glee plans to do a special post-Super Bowl tribute episode has had people guessing which artist's music is going to get the nod.  The rumors have mostly focused on either Michael Jackson or, most recently, Bruce Springsteen, but Glee creator Ryan Murphy says neither of those names are accurate.

He tells E! Online, "I still haven't figured out who I want to do. I feel like everyone's already talking about Michael Jackson or Springsteen or Prince, but I want to do something that no one would suspect.  Just some random person, I don't know."

Murphy added that he has "a couple feelers" out to a few artists, and they've all said yes, leaving him in a quandary.  He says, "Now I have to choose, and I don't know who I want."
