Scream! The cast of "Glee" could be planning a Michael or Janet Jackson tribute -- that's if "Glee" star Amber Riley can get her way.

Riley says it would be "prolific" if the Fox TV series performed a tribute to Janet. She also said a tribute to the King of Pop is overdue because "his music is so timeless."

The "Glee" cast will release its sixth CD, "Glee: The Music, Vol. 5," on Tuesday. It will feature covers of Michael's "Thriller" and "P.Y.T.," as well as the original songs "Loser Like Me" and "Get It Right," a first for the Grammy-nominated act.

Adam Anders, the show's executive music producer, is more interested in covering "some ABBA because I'm Swedish."

Anders also said it "would be really cool" to remake the 1983 No. 1 song "Africa" from rock group Toto.
