Spring break is over! Hot on the heels of its fourth-season renewal news, “Glee” returns tonight with its spring premiere, kicking off a streak of new episodes.

But fans are already looking forward to the Whitney Houston tribute, when the show honors the late singer with an episode dedicated to her music, featuring eight of Whitney’s biggest hits.

The Whitney-centric hour will air Tuesday, April 24, at 8/7c, and Fox has just released the first images from the episode called “Dance with Somebody.” Specific tunes have not been released but by the picture of Santana and Britney above, and of course, the episode title, obviously they are covering “I Wanna Dance with Somebody.” In an ironic coincidence, “Glee” already covered Whitney’s trademark love song “I Will Always Love You” in the episode that aired right after her tragic death in February.

The week before the Houston episode airs “Glee” turns William McKinley High into a disco inferno when they feature the music of the Bee Gees in “Saturday Night Glee-ver” on April 17.

In tonight’s premiere, Matt Bomer (“White Collar”) guest stars as Blaine’s (Darren Criss) “Big Brother” and the two duet on Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know.” See It Now:
