Despite reports claiming that Glee producers had planned to dedicate an episode of the hit US TV show to the Baby hitmaker, Murphy explained that instead, a Bieber song will be used as a "small part" in one instalment of the programme.
Speaking to American celebrity blogger, Perez Hilton, Murphy revealed: "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 Spears, etc."
He added: "We are doing an episode where Sam (Chord Overstreet) sings a Bieber song to win Quinn (Dianna Agron) back ... and copies his hairstyle, etc.,"
"But it's a small part of a big episode that has a LOT of other things going on."
Murphy also admitted that a new episode of Glee is set to feature Lady GaGa's new single, Born This Way, ahead of her eagerly awaited LP's release date in May.
