Yes, "Glee' has been planning a Billy Joel tribute for months, but suddenly it's here — as in "tonight" here.... 

Joel spoke to Jay Bobbin — for a story posted on Zap2it Thursday morning — saying this: 

"Honestly, I've never seen the show. I'm one of those guys who watches the History Channel, and I watch news and I watch documentaries... but I'm very happy that my material is being done by people of that age group, and that I guess it has meaning for them.

"I'm always surprised when I look out at the audience [at concerts] and I see a lot of younger people, like they've discovered this stuff on their own. I doubt that a lot of younger kids listen to classic-rock radio. They have their own music now, and in light of that, I guess my stuff hasn't aged so badly that nobody wants to hear it anymore."

And, the promo:
