I've had a lot of success as sub so far this tier, since it has monster single target potential - and, especially if you're getting purified early in this fight, you should be able to tunnel on the boss while the non-purified dps cleave adds. I recommend glyph of redirect for quick stuns on demand for big adds + prey on the weak talented. AoC is a big help here too, just for more frequent CoS and FW uptime.
Here are some sample logs (though take them with a grain of salt, since I wasn't logging):

10H this week:
combat is best on norushen
DPS on norushen depends too much on when you get to go down to get cleansed. Ofc, combat will have a little bit of fun cleaving adds, but that DPS is wasted on the Almag itself. I would say the best spec for Norushen for a rogue, if you get to go down 1st or second wave, would be sub hands down and then just go HAM on the boss.
I find it funny how you are all like "lol blade flurry" when you see top combat parse somewhere. Heard that there is lot of cleaving in Norushen top parses, did someone here even check that out?
Wonder why ppl still jumping on this subtlety hype train when they can play retardedly OP and not even rng combat w/o 2004 mechanics.
And I'm guessing your basis for that last part is that sub does more single target dps which is very, very questionable. Sub will also be hurt more by you having to block the little adds when they are in front of the boss, though you could just ignore that mechanic and hope others in your raid cover for it.
It actually is wasted as long as u have at least one not purified DPS in raid.
So its either rogue doing 111% + 26% (numbers pulled out of shadowcrafts ass) his DPS to boss and poor 75 corruption guy does 50% or rogue 125 and the other one 100...

You guys seem to be fretting over something so miniscule. Play the spec that you are comfortable with. The high end parses have gear that the "average" raider won't see until much later on. If you have the gear to be getting those insane parses you also know when to play which spec and whether your raid needs you to play another spec.

And to note, Garrosh is somewhat of an anomaly to begin with, lending itself to all three specs in different ways.
If they want you on adds no matter what when they come out, go Combat, sit on the boss and just use BF to cleave, it's very efficient.
Mut is not bad at all either with it's execute phase, but again go with what you prefer to play or what your gear supports the best if you don't mind what spec you are!
As others have said, any spec is going to work and it will mostly be up to your raid setup. That being said, if adds are already going down fast enough you might as well go Sub and sit on the boss with superior single target. If you need to swap to adds, then probably Combat.
