Last Friday we learned the AMAZING news that Glee has decided to do an all Britney Spears musical episode when the show returns in the Fall with its second season. After the huge success of the Madonna episode that aired last week, fans began to rally for Glee to devote an entire episode to the fun pop music of Britney Spears. Today we get to hear from Glee creator Ryan Murphy, who spoke to TV Guide magazine, about what he’s got planned for the Britney ep. Read on …
Here’s one Glee fans should have seen coming: That upcoming Britney Spears-themed episode? It will revolve around New Directions’ own Brittany (Heather Morris). Of course! Series creator Ryan Murphy tells TVGuide.com exclusively that McKinley High’s deliciously ditzy Cheerio Brittany will be at the center of Season 2′s tribute to Spears. And it gets better. Brittany will be belting out not one, but two of the pop star’s tunes. “Heather’s actually got a terrific voice,” Murphy says. No word yet on which numbers they’ll be, but just imagine the possibilities: Brittany could sing “Boys” (because she’s hooked up with everyone, even Kurt) or “Toxic” (which could be her ode to Kurt!) Would “Oops!…I Did It Again” be too obvious? Hmm… Morris already seems sold on the idea. “I heard there’s a Britney Spears episode coming up and fingers crossed that I get to sing, because I play Brittany and I’m like, ‘Oh my god, it’s insane,’” Morris told E! Online last month.
Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!! I am SO excited at the prospect of an episode of Glee devoted to Britney Spears, I can barely stand it. AND … AND … AND … get this … Ryan Murphy promises that the Britney ep will be the second episode of Season 2!! Brittany doing Britney … it’s beyond perfect! I am really, really excited. Woot!!!
