"This is just so frickin' awesome" ~ Heather Morris, Brittany, of Glee
Tuesday night at 8:00pm is going to be gleek heaven. Glee pays tribute to pop-goddess Britney Spears. Me Against The Music, Toxic, Slave For You,
Glee's cheerio Brittany [Heather Morris] and her partner in crime Santana [Naya Rivera] are tearing it up, the likes of which Glee has not seen before. If this episode was performed before a live audience people would be throwing tons of shoes on the stage. For those not familiar with the custom, its a ritual done to show appreciation to dancers for their performance rather than just applauding.
Pretty tall order to do Britney Spears covers. You'd better bring it, 'cuz if you don't it won't be pretty. The Glee cast & choreographers bring it. While it is true that even the most devoted of admirers cannot duplicate Ms Spears star-power---you'd need a nuclear plant to generate that much heat---the Glee cast come pretty darn close.
And speaking of heat---John Stamos' character Carl is introduced in the Britney/Brittany ep. Carl's a dentist, and McKinley High School guidance counselor Emma's new beau. Talk about opposites attracting. Carl is spontaneous and gregarious, and exactly what Emma needs to loosen up. And he brings out a bit of the 'green-eyed monster' in Will.
For all you gleeks on twitter, Ms Spears has a verified account and will be tweeting during the Britney/Brittany ep.
Glee, now in it's second season, airs Tuesdays on FOX at 8:00pm
