Listen close, Glee fans—the next song you hear Lea Michele belt may be one of Britney’s. Entertainment Tonight reports the Emmy Award-nominated FOX series is currently in the process of penning an all Britney Spears episode to air sometime during the upcoming season. Creator/writer Ryan Murphy had no comment about whether the pop star and actress (remember Crossroads?) would make an appearance on the show herself.
With Madonna and Lady Gaga already checked off the list of pop queens revamped and re-harmonized for the series, it was only a matter of time before Glee set its sights on the catalogue of Brit-Brit, which includes mega-hits like “Oops I Did it Again,” “Stronger,” “Slave 4 U,” “Toxic” and “Piece of Me.”
If Spears doesn’t do it for you, Glee’s got more up its sleeve—Murphy also told ET the show’s planning a major tribute episode set to air after the Super Bowl in 2011, thought he wouldn’t confirm which star the tribute will honor. (When asked if it was Michael Jackson, Murphy said ET was “close.”)
Glee’s on a roll regardless of whose songbook they tap next. The show earned 19 Emmy Award nominations on July 8.
