Guess when you nab 19 Emmy nominations after only one season on air, you can pretty do whatever you want! And that’s exactly what Glee creator Ryan Murphy is doing! He just confirmed the news we’ve all been anxiously anticipating—a Britney Spears tribute episode!
Murphy finally confirmed the rumor that has been up in the air since April that the show is creating an entire show around Ms. Spears. He says he and the staff are currently writing the episode which will air next season.
Oh the possibilities! “Hit Me Baby One More Time,” “Slave 4 U,” I’m Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman??” Love her or not, Brit’s banged out some major hits in her day! No word on whether Britney herself will actually be in the episode, but if she was willing to do How I Met Your Mother, we're sure she's at least open to the possibility.
And that’s not all! We also hear Glee will air a big tribute episode after next year's Super Bowl, but Murphy didn't reveal which star it will be based on, only hinting that we were "close" by guessing Michael Jackson.
This gets us Gleeks pretty psyched on next season!
