If you love Glee and you love Britney Spears, you might have enjoyed the Fox series' tribute to the pop superstar last night. But you also might not have, since there was basically no plot, no attempt at storytelling and generally no point.

While the Britney covers were cool to a point, was this even TV? Or more of a mash-up of music videos, Spears imitations and the occasional, funny one-liner?

Brittany as Britney

Heather Morris (Brittany) as Britney on Glee.

There wasn't even original Glee music, the hallmark of the show, which fans know connects the material to the characters in a very personal way. Not Tuesday.

The numbers were chosen basically because there was a Facebook campaign for a Britney episode and the star's manager lobbied for it. Not exactly organic.

Don't get us wrong, there were plenty of good lines and some of the covers were actually pretty good. But you can't abandon all storytelling like this as a stunt.

Even its previous tribute episodes, in which the show paid homage to Madonna and Lady Gaga, helped advance the plot and actually felt like Glee. It's doable.

But is Glee saving its most hair-raising guest-starring role for later this season? Lea Michele sure hopes so.

Speaking to E! News at PETA's 30th anniversary gala this weekend, the actress was asked about Justin Bieber appearing on the Fox show and said:

The Biebs on the Stage

Might Glee viewers come down with a case of Bieber Fever?

"I don't know about Justin Bieber coming on the show, but he would be awesome."

Look for Matthew Morrison's Will Schuester to fall ill and take an absence, giving Paltrow's character a chance to come in and actually lead the singing group for a bit.

While the role may seem random, closer inspection proves that it's anything but:

Not everything is gleeful between a pair of Glee co-stars.

Earlier this year, rumors circulated that Mark Salling (Puck) and Naya Rivera (Santana) were an item, although a friend of the former says the two "weren't officially together" at any point. Salling must have agreed, as he wasn't shy about dating numerous females over the summer.

But Rivera reportedly had a different impression of their relationship. Sources tell Us Weekly the actress “went crazy when she read about other girls. When Naya found out, she and some pals trashed his Lexus."

Damn. Someone has been listening to Carrie Underwood's "Before He Cheats," huh?

Fortunately, according to the latest Glee spoilers, Puck and Santana won't be hooking up on season two of the Fox hit.

It returns with new episodes on September 21.

** UPDATE: In response to this story, Salling has Tweeted: "Btw I don't even drive a Lexus... Silly rumors, we're the best of friends!"

After weeks of rumors over whether or not the incomparable Britney Spears would actually appear personally on the Glee episode in her honor this fall, the pop icon confirmed it this week via a Twitter pic of herself and her assistant on the set.

Now, two additional Britney Spears pictures have emerged featuring the singer and a cast member of the Fox series! Check them out below - Britney's posing here with Heather Morris, who plays Brittany, fittingly, and creator Ryan Murphy:

Britney Spears will appear on the September 28 episode of Glee.

Along with the photo, in which she reenacts her famous pose with Madonna, the pop icon wrote: "All my GLEEKERS in the crowd, Grab a partner take it down."

Britney has called the experience a ton of fun and we can't wait to see the tribute to her music. We've already seen Lea Michele in "Baby One More Time" garb.

We think we speak for millions when we say her Glee appearance and the second season premiere of the show - September 21 - can't arrive quickly enough!
