Oops, Glee did it again. And it pissed Britney Spears off this time.

The Fox musical aired its second tribute episode in honor of the pop icon last Thursday, but sources tell Access Hollywood that Spears felt anything but honored by how she was portrayed.

Her manager spoke to Billy Bush and said the artist’s team was unaware the show would revisit Britney’s troubled times - referencing her infamous buzzcut and atrocious "Gimme More" performance at the 2007 Video Music Awards - and was “livid” over the depiction.

Dianna Agron did not appear on the Glee Season 4 premiere.

And questions are now being raised over how much more we'll see of the actress in the role of Quinn Fabray.

Dianna Agron as Quinn

According to Us Weekly, Agron has worked out an early exit from the musical comedy. She'll only make a couple more appearances before saying goodbye.

"Dianna was unhappy and had been trying to get off the show for a while," claims the Glee insider. "She and producers came to an agreement where they let her go. That's what she wanted."

Based on the character's storyline, Quinn is a freshman at Yale, meaning it would be easy to simply write her out.

However, another series source says this story is "patently false." Where does the truth lie? You may need to tune in to Fox on Thursdays night after The X Factor to find out.

Who knew Kate Hudson has this in her?!?

The actress - who has made a living for years via one cliche-filled romantic comedy after another - comes on board Glee Season 4 as Cassandra July, a dance instructor who gives Lea Michele's Rachel a very hard time and who possesses some serious skills.

Seriously! She moves, she shakes, she sings and she does it all to a mash-up of Lady Gaga's "Americano" and Jennifer Lopez's "Dance Again" in this first look at the September 13 premiere.

Press Play now and marvel at how Hudson makes her way around the studio:

The cast of one of Fox's biggest hits is about to go all Carly Rae Jepsen on us.

On the Glee Season 4 premiere - which will take viewers to New York City and feature Kate Hudson as a strict dance instructor who gives Lea Michele's Rachel Berry a hard time - a series of cast members will be the latest to cover "Call Me Maybe."

Unlike some other videos, of course, there's no lip synching here. Just the vocal stylings of Kevin McHale, Darren Criss and many others. Do they do the track justice? Take a listen and decide for yourself:

We're less than a month away from a brave new Glee.

That's how the first official promo for the return of this Fox hit teases Glee Season 4, as the show will shift to New York City on many episodes, following the exploits there of Lea Michele's Rachel and Chris Colfer's Kurt.

The former will interact often with a strict dance instructor played by Kate Hudson, who - in her first extended television role - won't exactly take it easy on the young Ms. Berry.

Watch her taunt Rachel's background, and watch Sue with her baby and Blaine cover "It's Time" by Imagine Dragons," in the following trailer:

Blake Jenner has earned a role on Glee Season 4.

Following an opening season in which Ryan Murphy actually awarded all three finalists with at least some appearance on his Fox hit, the creator said prior to Season 2 that only the actual winner would appear on Glee in 2012-2013.

The Glee Project Final Three

So, how did Jenner pull it out and earn himself a seven-episode stint?

He took on "I'll Be" by Edwin McCain for his final performance, tossing the microphone in a bit of fun showboating - and also writing a poem! That likely put him over the winning edge in the judges' eyes.

The panelists conferred and while all admired Aylin for her personal story, they gushed over Blake's acting skills and Ali's personality.

In the end, the acting won out. But should have? Did Blake Jenner deserve to win season two The Glee Project?

With Jessica Sanchez already in negotiations to appear on Glee Season 4, sources now say the Fox hit may not be finished with American Idol finalists:

Pia Toscano is rumored to be closing in on a guest-starring gig.

The beautiful and talented singer was given the boot fairly early on in Season 10, in what many consider to be the most shocking elimination in show history. She's done just fine for herself since, however.

Toscano both sang on Dancing with the Stars and dated hot professional Mark Ballas for awhile. She has also signed a record deal.

As for Glee? Pia has no acting experience, but an insider tells E! News she has read for a role and "they absolutely loved her. She's a huge fan of the show."

Whether or not she ends up on television, Toscano has booked a part in Grace Unplugged, an upcoming film about a struggling musician. It starts filming this month in Alabama.

"I'm so excited about my very first acting role in Grace Unplugged," Toscano says. "I'm honored to be a part of this amazing film, and my character is a reflection of me, which makes this special for me."

Glee just got a whole lot hotter.

Following rumors that never panned out last year, Jane Lynch now confirms that Cheryl Cole will appear on Glee Season 4. In what capacity? It's unclear at this time.

But here is what the hilarious woman behind Sue Sylvester had to say on the topic:

Cheryl Cole in London

"There's been talk on set of Cheryl appearing for a year or so, but it's set to happen now. Matthew Morrison has spoken very highly of her and the younger guys on set are keen to have her on, for obvious reasons. Matthew's chatted to her and she seems keen. Cheryl's the perfect Glee fit, she can sing, she can dance and she looks good."

Glee moves to Thursday nights this fall and Cole would be the latest big name to make an appearance on the series if this rumor pans out.

Sarah Jessica Parker and Kate Hudson are already booked for extended runs, while American Idol runner-up Jessica Sanchez is nearing a deal to make her scripted television debut.

Who sings a better ballad, Jessica Sanchez or Lea Michele?

Television viewers may be able to answer this question later this year, as sources confirm that the American Idol runner-up is nearing a deal to guest star on Glee Season 4.

Details are unknown at this time and Sanchez would not appear until around midseason because she could not start shooting until the American Idol Live tour is finished in September.

But TV Line claims Jessica will stop by multiple episodes and either get involved with Michele's Rachel in New York or the core singing group in Ohio. She'd be the latest big name to play a role on Glee, with Kate Hudson and Sarah Jessica Parker already signed on for the new season.

The only question remaining: Does Glenn Beck think Jessica Sanchez will make Glee more horrifying or less horrifying?
