Britney Spears Glee Episode: Confirmed!

by at .

That would-be Britney Spears-themed episode of Glee the singer's manager Tweeted about in a shameless attempt to cash in on the Fox series' buzz?

It's totally on!

We're as surprised as anyone, but the show's creator Ryan Murphy has confirmed to Entertainment Tonight that he’s writing an episode dedicated to her.

More than 13.5 million people tuned in to a Madonna-inspired episode last April. Can a Britney-themed episode come close to that total? Probably.

Will it be any good? That's another story.

GIMME MORE GLEE! Britney Spears' music is coming to the second season of the hit show. Hopefully the Glee cast all goes to Starbucks in honor of the pop princess.

Not everyone on the show, which was nominated for 19 Emmys, will be thrilled. Last May, Matthew Morrison, who plays Will Schuester, actually scoffed at the idea:

"I hope our show doesn't go along that route," he said.

We sort of hoped they wouldn't, too, but perhaps we'll be pleasantly surprised. It just doesn't seem like she has the kind of catalog or musical style to fit the show.

Lady Gaga and Madonna have more vocal talent. Breathy moans, suggestive lyrics and auto-tuning might sell records, but how will they translate on the program?

What Britney song would make the best Glee cover?
