“It’s a Britney Spears sex riot!” That was just one of the brilliant one liners uttered by Emmy winner Jane Lynch as Sue Sylvester on a night where Glee let the zingers fly fast and furious (especially from Heather Morris’s Brittany) as the show celebrated pop phenom Britney Spears. It was a hilarious and entertaining hour that saw the glee clubbers have hallucinations while under dental anesthesia (administered by new guest star John Stamos lookin’ sexy as ever) where they sang Britney songs. While the storytelling was a bit scatter-shot and convoluted, the show was still incredibly fun and the musical numbers were great. We got the solo singing debut of Morris’s Brittany on “I’m a Slave 4 U”, plus Artie (Kevin McHale) doing “Stronger”, Rachel (Lea Michelle) offering up “Baby One More Time” and a duet from Santana (Naya Rivera) and Brittany on “Me Against the Music”. However, my favorite number was the entire Glee club’s rendition of “Toxic” that also featured Mr. Schuester (Matthew Morrison). It was a fantastic reworking of Spears’ Grammy winning hit. The star of the hour was clearly Morris whose amazing dancing skills were on display (can you believe she just missed making the top 20 on So You Think You Can Dance two season ago?) along with her vocals and laugh out line readings. Some of her best quotes from the night: “It looks like a big Jewish cloud…”, “wait, Finn can fly?”, “I’m more talented than all of you. I see that clearly now. It’s Brittany… bitch”. and on and on. We also learned her character has lived under Britney Spears shadow all her life because her real name is Brittany S. Pierce. BRILLIANT! … Ok, enough of me babbling. It’s time for you to enjoy some Brittany from last night’s Glee. Check out the full episode below, plus a few performance clips and Heather Morris performing with Beyonce (she was on tour with her prior to joining Glee).
