If there are two things that will make any pop culture junkie, such as myself, happy, they are Glee and Britney Spears. Combine them together and you get an amazing hour of television, with many more hours of music to follow.
Another episode in the bag and it did not disappoint. I have to admit, I was a bit bummed to see one of my favorite Britney songs, Stronger, sung by someone other than Rachel, but I'll let it slide. I was so happy to see Terri back, albeit briefly, stirring up trouble, and the addition of John Stamos, better known as Uncle Jesse, as Will's new nemesis. And, even though I love Rachel Berry/Lea Michele, it's always fun to see other characters getting the spotlight. Who knew Brittany had such chops? Although, I suppose Britney Spears songs aren't the hardest in the world, but I wouldn't be able to rock them the way she did.
How PERFECT was Rachel's rendition of Baby One More Time? It matched the original video to a T! Not to mention Brittany's Slave and Brittany and Santana's Me Against The Music. I kept thinking I was watching the actual videos, not the Gleeks performing them. Check them all out HERE. I knew Heather Morris (Brittany) could dance, considering she used to tour with Beyonce and was hired for the show originally to choreograph the Single Ladies number, but she was BANANAS in each of her Britney fantasies. If I start dancing, will I get abs like hers?
Now for my favorite songs:
Rachel's spot on Baby One More Time.
New Direction's Fosse-esque Toxic.
Rachel's (I realize this wasn't Britney) breathtaking The Only Exception.
Next week should be interesting...religion and a possible death. Looks like Ryan Murphy has no problem with the "hard" stuff. Maybe Brittany will have the opportunity to have her Ke$ha moment too.
Until next time... xo
