Fox really digs Britney Spears. Pop’s femme fatale was officially confirmed as a judge for the upcoming second season of The X Factor when she stood along side Simon Cowell, L.A. Reid and fellow newbie Demi Lovato at the network’s upfront presentation in New York yesterday. And now word has come that she’ll be honored with yet another Glee tribute episode. Making life easier for all Britney fans, Glee will move from Tuesday nights to Thursdays next season (when the Brit-Brit episode will air), and will follow The X Factor‘s results show time slot each week.
Entertainment Weekly reports that eight of Spears’ songs will appear in the second episode of Season 4 when Glee returns in the fall. And while the “I Wanna Go” minx is currently not attached to appear in the episode this time around (as she did two years ago) Glee execs are “hoping to work out a deal.”
Spears’ first Glee tribute episode, “Britney/Brittany”, aired in September 2010, and the cast covered five jams from the singer’s catalog of hits in it: “Stronger”, “…Baby One More Time”, “Toxic”, “I’m a Slave 4 U”, and “Me Against the Music”.
