On September 28 2010, "Britney/Brittany", the second episode of Glee's Season 2, premiered on Fox. It paid tribute to Britney Spears and Britney herself made several cameo appearances throughout the whole episode.

The storyline focuses on the character Brittany and her classmates having anesthesia-induced hallucinations while visiting the dentist, and in them they recreate Britney's most iconic moments of her career.




A total of five Britney Spears songs were performed on the episode. All of them were released as singles and they all managed to appear on the Billboard Hot 100:

  • ...Baby One More Time (#54)
  • Stronger (#53)
  • I'm a Slave 4 U (#52)
  • Me Against the Music (#56)
  • Toxic (#16)

With these songs, plus a cover of Paramore's The Only Exception, the Glee cast surpassed The Beatles as the non-solo act with the most appearances in the chart's history, and became the third one overall at the time, only behind Elvis Presley's 108 appearances and James Brown's 91 (Nowadays, The Glee cast are the second act with the most entries, behind Drake).

The Britney performances were cute in Brittany/Britney and Brit's appearances were cute. But that show was TERRIBLE. It wasn't funny, the kids couldn't act, the storylines and writing were awful, Lea Michelle was/is problematic, other actors had their intense scandals (like child ****). It was basically Kids Bop for adults.

I was peeved that they did the second "tribute" to Britney and then essentially just made fun of her breakdown the entire time, 5 years later. It was in very poor taste. Ryan Murphy is so shady.

I never liked this show, one of the worst teen dramedy of all time in my opinion.

I feel like Ryan Murphy was forced to do the tributes due the success of Madonna's, season 1. The first one wasn't that bad because Britney herself was there, but the plot was lazy and focused way too much on Britney being a guilty pleasure.

The second one looked even more forced because Brit was on X Factor during that time, both Fox shows. Ryan did a disgusting thing on the second tribute, very tasteless and I don't think he would do It with Gaga, Madonna, MJ or Beyonce.

Omg this episode introduced me to I'm a Slave 4 U

It sounded like a bop so I searched the original version and fell in love with it along with the choreography :makeitrain_britney_blush_headphones_omg_wow_happy:

That's why I don't think It was completely useless, at least a new generation had contact with Britney music.
