Britney Spears Will Appear In Glee 'As Part Of A Dream'
Gleek Heather Morris reveals more about Spears' episode here...
Morris, who plays cheerleader Brittany in the musical TV series let slip that her character will interact with Britney in a dream after teacher Will Schuester bans the New Directions from performing her hits.
The actress explained to TV Week: "Through a special substance, I go under and have a couple of dream sequences - not only myself, but with Santana (Naya Rivera),"
"A lot of it has to do with Will (Matthew Morrison) not allowing us to perform Britney Spears songs, because he doesn't agree with what kind of entertainer she is, so it's our fight to do Britney."
She added: "But it's not just us doing Britney in show choir; there are other sequences - it's our homage to her."
Heather also confessed that working with the Womanizer singer was 'overwhelming' after idolising her from an early age.
Morris continued: "She was my idol from, like, age 12 to 16. I sang to her (songs) in my living room and danced to her. I learned all her moves. And I had my talent shows and I lip-synched to her."
"I just kept flashing back to growing up and being obsessed with her. It wasn't really nerve-racking, because I've met her before and I wasn't really overwhelmed by who she is,"
The Gleek added: "But the idea of what she has given us for the show and, for me, getting to dance with her and play with her on set, I was just staring at her at one point and thinking, 'This is just so frickin' awesome'."
A preview of the episode, which will air as part of the third season of Glee also hit the web this week, showing Rachel Berry, played by Lea Michele portraying Britney in her Baby One More Time video.
