Yesterday, Fox announced that pop superstar Britney Spears would be joining their reality competition The X-Factor as a judge and that Glee would follow X-Factor‘s results show on Thursdays. Now comes even more exciting Britney/Glee news: EW has exclusively learned that Glee is planning a second Britney Spears tribute for the fall! Set to be the second episode of the series’ fourth season, this hour homage to Brit Brit will feature eight of her songs but won’t focus on the character of Brittany (Heather Morris) as the first tribute did (Spears is not scheduled to appear in the episode as of now but producers are hoping to work out a deal). The reason for the Spears hour is because the network is so excited about the pairing of a Spears/X-Factor with Glee on Thursday nights. It also certainly doesn’t hurt that the original Britney tribute, which aired early in the second season, is still one of Glee’s highest-rated episode to date.
