‘Glee’ News: Britney Spears Gets Second Tribute Episode, Kate Hudson Role Revealed

The “Glee” news just keeps on coming this week! Following the announcement that Sarah Jessica Parker and Kate Hudson will guest star in season four, Chris Colfer slipped on “Live! With Kelly” and said that Kate, whose part was being kept under wraps, is playing a mentor role of sorts to Rachel Berry (Lea Michele). And you can bet Kate will be singing and dancing with the best of them! But that’s not the only exciting news: Entertainment Weekly is reporting that a tribute episode for pop queen Britney Spears is also in the works!

The episode will be the second of “Glee”’s fourth season and will feature eight of Britney’s songs. But unlike “Glee’s” “Britney/Brittany,” this tribute will not center around Brittany S. Pearce (Heather Morris) and Britney is not scheduled to appear (although EW says the show’s producers are trying to work out a deal!).

It might be just that much easier considering Britney will join Demi Lovato as the newest “X Factor” judge, which along with “Glee” will move to Thursday nights in the fall. It also probably helps that the first episode honoring Brit set record ratings, drawing 13.3 million viewers. With numbers like that, we’ll stay optimistic about the pop sensation making another appearance.
