Much to Sue Sylvester's horror, Glee is going totally Britney Spears tonight! When Ryan Murphy wrote up the Spears-inspired episode, he was hoping the diva herself would make an appearance -- and she came through. Tonight on Glee, Britney meets Brittany!

"Had so much fun on set today. My new BFF's…" she tweeted in August, linking to a picture of herself with Heather Morris (Brittany).

The ditzy cheerleader will take the lead in the episode, in which she dreams of being the original Brit Brit. She'll go totally Spears to perform both Toxic and I'm a Slave 4 U, and yes, that includes wearing a snake!

Lea Michele will go schoolgirl for a rendition of Brit's Baby One More Time, and we'll also see Glee vamp for Oops I Did It Again, Stronger and Me Against the Music.

Don't let the Britney Spears moments blind you from the episode's other big arrival:

John Stamos enters the fray as Emma's new love interest, Dr. Carl, and the good doctor's attention might just inspire Will to fight for his girl!
