"Dolphins are just gay sharks."

Brittany: I don’t wanna do Britney.
Kurt: Why no Britney, Brittany?
Brittany: 'Cause my name is also Britney Spears. My Middle name is Susan, my Last Name is Pearce… That makes me Brittany S. Pearce. Brittany Spearce.

Not only am I *huge* un-closeted Britney Spears fan (duh), but Brittany is probably my favorite character on Glee. So the Britney/Brittany episode last night was over the top for me! So glad that Brittany (Heather Morris) got a whole episode to truly shine! And damn, can that girl dance. I'm so glad she finally got to show off her moves. Here's a few fun facts about the talented Glee actress you may not have known...

  • Heather auditioned for So You Think You Can Dance (season 2) but missed the top 20 by one vote.

  • She toured with Beyonce as a dancer and danced with her in several music videos, including "Single Ladies"

  • She was originally hired on Glee as a dancer (and of course was key in teaching the "Single Ladies" routine to the football team)

  • Brittany's character was not originally supposed to be so air-headed, but apparently she gave a particularly dim-witted look one day at shooting and from that point on, Brittany was declared dumb.

  • A lot of the one-liner's are Heather's own ad-libbing.

Brittany: I’m more talented than all of you. I see that clearly now. It’s Brittany… Bitch.

Glee was awesome last night. I find that when the show is over, I am saying out loud, "Wait, that's all until next week????"

Ah, thanks so much for this post. I didn't know that about Heather. In fact, I never really liked her until this episode, but now I LOVE her and can't wait to watch her dance on future episodes. As much as I love my Brit Brit, I have to say that Heather might give her a run for her money. Slave 4 U was off the chain! :)

Glee plus Britney and Brittany equals perfection!

I loved this week's episode but I have to say that she is my least favorite character. She has some fun one-liners though.
