Did Glee Out-Britney Britney?

What shot Glee's ratings to its highest peak yet? It's Britney, bitch. With 13.3 million gleeks tuning in for last night's episode, Glee proved that Brit still has top pop power -- more than even Madonna or Lady Gaga. Perhaps Ms. Spears' TV allure had something to do with her (tragically brief) cameos throughout the episode, appearing in the "Me Against The Music" cover and as a big-blonde-haired cheerleader.
One Out staffer suggested Britney's guest appearance was so short because, "they probably had to prop her up the whole time." All we know is the real Brit at the center of the episode was Brittany S. Pierce, the deliciously dim-witted blonde played by Heather Morris. The video re-interpretations of Britney classics featured Morris' vocals and dance moves. And, hello, girl can move. We still can't decide which was better, Brittany in the nude diamond-embellished unitard (writhing around John Stamos no less) or Brittany in the red pleather "Oops!" catsuit with bumpit-worthy hair. Or maybe, just maybe, we like Brittany as Brittany, for saying things like, "Did you know dolphins are just gay sharks?"
