“Glee” To Have Second Britney Spears Tribute Episode and Who Is Kurt’s Mom?

Hot off the news that Britney Spears has joined “The X Factor,” Entertainment Weekly has learned there will be another tribute episode to the singer on “Glee” next season!

“Glee” will follow “The X Factor” on Thursday nights when it returns this Fall and this announcement is great for cross promotion. The episode is set for the fall and will be the second episode of the fourth season. It will feature eight of Britney’s songs but won’t focus on the character of Brittany (Heather Morris) as the first tribute did.

It was recently announced that Kate Hudson and Sarah Jessica Parker would be recurring next season and thanks to Chris Colfer, we know who SJP will play – his mom! Chris let the news slip today on Live! With Kelly and EW has learned that Kate Hudson will be playing a similar mentor-type role to Rachel Berry (Lea Michele). Hudson’s role will have her singing but will also be very dance-heavy.

So what do you think of this “Glee” season 4 scoop?
