Britney Spears has tweeted out her arrival on the Glee set today.

Here's what she revealed about her highly anticipated appearance on Fox's hit musical series, plus everything else you need to know about this very special episode:

In a fit of morning twittering, Britney announced, "About to do my first shot of the day for Glee tweeties! Here we goooo!" She followed up two hours later with a twitpic of her and  assistant Brett Miller on the set along with the messsage, "what's up GLEEKS? Having so much fun on set!! Can't wait for you guys to see the episode! -Britney"

Brit-Brit makes her cameo in episode two of Glee season two, in an installment which is called "Britney/Brittany" and which is being directed by series creator Ryan Murphy. At least six of Brit's songs are featured in the episode. Britney cameos in the ether-induced fever dreams of the glee-club members after they have reason to visit the town dentist—who just so happens to be played by our good friend John Stamos.

As for the other "Brit" of the episode title, the episode offers Glee fans the series' first in-depth examination of the dimmest Cheerio, Brittany, who is played by Heather Morris. (Morris, who got her start as a dancer for Beyoncé, has gone from Glee background to breakout personality over the past year.)

Morris has stated in the past that the perfect song for Brittany to do solo would be Spears' "Baby One More Time," and is indeed one of the Spears standards to appear on the show, along with "Stronger," "Ooops!...I Did It Again" and "Toxic."

Are you as excited as we are about this event episode?
