CHRIS SAYS : Step Aside Lea Michele & Charice — Heather Morris Should Be The New Queen Bee Of 'Glee!'

After a long, long, long wait, the Britney Spears episode finally arrived — but it was Brittany S. Pierce who stole the show!

Every Glee fan has been waiting forever for the Sept. 28 Britney Spears episode of the show — and not because of Britney. Rather, we would finally have a chance to see fan favorite Brittany get to utter more than a few non sequiturs throughout the episode, and Heather Morris did not disappoint. She is hysterical, she can sing, and, let’s be honest, she can outdance even Ms. Spears herself!

The entire first half of the episode was almost entirely Brittany. We learned she cleans her teeth by swigging Dr. Pepper, thinks the high school newspaper editor’s hair is like a Jewish cloud, and is sick of living her life in the shadaw of that other Britney — as her name is Brittany S. Pierce!

Brittany was able to overcome her Britney-phobia however thanks to the aid of some anesthesia (don’t try this at home kids) from Uncle Jesse himself, Glee‘s new guest star John Stamos. She came back to inform the glee club she was more talented than all of them and would be performing every solo from that point on. Who cares if she thinks Christopher Cross discovered America, this girl was on a mission.

Sadly, Brittany went MIA for the episode’s second half and it showed. Artie singing ‘Stronger” was kind of just weird and all the humor and great dancing was drained out of the episode.

She did return at the end of the episode to announce she would be beginning her solo work on glee club with a Ke$ha song next week — and the producers better follow through with that!

Meanwhile, her dances to “I’m A Slave 4 U” and “Me Against the Music” made them two of Glee’s best songs — ever. And that body! She may be one of the most toned and in shape people I have ever seen in my entire life!

Heather may not have a voice like Lea Michelle or Amber Riley or Charice, but she can outdance and out funny everyone on the cast. And hey, two of of three ain’t bad!

I just applaud Ryan Murphy, the show’s creator, for finally giving us the Brittany episode we have all been waiting for! The Britney episode too!

So HollywoodLifers, did you all love Heather as much as me? Should we start her Emmy campaign now?

I agree. Get rid of Charice for that matter. She is just dead weight.

Get a life Chris, you are hallucinating. You are comparing apple and watermelon. In the world of the famous fables, it might be, it’s just like the race of the rabbit and the turtle. Even if you are a paid columnist of Heather Morris, please be fair. Open your ear wide so you can tell what’s the difference. Compare to Lea and Charice???? C’mmon wake up.

Ryan Murphy should discover and engage CHARICE more. Because she is so humble, not intimidating and not confrontentional. Nevertheless, CHARICE can dance, act and most of all a superb singer. The Glee creators will be dumbfounded as they discover her many talents – ask David Foster.

Heather Morris has great comedic timing with her one-liners, and is an amazing dancer. I liked that this episode featured her a lot and showed off her talents.
I think she has some of the best lines in the show (as do Santana and Kurt).

Heather is really, really a good dancer, but not enough to be the star of a show. And don´t forget that Heather was competing in dancing since she was a bit younger as Lea Michele did too in singing in broadway. They both had education and coached for this area. Unlike Charice who comes everything natural for her. We have to see first Charice how good, she can dance, if she will be given a chance by Ryan Murphy to show her other talent. You know, everything depends what the boss will say! Charice and Lea Michelle have both qualities to be the star of the show, something special about them which you want more to see without expecting they will do something much more, which separate Heather from them because you know what to expect from her.

Heather can dance no denying that.

But she is far from being able to carry the show. Her singing I guess is ok, with a over produced sound of any Britany song who can really tell.

Now her acting. She has no range as of yet. For her one liners the mono-toned dumb girl thing works. But give her anything else except a punch line and it goes nowhere.

Lea Michele not her best, but comparing the early dance numbers to the wild, extensive moves in the the later video is a bit moot. The comparison is never going to work. Lea did fine in replicating that video which is very tame and simplistic in comparison.

Lea does have a flexible voice and can do many genres unlike mentioned before. This song may not have been a perfect fit but still was fine.

What does Charice have to do with any of this?

Loved John Stamos, but the rest was a pass for me. Why don’t they pick a pop culture icon that can SING and has some music in their catalog that’s worth listening to.
No i-tunes downloads for me if this is the crap they’re going to record.

Didn’t say Heather’s not good :). In fact, I am amazed at the way she showcased her pop singing and dancing :). But you’re right, the storyline’s a bit boring and uninteresting. Maybe she will rise to stardom as a pop artist? :) She has to establish her own identity though, and not be shaded with a Britney Spears identity.

It probably was made boring so to make viewers get some ‘Britney Spears hallucinations’ :).

Heather was really good with the pop singing and I think she is an excellent dancer. Lea Michelle, on the other hand, is a big disappointment with the ‘Baby One More Time’ number. Her voice just doesn’t fit and the dancing was very lousy. The problem with Lea is her voice is not as flexible (meaning, can sound good in any kind of song) as Charice. Also, have yet to see Charice do a dance number :).

I agree the Madonna episode had a great story line, written well, this one was so off, bad writing, and the lines these characters have to say are so dumb, I didnt get it, it was quite bad

Wow, you change your view faster than express train. She´s good but not that good. She may have a body better than Britney and better dancer than her too, but it took a lot of years hardwork, achievements and recognitions for Britney before reaching where she is now! It´s a good episode but I don´t get any goosebumps! Honestly I didn´t finish the whole episode because I felt my excitement is fading away and I need my sleep. Well, as Ellen De Generes once said, “You can smell a star when you see one”. She maybe heading to be a star, but I think she needs to wait a little bit longer.

I agree, Heather is a very good dancer, but tonight’s overall GLEE episode was quite boring — the story line almost put me to sleep — had to get up so many times to keep me awake. Last week’s story line was great, but tonight was the exact opposite.

She can dance but she can’t act so no to an emmy. One liners fine but give her any dialogue and it is delivered the exact same way every time.

The episode has no plot is was basically a music video to show off Heathers dance skills and I saw that in the previews.

The only exception is the only song worth while.

I thought this was a great episode. Sure, it didn’t have much of a storyline, but it sure was entertaining! AND I have been waiting for the episode when they featured the Brittany character! She is a hoot! AND she can dance like no one else on that show. I am so glad the producers finally gave her an opportunity to show her talents. I love Lea Michelle, but I don’t need to hear her sing every week. Show the talents of ALL of the characters!

This episode sucked. It seemed more like an infomercial for Britney Spears than a tv show. There was no storyline. It looked like they threw something together just to use her music. The Madonna episode was so much better. It seemed like they had the episode written and than added her music.

She’s ok. Her dancing does not make up for the fact that she isn’t a strong singer. Singing is what Glee is about, not dancing.

Nah. I’d lose interest in Glee if Heather reigns as queen. Lead star must be a great singer and actress. Dancing skills optional. But I do love Heather’s one-liners!
