This Thursday will see a full night of Britney Spears on FOX, when Glee pays tribute to the pop superstar for the second time right after she’s done judging auditions on The X Factor. “Britney 2.0” will focus on Brittany S. Pierce, and FOX has released two new clips from the episode.

Speaking of Brittany, take a look at the cheerleaders doing some impressive choreography out on the football field and in the gym while performing “Hold It Against Me.”

Meanwhile, at NYADA, dance instructor Cassandra July (Kate Hudson) continues to torment Rachel during class. In the below scene, she has everyone pair up for the Tango. But guess who gets left out? Rachel, of course. “Partner up … Not you, Schwimmer. We’re short of boys, so a girl needs to sit out”

“You’re awkward and tentative in your body, and you move like you’re ashamed of it.” Ooh, burn. I wonder how many episodes will go by before Rachel has had enough of Cassandra’s bullying and stands up for herself.

Based on the “Hold It Against Me” performance, do you think this Britney Spears tribute will be better than the first one? And will Rachel ever stand up to Cassandra?

Glee airs Thursdays at 9pm on FOX.
