‘Glee’ season 4 spoilers: Alex Newell shines in Britney Spears tribute photos

When you think of Britney Spears tribute episodes and “Glee,” there is probably one name that almost immediately comes to mind: Heather Morris. With that in mind, it comes as a little bit of a surprise that she is not actually the actor who takes center stage for the images released so far from Fox; rather, it is Alex Newell’s character of Unique, who seems to be all but confirmed as a member of New Directions thanks in part to what we are seeing from him here.

Based on the photo to the left, it looks as though Newell is going to be fully embracing the Unique rather than the Wade this coming season, and is going to even perform an enthusiastic number as a part of gym class. There is also another photo showing him alongside new cast member Melissa Benoist and returning star Jenna Ushkowitz, and despite him not winning the first season of “The Glee Project” or even coming in the top 2, we are starting to have a feeling that he may end up being the real winner here after all.

In addition to these photos, there are also a number of other images showing off New Directions, plus a rather steamy performance from Rachel Berry in New York to go along with a photo where she looks very happy to see her new upperclassman friend at NYADA Brody (Dean Geyer). Are there some serious sparks that are about to fly? Based on this photo, it’s next to impossible to rule these two out, and Finn (Cory Monteith) could be in trouble if he doesn’t turn his face back up at McKinley High at some point in the near future.

What do you make of some of these photos? If you want to check out some more scoop about Cory’s storyline for the coming season, be sure to visit the link here.
