One of pop music's biggest stars is about the hit the small screen in a cameo we've all been waiting to see. I was so excited to hear about Britney Spears on Jane the Virgin, even before I saw the sneak peek from her guest role. However, after watching the preview, I'm even more stoked. Spears is the queen of TV cameos, but this reminded me of one of my favorites — when the singer guest-starred on Sabrina the Teenage Witch.
The cameo to end all cameos came courtesy of some cross-promotion between Melissa Joan Hart's 1999 movie Drive Me Crazy and Spears' "(You Drive Me) Crazy," which appeared on the soundtrack. As a result, Hart appeared in the music video for the song and Spears made a brief, but perfect, cameo on Sabrina the Teenage Witch. You can watch the clip below, but I'll summarize: Sabrina is lonely in Paris, her dad conjures up Britney Spears — straight from the middle of a concert, no less — and the two get some quality hang-time. Not only do we get to hear Spears singing a little bit ("(You Drive Me) Crazy," of course), but the singer also dispensed some pretty good advice.
Watching the teaser for Spears' appearance on Jane the Virgin, however, I couldn't help notice some similarities. Not only does the singer seem to be playing herself, but there is a dance scene. I repeat: We get to watch Jane bust out some Britney Spears choreography with the superstar herself. Oh, and they just happen to be dancing to "Toxic." I'm officially overwhelmed by how great this is. The dance scene in particular reminds me of when Spears and Hart had a heart-to-hart (I couldn't resist) while doing some of the singer's choreography.
Additionally, we're also treated to Spears' sense of humor and her down-to-earth nature. It's been 16 — yes, 16 — years since her cameo on Sabrina, but it's nice to know that some things never change. You can check out the preview for Spears' guest appearance on Jane the Virgin below.
