Britney Spears can hold her own, comedically.

That's what Gina Rodriguez, star of the hit CW show Jane the Virgin, had to say about her co-star.

Yes, Britney Spears will guest star on season two of the Golden Globe-winning show.

“She definitely got comedy chops like nobody’s business, and to go head-to-head with Jaime [Camil] is like, the ultimate challenge for a comedic actress because he’s so incredible. She held her own and more. She was very, very good!” said Rodriguez.

Jamie Camil plays Jane's father.

Rodriguez is clearly a big fan of Britney Spears, having grown up on her music.

"Britney Spears was my pop star. You know what I'm saying? She's my era, she's a few years older than me. I remember just being 16 and wishing I was Britney."

Here's what she had to say about a particular dance scene:

"I won't even tell you why or in what capacity … I'm just a better person because of it ... There's a lot of my childhood that was complete yesterday."

Jane the Virgin isn't the only hit TV show that Britney Spears (may) be stopping by. Recently, rumors suggested that Britney Spears would have a spot on season four of Netflix's Orange Is The New Black – but those are sketchy at best. The rumors seem to stem from one of the show's stars, Taryn Manning, saying she would love it if Spears signed on.

Hiii from me and Lexie! ??
