Jane the Virgin star Gina Rodriguez is all praises for Britney Spears after she joined her in the show.

"Incredible. Incredible. Incredible woman, super sweet, super kind," Rodriguez said. "She loved the show, that's how it actually ended up happening."

According to Rodriguez, Spears can do comedy just as she can sing and dance.

"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!"

Rodriguez also said that she has always been a fan of Spears since she was 16, so it was like a dream come true for her to share scenes Spears. She recounts her experience dancing with Spears.

"I get to dance with her! I won't tell you how or what capacity, but I got to dance with her! I'm just a better person because of it. There's a lot of my childhood that was complete yesterday."

Rodriguez couldn’t contain her excitement over having Spears on her show that she even posted a photo of them making goofy faces on her Twitter page.

"I swear I go back to that freaking picture so often 'cause I'm, like, this happened!' "

It seems like the show’s boss knew exactly how Rodriguez would react to Spears’ guest appearance that they kept the news from her until the actual day of shooting.

"I don't know anything. Jennie Snyder, the series creator doesn't tell me anything, because she knows I would tell you guys everything," Rodriguez said.

Meanwhile, Spears will resume her Las Vegas residency at The AXIS at Planet Hollywood on October 14. She is also recording her ninth album.

'We're having fun right now,” Spears said. “I'm working with some women who are amazing writers. I have ballads and, of course, dance music – fun, cheeky, sexy stuff.”
