Nearly every Glee star watched Super Bowl XLVII this Sunday, and plenty of them took to Twitter to gush about how much they loved Beyonce’s halftime performance.
Though most of them watched the performance on TV, two Glee actress were actually present in New Orleans during the game — and they even took the stage as backup dancers for Beyonce!
Now, we should note that we’re not talking about any of the main Glee actresses. The lucky Beyonce backup dancers are Glee dance pros Brittany Parks and Hannah Douglass, who have appeared in multiple episodes as members of the McKinley High School Cheerios.
In addition to sporting that familiar Cheerios uniform, Brittany also assists Zach Woodlee and Brooke Lipton as one of Glee’s choreographers.
Amber Riley (Mercedes) tweeted her congrats to Brittany on Super Bowl Sunday, writing, “Go @bp_parks! She’s dancing with Beyonce today :))))”
Naya Rivera (Santana) tweeted, “@bp_parks I can't wait to see you!!!!”
Meanwhile, Grant Gustin (Sebastian) couldn’t stop gushing about Hannah’s performance. “Holy Shit. Beyonce. That was an experience.@HannahDlaine you were everywhere on that and you're my epic golden hero. That was crazy.” he wrote.
You can see Brittany and Hannah in action on Glee as part of Sam (Chord Overstreet) and the Cheerios’ “Jingle Bell Rock” performance from the Season 4 Christmas episode.
As for their jaw-dropping Super Bowl performance, Brittany tweeted a behind-the-scenes photo of herself and Hannah in costume. “We did it!!!! @HannahDlaine #BeyBowl ❤” she tweeted.
As a former Beyonce backup dancer herself, we bet that fellow Cheerio Heather Morris (Brittany) is simply bursting with pride!
