'Glee' cast bests Beatles on Billboard Hot 100

glee-heather-morris-502-slave-320.jpgThanks to Britney Spears, the "Glee" cast is now bigger than The Beatles.

Okay, we exaggerate, but the cast of FOX's musical show will surpass the legendary rock band on Thursday, Oct. 7 when they debut six new songs on the Billboard Hot 100 (dated for Oct. 16) from the "Britney/Brittany" episode, according to Billboard.

They will then officially have the most non-solo acts in the chart's 52-year history. The Beatles have 71 charted titles, but once the new "Glee" songs are added, the cast's number will be upped to 75. The songs include "I'm a Slave 4U," "Me Against the Music," "Stronger," "Baby One More Time," "Toxic" and Paramore's "The Only Exception."

The "Glee" cast also has the Beatles to thank for their new bragging rights. Their cover of "Hello Goodbye" is among those 75 songs. On the Tuesday, Oct. 5 episode, the character Kurt (C hris Colfer) also sang the Beatles' "I Want to Hold Your Hand," so that will soon be added to the Hot 100.

Once the Oct. 16 chart is released, the "Glee" cast has only two more musicians to surpass for most Hot 100 songs overall -- James Brown with 91 songs and Elvis Presley with 108. Get to work, Gleeks.
