Madonna has done her guest spot on “Will & Grace.”

So has Cher, Matt Damon, Michael Douglas and Jennifer Lopez, just to name a few of the celebs who have graced the sitcom's stage.

And now, after taking several months of maternity leave, Britney Spears is returning to work with a must-see cameo of her own.

In fact, when she made her appearance on the set, she surprised and excited the studio audience so much, the show had to stop just to give her a proper introduction, much to the delight of the crowd.

“I think anybody in their right mind, any celebrity would want to be a part of that,” Britney said of her primetime cameo.

Wearing a knee-length tight red dress, the long-haired blond Britney proudly showed off her post baby body.

But the gum-chewing Spears had a close call right before one scene, when she suddenly needed to lose her gum as the director called “Action!”

Britney quickly spit it out and tossed it backstage just in time to hit the stage.

In her first primetime television episodic appearance, Britney plays a Christian conservative sidekick to Jack (Sean Hayes) on the episode “Jack Talk.”

In the episode, when “Out TV” is bought by a Christian Television Network, Spears is brought on to be Jack's new religious co-host — until Will (Eric McCormack) and Jack loosen her up. But leave it to Britney to bring her own unique additions to the talk show.

After taping her guest appearance, the pop princess talked about her comedy gig and her castmates.

“It's just hilarious and I think all the secrets that get shown through the show, it's hilarious,” Britney said.

And how did her castmates treat the music superstar?

“They are so mean to me,” she laughed. “No, they are amazing. They are so sweet.”

Catch Britney on “Will & Grace” when the episode airs March 30 on NBC.
